    ePub ô A River In Mayñ Paperback A River In May A novel of the VIETNAM war“when you get to Vietnam you step through the looking glass”This is a novel written almost as a memoir the events and places are conjured up with a veracity and realism that indicate the author knows his subjectIn style and feel this novel is very much like Matterhorn by Karl Marlantes which gets down deep and dirty as the Americans push deeper into the country and into hostile territory Lieutenant Lopez is escaping his molly coddling family and a tragedy that has left its mark Fighting in Vietnam seems a credible choice as “ the US army of the sixties still provided routes to those dark places where

    ePub ô A River In Mayñ Paperback A River In May I think this is a really good book but a tough read Although it is only relatively short it took me some days to read because at times I found I could only cope with reading 10 or 15 pages before the relentless soul destroying violence of war demanded I take a break and seek some inner peace

    ePub ô A River In Mayñ Paperback A River In May Interesting Insightful informative and intriguing Deep but so depressing As an anti war book it does well but hope suffers collateral damage along the way This book is so real it feels like a harrowing confessional expiating guilt and flushing through hate of war and thos

    ePub ô A River In Mayñ Paperback A River In May There have been many books written about the Vietnam War but this one stands out in depicting the suffering on both sides but particularly on the Vietnamese civilian population It is a harrowing study of the pain and extreme hardships imposed on a war torn country It is also a tale of corruption both moral and financial The protagonist Lieutenant Lopez has come to Vietnam to put distance between him and a terrible tragedy at home He finds an even greater tragedy in Vietnam one which turns him into a drug user an alcoholic and eventually a totally lost soul The author paints a realistic picture of the conflict between being a soldier and witnessing atrocities that no one could be prepared for In the end the battle for Lopez's soul is neither won nor lost but the journey remains indelibly etched in our mindsIf I wanted to dissuade anyone from wanting to go to war this book would be o

    ePub ô A River In Mayñ Paperback A River In May There are sections in here that are simply splendid descriptions of either people or places that could not really be bettered But it is probably not the greatest Vietnam novel ever John del Vecchio's The 13th Valley for example is still among the best The 13th ValleyFor many readers probably the difficulty lies with the book's main character's trajectory While the end is somewhat inconclusive it is possible but the means by which he got to that point remains elusive In that sense the character's development is a little fuzzy so that the book's sections remain as vignettes some of them stunning rather than as building blocks towards a finaleIt is well worth reading though a sort of fictionalised counterpoint to what still remains after all these years as one of the best observer pieces Michael Herr's Dispatches Dispatches
