5.0 su 5 stelle Beautiful Story of Recovery and Hope 27 aprile 2016
Di C. Townsend - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
If you have been to war or love someone who has been to war you owe it to yourself to read this book. In my lifetime I’ve read beautiful books and I’ve read important books. The Road Back from Broken is a rare combination of the two. The author even manages to pull off an equally poignant story within a story within the pages, a remarkable feat in and of itself. I loved the book and found myself reflecting on my own trips to faraway deserts. The story is a beautiful reminder that even though many of us came back broken, visibly or invisibly, we can heal. Like the Japanese art of kintsugi, the pieces can be put back together with a lot of work, and although the resulting work of art has scars from its tribulations it is more beautiful for those scars. This book reminds us that broken does not have to be an endstate, but rather the road back from broken is paved with the love of those around us. That love transcends all the hurt and all the scars and can bring us back to whole.

4.0 su 5 stelle Engaging Read 29 ottobre 2015
Di LAndrews - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
If you own a heart, it's impossible not to connect with the main character of Fitz and the pain he is feeling over the choices he's made. This is an engaging, fast read from a debut novelist.

I liked the slow reveal of the promise made and broken at the heart of Fitz's issue with the loss of his friend. While the depth of the friendship becomes more obvious towards the end, I wish that we had a better sense of that depth and longevity earlier on- I never really connected with Peterson, so couldn't mourn with Fitz, only empathize with him.

I liked the layering of the story of soldiers who are fathers and sons and the legacy of silence that Fitz is determined to break. I'm a military brat and understand that I know little about my Dad's service despite being raised on/near base until about Ryan's age.

Carter's thread gets dropped early on and I'm glad Morgan brings him back at the end to acknowledge his part in the final resolution of Fitz's consequences for bad behavior and failure to seek help on his own.

Interesting read- nice emotional throughline, with prose that doesn't get in the reader's way of feeling along with the POV characters- description and pacing a bit uneven, a little too much story crammed into one story, but engaging, and I can't wait to see how Morgan's story-telling develops over time :-)

5.0 su 5 stelle the perfect combination of I know what good writing looks like ... 15 febbraio 2016
Di Michele L. - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I read a lot. One of my degrees is in literature and I'm a high school teacher...the perfect combination of I know what good writing looks like and I care MOST about a good story! Also, I write notes when I read, and I am sharing them here because I think they stand alone.

I loved The Road Back From Broken. I think the portrayal of men, of soldiers, is deftly done, without sentimentality or hero-worship. The women stand on their own, not just behind their men. And Fitz' son, young teen Ryan, is carefully and realistically drawn. All that said, I go back to my notes for something that makes me realize my review so far seems to say that I gave this book a lot of critical thought while I read.

I didn't.

"I keep forgetting I'm reading."

"The author keeps finding something mundane, a detail, an experience, that has been changed by events, that can represent the cost of things. So exactly right."

"I think that people with imaginations are both much more susceptible to pain, fear, and the anxiety that comes with them, but are also so much more resilient. No imagination makes for a kind of rigidity that will break you. Fitz, chatting with his grandfather, making the quick connection between his words and his own sleepless state is such a great way to show this."

"The silence of men."

"I love the way that Remy has imagination. When people write about two men together, especially two masculine men, it can be hard to differentiate them. You do this so well. To understand that to listen is the best thing, to be whimsical like Remy is here points to a flexibility of spirit and style that Fitz just doesn't have or need. It makes him the best friend for him right now too and throws his (Fitz') rigidity (and I mean that in both good and bad ways but mostly good...honest, staunch, determined, devoted) in high relief."

"I think this is important, the nuances and variations the author provides in this story around the military, about the cost the ones left behind pay, about the cost of war, even about the reasons--human, selfish, and small sometimes--that soldiers choose what they do."

I recommend this book to anyone who loves a good story. A story that happens to contain a little bit of love (father and son, wife and husband, mother and son, mother-in-law and daughter) and a little bit of tragedy and a little bit of history (and letters!!!) but really is just a story of a man trying to move on, to let go what needs to be let go, to make amends, and to press onwards.

5.0 su 5 stelle A well-told story of coming home from war 13 febbraio 2016
Di Jeremiah Cushman - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
The Road Back from Broken is a heartbreaking tale of one soldier's return from combat and his struggle with the loss of a friend in an IED blast. It is also the story of his family as they try to come to terms with the new man who returned to them from war. While there is much sadness (as others have said, it will draw tears at times), it is at heart a hopeful story.

The characters, starting with Fitz, his wife Jenn and son Ryan, are lovingly drawn. Fitz begins the story at rock bottom, but the reader never feels anything but empathy for him and his obvious struggles. The roots of his problems are slowly unraveled through the course of the books, the reader learning as Fitz begins the healing process with the help of his family and an Army chaplain.

The journey of his wife, Jenn, is also carefully portrayed. She has her own journey she must take as she deals with the challenge of Fitz's self-destructive behavior, her own pursuits and looking out for their son. Her strength often appears as a contrast to Fitz's weakness as they fight their respective battles. Their relationship is the heart of the book in some respects and the reader can't help but root for them.

Road is a different kind of war story, one dealing with the aftermath of combat and the loss of a comrade. Similar to the best war stories, survival is a team effort. Fitz is fighting a new war on his return from the battlefield and he needs all of the help he can get. From his wife, his new chaplain friend, his mother and his son, each plays an important role as Fitz takes the first steps toward recovery. When in Afghanistan, Fitz had to rely on his team there. Once at home, he needs a new team to make it through.

Perhaps most importantly, the story acknowledges that the relationships that previously existed are gone; the people are all different than they were when Fitz went off to war. Sometimes rebuilding isn't possible and building anew is the only option.

Fitz is an experienced soldier. And, as Road ably demonstrates, even the strongest among us need help sometimes. This may be the most important lesson of the tale. It is one well worth remembering as America continues to send her soldiers into harm's way.

5.0 su 5 stelle The Road Back is a tough journey filled with strong characters, guided by solid storytelling. 27 novembre 2015
Di Tyrell Mayfield - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Carrie Morgan accomplished something important in the writing of this book and more importantly, she did it well. Carrie crafts a personal story off loss which is laced with characters of determined will who are well developed and vested in the outcome of the story. Mechanically, the book is sound, moving Fitz through his cycle of loss, coming home and the struggles that he faces in finding his new self and saving his own family. The storytelling is strong and the narrative reads well, allowing some of the larger issues facing both the military and our citizens at home to be presented at an individual level while pointing to higher truths.

Too often the unhelpful trope of damaged veterans which dominates media and political discussions, is also reflected in the arc of post-war literature. As Carrie deftly points out not all things broken are lost and not all veterans who are injured either physically, emotionally, or both are rendered dependent and lost. This book comes closer than other contemporary post-war scripts I have read at actually hitting the right tone in several ways. I could not help but see the lives of some of my very own friends and parts of myself in this story. The connections between the reader and the characters were strong and in that way, Carrie has rendered a story in which military members and their families as well as the citizens who they serve all have buy-in.

The Road Back From Broken is an impressive first effort by Carrie Morgan. Pushing back against popular narratives about conflict and the damage done, Carrie has crafted a story which can be truly helpful in narrowing the divide in understanding between civilian and military communities, but only if you read it.
