Real War

This book is really well written on the part of Walter Dean Myers. It shows how real war is, and how war doesn't just make men into soldiers, it takes boys and turns them into fighters who fight by instinct to survive, live, and kill. I say kill because really these soldiers don't kill for the US, they have to kill to survive, in Nam, it's kill or be killed. And this novel shows that extremely well. Unfortunately along with that comes violence swearing and all that other good stuff parents love, but the exposer shows how these boys transformed, and not in a good way.

Fallen Angels review by Jonathan Lopez

After finishing the book "Fallen Angels" by Walter Dean Myers as my eighth grade reading project I found myself relieved to say that i finished the book. Although I found the story to be very exhilarating,the story had very graphic content which for some may be off putting. Despite the graphic content and occasional use of profanity, "Fallen Angels" ,unlike books i have read in the past, not only made me laugh,but also got me thinking about the events that occurred throughout the story. Perhaps it's brutal reality of the war,not to mention the many unique personalities that each character had, is what makes this book so enjoyable.

Fallen Angels

Fallen Angels was a great book. Even though it had some harsh language it tells the realties of war, and makes you think twice about the risks that are taken when joining the war effort.

Graphic, intense, and brutal war story

Fallen Angels is an intense, gritty Vietnam war story that offers plenty to think about. This is a rare book because it does not glamorize the violence of war. It is portrayed as it is: sad and brutal. There is lots of strong language, including tons of uses of words like f-ck and s-it. There is also some sex talk between soldiers and references to venereal diseases. Overall, Fallen Angels should be read by anyone mature enough for it.

Good Book

I love this book and it never gets old. I read it over and over again. But i would not recommend book for kids under the age of 13. They might not understand what the book is saying, and the book does give you graphic details about war.
