Probably not. I know it was meant to be short, but it was too short. You have no time to develop feelings for any of the characters. I also didn't have time to get too into it before it was over.
Oh yes, but only because this was not the first of his that I have read! I hope that others do not choose to hear this as your first DeMille experience, then they might not go back, which would be a tragedy for them.
Only one scene in the whole book to choose from! Haha
Stick to the full novels, this just isn't worth it unless you specifically only have a couple of hours to hear something.
fast paced, unexpected, compelling
I didn't know what to expect and I wasn't disappointed so to speak. Like "Up Country" and "Word of Honor" it is about deMille's time in Vietnam. American Platoon vs. Vietnamese sniper. But I don't want to give anything away here. The story is short enough to ruin it for everyone reading here if I say too much.
Hard to say really. Same as above. Don't want to call a spoiler alert.
No problem here, since it's only a short story :-)
