American War by Omar El Akkad



american war


I had really high expectations for this book and was kind of let down by it. It was a good novel but I went into it expecting so much more. The main character was kind of unlikable. I mean, I found myself rooting for her at times but a lot of the time I just did not like her. She was a strong female character which was nice. I kind of predicted the ending but I am pretty sure that the author wanted the readers to predict it. I think that’s why the book was written the way it was and there was foreshadowing.

The book was devastating. I expected that and if you aren’t into books that deals with sadness and grief then this book probably isn’t for you.

Rating this book I give it 3 out of 5 stars.
