You Know When the Men Are GoneYou Know When the Men Are Gone by Siobhan Fallon
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

For a work of fiction, the characters were not well-developed. However, this may also own to the fact that the book is not a single story, but rather a collection of eight vignettes portraying inter-related soldiers and their families. The stories were filled with drama — a Serbian second wife, a woman who leaves her husband after his leg is crippled, a woman who has an affair while her husband is deployed … the typical drama one would expect of a soap opera or Lifetime’s “Army Wives.” However, if you’re looking for an entertaining way to pass a few hours of a lazy day, You Know When the Men Are Gone is perfect.
