The best writing about Vietnam I know

by nevermind on Aug 30, 2014

I've known O'Brien's work for years, and used it in English courses. I ordered this copy for a friend who served with the Maine Corps at Khe Sanh.

Excellent war tale

by Karen H on Apr 4, 2014

Many times while reading this book, I had to check to make sure this was not non-fiction. It was written so well and so believably. Having grown up during this period it made me understand the other side of the war and the veterans that came back. I didn't think I would like a book of this genre but it was quite fascinating.

Amazing

by Jerry H on Jun 20, 2013

Very well written book that many should read to better understand the Vietnam war, because we sure didn't get the support then that all vets seem to get these days.

War seen from a different viewpoint

by Robert on Jan 17, 2013

The book is an interesting perspective on the emotions at play in soldiering.The writer leads us to understand people through their possessions rather than their actions. This device more than compensates for a somewhat thin story line.

A good book

by Sandy H on Jul 21, 2011

It came in good time and condition. I am not reading this book, it is for my grandson for a school assignment.
