“Wow just wow!” Another 5 Star Goodreads Review of “Nor the Years Condemn” by Justin Sheedy
“WOW JUST WOW!” FIVE STARS AT GOODREADS
Nor the Years Condemn by Justin Sheedy – Review by Sarah Clifton
You’re a very talented author, Justin Sheedy… Wow just wow! Spitfires, Typhoons & Focke-Wulfs… Before reading this novel I didn’t even know about the different types of aircraft used in war. At first I found it a bit confusing keeping up with the air force lingo but the more I kept reading the more I understood and learnt from it.
It was very interesting to read of the different stages of one’s journey from Pilot Officer to Squadron Leader. You depicted the characters in a way that allowed the audience to connect with them, especially the main character, Quinn. I liked how this novel showed us from various angles how war affects people in different ways and their personal views. Various emotions from the characters (and yes us readers) were experienced such as courage, fear, admiration, pride, loss/grief, love and more.
I loved how the Australian culture and language was used and the mateship shown but most importantly I loved how realistically this novel was written… There wasn’t one character who was perfect or immune to life’s hardships e.g. Stephen Maddox’s stutter, suicide, loss of a mate etc.
If I had wanted to, I wouldn’t be able to find one fault of this book which is why I gave it a 5 star rating. I recommend this book to everyone especially young readers – Well done Justin!
