5.0 out of 5 stars Yellow Birds, October 18, 2012
This review is from: The Yellow Birds: A Novel (Hardcover)
Kevin Powers did a remarkable job writing The Yellow Birds. The book will touch you emotionally and mentally. Hopefully in the future this book can be made into a movie. I would love to see what actors would play what characters. The author placed the events of the story remarkably. I enjoyed the fact he would write one chapter when they were fighting in combat. The next chapter they would go back in time or in the future. I feel this story hinted to you what was about to happen however it left you guessing at times.

Private Bartle told the story. You feel the hardship and pain he endured. Private Bartle went from being a boy to life changing events that made him a man. My favorite thing about this book is it tells you what the Army is like. The book describes what it is like to be deployed. It describes how soldiers feel to see people dying to the right and left of them. Parts of the story are very horrific. The thing you need to remember is Kevin Powers is a Veteran. He wrote this story as if you were there next to Private Bartle in combat.

I recommend this book to everyone. Our country has been in war for over ten years. Half of America has no clue what service members sacrifice for our country. Maybe if they did know they would keep their comments and actions to themselves.
