    "This book is somewhat scary, the scope and depth of the story is unbelievable. It's probably one of the longest and hardest to read books you've ever picked up. The novel’s overall message of the goodness and beauty of human nature is an appealing one."

    "In the synopsis it doesn't say anything about this being a romance novel. So, I have to disagree and say the solution is Love and War."

    "This solution does not give enough details on why this was considered a classic romance book. It basically just States facts about the author and what he won as awards. They should have included several more examples of why this was a good romance book but also what war aspect was included."

    "Considered to be one of the great novels on American literary history and for good reason. Mitchell is a storytelling savant and her words flow effortlessly onto the pages. I re-read it after 5 or so years because I enjoy it so much."

    "Great writing and good story. I like this author and the stories she tells. The characters are real and 3 dimensional. The book is very engaging and hard to put down. It makes you feel like you are really there with the characters. Read this on the plane and finished it in my hotel during a conference. A good way to relax with a romance novel."

    "There are many book written about romance during war times and A soldier's duty is a little bit different. It is not historical but science fiction; the story will take place with a Galactic Empire. Great book for the fan of science fiction war books but the romance is a little bit too much in the book."
