Day 07 – Most Underrated Book An Unexpected Good Read:

The unexpected good book: Simple.

At War's End by Perry, Anne. I was just at the Veteran's hospital, in a waiting room one day, when I found this book. My Grandma and uncle were trying to get a meeting with a man who would later direct us to another man who would talk about my Grandpa's disability coverage. I just wanted something to read, to take my mind off of the situation I had been thrust roughly into, I had expected to be there for a while. We weren't. I had expected to like the book. I did. 
Now I can't find the book anywhere. I got twenty pages in and was hooked, unfortunately I had to leave because my Grandma was leaving. Little had I known that At War's End was two books in one, it included both "At Some Disputed Barricade", "We Shall Not Sleep" now I have placed them both one hold and am determined to finally finish the wondrously frank rendering of war.

  1. Oh no! You're better than me. I probably would have stolen it and brought it back after I finished it. ;)
