Do you read war stories? Fictional ones? Histories?
My Answer: Not really; I usually won't pick up a book that's all about war, fictional or otherwise. If I am reading a book and there are war/battle scenes, I tend to skim over those parts. Even books that I have loved forever (Tamora Pierce's books, for example) have certain battle and war scenes that jut don't hold my interest. There are exceptions of course, for example, I loved the Hunger Games - but then, Catching Fire and Mockingbird didn't impress me at all. I suppose it just depends:)
