This review is from: The Narrow Road to the Deep North (Kindle Edition)
An absolute masterpiece about the atrocities and mateship of the POWs working on the Burma Railway. Flanagan is insightful about love, death, family, failure, facade and numerous other meaningful elements of life. The brutality and the compassion in this book brought me to tears. An Australian literary genius and I would highly recommend this book. Not for the faint hearted.
