A gripping literary novel about jihadism and US the invasion of Ira Don t expect an action packed war novel this is not that kind of book Rather it tells the tale of a female US gunner who is captured along with two of her colleagues a male US tank crewman who is part of the effort to find and rescue them and a veteran mujahid from the Afghan Soviet war who is battling personal doubts about the direction and methods of the jihadi movement Gritty and realistic the story is told from three separate viewpoints until eventually their fates and actions intertwine

More book reviews on wwwsnazzybookscom For me Spoils is a tricky book to write about There were parts of it I found deeply fascinating and which really hooked me in mainly the parts where Cassandra is in captivity which were so disturbing but at the same time incredibly interesting to read about The general theme of army life and conditions in Afghanistan is also one I found I became absorbed inI wasn t overly keen on the way the novel was structured I found the switches in narrator a little confusing I usually really enjoy books that swap around a lot but in Spoils I found it a bit off putting at times I think I really just wanted to read about Cassandra s capture as that s what really hooked me in from the synopsis Unfortunately it takes a long time in the storyline before that actually happens and I found myself feeling a bit impatient as I wanted the narrative to get to that point despite knowing it would be disturbing tricky at times to read I understand that the section before that point is laying out the run up to these events and really setting the scene but I found that I much preferred reading the scenes about Cassandra s captivity and how Abu al Hool s brotherhood treated her as it was just so intriguing and different to read about I felt Cassandra s captivity as if I was experiencing it myself and this is a testament to Brian Van Reet s writing and knowledge on the subject very impressiveI would recommend this novel and feel it is an important novel to read especially with everything going on in the world today and it s certainly something different as well as being a powerful readRating 35 bumped to 4Many thanks to the publisher Vintage Random House UK for providing a copy of this novel on which I chose to write an honest and unbiased review
