American War

41zx9o-GxtL._SY346_I have read a good deal of positive press about American War by Omar El Akkad. And, there are other futuristic books I have enjoyed, so it seemed like a good one to pick up. It’s a story of a woman who lives through another American Civil War, which, of course, is not so difficult to believe. And, while the first half hummed along at a good clip, I got mired in the middle and at the three-quarter mark, I just wanted to be done with it already. I didn’t really like any of the characters and the war itself was somewhat dense and hard to follow. I wouldn’t grab this one if I were you.
