Really grabs you and makes you pay attention. I thought it was rather graphic and terrifying...although I read it WHILE my husband was a corpsman fighting in Iraq. If you have a loved one overseas, save this for when they get back. It makes everything even more terrifying.

After your loved one is safe, I highly recommend reading this book. It almost offers you a "field-trip" into their life for however long they were over there. It gives you a good basis to understand why they come back "different" and helps you to keep your patience when it's the hardest thing imaginable.

It also gives you hope that they will "adjust" and be mostly back to normal eventually.
