This is the kind of book that I would have eaten up during a phase in my younger life when I was fascinated by the Vietnam War. As an adult, I found it sweet and poignant, but ultimately it was just reading someone's diary, which isn't really edge-of-your-seat reading (plus you know there will be no climax and resolution!).

I didn't finish it, but if you would like a front-row seat to war through the eyes of a North Vietnamese field doctor, you might like to try this. Apparently it is a surprise bestseller in Vietnam. I think after all these years there are still a lot of wounds that have yet to be healed.
