Johnny Got His Gun

Title: Johnny Got His Gun
Author: Dalton Trumbo
Call Number: PS3539.R928 J5 1988
Rating: Highly Recommended
Review: This book explores what it is like to have both your arms, legs, mouth, tongue, and eyes amputated from a bomb explosion in war, but still have the ability to think. Luckily this book is just fiction, but I am sure it happens to soldiers all the time. This book will make you cry and realize that before we decide to go to war with any nation that we should be prepared to live with these results on our conscience.
