The Pearl of Kuwait: A Novel of the Gulf War by Tom Paine Paperback 310 pages Military fiction/drama/humor
My thoughtful wife bought this book for me to have something to read on my way to Iraq. It's about Marines and Kuwait (close to Basrah!), should be a perfect for me.
I enjoyed reading the first couple of chapters but then it suffered from the final chapter drag on. I have to say that it started getting very difficult to finish reading the book, but I soldiered on and did.
Judging by the Amazon reviews everyone else seemed to enjoy it. My take, not a good read.
