Atonement - Ch. 17

--by Abby (ending pg. 289)

War stories here. Nothing too life altering, but certainly disheartening. It's really a survival story now.

In these types of stories, I'm always a bit surprised at the unwillingness of people to do what is necessary for their own survival. It seems gov'ner Turner is the only man clever enough to watch the sky for bombers.

His companions are beginning to grow on me. After leading them out of the wilderness, I'm predicting that Robbie is injured and they carry him to England. Why not?

The whole 2nd part was my least favorite part of the book. I may have skimmed some chapters all "ok, i get it, war blows."
