A very beautiful and tragic love story
Very apt and succinct anti-war read. Charming and witty
“Lot‘s wife was told not to look back where all those people and their homes had been. But she did look back, and I love her for that, because it was so human. So she was turned to a pillar of salt. So it goes.
People aren‘t supposed to look back. I‘m certainly not going to do it anymore. I‘ve finished my war book now. The next one I write is going to be fun. This one is a failure, and it had to be, since it was written by a pillar of salt.”
The only mythology book I have ever read that made me feel a closeness to the characters and events, which is refreshing considering the genre overall strikes me as an absurd and aloof mess. This book also encapsulates women and empowerment beautifully; soft and nurturing, yet powerful and brutal when necessary
