As I Canadian I think my view on this book may be different. I was in elementary school during the war in Viet Nam. I didn’t know much about the war. I found the book to be fascinating. The story of a spoiled college football player and frat boy becoming a man with a conscience was well told. Some of the language used was ugly and unpleasant to read today, but it accurately portrayed language that was a part of everyday speech in that era. I don’t believe the words were used for shock value but were necessary to keep the story real. As was the violence, it happened and was integral to the story line. It’s not a “rainy day at the cottage” book. But it is a book well worth reading. I received a copy of this book for free in exchange for providing this honest review.
