But "Finding David" isn't a book that debates the Vietnam war, it doesn't cast blame nor does it wrap itself in self righteous patriotism. Because Finding David isn't about the war in Vietnam...it is, though, a fitting tribute to the young men who fought there, many of whom came home to that divided nation, scarred, scared, grossly unappreciated and greatly misunderstood. Men who fought in America's most unpopular conflict and too often found themselves abandoned by the country and the people they had served.
That, on one level, is F. Mark Granato's novel. And "Finding David" captures that experience through Tommy DiMarco's battle in Nam and his ongoing struggles back in The States with horrifying reality, touching dignity and genuine empathy.
But that is only one aspect of Granato's remarkable book. Here, too, is a truly moving story of friendship, brotherhood, love, loyalty and family. Through realistic, multi-dimensional characters, this author takes the reader beyond Tommy's battle to readjust and gives us a heartwarming tale of childhood friendships, romance and a slice of 1950's, 60's and 70's life.
I was never in a war, hence I am no authority on the authenticity of the conflicts related in Finding David. I have no experience that could ever compare to what Tommy lives, neither on the battlefield nor in his long road to recovery. But, that being said, perhaps it is testimony to Granato's writing...Read more ›
Also, not sure I like the ending but, it was definitely a surprise! A worthy read.
