Having visited Danang several times and spoken with many people, including some of Hayslips contemporaries, I agree with some opinions that what this book may perhaps sacrifice in terms of literal adherence to events, it more than makes up for in a great story and vivid impression of those tragic and temultuous times. It also gives an insight into how some (of the many different peoples in and around that region) felt and were motivated to do what they did and how the events subsequently shaped their lives.
I really enjoyed the narration. It was a unique style but seemed to me wholly fitting. I listened to this book while looking out at the similar life and scenery in a neighbouring country I was travelling through - it made it so much more memorable than focusing on a printed page could have ever been.
This book is quite remarkable, but the narrator and the condition of the recording make it impossible to listen to, I had to resort to the book instead. Too bad.

I was very disappointed with this audio for the book. It does not tell the whole book and it jumps around sentences. It is very frustrating. I am listening to it now and do not know where I am in the book as we speak. The chapters in the title is also wrong.
