Still reading Dune. Im on pg 23 now.
Started it in December. Been to busy to read though, and i cant read on the bus.
View From a Low Bough by Barrie Crawley. A Corporal from 9RAR takes you on a walk through his tour of South Vietnam in 1969, you go where he goes, he introduces you to his mates and takes you on adventures to Vung Tau, Hong Kong, a US Special Forces training camp, bunker systems, boozer brawls and TAOR patrols. It's an interesting style and a good read.
Quite good, character development is pretty good although the characters are rather clique.Originally Posted by Nawlins
The book explores the same themes as many other books in the genre so don't expect anything particularly new.
Apart from that it is very well and intricately written and it's easy to become lost in the book (in a good way) and continue reading for hours.
I find it a rather enjoyable read and would definitely reccomend it.
Hope that helps.

Basically a chronical of a backwoods girl's experience at an elite university. It's a book about relationships, more of a chick read but i had it reccomended to me and I'm actually enjoying (but I do have to go out, rev my engine, kill something and eat a steak after I read just to regain my sense of masculinity).As Charlotte encounters Dupont's privileged elite--her roommate, Beverly, a Groton-educated Brahmin in lusty pursuit of lacrosse players; Jojo Johanssen, the only white starting player on Dupont's godlike basketball team, whose position is threatened by a hotshot black freshman from the projects; the Young Turk of Saint Ray fraternity, Hoyt Thorpe, whose heady sense of entitlement and social domination is clinched by his accidental brawl with a bodyguard for the governor of California; and Adam Geller, one of the Millennial Mutants who run the university's "independent" newspaper and who consider themselves the last bastion of intellectual endeavor on the ***-crazed, jock-obsessed campus--she gains a new, revelatory sense of her own power, that of her difference and of her very innocence, but little does she realize that she will act as a catalyst in all of their lives.
With his signature eye for detail, Tom Wolfe draws on extensive observation of campuses across the country to immortalize college life in the '00s.
