Summary

This is not the story of a hero. So begins the story of one of the most distinctive heroes you'll ever meet. Drafted into a war he barely comprehends with no taste for combat, Pup will find himself thrust into the very center of the conflict. How he affects that conflict, and how this changes him and everyone around him, is the soul of this utterly unique war story.

A book out of the ordinary

I selected this book thinking it was a memoir or similar, I missed the word "novel". I am glad I made that mistake as I found this to be a riveting story. It didn't glorify war, nor was it derogatory. It is a story of a misfit who is drafted into a "future" war and his experiences in country and how he became part of the brotherhood (and sisterhood) of his squad from being the strangest FNG they had encountered. Thanks for the story 👍🏻

awesome book!

What did you love best about Pup?

His sarcasm!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Pup?

When he rescued the little girl and ran through the mines without knowing it.

What about Brian Hutchison’s performance did you like?

How you can tell when he changed characters and the various pitches in his voice.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It did make me laugh quite a few times!

Any additional comments?

I loved how I felt like I was literally in the story. There were times when I thought I was walking around the camp and at the battlegrounds. This book is very well put together and very detailed. Great job Chris!
