Don't Waste Your Time

 
I held high hopes for this book but alas I was dissapointed. For me the story of how the diary was discovered was more intersting than the diary itself. Yes it does provide a brief snaphot into the life of a French soldier at the opening of the Great War. But it lacked  details and this left me  not feeling connected are caring about the soldier. The artwork that accompanyies the diary  is drab and unisnpiring. I am sorry to say that the book to me felt like it was trying to cash in on the centenary of World War I.
