I chose to read it because I am interested in cognizing the facts about the wars. and this is nonfiction novel and is based upon a Marine. Most of the novel takes topographic point in the preparation centre for freshly recruit Mariness. Ryan Smithson decides to be a portion of the U. S Marine when he was in the high school ; after 9/11. He feels for his people. his state and the whole existence. His end is to function the U. S Marine as a modesty. a military personal who takes topographic point of a Marine who has been deported to a state for war. The supporter of the narrative is Ryan himself. a 19 twelvemonth adolescent seeking to be a U. S Marine. The adversary of the narrative is the troubles he has to confront to successfully be a U. S Marine. I think the narrative revolves round Ryan.
My favourite thing about the book is that how it shows the spirit of a adolescent desiring to function his state. This provides the reader the same spirit and encouragement to contend with the obstructions that might come in the close hereafter ; to carry through their purpose in life. I would decidedly mention this book to adolescents and those who are interested in the things traveling about Iraq because this novel besides specializes on the war traveling on Iraq.
