I got 4 pages left.  I just fell asleep reading it.
I will finish up here in a minute.

No soup for me.

Cool though I'll have to start discussions a little later (possibly tomorrow morning).

Yes I think I'll stay away from soup for a while  :speechless:

Yes so what do we think so far?

Was there ever a real orangutan on the "present time" hunt at the beginning or way Luy simply hallucinating?

How would we say the experiences of Quan are like and how do they differ from those of an American soldier who also joined up at 18.

I think those should be good for a start.

It's hard to say one way or the other on that one.  Everybody is so meat craved, and just hungry in general.  Might have possibly been mass hallucinating the first time they ate the orangutan meat.  They might have just eat dead people.

It was probably just an honest mistake because his strong desire to eat.

You know I'd not thought of that but yes that is possible, they may well have never eaten Orangutan at all. Oh god.

The bit where Quan gives in and eats some of the hand is the stand out moment of horror in that section, even the accidental shooting pales by comparison.

As far as the second question of yours goes, I think both sets of 18 year olds had a lot of indoctrination that they went through.  Both were told that the war was for the good of their country.  But when the war is on your land it is much easier figure out the real reasons for fighting.

I don't think most American soldiers ever really figured out why they were fighting.

Also I think that while there were a few lifers in VN the majority of the American side who joined at 18 wouldn't still be there at 28.

So what they experienced would be potentially a small part of their life, even if it was a horrific and indelible part, it wouldn't be the whole of it.

116 I think,

Actually you're ahead of me, i had some grandmother things to deal with I'm just past Quan's horrible realisation about the valley of the pregnant cows. But I should be at the next check point shortly.
