Customer Review - Private Peaceful

Private Peaceful
by Michael Morpurgo [j Morpurgo or jPB Morpurgo]

I first picked up this book because of the "warish" title hoping to find a book filled with the brutality and intensity of the act of war. Instead I found another side of the war scene in Private Peaceful, an interpretation that showed the interpersonal effects that war have on a young mind. Yes there is still the brutality that come with the territory but it is not the focus of this book and makes for a very interesting point-of-view for the usually war book reader. I highly recommend this novel if you regularly find yourself drawn to these style of books, I am sure you will find yourself deep into the reading as I was. -- review submitted by Kellen R. - a customer of the Gere Branch Library
