    It wasn't assigned, I just picked it up (I read everything) when I was about 13 and read it cover to cover. Then I read it again. Painful, disturbing, nightmarish, but so so true.

    This was during the Vietnam war, and I remember wondering hadn't anyone else ever read the book, and if so, what the hell were we doing in Vietnam?
