  • enjoyable read

    Interesting and we'll researched view of the 20th century as seen through the eyes of a naive and somewhat unusual narrator looking back on her life.

  • Conflicting

    Thought it was a novel written about a second person, then realised it was written in the first person, so things changed. Almost like a personal memoir, but too mush step-by-step - I did this, then this, next this, so not literary enough to keep interest. Things jumped around in the crazy state of conflicts and war, so it finally began to make more sense. While I often didn’t see the merit of her photography at the time, I appreciated her changing tact and going for the more human aspect of the soldiers. Blood and guts was what we needed to get the country to abandon the US war efforts, but reminding the world that we just sent our boys over there to die and life was not as good as some photographs depicted sent many mixed messages back home. I am of that Vietnam era and find it a quite sensitive subject with secrets still hidden to the public who worried most about them. War is a man’s initiative with no sense of long lasting consequences. Heaven help us all. Final note - well done for all the crazy, but brave women who challenged the barriers and made their mark in the world at that time. May we live on in challenging the choices of our male comrades.

    Thanks for your feedback!
