Too Many Implausible Decisions in This Story

We did not finish this book. A weak, insipid main character, who makes a fatal choice at the beginning that we could not quite believe, followed by many other such events--too many to draw us into the story. Characters were not nuanced, and sometimes the author made us endure painfully slow scenes with a blow-by-blow we weren't interested in. We didn't get to the end of Part One.

Well told story with great narrator.

The author captures the human cost of the civil war and shows that there are no winners - except perhaps those who find the courage to carry on with their lives in spite of the brutality and their own miscalculation.
