This was the first book I brought for myself. I love it. Definitely my favourite book of all times and one of my favourite movies. I love it so much that I wanted to call my daughter Paxton but my husband did not like the name and so instead we compromised and it is now her middle name.

Paxton Andrews comes from a very conservative family who she never felt very close to. But she has an extremely close bond with her nanny/chef Queenie. Finishing school she can not wait to escape the dark suffocating environment that she lives in and after failing to get into the school of her dreams Harvard attends Burkely in California. After falling in love with her room mates brother Peter he unfortunately becomes drafted in the Vietnam war and dies. Unable to cope with her grief she writes on behalf of the paper Peters father owns and travels to Nam where she can tell first hand what really is going on over there. There she not only falls in love with the country and the people but she falls for a married man who also is murdered while out on the field. In walks Tony. Tony is from New York and hates Paxton and everything she stands for but predictably they fall in love. The kind of love you only read about in a book so epic. When Tony goes MIA Paxton can not cope and returning back to the States realises her heart belongs to Nam and returns again.

Such a powerful emotional look at what happens during war. Although you do not read about the war and killings directly it does come up on the sideline and you are reminded what a terrible thing war really is not only for a country but for all of the people involved. I loved the friendships that she made and yes loved reading about her relationship more so with Tony then any of them. This is a book that I will reread for many years to come and am dying to see the movie again.

At first, Logan Ramsay isn't sure if anything's different. He just feels a little sharper. Better able to concentrate. Better at multitasking. Reading a bit faster, memorizing better, needing less sleep. But before long, he can't deny it: something's happening to his brain. To his body. He's starting to see the world, and those around him, even those he loves most, ... more...
