The Red Badge of Courage

Rating: It was alright...

This was a book I had to read for my English class. It's about a teenager named Henry who goes to war because he wants to feel the glory of fighting. He has an image that soldiers are brave and always being honored for fighting. When he gets into battle and combat, however he feels scared and realizes that fighting in the war is terrifying. The story is mostly and coming of age story and facing reality. I like the concept and the main idea of this story. However, it's very hard to read as it's written in older English and not something I'm used to reading.

I would recommend this to: Anyone who likes war stories
