This book changed the way I see the food industry and should be required reading for kids in school. We have to rethink our food economy in a serious way.
in the first five minutes after i finished war for the oaks, i would have said it was an amazing book. that's the effect of bull's style of writing and the story she had to tell. like gaiman, she has portrayed a shadow universe that her characters are drawn into against their own will. this universe is one where a war in going on between the seelie and unseelie courts. the book was an unpredictable story of courage and music and one that kept me thinking about it whenever i was forced to put it down. i loved main character's in the book, eddi and phouka. they were both likeable and real, with the quirks and humor that would make me want to befriend them in real like. i found their romance appealing, for the most part, though it was a bit treacly toward the end. the bigger problem is the uselessness of some of the minor characters. some of them were introduced with great description and detail, but when on to serve little purpose through the rest of the book. the author's notes at the end state that in a screenplay adaptation, at least one of these characters is dropped, which i think would help. overall, a very good book. it had it's flaws, but it took me awhile to remember them, so i can't hold them against it too much.
This was a life-changing book for me. I have given this book as a gift to countless women in my life who are wives and very dear to me. If you want your marriage to last a lifetime, this is a book you should read and apply to your marriage.
