Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk by Ben Fountain
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is a fantastic book, I loved it.
It really highlights what it's like to be 19 and not know what you're doing as you're made into a soldier, then a hero, then a commodity in the greatest country on earth.
Well written with satire and Destiny's Child, the book grabs you at the beginning and holds you to the end.
Rather than deliver answers, it presents more questions.
As the book says:
"Maybe the light's at the other end of the tunnel."
