Editorial Reviews

From Kirkus Reviews

"Nicholls is clearly a born storyteller. A fine first novel and an insightful meditation on the repercussions of war." "Kirkus Reviews"

Review

"Five stars (out of five)"
Nicholls is a fine writer who seamlessly employs a non-linear technique in which lengthy chapters about Dwyer's post-war (Vietnam) visits are interspersed with horrific stories of combat that fuel his PTSD. This excellent work of creative nonfiction will find a welcome audience among those who favor wartime accounts, and will hopefully comfort those still fighting their own PTSD-induced battles.  Fore Word Clarion Reviews

"This writer's re-creations of experience during the American war in Vietnam have great power and poignancy--the beauty of the Vietnamese people and of their culture.The writing is rich and good...these excellent passages...deserve to be written and shared for sure.    Honorable Mention Award by the 2013 Aloha Writers Conference writing contest judging panel."

I am a Marine Vietnam Vet and this book had many things about it that I identified with. I truly had trouble putting the book down and ended up reading it in less than 24 hours. I laughed, I cried, and was flooded with memories. It was an intense read and left me feeling somewhat exhausted. It was a highly accurate portrayal of the chaos PTSD can cause and also the strength of a veteran dealing with it. The situation with his wife at the end of the book will break your heart. Read it, you'll be glad you did! It will stir up some powerful emotions...........

Format: Paperback
As a Vietnam Vet , I was intrigued by the returning to Vietnam by a combat Vet.
Things change from the days of youth and combat to a Veteran looking for answers.

Stu manages to weave a tale of action, to redemption and completing his "mission" to return and find himself in helping the people that meant so much to him.

It is a good read and everyone will find something interesting in Thunder Road

Good book

An inspiring account of the life and struggles of a citizen soldier to resolve the many difficulties encountered in a war far from home and it's aftermath in the re-adjustment that it took to find his peace with those he loved and with himself. May God bless Mr. Stuart Nicholls. a friend - 11Bravo~

Where has this author, Stuart Nicholls, been hiding all these years? A novel based on his true story is so captivating that I couldn't stop reading. This book has adventure, intrigue, romance and more! It is sad that so many of our brave veterans have to live with inner turmoil after giving so much of themselves for our freedom. This story is told very well and is worthy of being made into a major motion film. Nicholls is such a natural story teller and writer, that I sure hope he continues writing more books for our enjoyment!
