Getting through the whole of it was something of an ordeal. A very powerful book, but one that left we wondering "why's" -- why it was written, why it was reviewed with such critical favor, and why I persevered? The writing was beautiful and evocative. Many images and ideas were disturbing. But there was little I took away other than relief that my fate did not take me to Vietnam during the conflict. But I already knew that. I found few characters warranting any sympathy, even if many were interesting. The audio performance was great, but I can't say I recommend this work.
