What Ms Gibb lacks in the narrative, she makes up for in the descriptive. An easy, interesting read but not worthy of five stars in a literary sense. What kept the pages turning for me - who was a teenager during the tumultuous years of the US involvement in Nam - was a glimpse at the history and sociopolitical evolution in the lives of the North Vietnamese as seen through the eyes of the main characters.
