Very well written, very factual and straightforward. Doesn't shy away from the horrific acts that these young men had to do to stay alive. I liked the book, but don't feel the need to read it again. I couldn't even imagine having to eat my friend and see them just as meat, but I really like the way that some of them took it: “If it were me, I would want you to use my body to survive.” I would feel that exact same way.
It's interesting how individuals form organization and order from chaos. I wonder if its human nature or if its really really difficult for us, who have been raised that order and therefore jobs and rewards and such are part of our society, to get away from the constructs since we know no other way and it makes us feel safe and that everything is predictable.
