This was another one i...

This was another one it took me a much longer time to get through then I thought it would. Initially I didn't want to read this title at all b/c I thought it was strictly a war title and wasn't up for the blood and gore. Then I realized it was more of an after the war title and it seemed like the focus would be the whole town. After reading it I feel like the book was about the whole town (and beyond) in relation to Cam, but that was okay b/c I found Cam pretty interesting. This was a book all about people and I like seeing how people tick so it worked for me. I wish I had been able to read it more together b/c then I would have enjoyed it more.

I wanted to like this ...

I wanted to like this more than I did, what with its lovely cover, Printz Honor, and blurbs from some of my favorite authors. However, while the writing is unarguably gorgeous, I found it difficult for me to connect emotionally with the characters, regardless of all the hardships they went through. This was partially because of the multiple POVs, which shifted to another character's POV before I had a chance to fully invest in the previous character, and partially because the characters themselves do not "invite" readers into their confidences the way characters in a more traditionally written story often do. THE RETURNING is truly a "slice of life" look into the aftermath of war on a varied community, with the result that the readerly reactions reflect the writing style and characters' lives: scattered, just living their own lives, and it doesn't matter to them whether you love them or not, they'll exist just as they will.
