My "To Be Read List" is so unwieldy that I probably won't get to this book until 2013. Besides, it doesn't really appeal to me so I'm in no rush. It's on every Best Book List of 2012. What's up with that?
Let me know what you think....
Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk by Ben Fountain
A finalist for the National Book Award, this novel tells the story of an intense firefight between Iraqi insurgents caught on tape by an embedded Fox News crew.
The San Francisco Chronicle called it "a bracing, fearless and uproarious satire of how contemporary war is waged and sold to the American public."
Eight surviving men become sought after heroes..slated to be part of the Dallas Cowboys halftime show. Truths emerge and life and death moments collide with real life....labeled "brilliantly conceived.."
(Recommended as a great holiday gift for a lot of people out there... uh, just not me)
