on 18 May 2015
I read this because my son was studying it at school and his English teacher recommended it to me at parents evening. Personally, I found it boring and didn't enjoy it much. I watched the film with my son also which I also found boring. Just my opinion though as so many other people have been shocked by this and said vote good the book (and film) are so it's likely just my personally taste as I think it's crucial to recognise, remember & acknowledge the part animals played in war so for that reason it's a good thing.
