This story took me a while to get into but all in all the writing was very good though I'm not sure I loved the story. ( )

This was another one it took me a much longer time to get through then I thought it would. Initially I didn't want to read this title at all b/c I thought it was strictly a war title and wasn't up for the blood and gore. Then I realized it was more of an after the war title and it seemed like the focus would be the whole town. After reading it I feel like the book was about the whole town (and beyond) in relation to Cam, but that was okay b/c I found Cam pretty interesting. This was a book all about people and I like seeing how people tick so it worked for me. I wish I had been able to read it more together b/c then I would have enjoyed it more. ( )

This is one of those books that is deceptively simple on the surface, but is actually quite complex when it comes time to describe or classify it. I put it on the "historical" and "fantasy" shelf, though it doesn't really fit on either of those shelves. It doesn't fit on any of my genre shelves, actually, and it reminds me quite strongly of Meg Rosoff's How I Live Now in many ways; not in its language, of course, but in its themes of war, loss, and family, as well as its timelessness. Rosoff's book takes place in the real world, but the rural farmhouse in England could almost be anywhere, and the war described could be any war (we don't even find out who the invading army is or why they're invading), and that's the point; so it is with this book, which takes place in a non-magical agrarian world that isn't our world, but at least to me, strongly evokes its past. They both resonant on the same frequency and make me think about and feel the same things, and they both have sadness and hope in the way the war's survivors are portrayed; of course the extremely different ways they are written mean that people who love one won't necessarily be enamored of the other, but I think they make for an extremely rich comparison.

Once I am not so buried, I will try to write a longer review, and maybe I will go reread How I Live Now when I do so, but in the meantime, I don't think this slow-moving, odd but beautiful book will appeal to a wide audience (especially among teens), but those who have the patience for it to unfold will find a lot to think about. I'm glad I didn't give up after the first 70-some pages but I can't fault anyone who did; it's a niche book, but a good one. ( )
