Reviews:
This book is okay. It does not have such an interesting plot as it could have. I have not read a really good book that has something to do with the Vietnam War. This book gets surprisingly boring at times. This is not an OPLbery winner.-Eric

I really didn’t like this book. It was hard to tell what the point of the story was. The transitions from one point to another were bad. Also, I felt that the author didn’t explain things thoroughly. I couldn’t relax with the book and enjoy it because the characters seemed unreal. This is not an OPLbery winner. – Maggie
