I'm a highly believer that most of the time we don't choose the book but that the book chooses us, and it does when it thinks it's time. That happened with this book.
This beautiful work of art narrates, through travels in time and comments verging on dark humor, the life of a common person that had to take part in the war as an US soldier.
It's one of the books that made me feel the most the description of the life during war time, as a soldier, as a somewhat prisoner (because they didn't went through half of what jewish prisoners went through). It seemed to me so real, and I guess that despite being fiction it's based on real stories and people and only someone that was there can write something like that.
I loved it and felt it in my bones, it's just so good.
