Farnsworth's Book- "A Bad Attitude:..."

Granny, Gadfly and I do not do adverts on this blog. This is merely a friendly notice to our readers about a fellow blogger's work - our friend Farnsworth - One Pissed Off Vet. http://opovet.blogspot.com

Sound like it will be a good read. I intend to purchase it when my next pittance arrives. Ofcourse I'll want it autographed!

A Bad Attitude: A Novel from the Vietnam War

The BEST Vietnam War book --
it's about me!




A Bad Attitude -- a Novel from the Vietnam War

Cover image, A Bad Attitude

NOTE: This book is in large part a work of fiction. Although the story was inspired by actual events, the names, persons and characters are inventions of the author.
Any resemblance to a particular individual, living or deceased, is purely coincidental.

A gripping suspense novel depicting life and death in a Transportation Corps outpost on the edge of Saigon in 1968, the deadliest year of the war.

Meet Farnsworth -- disgruntled draftee, reluctant soldier and world-class slacker -- is he also a cold-blooded murderer? But if he didn't kill the sadistic Sergeant Bragg, who did?

See the other side of the Vietnam War -- draftees versus lifers, the Saigon black market, deteriorating race relations and the deadly 1968 race riot at Long Binh Jail.

One reviewer called it "edgy and bitterly funny" and compared it favorably to both Catch-22 and M*A*S*H. See the complete review.

David Willson, author of In the Army Now, The REMF Diary and The REMF Returns, called it "an astonishing book...one of the dozen best novels set in the Vietnam War". Read his complete review.

Read the first chapter yourself; if you like it and want to know more, you can buy it online directly from the publisher, iUniverse.com. It's also available from Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble Online.

If you prefer to buy offline, your local bookstore can order it for you and it will be in your hands in just a few days.

Want an autographed copy? Send it to me by mail along with enough postage to return it and I'll be glad to sign it for you. If you'd like an additional inscription, please print it out so I'll be able to read it. I'm not as good at deciphering handwriting as I used to be.

Cheers Farnsworth. I hope a million readers buy it.

PS: I read the first chapter preview. Good! I'll buy the book.

I also don't do adverts. In fact, when I read on a blog "in my book....", that's almost always the last time I read that blog.

I didn't even know Farnsworth had written a book. But as a long time reader of his blog, and a Vet of that cluster "F" as well, I can't wait for it to arrive.

If his book is half as good as his blog, I'm going to be up late one of these nights.

The above was an unpaid endorsement, but I will accept bribes.:)

[WA: Hmmm! What sort of bribes?? I clicked on the link to read the first chapter and I was hooked. He's a good writer. When a writer can cause the reader to see the action and situation in his mind, the writer is good. I will order and read it. I have an idea it will go on my "keep and re-read" shelves. My eclectic array of books are quite democratic and never discriminate against their fellows.]

PS: Blogger/Google (the Dastardly Duo) is conspiring to drive me nuts again. Blogger would NOT link to The Future Was Yesterday and I had to do it manually. Also, often advising me that neither I nor my email exist, although it will email me at the nonexistent email address to confirm that I do exist. No matter how often I set the time on blogger settings for this blog, it always publishes my posts at Pacific time. More griping takes too much room. Sigh!
