Book Review — What It Is Like to Go to War by Karl Marlantes

What It Is Like to Go to WarWhat It Is Like to Go to War by Karl Marlantes
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Fantastic idea, poor execution.

Karl Marlantes has the experience of a combat veteran, but simply doesn’t have the writing chops to pull off a good book. Honestly, I learned infinitely more about war and its effects on people by reading Joe Abercrombie’s The Heroes.

Also, the book was littered with too much religious and spiritual mumbo jumbo that detracted heavily from the rest of the prose.
