Up Country

Up Country - Nelson DeMille 3.5* After reading this book, I think I could navigate my way around Vietnam with a rudimentary map, a motorcycle and a saddlebag full of wise-ass remarks.Part travelogue, part compelling combat memoir -- excellent thriller. *I just reread this as an audiobook and though I enjoyed it I'm deducting half a star for clumsy dialog, which is hard to overlook when you're hearing the book rather than reading it. You could have a fair drinking game using "I didn't reply", "she said nothing", "I informed her" and "she nodded".
