The narration of this long overly detailed slowed paced cronology of the war is absolutely dreadful and annoying. Beyond that, it goes on for days of listening. Dont buy this book to read or to listen to. It is awful.
Hard to believe this book is a best seller. Long confusing drawn out story about a stolen painting. Very hard to relate to. Pass on this one. Good literature is worth searching for. This book is not that.
Long drawn out sad story where every chapter says pretty much the same things as the prior chapter.. Narration was good. The book might make an interesting two page magazine article about complex medical surgeries, sadness and addiction issues.
Pass on this classless book. Unbelievable the things she says. Should be banned. She must be desperate.
If you listen to one book all year, make sure it is this one. the narration by billy crystal is funning, interesting and I was sad when the book ended. It is upbeat, funny, sad all of these things.
Story was confusing in terms of all the bad guys. Very narrow plot line. Narrator was awesome however. Pass on this one.
This book is ridiculous. Just plain silly. Take a pass. Read House Rules by same author. It is good.
The first half of the book was amazing, interesting, good character development and you felt what it was like to be in Vietnam at that time. But later in the book unless I think you were a combat veteran it got too detailed and I got lost in exactly what the issue was with Matterhorn. Way too long. Overall an indepth look at the silliness and tradgedy of war no different than the war we are in today in Iraq.
Pass on this audio book. It is very predictable, simple and boring.
I listen to a lot of books. this was a very good book and well narrated. There was superb character development. I give it a 10.
