    1 thought on “Another Bloody Love Letter”

    1. This was a confronting book about an ex-heroin addict foreign correspondent, mainly in wars. This author is not afraid to tell of his life, including the parts that are not pleasant and expose the personal depths he has gone to. However, there is no preaching; I never got the sense that the author was trying to force a message. While this is not a book that everyone will get through, I found it utterly compelling.

    2. the praises will be endless, Anthony's writing is unparalleled. I'm with him every moment of every war, every moment that is raw and honest, every moment that he didn't die and lived to tell, the ghosts that chased him, I almost hope that he ventures out again and makes another conflict hits own as much the conflict making him his slave. that marriage is imperfect but a grand read.

    3. I have read Anthony Loyd's work in the past but it never registered until he was shot in Syria a couple of months ago. His intro began something like: "Two hours before he shot me.". Great way to begin a story although you do have to get shot for it to work. Even if that part was unplanned. When I saw on a friend's Facebook post that he had a couple of books, including this one that also deals with his heroin addiction, I thought this is going to be worth a read. It didn't disappoint. His person [...]

    4. Brilliant. One of those books that you finish and then are tempted to start over again. Even if the book was just war stories, it would be great. From Kosovo to Kabul, Loyd shares the excitement, as well as the boredom, fear, and pain, of his experiences. It helps that Loyd is an excellent writer. I've always understood the attraction of war; Loyd's writing is the first time I understood the attraction of heroin. But there is so much more to the book than just war stories. Loyd can sketch out th [...]

    5. War correspondent Anthony Loyd's second book is set across a much larger territory than his first. He relates experiences in Kosovo, Sierra Leone, Afghanistan and Iraq. In some ways this offers a less tight structure than in his first novel which was chiefly about Bosnia and Chechnya. In others it allows a greater look at his life across similar but different nations. No matter where it's set, however, his writing is just as memorable and as moving as always. Loyd is a man who feels deeply and w [...]

    6. Another engaging, grim book of war reportage from Anthony Loyd. Loyd writes with intimacy about atrocities that occur in war zones throughout the world, wondering both why they occur, and why he is so attracted to such tragedy and destruction. This tension makes for gripping and harrowing reading. War, suggests Loyd, is both an external and an internal reality. For some it is waged with bombs and bullets and for others with drugs and addiction. In both cases, it can tear us apart.

    7. An engaging and highly interesting read, probably only given four instead of give stars because I can't help comparing it to Loyd's amazing previous book. Takes you on a dizzying and personal tour of all the wars western civilization has been involved with during the last thirteen years. Loved it.

    8. Interesting war reporter stories from the hell holes of this planet. The bits about the author´s heroin addiction get boring fast, though they might be good as anti drug propaganda for kids.

    9. I'd have to say that I liked his first book better but this one was still pretty good. I wouldn't say that it really gets going until the second half when the writer goes to Afghanistan.

    10. Despite a few awkwardly placed punctuation marks here and there, this is an utterly fantastic read beautifully, amazingly written one of those books i feel like i want to memorise
