Not even five minutes ago, I finished reading "War" by Sebastian Junger. From the first sentence, to the first chapter, and through to the end, including the bibliography and acknowledgements, I could not put this book down. It's funny. It's sad. It's awe-inspiring. It's poetic. It's fucking incredible.
I could have chosen another word, possibly a much less profane word, but that wouldn't be honest. I've read a lot of good books, especially since I bought my Kindle. This book stands out above the rest. It's not "pro" war. It's not "anti" war. It's just an honest first-hand experience of being closely involved with a group of men trying to maintain sanity in an insane surrounding, and looking out for one another. What can I say: I was floored. I hope you will read it also.
