I thought I would be able to better rationalise pain, but it is painfully confusing and messy to do so. A book that fully unravels how difficult it is to translate language to something practical, general and specific. Now I feel totally confused...

Great read, bit hard to frame as it takes on the subject of pain from so many directions.

Un resumen breve y conciso a este periodo histórico del siglo XX, con algunos testimonios de personas que lo padecieron. No es un libro que aporte mucho ni imprescindible.

From the ethics of war, I now turn to violence in war. I read this, hoping for a little supplement to David Grossman's 'On Killing', and came away disappointed.

A blurb on the back claims that this is 'revisionist history', and yet I found nothing particularly revealing or new about this, especially after Grossman's book. War is primarily about killing the enemy, and this is a shock to some people! On several instances, I found that several of the sources are novels, which were interpreted and analyzed as non-fiction. A cursory look at Google shows that some of the real memoirs used were manufactured.

On top of that, the book seems poorly edited, and I found myself bored instead of horrified with war. It takes special effort to be that disengaging.

Read On Killing instead.
