Review: Altamont Augie


Altamont Augie
Altamont Augie by Richard Barager

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



Wow. Richard Barager really turned my head with this telling of 1960's love, hate, war, fight for peace and the vivid, intense emotions on both sides of the American conflicts at home. The feelings of the brave who signed up to fight for their country vs. the opposing Americans at home who were violently (at times) opposed to the war.

I learned more about the actual feelings and tension at home while enjoying a love / hate relationship with an ironic beginning and ending.
