Reviews: IN THE WAKE OF THE BOATMAN by Jonathon Scott Fuqua

A couple participants in the Vietnam War Reading Challenge recently reviewed In the Wake of the Boatman by Jonathon Scott Fuqua.  Here are excerpts from their reviews; click on the link to read the full review.

everything distils into reading says, “In this novel, Putt has a lot of dilemmas: father/son conflict, homosexuality, transsexuality, war, alcoholism, death, loneliness, friendship, and romantic anguish. This novel wholly embolds its ambitious scope, including the ambiguity and loose ends that are part of any complex personalty. Putt is a complicated yet so very real protagonist with enough emotional courage to bind together the deeply conflicting issues depicted in the novel.”

not enough books says, “I was interested in the struggle between Putt and his true feelings and how he reacted to Vietnam and coming home after serving in Vietnam.  While this was part of the story, there wasn’t as much attention to it as I would want there to be. ”

**Attention participants:  Remember to email us a link to your reviews, and we’ll post them here so we can see what everyone is reading!**
