Loon: A Marine Story
Elizabeth Kilbride's review
Mar 20, 2012
"Loon" is a Marine's story about his life and military career in a place called Vietnam. From his humble beginnings to the jungle of Nam, Jack McLean's riveting memoir will open your eyes. Many of his Andover classmates took a different path in life as they avoided going to war but McLean came from stronger stock and enlisted in the Marine Corps. After thirty years of suppressing his emotions, McLean looks back at the invisible wounds he suffered and the end result is worth reading about in this Marine's story. It's understandable why this book was on the New York Times Best Selling list - it's the raw real deal type of novel.
