Billy Lynn's Long halftime Walk: A Novel is a book that creates a symphonic outburst of emotions through your interface.

Review:
As a man of 21st century I suppose that war is a primitive idea and is very Neanderthal but, still I find myself in an age where insecurities have seem to be increased and a nation's primary concern has become its safety, I really believe all this will change. And to the book, I feel it's a blatant exposition of the various fallacies of our civilization of how we sincerely stray from the common line of understanding, that has paranoia have a higher order than compassion. And when the soldier faces the question of his life he is petrified with the world that he is hanging onto slowly melting in his very own hands. And this teaches him the truth of having a clear mind, and the lies that emanate from the radiation of our contact with illusions. And Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk: A Novel is a book that will let you in on the topography of peculiar human emotions that are best termed weird and incapacitating.
