really liked it
Read in March, 2011

Contemplative, lyrical book that reads almost like a long poem. I found the Vietnam section of the book to be a bit sensational (and also a bit of a cliche in terms of using this experience as a justification for character psychology). The book doesn't need it. The meditative writing and mood say it all.
