Writing: 4.5; Theme: 4.5; Content: 4.5; Language: 2.0; Overall: 4.5; This Civil War novel is classic for a reason. It shares the war-life of the young Henry Fleming as he battles between fear and courage. There is a wide-range of characters within this classic novel (loud soldier, tall soldier, and tattered soldier). The great, and most surprising problem, with this tome was the many uses of vulgarity within; there were at least 25-30 uses (mostly in the d--- and h--- variety). There was possibly one use of God's name being used in a vain manner. Highly recommend with the caution of the great volume of vulgarity. ***November 8, 2018*** (Read with Jonathan) ( )
