it took me a while to get into the book, but once i got into it started to make more sense and it was actually a pretty good book. crane does a very good job of showing all the struggles the main character has: hero v. coward; moral v. unmoral; and even life & death struggles. i don't think i would have chosen to read this book if i didn't have to for school, but it was actaully good and i'm glad i had to read it. i got a sense of what war is like from a common soldier. for someone to enjoy this book though, i think one must be able to read a variety of books or else you prolly won't like it... just my opinion though!!
