Journal Entry 1 by Tintti from Tampere, Pirkanmaa / Birkaland Finland on Sunday, December 10, 2006

This was no ordinary war. This was a war to make the world safe for democracy. And if democracy was made safe, then nothing else mattered - not the millions of dead bodies, nor the thousands of ruined lives...This is no ordinary novel. This is a novel that never takes an easy way out: it is shocking, violent, terrifying, horrible, uncompromising, brutal, remorseless and gruesome...but so is war.

I read this book more than ten years ago, when I was maybe sixteen or seventeen, and I remember being extremely impressed by it. I should read it again. I actually have tried some years ago, I think, because I found a bookmark on page 123 (about halfway through the book), but for some reason I haven't finished the book then. I might try again, but as I think it is an important book and everyone should read it, I'm setting its status to "available".

I'm going to finish the last chapter on the train today. I'm heading to Helsinki to see a monologue based on this book. More comments later...
