This is one of those books that you get to and your like “Why haven’t I read this before”. I should have probably read it in high school, but I have not gotten to it until now. This is another classic that surprised me. I really enjoyed this far more than I thought I would. My average rating was 3 in 2016 and this book was a 4, which I think says a lot. It is not my all time favorite book but I would read it again. The book is about a young man’s experience joining the war effort. Very good. I really recommend.
