What if your life changes in the blink of an eye?
Captain Tom Barnes is leading British troops into a war zone when he gets injured by an exploding IED. This horrible moment and the upcoming months that follow the accident are narrated by forty-five objects, telling one hell of a story.
The biggest reason why I picked up this book was because of the amazing cover. It is a huge eye catcher and I just bought it before actually knowing what it is about. So, before reading I actually didn’t know that the story was narrated by objects. Which actually was a pleasant surprise! I never read a book before that narrates through objects, which makes this book a one-of-a-kind.
Of course, you’ll need some time to get used to this writing style, but when you do, you’ll be captivated by the story! This book made me feel so many emotions, and I ended up loving it so much!
It was the type of book that made you think about those who are fighting for our freedom. It was for sure a book that gave me goosebumps!
For those who are a bit more sensitive, I would not recommend this book, because it describes everything in detail. It describes things the way they are, not how it would look if it was perfect.
I gave it 5 out of 5 stars, and I would definitely recommend it!
