Don't let it end!

A book reader knows he's received a gift when he gets to the final page and wants more - when the reader stubbornly wishes to linger in the story, to remain in the company of the characters, just a bit longer.

I can think of no better compliment for an author and his book, and I can think of no better gift for a fortunate reader.

Author John Huffman has that touch, and 'Above All' is that type of gift. In each of his previous books, Huffman consistently ferries his readers throu...more
This Huffman novel unfolded to me like a slow sipping whiskey. I had a shot before bed each night, savoring the taste, the feel and the warmth of each scene. John W. Huffman brings to life the vivid and very human side of war through a wildly colorful cast of characters that you will love and laugh with, cry and honor...and never forget. When Above All came to a close, as does every good bottle of slow sipping whiskey, I found that I was tempted to tip it to my mouth, and search for one last dro...more

Above All gave touched every emotion from beginning to end. The characters are so memorable. The story shows quite a different side from everything I've come to know about the Vietnam conflict. An entertaining tale, irresistible, I couldn't put it down. I've read it several times and it is still a joy to read. Wonderful, wonderful story

I thought this was an extraordinary novel by an extraordinary man. He writes from the heart and tells it like it was. I would highly recommend this novel and his others to everyone.
This was so well written and exciting read. Mr. Huffman is definitely a good author. No wonder he has won so many awards.
a war tale with a lot of humor, able to captivate me, as a reader, until the end.
A fun read. Good writing and great characters. It takes places in the later days of the Vietnam War as a warrior deals with the REMF's while killing 'gooks'...
