    Army Wives (the book)

    Advertisements
    Anyone ever read Army Wives? It's what the tv show is based off of.

    I started it because I'm trying to keep up with the 52 books thing for 2012 I know once T gets here it'll be harder to read. Anywho my Sookie book hasn't arrived in the mail yet so I grabbed this off my shelf... I'm having a hard time getting into it and I'm curious if others did too?

    I've read it twice, it's a great read! I cried several times, very beautifully written.

    Okay. Maybe I just have to many distractions! I was hoping the characters names would be the same

    Good book but it's so different than the show. You can kinda pick up on who's who.

    Yeah i'm kind of figuring that out right now but it's kind of throwing me for a loop. I think if I would've read the book then seen the show it would've been easier.

    Are you talking about the Under the Sabers book? The show is nothing like the show. The book was giving background info on some of the families with murder/suicides at Ft. Bragg (I believe that was the base.)

    No I don't think so this one is called Army Wives and it's by Tanya something. Unless they renamed the book I think we are talking about different ones

    That's the same book.

    Tanya Biank - Under the Sabers: The Unwritten code of Army Wives



    It's the book that the series is based off of.
