This book was about the Vietnam War. This war was after the First and Second World War. This would've been a realistic fiction book because people might have actually sent letters to their loved ones on that time. This war was real but the only thing that might not be real are the the characters. A main theme that came out of this book is love because to show that the brothers really love each other, they play together, they both loved cricket and they couldn't be separated. But when Jason has to go to war Leigh is alone. On the weekends all he ever talked about was the Vietnam War. This made me connect to all the wars in the world because there was a lot of wars over many years and this is one of them.
You might like this book because it is about war. It is good to learn about history and their mistakes. I was interested in this book because i didn't know that much about the Vietnam War. You might also like this book because you might know how some characters feel, because you might have experienced their pain or you can connect to them. You might have known someone that went to war and never came back.
