The Citadel

The book is moving too fast for me at the moment, even though the Marines are trapped trying to get over the wall of the Citadel. Believe me, this is the last of this type of books I will read. It's not that I don't enjoy it--I enjoy all kinds of readings. It's just that trying to read a book I read in high school (not a classics book) just to see what I will feel about now was not a productive endeavour.

I suspect that even though the book is based on Dale A. Dye's experience, some of it might be fictionalized. There's a scene of ferocious action, but it falls short when the narrator goes overboard in the description of what he did. It's a little too much. There are passages depicting the harsh treatment of enemy bodies. It's not interesting reading and I know that I am not reading it for enjoyment but just to read something I read long ago. I won't do this again.

The new semester started today. I have wonderful students and I already feel this will be an enjoyable 3 months.
