I ve always been interested in how the relationship between guys works, especially brothers It s a relationship I can t experience myself, so my interest is peaked when I see a book about brothers.In this story we have two brothers, Levi and Boaz Boaz is the older brother who is perfect in every way, well at least in Levi s eyes Their family is surprised by Boaz s decesion to join the Marines and fight in the Iraq war They plead with him not to go, but his mind is set, he s going It s been I ve always been interested in how the relationship between guys works, especially brothers It s a

way, well at least in Levi s eyes Their family is surprised by Boaz s decesion to join the Marines and fight in the Iraq war They plead with him not to go, but his mind is set, he s going It s been a whole year now and Boaz is coming back home Levi can t help but feel that things won t be the same as they were Their mother always on edge and Boaz hardly had any contact with them while he was overseas When Boaz returns he locks himself in his room, and for reasons unknown is planning a trip on foot Levi has the great need to find out if he can find the brother he used to know, or maybe find out how to live with the new one.I m glad the author chose to do it from the younger brother s point of view It gives the unique view of how much war affects not only the people in the front lines, but also the family and friends they have back home They all have to deal with the new people they have become when they come back It s hard for Levi to understand what Boaz has went through because Boaz just clams up, but my hat goes off to Levi because even though it seems like it s hopeless he keeps trying.The author also did a good job of describing Levi s life his mom, dad and grandpa, Jewish lifestyle, and loyal friends Pearl and Zim If you are lookng for a pro or anti war book, this isn t the book you are looking for The book doesn t take a stand on either side, but focuses on the relationhip of brothers and how they don t always have to be bonded by blood Even though Boaz and Levi won t be the same, they ll be ok it s just one of the things a brother knows I could easily read another couple hundred pages of this, but at the same time I think it s just long enough.It s concise, but beautifully written in its dryness the kind of writing that once in a while just hits you with a particularly piercing and visual sentence.It tells the story it wants to tell nothing , nothing less in about three hours of reading It s complete, but clearly, tangibly just a beginning.The relationship between siblings is something that s always fascinated me, an I could easily read another couple hundred pages of this, but at the same time I think it s just long enough.It s concise, but beautifully written in its dryness the kind of writing that once in a while just hits you with a particularly piercing and visual sentence.It tells the story it wants to tell nothing , nothing less in about three hours of reading It s complete, but clearly, tangibly just a beginning.The relationship between siblings is something that s always fascinated me, and I love the way it s portrayed here, because it feels real as far as I know, it is, and if it isn t for everyone, I know for certain that it is at least for someone.The entire Katznelson family is one you grow to feel for an incredible amount, despite spending so little time with them in terms of pages.Levi in particular is a wonderful character pretty much an average kid, delightfully normal, butthan a little amazing in his own right, brave and funny, but not in a showy, deliberately humourous way.And Boaz Honestly I still know fuck all about Boaz.But I love him That right there says something about the strength of this story as a novel and as a collective portrait.Picking their relationship back up and working through the space that has come between is an extremely difficult process for Levi and Bo, and the way Reinhardt narrates it you can feel it in your bones And that that s what makes the resolution that is not actually a resolution but will satisfy you all the same all therewarding.It s a delicate but concrete story about friendship, brotherhood and change, with the war in the background a silent, but imposing background.It s the kind of story everyone should read This is one of those books I think everyone should read As a wife of a military man and coming from a long line of military folks, I m already biased toward this book That said, I ll admit that this book was hard to get into at the beginning It moved slowly, was a bit confusing and aggravating the way nothing seemed to happen or change BUT, thinking back on the times I ve faced similar circumstances of soldier homecomings,

I m already biased toward this book That said, I ll admit that this book was hard to get into at the beginning It moved slowly, was a bit confusing and aggravating the way nothing seemed to happen or change BUT, thinking back on the times I ve faced similar circumstances of soldier homecomings, this is exactly what it is like The author has done an amazing job of portraying the confusion, waiting, desperation and frustration that a family feels with a soldier s homecoming The road trip portion of the story was lovely Perhaps a bit unrealistic for the majority of soldiers but, in this case, was written with strong enough characters to pull it off Although it seems to end abruptly, to anyone having gone through something similar it will be familiar there s a point where you either give up or move on Poignant story, would be fabulous ifpeople would read it and understand that sometimes even heroes fall, even if it s only done in the privacy of their own home with only their family as
