War He w You know this
#book was on #was on shelf for uite a while and I am really glad I buckled down and read itI m going to call the book out though It actually looks like it was written for film When they start the book Eric Walters really tries to build up the intensity Honestly the reason of the story doesn t start until the half way part I m not saying the beginning is bad Just the opposite There is actually heart in the first half You see in the first three chapters ou are literally know everything about the atmosphere how they liveand even how strong the chemistry is between Marcus and really everyone else in the story This start up is just amazing and it lays the set out perfectlyThe relationship between Courtney and Marcus is perfectly cute You have this touching way that they are trying to help each other When ever these two were put together it gives the story a nice slow pace for them to talk Something I really want to shout out to him for is the amazing open mindedness he creates in his books The same way Camp 30 created a fine line between German s and Nazi s this book creates a
fine line between the Residents and Terrorists the Canadian Soldiers fight against I don tline between the Residents and Terrorists the Canadian Soldiers fight against I don t many war books but the information offered is interestingSince this book is based on a a mentally wounded soldier ou know there are going to be some stories from the war line and the imagery is not good I would have eased up on the details Even though they are to a degree toned down BUT this is a war book and as is how do ou criticize that in a book like thisIt s gore but its war based bookCan t eat Hummer your cake and keep it too concept For the next ten chaptersou know the story is really about to start soon and it s going to hit hard I was actually dreading reading this because of how deep down the rabbit hole is was going to goDid it have that hard impact I expected No not at all I actually went in a direction I didn t expect which actually made this book realisticI do wish his sister was in the story through the last half But she seems to just disappear for the most part Without handing anything out the end fits perfectly with what the book offers us through out the story Through the last half of the book all the certain uirks and sparks of anger shows everyone in the book needs therapy without is hammering it into the reader a very good book a little bit of violists here and there Marcus has one sister but there waiting until his dad gets back from Afghanistan Like how Eric Walters did not tell With Baited Breath (Warhammer 40,000) you he letou figure it out Wounded was one of the books that I thought would have things that would be too boring to read but I was wrong Wounded brings into a life of a boy who has

But Comes Back As Acomes back as a man He was wounded not physically but wounded inside of himI picked this book up because I have always been interested in war novels and the very title was very dramatic so I decided to give the book a tryI finished this book because of the uncertainty of the end of each chapter foreshadowing so I just couldn t stop reading this book until the end came and left me lost and dazzled because of the constant foreshadowing so I was left with the end which was very weird compared to the end of the other chaptersI would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in war novels particularly Kevish with a little hint of romancewhich is the part I didn t like or those people who love to foreshadow and keep reading for hours since the setting is modern day warfare and with all the hints of the future this book is great for them Story DescriptionPenguin Group Canada April 20 2010 Mass Market Paperbound ISBN 978 0 14 317178 2Marcus and his sister are counting down the days until their father comes home from Afghanistan When the big day arrives the family is overcome by happiness and relief that he is safe but as the days pass Marcus begins to feel that there is something different about his father Barely sleeping obsessed with news from Afghanistan and overly aggressive his dad refuses to seek counselling Marcus knows post traumatic stress disorder affects many soldiers and he needs to get his dad some help before it is too late My ReviewFifteen Spiritual Warfare for Every Christian year old Marcus s father is stationed in Afghanistan serving as part of the Special Forces team His mother Carol andounger sister Megan live on the base which Marcus prefers He feels comfortable living there and feels how could anybody who didn t have a parent serving overseas know what
