Summary

Double Vision is Pat Barker's thought-provoking Booker Prize-winning novel of modern warfare.

Provocative, intense and deeply moving, Double Vision is a powerful story of one man's quest to find redemption amidst the horror of twenty-first-century war. Returning to Afghanistan after his photographer friend is killed by a sniper, war reporter Stephen Sharkey seeks release from his nightmares in an England seemingly at peace with itself.

Questioning man's inhumanity to man both abroad and at home, and whether love really can be the great redeemer, Double Vision is a searing novel of conflict in modern times.

Disappointing

Well that certainly didn’t blow my mind. I usually really enjoy Pat Barker books but I spent most of this one just waiting for something, anything to happen.
None of the characters were likeable really and the dynamic between Steven and Justine seemed highly implausible, what 19 year old speaks like that?!
Underwhelming 😐
