This novel of the Vietnam War got rave reviews and is supposed to be a very accurate portrayal of what the war experience was like. Knowing this before I started reading the book, it came as no surprise that the f-word was very prevalent in the book. I didn't get very far into it and have to just assume that there was a lot of violence and possibly other things that I didn't want to read. I assume that most of you wouldn't be all that interested in this type of book anyway but just in case you or someone you know has an interest, be aware-the language is awful! Rated R.
