It took me 5 months to get through this book - in the meantime I read 9 other books. I just could not get "hooked". I found it very confusing as characters are introduced and then don't show up again for a long time. And each time a character reappears, only a little more is revealed - very frustrating. There were some humorous parts and some very sad parts. It was a scathing commentary on war and the futility of war, but I did not enjoy the book.
