The Standard Grand by Jay Baron Nicorvo

Spanning just a year in the lives of several people, this book encompasses a whole spectrum of emotions and actions.

The book deals with current issues and those that have still not been resolved. War veterans returning to an empty life, no direction, no care. The book is very heavy and at times it did seem to drag but it is good reading and shows how great the impact of American interference in the Middle East has created. The havoc played on the minds, families and hearts of the American people alone is enough for generations to come.

I cannot say I enjoyed the read, but it was compelling reading.

  1. Sometimes the most important books are not enjoyable. War veterans are neglected. We would love to believe our government's actions are for good reasons, but we know that is not always the case. If we send young men to war, then they have the right to expect a way to re-enter society and concern for their well-being.

  2. You always find such interesting books. This sounds interesting too.
