I can't recommend this book. The narration was great but the story was tedious. A condensed version would be; "f--k, f--k, puss, blood, guts, leeches, no water, no food, all my f--king friends die, f--k, f--k, f--k! This goes on for hours and the ending was very unsatisfying.
The only interesting thing was to listen/feel what the soldiers went through. War is hell and so was this book. Wished there was a more interesting ending.
It reaffirmed my strong opposition to unjustified wars!
Save your credits. I'm sure there are better books on the VN war.
The writing and narration were mediocre! If it wasn't for the language, and graphic sex scenes, I would have thought this was a "young reader's" selection. Corny, dumb, and way too long for such a shallow plot.
Save your time and credit for something better.
I have enjoyed audible.com for several years and listened to many amazing stories. This is one of the best I've listened to. The narrators were incredible. The story line pulled me in and wrapped around me like a soft warm blanket. This book was simply delicious, I didn't want it to end!
