The World Without You - Joshua Henkin

The World Without You was not a very memorable read for me. As I sit here, trying to gather my thoughts on this book I realize that while I still remember quite distinctly the events of the novel, I just can’t seem to form an opinion on how much I enjoyed the novel. There was nothing about it that struck me as particularly bad…but at the same time, there was nothing that made it stand out as being a particularly great book either. The subject matter was somewhat unique, but it’s almost as if the book came out just a bit too late to really stand out and make an impact on the reader, if it was written and published at the time that the the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were at their peak then maybe the story would have felt more dramatic instead of feeling dated and tired.
