If your like me you like a good mystery/thriller/suspense novel, but I have to say this wasnt it. In the last book I read by the author, Roses Are Red I thought he did a great job with everything a good book should have. That book started out with an FBI agent/friend showing up at his house to ask for help in a case, one which he was unable to refuse. In Four Blind Mice, theres another knock at the door and you guessed it, they need help and he cant refuse. Every case seems to be his last and the story was a bit boring. In short I'd pass.
This is one of the best books I've ever read. Demille takes you though a descriptive and captivating story of Vietnam during the war and life in the country today. Great read and also pick up on Vietnam facts along the way. Hard to believe this book is fiction, definitely worth reading and I hope the movie plans work out for this book.
I was a little scepticle about getting this book thinking it might be just a boring love story and drag out. Someone told me that it was good, so I decided to give it a shot and as it turns out it was one of the best books I've read (or heard). Great story about the human spirit and how things in life can change you forever. Get this one!!
The story takes awhile to get started and even when it does get going a bit it still isnt really worth listening to. I think the author did a good job with bringing the characters to life, but failed on making it a strong ending.
