    " This is a fantastic book. Not done with it though. It talks about the Iraq war or something like that. I recommend it to people who like reading action books or war books. It is not made for adults so it easier to read than those serious war books. "

    " Couldn't finish this one. Nowhere near as gripping as what I had come to expect thanks to the likes of Monster. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trish | 2/1/2014

    " This book is about the invasion of Iraq through the eyes of a young soldier whose parents wanted him to go to college, but he felt he needed to serve his country. It talks about his experiencde first-hand, and the battles he fought. It is a young adult book, and is a good read for those who want to learn about the invasion of Iraq and feel the emotions and feelings of what it was like to be there. definitely more of a boy's book. "

    " Get book to read if your interested in the war in Iraq. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Javiercalzada | 1/23/2014

    " Some of my class mates prefer this book but i dont. This book relly didnt catch my attention. I prefer to read an adventure book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thomas Mcneill | 1/23/2014

    " This book is about a guy named Robin from New York who joins the US Army and is put into the civil affairs sector of his company. The book is set shortly after 9/11 and takes place in Iraq. Robin meets a guy named Jonsey from Georgia who plans to on running his own club when he gets back home. I really liked the book because I want to join the marines after highschool. I would recommend the book to any one who wants to know more about the Iraq and Afghanistan war or to anyone who wants to join the military after highschool. Even though the book is only 14 chapters long it gives a lot of detail about the war and the life of the modern day soldier. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 1/14/2014

    " Didn't match up to Fallen Angels for me, but still quite good. I enjoyed it as much as one can enjoy a realistic portrayal of war... That is, appreciating the story, but praying for the men & women still deployed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meredith | 1/8/2014

    " This book was full of deep characters that were so realistic. The dialogue was so good and the description of the setting of Iraq by the narrator, a young army recruit from Harlem named Robin, made me fell like I was there. This book was really, really good. It kind of blew me away. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda Celaya | 12/23/2013

    " Great book with lots of emotion. Felt like I was living the war with all the characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ian Smith | 6/19/2013

    " This was a really good book. It was a little sad but I would reccomend it to anyone even if they don't like war books. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kelly | 1/31/2013

    " I only got a third of the way into this book and didn't like it at all. I stopped reading it which says a lot. I never put a book down unfinished. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth Molski | 12/1/2012

    " good story. I know the I can get some of the reluctant readers to read this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 LibraryGoddess | 9/25/2012

    " This story of a young soldier in Iraq is a great read for teens. It's a very realistic, but not sensationalized, view of the life of a soldier in a combat zone, including the boredom and tedium as well as the danger and loss. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wyatt.w | 8/21/2012

    " My over all opinon of Sunrise over Fallujah is that it was a very good book! It has inspired me to concider joining the army. I really liked that it described how war actually was. I also liked how it described how the troops lined up in order and how they moved swiftly through the sand. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kyle | 7/5/2012

    " This book was fairly good. I rated it a 3 because some parts in this book are meant for kids of an older age and are very hard to understand it. I would not recommend this to 8th graders unless they have a very good knowledge of the middle east and why we sent our troups to fight. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelsey | 6/25/2012

    " I had a really strong reaction to this book. I think Meyers did a fantastic job with his main characters and the development of the story from no threat to threats everywhere! It reminded me that we still have a war in Iraq and whether we agree with it or not, we should support our troops. "
