This book has gotten a lot of attention, and for the most part deserves it. It's well written and offers interesting perspectives on the Vietnam War. The tone is ironic--the satire is subtle at times and bolder in others. It is a bit slow at times in the middle but has some brilliant moments when the narrator is serving as a consultant for a film based around Apocalypse now, and it finishes strong.
