Set in rural Iraq in 2008, a nameless narrator dictates several of many memories concerning his surreal and disorienting world in regards to his longing for home, the despair of loss, the brief moments of action and their effects. This is a work of fiction. Much like the months it is loosely based on, this novel is not about some grand lesson of life. It is instead is a faithful recitation of circumstances, none of which are beyond the realm of what is possible or even likely in this modern conflict which had been part of America for over seven years. Great care has been taken to convey the essence of these experiences, which were oftentimes disorienting, surreal, uneven, and repetitive.

    This book seems very honest, but harsh. Having been to Iraq, I can say that the descriptions of places and certain events are very accurate and written by someone who has also been there. Were it not for the "disclaimer" at the beginning of the book, I would say that it is somewhat laden with bravado. But as it is, I understand the necessity to assist to narrative, and like Mr. Jakob says, this is fiction. The imagery is excellent and through. In what seems to be a nod to "Heart of Darkness" the characters have no names. Also, the chapters are not placed in a linear fashion, making the progress of time somewhat disorienting, but this could very well have been intentional in order to get a point across. On the whole I would say that this novel is excellent and well written, is not somewhat harsh and depressing.
