Anonymous posts on 3/29/2006 4:18:21 PM Timothy Findley is an amazing author, this was on of the best novels that I have ever read. It was far more intersting than a "normal" war novel filled with blood and guts and the notion that everyone that is involved in war is made out to be a hero

The Master posts on 1/29/2006 5:34:31 PM This novel deals with many internal and external sturggles. I'm taking it as you have read the book, if not you should. The external conlicts are obvious. The actual War, north americans fighting germans. it deals with the fraility of life, the effects of war on living creatures, and glimpses of insight to the horror of violence. The internal conflicts within Robert, are untimatly end in his demise. He struggles with being placed in a world of unknow. His family also play an improtant role in this. He is rushed off into a forgein county, without accepting the death of his sister, Rowena, and accepting the loose ends he will never fix with his mother. The punishment he places himself in ultimately ends when he realizes that this is a state of madness, where everyone is acting inhuman and destroying themselves.
