Joker Lives!

by Patrick T on Nov 2, 2012

Fans of the movie will no doubt recognize some of the dialogue in the first few chapters. It's a quick and exceptionally well-done novel. I wish that the author could have given us a few more like this or perhaps even a Vietnam epic. Alas that's not to be, but I'll put this up against "The Things They Carried" or "A Rumor of War" any day.

Very Pleased

by Donovan S on Jan 27, 2011

Very happy with this book and I loved reading it-much better than the movie that was based on it. The dialog rings so true for the 60's (yes, I'm that old) and is so typical of the Marine Corps. A fast read and strikes home.

For anyone who enjoys reading about life during wartime, should enjoy reading this book. It is very realistic.
