"An unforgettable book. It is so carefully crafted, so clever in its slow build up of love. affection, and all the life questions that go with it. Bravo, congratulations on telling so much of what went on in an unbelievable fantasy land, the Republic of Korea."
"For those that have served on the Korean peninsula during or near this timeframe; this book should really bring back memories of what it was like back then as Norris explains in great detail, not only what the life of a GI was like in the ville, but the girls working there as well. Norris does a great job describing the girls working in these clubs by really bringing home to the reader that these girls were more than just prostitutes, but people who also had hopes and dreams before being shackled by the club system."
