The First Stone by Carsten Jensen

The First Stone by Carsten Jensen

From the award-winning author of We, the Drowned comes a brutal, unflinching, and bestselling epic novel of a platoon of soldiers descending into the insanity of the war in Afghanistan.

Dispatched to fight the Taliban as part of the NATO forces, the soldiers of the Third Platoon arrive in a desert hell intent on testing their courage and endurance.

Among them are the charismatic platoon leader Schrøder, a former games designer fascinated by the imaginative potential of war; Colonel Steffensen, whose negotiating tactics will have deadly consequences; Sidekick, the LifeLogger whose online “war memorial” will blur into horror; and the hardened but vulnerable Hannah, who must bury her womanhood—or sacrifice her soul.

Confronted by a betrayal that no military training could prepare them for, the soldiers must embark on a desperate mission to track down an enemy whose methods are as murderous as they are unfathomable.

As the hunters become the hunted, the mission turns into a depraved, hallucinatory voyage into an Afghanistan they never knew existed. With the Third Platoon’s most fundamental notions of good and evil called into question, survival becomes their only mission.

An explicitly brutal portrait of battle told with the propulsion of a harrowing psychological thriller, The First Stone is a stunning and epic depiction of comradeship, humanity, and the bestial realities of a conflict without end.

“Reading this book from Amanda’s perspective after being on a season together is heartwarming, memorable, and genuinely honest . . . This book gave me a fresh perspective on what women go through when dating and is nothing but encouraging, empowering, and uplifting.”
—Ben Higgins, former star of The Bachelor and founder of Generous Coffee

***

When Amanda found out her mother had sent in an application to ABC’s The Bachelor on her behalf, she wasn’t upset . . . but she was hesitant.

As a divorced single mom on a long dating hiatus, she didn’t think there was any way she could measure up against the competitors. In the back of her mind, her ex’s hurtful message reared its ugly head: “You can’t divorce me. You’ll be 25 and divorced with two kids. No one will want you.” The thought of starting over and putting herself out there was frightening. But despite the self-doubt, Amanda made it onto Season 20.

Part-memoir, part girl’s guide, Now Accepting Roses is full of never-before-told stories from behind the scenes of one of America’s most popular television shows—but this book isn’t just for fans of The Bachelor. This book is for anyone navigating the crazy and exciting world of finding real love.
