Jarhead

Anyone read that book, Jarhead. This best seller was pretty disapointing IMO. The writer went to Desert Storm and sat around for most of the time. He gets into one real contact during his time there and this is the basis of the whole book. Now they've made a movie out of it. http://www.apple.com/trailers/universal/jarhead/

Hope they movie has lots of artistic licence as I thought the book was complete poo!

Anyone read it, what do you all think?

If the book had been more structured it may have been worth a read. However it flies from basic, to far east, to leave, to Gulf without any apparent connection at any point.

If you break down what he has to say about life as a Girene then it only amounts to a couple of pages.

very disappointing book which appears to have been written by a 'jug-head'. IMO

:oops: Should read more carefully, blame tiredness and lack of coffee and screaming children :D At least I suppose, I've added another location for the film trailer :)
