A gritty raw story about Molly and Her troubled past. The story begins where Molly meets a raw army recruit. She behind the gates of a reform school, he free and young and on his way to a new adventure.
Four years later the war in Angola has changed him. Haunting him day and night and Molly is harder than ever, vowing never to care for anything or anybody again....
Words in the form of letters exchanged between them while he was in basic training and she still in school however forms a bond. A bond she does not want, a bond he cannot live without.
This is a hard read. Although not overly graphic the reality of life for these two characters is also not glossed over. Molly is a hard character to like and connect with. While pushing away everybody in her life she also pushes at the reader, almost daring the reader to give up on the book, give up on her like everybody else did in her life. Almost.....
This is a tough book to give a star rating for. It is hard to read, hard not to and more than anything it forces the reader to think. I am giving it 5* due to the authors ability to write Molly always marginally unlikeable and even so always totally lovable.
Not my usual fare, but an interesting story. I liked the characters, even though they were tragically flawed. The back and forth between past and present was sometimes confusing, but only because the present was linear and in third person, and the past jumped around a bit more. Overall, I liked the story and the character growth. Molly was a great anti hero.
