Jeff Richards wants to make a difference when he enlists with the Marines to serve in the Vietnam War. Despite his wealthy parents’ objections, Jeff is determined to leave home and see life on the less fortunate side. He first notices the relentless heat when he lands in Vietnam, but this is the least of his problems. The more familiar he is with the place, Jeff realizes this is not what he had imagined. He meets Nick, a fellow Marine, the two become instant friends, and they spend the day touring the area. Jeff mingles with his fellow Marines and discovers they have unusual habits, but being with them makes him feel patriotic. He also becomes acquainted with the locals and hears some funny stories. That night, as he reflects on his first day, an incident reminds him that he is in a war-torn land. Get a copy of Unpleasant Pastures by Charles Feggans and join Jeff on his first day of duty.
I enjoyed reading Unpleasant Pastures because it is a unique story with memorable characters. War-related books typically concentrate on gruesome scenes or the traumatic aftermath. Charles Feggans has written a book that mainly centers on the military, local relationships, and their way of living. This was an unexpected storyline, which is why I loved this book. Jeff is only nineteen when he enlists; his innocence and adventurous spirit are palpable throughout the story. The moment he woke up to his reality, his tone and vibe changed, which showed his character development. Unpleasant Pastures is a memorable read, and I recommend it to anyone who loves reading military and war-related stories.”
