Coal Black Horses....War Through the Generations

Back in May I read a review about Coal Black Horses, on War Through the Generations blog.  I was impressed with the review so I requested the book from our local library.  And although my teaser of yesterday was GROSs, it was a remarkable book, I started the book on Sunday night and stayed up on Tuesday to finish it.  I do admit on Tuesday afternoon, I had to puke whilst reading it.  Nonetheless it was a compelling read a real "GRAPHIC NOVEL" not the normal graphic novel.  Imagine that we are only reading about it, imagine living it.  At any rate this novel is not for the faint at heart, but it is VERY GOOD, even if the subject matter is horrific.

If you're brave you'll immediately request a copy at your local library and read this one...

Wow. It actually made you puke? I can honestly say that I've never had to puke because of a book. Not sure I want to read it actually.

Your review will be featured on War Through the Generations on Oct. 26. Thanks for participating!

I've been in a reading slump.  I swore in this 150th celebration of Canadian confederacy I would only read Canadian authors.  And I h...
