Books: The Cheapest Vacation You Can Buy

{February 11, 2012}   {Review} America Goes On: A Novella by Paul Salvette

From Goodreads: A young veteran of the Iraq war drives across America while struggling to find his place in the country he just defended. Confronted with complacent attitudes and narrow minds, he realizes his fellow citizens don’t even understand America is at war, let alone respect his sacrifice. At least he has his fellow Marines from his second tour of duty, along with a mysterious girl who is waiting for him on the East Coast. Or so he thinks. Travel with this veteran through the barren desert of California all the way to New York City as he learns about modern America, as well as himself.


This is one of those stories where you think you know the answers, you think you know what’s going to happen, only to have the rug pulled out from under you as it all unfolds.  This is a very interesting story about a young veteran crossing the country to meet the girl of his dreams.  It’s a very powerful story, and the ending left me breathless.

Whether or not we support the war, we need to support our troops, who risk their lives for us, whether we want them to or not.  Without their sacrifices, we wouldn’t remain free.  Read this novella; it’s amazing. Four stars.

I received a copy of this novella from the author in exchange for an honest review.
