As a Marine Corps veteran of Vietnam, I was unaware of the level of corruption and "kick backs" which the author exposes in this fine book. We didn't have access to most of the entertainment and clubs that this story involves. Artfully and intelligently written; "Goodbye Junie Moon" keeps the reader interested with a format that sling-shots back and forth between her earlier upbringing and her 3 years working in Vietnam. Get ready for a wild ride - June Collins bares it all in her honest account of corruption, intrigue, danger and adventure in a world most have not heard about before. This is an illuminating book!

Author of: "Everything Happened In Vietnam: The Year of the Rat"
The book starts with a sex scene, which might be a good hook for some readers and not others. I thought it was risky to do that. Actually, it is the most graphic sex scene in the book. As such, I thought perhaps readers would be thinking they were getting one sort or a reading experience while it turned out not to be the case. But it sets up the story of June's plot to expose the corruption, and to do that, she uses her body to get close to one of the perpetrators. Turns out this particular guy isn't the worst offender, but he is an offender. June comes to care for this man, but still, she has a job to do.
The chapters go back and forth, starting with June's journey from Vietnam to Washington, and then back to her childhood. It was a bit like two stories, one chapter from childhood/growing up, then one from June's adult life, her experiences after leaving Australia to her dancing career in the Philippines, Manila, and throughout Asia and finally Viet Nam. I thought that was an interesting structure, rather than the strictly chronological.
It is an honest portrayal of her life.Read more ›
