I could not put it down! Nov 10, 2008
I've never had such a hard time putting a book down. I have never read a book where the characters are so real. I so much want to meet the characters even though I know they don't exist. This book shares the war from so many different perspectives that you truly get a feeling of how war effects so many different lives. I experienced every emotion imagineable while reading this book. If you love war books, you will love this book. If you don't like war books, you will love this book. Take the time to read this book. You will not be disappointed.
In love and war... Mar 5, 2004
Officer Material follows the travels of Eric Monroe-DuSharme, a young Army private, during the second World War. As a reader, you will experience the struggles of boot camp, the bitterness of betrayal, the pain of heartache, the terror of war. But amid such horrific circumstances, humor is found in the strangest of areas. You will see how Eric and his fellow soldiers are affected by the war, as well as each other. The story also follows the adventures, thoughts, and feelings of the women who are left behind. Miss Demaray has not created a novel about a war, she has found the truth of war and managed to gather all the real facts and feelings from people with first hand experience and placed them into this book. This is more than just a wonderful novel, it is a stunning recreation of a true part of history. War historians will appreciate the historical accuracy of this book, and those who lived through this experience will see the true emotions that so many people went through during that time. And if war stories aren't your normal reading choice, the love story that is entwined within the story will captivate your hearts. You will feel the joy as well as the anguish that so many women experienced in that time. Officer Material is not a book that you read. Once you open the cover, you are a part of the story. It is real. It is an experience you will never forget.
A must read. Mar 5, 2004
This book is absolutely phenominal. I would recommend this book to anyone, especially anyone interested in World War II. This book made me feel like I was really there, and the characters felt like real people. For non-war buffs, this book also contains a wonderful love story entwined with the story that makes it that much more believable and personally touching. I can't wait to see the other books in this series released! READ THIS BOOK!!! YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!!! what else can I say? P.S. there should be a movie or mini-series based on this book!
