This novel is a poignant account of war and its long-term effects on the mind, the body, the spirit, and the soul.

¿Still the Monkey¿ is a portal to the experiences and emotions of Dennis Michaels, a soldier who had to face unimaginable horrors in Vietnam. In order to survive, he had to shut the human part of him down. He became a different person¿reborn. The innocence and feelings of safety were long gone. Although I have never experienced any war situation first hand, or even second hand, I was captivated by this novel. ¿Still the Monkey¿ speaks to anyone who has gone through an extreme life-changing trauma and continues to carry the ¿monkey on his back¿. This book is a loud wake-up call to all of us who are content to change the channel when we see any unpleasant images or stories on the news. It is because of our soldiers that we do not live in war torn neighborhoods, but are able to sit safely in our living rooms. I recommend this book to anyone who has experienced, or knows someone who has experienced war or other traumatic events and is searching for healing.

This book is a powerful accounting of what happens to young men (and women) when we send them off to be killers and then want to forget them when they come back. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is a lifelong battle for those affected and we, as a society, are not dealing with this issue. The view of wars like Iraq and Viet Nam are much different for those involved from what we are told by politicians. The scars of war last for decades if not centuries. I was a anti-war activist during the Viet Nam era and received Conscientous Objector status. This book supports my belief that war should always be the very last recourse and we should know and assess the real costs to individuals, countries and the world. Nobody every really wins a war. My father was a WW II vet who lost his right hand and part of his right arm in the invasion of France. He never got over what happened and struggled with depression the rest of his life. This book helped me understand more about him and our family. This book can be part of a debate of what American stands for in the world today. Alivia Tagliaferri has written a book with wisdom and insights way beyond her years on this planet.
