swap and since she has already reviewed my short story I feel sort of obligated So and since she has already reviewed my short story I feel sort of obligated So The Unlikeliest Hero: The Story of Desmond T. Doss goesI had a really tough time reading this In the PDF version it is four hundred and ninety nine pages though that includes the title and copyright page and a couple of pages after the ending tacked on by the free site from which it was downloaded The length is not why I had a tough time reading it I ve read and enjoyed much longer books However this was not an enjoyable or exciting read just confusing and tiringPlease keep in mind that this is just my opinion Someone else may think this is perfectly acceptable as is and find this to be areat book First the characters even the main ones are so undeveloped that as hard as I tried I could dredge up no empathy or connection with any of them and there are just way too many extraneous charactersThe premise A man who is slowly losing his mind is sent from Ireland to the USA for experimental treatments Add to that a young woman from Amsterdam who has brain cancer and is for some reason being sent to the same place in the USA for the same experimental treatment And then there s the theft of a medical secret from a lab in AmericaIn the end I think the story is supposed to be about all of the above but it has such a plethora of confusing and unnecessary sub plots thrown in that I found it very difficult to follow It never uite came together.
