After a divorce, a newspaper reporter decides to cover the war in the Middle East. He heads overseas but can't get any access to what is going on. He runs into a man that he heard of while still in the United States who claims that he was part of an experimental army unit that trained psychic soldiers. The reporter travels with the man, who says he is on a mission that relates to the psychic unit. He listens as the man have flashbacks about his training and gets to know the different psychic soldiers in the unit through the stories.
Best part of story, including ending:
I loved this story because though it was a ludicrous story line, it was taken very seriously and had some real elements of truth to it.
Best scene in story:
My favorite scene was probably the flashback where the commander of the psychic unit forces all the recruits to the unit to relax and dance. It was just a really good juxtaposition to see the serious looking soldiers letting loose and dancing.
Opinion about the main character:
I really liked the characters desire to believe. He didn't think that logically he should believe the stories but he really wanted to believe them.
