'The Junior Officer’s Reading Club' by Patrick Hennessey
This book was interesting because it was written by a soldier, who has taken part in recent wars. The style, which moves between short sharp descriptions of actual happenings and longer more thoughtful passages, works to give a feeling of immediacy balance by an intellectual opinion. It deals well with the feelings of soldiers – the excitement of the battle, the boredom of between times and the frustration and violence of adjustment on returning home.
Our group had mixed reactions to the book, but it produced an interesting discussion, as it covered a wide range of issues.
