Boot: A Sorta Novel of Vietnam


Boot: A Sorta Novel of VietnamBoot: A Sorta Novel of Vietnam by Charles L. Templeton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Funny how mad the world can be sometimes..

Inspired by the author’s own experiences of US military operations during the Vietnam War, Boot: A Sorta Novel of Vietnam by Charles Templeton combines both satire and psychology in this wonderfully written and richly descriptive historical fiction.

There’s no doubt for me that Boot: A Sorta Novel of Vietnam is an exceptionally well-written book. However, it must be said that this story is not for the faint-hearted. The author’s script at times is razor-sharp and will cut deep into the emotions of its reader. There are shocking and intensely graphic scenes. Nevertheless, the themes and outcome are just as affecting in the arresting contemporary landscape when you consider you don’t have to look too far to see the appalling consequences of war even today.

This ‘Sorta Novel’ could only have been written by an individual who experienced war firsthand. Read it and you’ll know what I mean. Highly recommended and a well deserved five stars from me.
