Es and racism What a fantastic book Once again I find myself conflicted The story
Was Compelling And I Like compelling and I like way he draws the characters however this book was 551 pages So much could have been tightened up and I find his repeating of specific things to be irritating Do we really need constant references to his beloved watch given to him by the love of his life it seems to be in every other page That My files at work are corrupted it ll
TAKE THE CRACK IT TEAM DAYSthe crack IT team days to straighten it out So I Re Wrote This re wrote this AgainThere s no party here unless you feel a tea party with your 95 year old aunt who continually reminisces about having sex with Warren G Harding whilst atop a llama counts as a good time If so I have ust the book for youThings you can do with this bookUse it prop up a shortened leg on a piece of furniture It s about an inch thick 254 millimeters if you live in Nazi CanadaUse it as an argument that both a movie and book can suck Using Twilight as your prime example gets old Plus the movie has a phoned in Bruce Willis performance If you have enough copies you can build a dwelling out of them Hey the pioneers used sodUse it as kindling When I was a Boy Scout my fire igniting abilities were terrible This a pack of matches and violaTear out the pages and make origami boarsShred it and use it in your cat s litter boxShred it and line your bird cageRead it or better yet gift it out to that relative or friend you don t likeThe best way to describe this book is if John Grisham was drunk and he wrote The Great Escape or Stalag 17 It places a courtroom drama within the confines of a German prisoner of war camp The book is excruciatingly predictable Every time the author introduces a hackneyed plot point you know it s going to have significance later in the bookConflict between Black airman and Southern racist Check Main character has claustrophobia CheckCagey German soldier is hiding some key bit of information CheckReading different authors back to back uxtaposes the best and worst between the two My previous book was by El Leonard who has a crisp matter of fact style Leonard has said that when he goes over what he writes and if it sounds like writing he rewrites it This author should have heeded this advice As I came across overwrought bits of dialogue or hackneyed descriptions of emoting characters I thought it would make an interesting drinking game Example when characters got angry they clenched their fists ground their teeth flushed red or shook their fists etc They did this often and the descriptions rarely wavered If the reader took a shot of something alcoholic every time he came across passages like this it might improve the reading experience but I doubt itThis is a bad book that with some polish could have been merely awful. Ed to defend the soldier In a trial rife with racial tension and raw conflict where the lines between ally and enemy blur there are those with their own secret motives and a burning passion for a rush to udgment no matter what the cost From the Paperback editio.
SUMMARY · CHEAPUGG.US ✓ John KatzenbachI loved it butHow many times do you need to specify that the watch is the one Lydia gave him or that Fenelli is the medic from Cleveland or that Tommy and Lincoln s last names are Hart and ScottThe numerous instances of the black flier annoyed me too but I assume are Hart and ScottThe numerous instances of the black flier annoyed me too but I assume was perhaps a choice made to keep the point that Lincoln was black in mindExceptokay We get itAnyway I did enjoy the read but then when don t I enjoy most WWII books I picked up Hart s War expecting the standard WW2 Narrative and I wasn t insanely disappointed in this regard I wasn t able to finish the book and was never truly felt drawn into the story portrayed The first 70 pages are only a build up without much context as to whats going to happen in any of them besides the final few when everything starts getting explained Where I left off a court case was about to begin avoiding spoilers so i m going to leave it at that I don t know if that s what carried the Novel throughout the rest of the story and frankly I don
T WANT TO FIND OUT FROMwant to find out From the first 70 pages I can understand that the author is very skilled in weaving a story and setting however this story ust didn t captivate me That s why I gave this book four stars Because while I didn t like the story I was able to understand that it wasn t bad and can easily be seen as a high uality story in the eyes of another I loved the movie and the book is even better I m happier with the ending of the book than I am with the movie ending Depressing book And I mean depressing because the book is so bad it will put a sad face in every reader it gains The story is kinda good but it gets annoying VERY often I do not recommend it to anyone specially if you like to read about WWII view spoilerPlus the ending is the biggest peace of SHIT you could ever imagine Fucking terrible hide spoiler Well Hart s War is another of those books which I ve let languish on my book shelf for over ten years I initially purchased it to read before watching the movie of the same name and when I watched the movie prior to reading I lost interest in the book This was an unfortunate decision as I was to discover John Katzenbach s writing is exceptional and his ability to create the atmosphere of the WWII POW camp develop characters create a first class mystery and leave the reader with moral dilemmas to solve shows me that he is a writer who I should continue to read and should not have passed by until this pointThe setting is Stalag Luft Thirteen which like the camp from Hogan s Heroes has allowed no escapees It is an oppressive place and Tommy Hart Much like the other prisoners feels the lack of freedom acutely Before the war and being shot down Hart was working on getting a degree in law from Harvard When a man is murdered in the camp Hart is given. Second Lieutenant Tommy Hart a navigator whose B 25 was shot out of the sky in 1942 is burdened with guilt as the only surviving member of his crew Now he is ust another POW at the fiercely guarded Stalag Luft 13 in BavariaThen routine comes to a halt with the. The task of defending the African American Tuskegee airman who has been chargedIn developing the setting Katzenbach had the help of his father Nicholas Katzenbach former Attorney General under the Lyndon B Johnson administration and a father Nicholas Katzenbach former Attorney
GENERAL UNDER THE LYNDON B JOHNSONunder the Lyndon B Johnson and a in a German prison camp during World War II This is reassuring to the reader who desire authenticityWhile the book is one which has a cast of characters Katzenbach is able to flesh out a character in a few short sentences as is the case of Vincent Bedford or Trader Vic Bedford had a thick southern drawl with an excitable uality to it He was an excellent poker player a than passable shortstop who d done some time in the minor leagues Before the war he d been a car salesman which seemed appropriate But what he truly excelled at was the commerce of Stalag Luft Thirteen turning cigarettes and chocolates and tins of real coffee that arrived either in Red Cross parcels or packages from the States into clothing and other goods I love a good mystery and Hart s War is certainly that While the reader has many pieces of the puzzle the whole of it does not come together until the end of this suspenseful story I thoroughly appreciated how it came togetherAs with many of my favorite books this one left me much to think over and especially the moral dilemmas which are likely to occur during a time of war I highly recommend this book and look forward to reading from John likely to occur during a time of war I highly recommend this book and look forward to reading from John This was really a terrific read It was chosen for book club by a member who had randomly picked up from the library and thought it would a good book to discussThe characters were extremely complex as perhaps prisoners of war would be The plot developed very slowly it was a very long book that involved a murder and racial strife both among the prisoners and from the Germans It was indeed very suspenseful and hard to put down near the end of the book Excellent book Couldn t put it down once it got going It s basically a crime drama set in a POW camp during WWII Pros1 Good main character He cares about other people He doesn t say he ll do this and that He ust does what needs to be done2 Good supporting cast I didn t like that the author mentioned that this character or that character is complex It is true that the characters were multi dimensional3 There are so many antagonists you have no idea who to trust4 Great build up of tension towards the end5 The plot developed beautifully the ends came together6 I m not a black man so I don t know how authentically his viewpoint was portrayed but it FELT real I thought th A truly outstanding book It will put readers into the same mindset as To Kill a Mockingbird and also A Time To Kill Also if you haven t done so already rent the video about the Tuskeegee Airmen It was a fascinating book of war legal battl. Arrival of a new prisoner First Lieutenant Lincoln Scott an African American Tuskegee airman who instantly becomes the target of contempt from his fellow soldiers When a prisoner is brutally murdered and all the blood soaked evidence points to Scott Hart is tapp. ,
