Journal Entry 4 by Hawkette from Sydney, New South Wales Australia on Monday, August 18, 2003

8 out of 10

This book is full of emotional ups and downs. Love around the horrors of war. And individual spirit.
I had heard bad reports about this book from a friend, and I can understand where she was coming from...but you need to stick it out. The initial chapters seem a bit all over the place, but the developing story of Carlos keeps you going, and then the depths of the characters are established, and then you're hooked!
I found the very last image a little odd, given tht it didn't really polish things off for me. I mean, sure, lost youth and all, but, hmmm...
