I wasn't sure about this book at first. It started very slow and I wasn't sure what direction the author was going. Once you get past the setup the book is a great read. It is booth too disturbing to read and to enthralling to put down. I like the open-endedness of the ending No matter which way it truly turned out it is tragic tale of the long lasting effects of war and family dysfunction.

This book lived up to what I'd read about it keeping you guessing, and I love how O'Brien worked in the historical pieces of the story. However, I was disappointed at the ending...and maybe there was no other way it could have wrapped up, but I still felt very let down.
