Across the Pond - Michael McCormick

I always find it hard to say something about a book that's obviously as personal as this one. It is without a doubt a very felt account of one's time in Vietnam. But as a story, it fell short for me.


Basically because it was all over the place. It is a very short story and it's divided into so many flashbacks and changes of timepoints that I still got confused and it was hard for me to get into the story.


I think it might probably work a lot better if you have your own memories to the Vietnam war or that time period, but I noticed that it wasn't really for me.


Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
