    1. Written in 1994 when I originally read it but found it just as interesting and useful January 2015 when revisiting Vietnam. Parts of this well-written book are evergreen--for example, the sections on history and geography--while other elements have obviously changed with the 20 years that have passed. But that is the charm of this book and why I would recommend it to anyone traveling to or in Vietnam today. This 20-year gap is both amusing and enlightening as I read each chapter as I travelled m [...]


    2. This is the story of a journalist's trip through Vietnam shortly after Americans were allowed to enter Vietnam. I appreciated the historical aspects of the book but was hugely disappointed that Susan Brownmiller focused on that and not her experiences, her reactions and the reactions of the people she met. Although she offered occasional vignettes, their telling felt incomplete and I often got the feeling that she was alluding to something without giving me all the dots to connect.It was clear t [...]


    3. A wonderful companion for my trip to Vietnam; despite being 20 years old, the comparisons between what Brownmiller saw then, when the country had just opened to the US for tourism, and now. She weaves history, mostly about the war, into the very personal travel stories, which left me thirsting for more.


    4. DPL 915.9704 B A personal memoir of a trip to Vietnam, North and South, in 1992. Remembering the war through the prism of modern life. The usual troubles with conveyances and guides, but this is mostly about the uneasy alliances of communism and capitalism that is evolving.


    5. No doubt groundbreaking at the time Vietnam was "opening" to the west , but 15 years on it seems a bit dated. Still, the solid writing, with comments about the land and people, make for a worthwhile read.


    6. My favorite book of Susan's. It shows her personality so very well, more so even than "In Our Time," I think.
