Finished another book yesterday just as my commute was coming to an end- such perfect timing! O'Brien has a unique style of writing and kept everything in the present tense, even though it was obviously in the past. Apparently this is a very journalistic style, but I haven't read anything like it before. Reading about her experiences in foreign countries after natural disasters was heart-wrenching and depressing, but impossible to put down.
Although it had sad parts, it was still a good read!
