"Meantime: The Aesthetics of Soldiering" Reviews
MEANTIME is a great quick and easy read. I found the book to be quite thought provoking and it really is a truthful war memoir that takes you inside of the mind of a young soldier learning how to cope with the diverse circumstances. Stephen Paul Register has really seen a lot... Very interesting the way the stories shift from one short story to another. Really grabs the attention of the reader and never gets monotonous. Great debut work. Worth every penny.

Great read! Very interesting!
This is a good book! It is a MUST read if you really want to know about a soldiers life. War is not 24/7, there is life in between. Not only does the author convey the tragedy of modern day warfare from his time in Iraq, but also the good that soldiers do from Mississippi to Arizona...in the meantime! It is NOT ONLY a book about WAR; it is about how a good soldier deals with it...his thoughts, his actions, his friends in country, his overall experience. His short stories show us that Soldiering is more than just the act of war; it's sometimes sad, sometimes questionable, sometimes humorous, and very much thought provoking.
