Appalling story of World War 1

This book tries to describe the loss and suffering of those left behind after WW1, in England and France. The author uses the technique of writing of times past ( the actual fighting), and the present time (Post WW1), , chopping and changing between time periods. This “modern” but confusing style, leaves the listener trying to both remember what happened in the past and, at the same time, work out what was supposed to be happening now. Different narrators read the voices of the men and women.

In short, a confusing, overwritten, drawn out story, that only frustrates the listener. A waste of time.

Bit drawn out

The middle of the book was a bit drawn out for me. Thought the story could have progressed a bit quicker.

It’s a Journey

That was a journey and a half! Descriptive writing throughout and yet at times, a little too much. However, you have to follow the journey and to find out the truth. It’s worth a listen to.
