Winner of the Man Booker Prize 2014

Forever after, there were for them only two sorts of men: the men who were on the Line, and the rest of humanity, who were not. In the despair of a Japanese POW camp on the Burma Death Railway, surgeon Dorrigo Evans is haunted by his love affair with his uncle's young wife two years earlier

Struggling to save the men under his command from starvation, from cholera, from beatings, he receives a letter that will change his life forever. This is a story about the many forms of love and death, of war and truth, as one man comes of age, prospers, only to discover all that he has lost.

“Staggering ”

Oh. My. Goodness. One of the best things I've ever read. Beautiful, lyrical, poetic, easy to read, and appalling and moving at the same time. Knocked the stuffing out of me like a crowbar to the head.
