This book caught me from the beginning. The setting prior to the war was outlined very well and I found myself being drawn to, as well as most enjoying, the parts of the book which related back to the ... Consulter l'avis complet

I had to read this for my grade 12 English class, and I have to say that it is, without a doubt, one of the worst books I have ever read. It has horrible pacing, and no consistency as to the "Voice ... Consulter l'avis complet

Avis d'utilisateur  - Rick Patterson - Goodreads

Simply one of the best novels ever, this is a stunning read because it immerses the reader so completely into the experience of Robert Ross that it's hard to extract oneself afterward. I found myself ... Consulter l'avis complet

There are two really great things going on in Timothy Findley's The Wars. Firstly, is the narrative technique. The book is written from the perspective of a historian trying to make sense of a moment ... Consulter l'avis complet
