This was a Sunday-afternoon, can’t-think-of-a-thing-I’d-rather-do-than-read-this kind of book. Now, I realize that tag implies a light, fluffy, beach book. And this wasn’t that. It was simply interesting.
Conceptually, the story is interesting. I’m purposely not saying anything more, because it wasn’t a terrible book, and you might want to judge for yourself. I personally always like quests. And this was a pretty cool catalyst and outcome (if only Perdu would’ve gotten over himself at some point).
This book read like the best Tom Clancy novel. I figured out how it ended partway through, and I still stayed up until 2am to finish it.
A Chaplain’s Duty is a compilation of letters that Reverend Knapp wrote home during World War II. That’s not the sort of book I usually like to read.
I usually don’t love books set in this time period because the age was so hard on women. I can’t seem to reconcile the romanticism of the period with the reality, and makes me very uncomfortable when I read about it. But this book was different.
I often find juvenile fiction to be better written than fiction for adults. This book does nothing to disabuse me of that notion.
