Loved It

If you could sum up Keeping Watch in three words, what would they be?

Hero at large.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

I enjoyed the plot as it was a continuation of "Folly" but also stood on it's own. The end did have me a bit concerned!

Which scene was your favorite?

I enjoyed both the history in Vietnam and the relationship between Allen and Jerry. True family devotion even when the years have gone by.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

You are not alone.

Any additional comments?

I enjoy many of Laurie R King's books, this series was one of them. She brings bravery and vulnerability to the table, often within the same character.

a bit much for me

I have been a fan of Laurie King, but this story was a little bit too over the top graphic for me. Yes, what war and trauma do to people has a profound effect on them... but there were places where it was traumatic just to listen to it. I liked the narrator, though... well presented story.
