Jumping to it out of the gate! I‘m at a #hotel in #CostaRica tonight, flying back to #NY early tomorrow. Hoping to get some good time in for #24in48 on the #plane! @24in48

At times the book feels a bit like a slog, but I never really lost interest in it. Like Bowden‘s other books, it was hard for me to keep track of all of the names of people and places and things. But once I let go of trying to do that and just focused on the general story of the battle, as well as some of the amazing individual stories that Bowden tells so well, I learned so much. Equal parts infuriating and inspiring, it‘s well-worth the effort!

Hester‘s curiosity & mischievousness got the best of her, and I had to make the hard decision to let her go.
.
She wasn‘t around for a long time, but she definitely made it a good time.
.
I couldn‘t be there with her because I‘m 8,000 miles away on a layover in South Korea while strangers stare at me as I cry. But I‘m lucky she‘s been so well cared for by a great vet team and loved by her second-favorite human.

Just a little bit of #LiteraryHistory! I‘m staying at the Continental Hotel in #Saigon, #Vietnam - where Graham Greene wrote The Wuiet American… So, clearly that‘s the book I have to be reading right now!

Finished this one in the hotel lobby waiting for the next airport shuttle. Some of the prose is beautiful, and the story is powerful. Definitely one I would suggest!
