    One thought on “Shrapnel”

    1. Kept me up until 3 in the morning reading Saved a few pages for this morning though, as I hate to finish a good book I must admit, I didn t like the main character, Bing Butler, very much at first But little by little, the author brings out his life story as he adjusts to a move across country to live with his daughter and her family We learn about Bing s successes, failures and regrets Truly a lesson that you are never too old to learn and grow emotionally I also enjoyed the references to Hunti [...]

    2. I adore a classic theme with a twist, my favourite motif is self discovery As I marvel at the courage and strength possessed by a character forging his own path, I feel proud and genuinely happy for the accomplishment I tend to close these books feeling satisfied Usually, the person that I m admiring is a teen, or a young adult Things change dramatically when the person embarking on this journey is a seventy seven year old, WWII veteran Recently widowed and forced to leave his home in Texas to l [...]

    3. Recommended to me by j.v.I am so glad I read this book Three generations deal with life s passing from several different perspectives This is a thoughtful story, and well worth the time.

    4. Amazing bookI still think about Bing and wonder if a second book is coming His character is so real, so like someone you probably know Totally engaging, tremendously engaging A MUST read again kinda book
