It may be that I dislike this book because it was forced on me, or it could be that I simply could not even like the protagonist, I'm not sure.
I usually love war fiction, no matter where it's set, but this just didn't do it for me.
It was like reading a babbling eight year-old's story that he'd just made up, and I get a headache just thinking about it. It didn't flow right for me.
I now can't walk past a privet hedge without thinking of this bloody book.
