I felt the murder plot was a little under-developed. I kept reading to find out who-done-it and it was a bit of a let down. Some of the Vietnam war crimes mentioned are headlines in today's paper. I did like the writing style and the main character, Cherry. But, I pictured her as a very tall, gawky albino which is how she was described but couldn't throw beautiful into the mix as they wanted me to.

Being a child born in the 60's, I don't know much about the Vietnam War, and what I do know I've learned from fictional stories such as this one. It helped me to understand what the men went through and what they had to overcome after coming back to the U.S. This story was exciting and intriguing. It was hard not to go to the end of the book and see who the real murderer of Carlene was. The character of Cherry was humorous, laughed at herself, and was sensitive and charming, as well as extremely naive. I enjoyed reading this story through her eyes, and I give Norris Church Mailer 5 stars for her first novel. Bravo!

I really enjoyed this book. I really could identify with the characters. It also really brought home the realities of the Viet Nam war and what people were struggling with during that time.
