   A book for everyone
I read this book because it is an optional novel for me to teach my sophomores. I was not expecting much from you. In my mind, I had it labelled as a book of the Vietnam wars, a boy's book and a black experience book. What I found was a gripping novel about war and compassion, humanity and the human. It was so great that I read the whole book in one sitting of five hours. At the exact moments it is needed, Meyers uses humor, cleverly manipulating the reader's emotions, and the character portrayals are so popular that I had the entire book cast with vivid actors within a few pages! This is one of the best books I read all year long and I will definitely use it in the classroom!
   Fallen Angels
Fallen Angels was a really good book and I like the fact that it is realistic fiction. There was a lot of action in it, which I liked and the way Walter Dean Myers made these people talk made it even more real for a book based on Vietnam. I gave this book 5 stars out of 5. I also read Sunrise Over Fallujah, but it was not as good, so I gave it a 4 - star rating. I really liked his writing style ''. I thought it was going to be a pretty boring book at first, and when I started to read it, I really enjoyed the book. I really hate reading, but if you don 't read this book, you are crazy. I would recommend this book to someone who loves action, because this is a graphical book. Perry and Pewee are really good friends and most of the time they go into action they are always watching each other's backs, which is good because friends should watch each other's backs. I really like the action in this book ''.
While at my local library, I picked it up and started reading it like always. After reading the first five pages, I couldn 't put it down, so I ended up owing it and paying a late fee for holding it for much too long. This book is great for parents. It brings your children into the real world, informs them about what has actually happened, and I am sure that you'll like reading this while watching T.V. Yes, this book contains a lot of swear words and there are some graphic scenes in it. But honestly, kids will start spouting at the 6th or 7th grade in school and obviously not around you guys. There is nothing you can do about it unless you follow them around the school and eventually you find out. I, however, would not recommend this book to ANYONE below the 6th grade. The kids read the book just for fun. nuff '' said Hirosh.
   Fallen war book
Fallen Angels is a book by a man named Perry and he is in the Vietnam War of the 1960s. He becomes friends with the people in his platoon and makes very close with them. There are a lot of action scenes in the book, like the time they went to a village to give supplies, and they were hit by VC and a man was killed. There are also some scenes where it gets a little boring, like how they are always in there barracks doing nothing but playing chess. I really liked this book, because it was so interesting and addictive. Some other things I like was that there were lots of surprises, like one minute they would all be fine and the next would say something, and it would set everyone off, but I kind of thought it was just a basic war book.
   Well written, accurate, captivating masterpiece.
I was given the option to select from a small list of books for a school assignment, and a friend of mine recommended Fallen Angels. I chose it because I like similar books and I enjoyed every other story I read from Mr Meyers and I do not regret my decision. There were a few errors in the wording of the digital copy compared to the narration, but they did not interfere with my reading experience. Love the book, the author, the narrator and every detail of the book.
It was an easy read and I would recommend it only to the high school level because of the language used by the characters and the grahic war scenes in the book. If you have some historical knowledge of this period, it would help you understand the setting of the book and events that led each of the characters to arrive in Viet Nam at war. It is well written and captures the human side of the soldiers pressed into situations over which they have no control. In this hostile environment, they must quickly grow up with what survival skills they have. It picks up your attention keeeps.
   Eye opening
This was shockingly descriptive and a lot of work to take in. If you want to pick up the truth about Vietnam from some real characters, you have to narrate it.
   Awesome Book
This is a great book about young soldiers'experiences in Vietnam. This book has a lot of information about the war, along with a good story to keep you interested. I enjoyed reading this book and if you like reading war stories, I would definitely recommend this book.
   Good author the book is Another good insight into the Vietnam war
I read this book back in high school, my son is old enough to start reading books and reading them and I remembered some of the ones I read in the past that I enjoyed and this one is one of them and is a good adventure and re-readable 25 years later.
   Supportive In the War
I use the cultural version of the book for online influences in literature. Every time we read a new book, Mrs. Watkins gives us a comprehension sheet to ensure what we learned from the book.
