Great story, there are parts you want to re-read and ponder on. Steinbeck has a brilliant mind. I enjoyed the Grapes of Wrath more, the characters were more engaging and real, and I like to get to know the characters in a book. In "The Winter." Ethan is not what he appears and I will probably get to know him better when I re-read the book.

Eye opening

I have always been interested in history and agriculture and thought I had a good idea of Australian history but this book amazed me with how little I really knew. So much valuable research, so interesting, unbiased, factual, and eye-opening. This should be compulsory for all farmers, school students, policymakers, in fact, we should all read it. I cannot rate it highly enough. I will be sending copies to my friends and buying a hard copy to read and re-read. The narration was flawless.

Gets better midway with a superb ending

Insightful look at Japanese indoctrination and the herd mentality towards war and dying honorably for their power hungry emperor sadly hiroshito was never tried for being the war monger that he was thanks to mcarthur I particularly loved the main characters summation of the futility of war in the last few paragraphs
