Otherwise an amazing, amazing story. So many dilemmas, so much conflicting emotions, collateral sacrifice packed into a few pages. Yes there were parts where I wish the pace was picked up a bit, for example, the introspection chapter of Jerry Westerby by the Mekong river. But the overall impact of the book is almost physical.
