The Last Word, Ron Miner

Dan is a journalist interviewing the last living WWII vet. At 112, Owen is a character, he tells engaging stories, and he knows how to laugh. As we follow Owen’s life not just during the war but before and after, we find ourselves drawn into this highly engaging read that carries some moving themes.

Being historical fiction, I knew that I was going to love this. Miner has crafted Owen based on very intensive research, and Owen is a fantastic character. We are led to believe he is frail, isn’t awake often, and probably without the best memory, but he is anything but. From the lessons he’s learned through the years to the way he spends his life, he’s as sharp as a whip, with a near impeccable memory. I adored his friendship with Taiki. I’ve read countless books about or including the Japanese internment camps, and it still guts me every time. A fantastic read, I cannot recommend it enough.

The Last Word is available on Amazon for $3.99, it’s enrolled in KU.
