In the local section of the Wilmington Star-News, we?ve all seen the stories. Most of the time, we pass them over; they have gotten to be so sadly routine. The death of another Camp Lejeune Marine. Small stories, usually, with little more than a hometown, Marine unit, what part of Iraq or Afghanistan and the circumstances.
Can you enjoy a book, if you don't like the characters.
