While I have watched many cinematographs about Vietnam, this is the first singular I have read about it. The cliffhanger is captivating to say the least covering a latitude of sadnesses. Told from the perspective of an American ms /miss/mrs photojournalist,Helen, it catches all the fundamentals of war but at the same time catches the good thing of the public, its folks and their culture, and the temperament of continuation on both sides. Even in shifts of great misery, there are iotas of goodness present and the author writes about them with spirit! Helen enters the war looking for answers regarding her relation's repose and once she finds them, she continues to linger although she can't pinpoint why. The reader follows along as Helen is pulled further and further into the war, occasionally losing herself but also discovering the depth of her true passion.
Gotta love the classics!
Always hold the Southern wizardry in Sarah Addison Allen's booklets.
Far, I stayed up all night to read this so it must have been pretty captivating. In a lode with other tale of this type, but without too many of the inordinancies (gratuitous this or that) that sometimes turn me off from this propitious of book. One thing that it did have a abundance of (which did not bother me, since I'm a nerd over this sift of thing) was a abundance of actual on relation, alchemy, and progression, all of which I enjoyed and in my quick read did not find any one thing objectionable or glaringly ridiculous. All in all, a very enjoyable & compelling read, with a little more psychological stimulant to footwear.
Well, Laurie King has lived up to all my expectations and more. Another great Russel and Holms mystery. Seriously, if you haven't read this series, you really need to. However, I was disappointed when I read the last leaf that.....IT IS CONTINUED! Laurie! How could you do this to me? You have never left me hanging before. I hope this doesn't begin a course. Scandal on you!
