I am a former stay-at-home mom who has given up her hopes and dreams of becoming a professional reader. I now spend my days showing small children how to play games on computers. Right now I'm living vicariously through my 9 year-old who is reading everything she can get her hands on.
I'm calling it quits on this one. I have picked it up twice since winter break started and it is just not working for me. For people interested in military historical fiction, this will probably be a great book for you. For me, however, the endless drilling and marching is too much. I'm done waiting for something to happen. Break is too short for me to keep reading books that aren't working. I might come back at a different time.
