    PDF/EPUB Elizabeth Ann Scarborough æ æ The Healer's War PDF/EPUB Ù The Healer's Epub / healer's download, The Healer's book, The Healer's War PDFit's pretty rare to read a war novel by a woman and despite the sf trappings that's what this one is for that reason alone it's worth a readour protag Kitty is a Vietnam era nurse in a seaside base camp relatively safe from being bayonetted but not immune to rockets she cares for both American GI and Vietnamese civilian patients with thorough professionalism for the former and actual care for the latter as the Vietnamese patients are there for a longer haul and she has time to get to know them one such patient is an old monkish sort unfortunately in this time named Xe who has an interesting amulet that allows people who touch it to see aurasok so the

    PDF/EPUB Elizabeth Ann Scarborough æ æ The Healer's War PDF/EPUB Ù The Healer's Epub / healer's download, The Healer's book, The Healer's War PDFStill we spent most of our beer drinking time talking about the book so I'll count it as a win And one thing that kept coming up for both my husband and I was that this really wasn't a fantasy Yes there's an amulet in the book with a few magic powers but it's in some ways such a minor part of a straight forward Vietnam novel The most magical power it seems to have other than you know healing is as a plot pass to get a white woman in among the Vietnamese people and then the Viet Cong without long term injuryNote The rest of this review has been withheld due to the changes in Goodreads policy and enforcement You can read why I came to this decision hereIn the meantime you can read the entire review at Smorgasbook

    PDF/EPUB Elizabeth Ann Scarborough æ æ The Healer's War PDF/EPUB Ù The Healer's Epub / healer's download, The Healer's book, The Healer's War PDFIn theory this should be right up my alley A fantasy novel set during the Vietnam War I can neither confirm nor deny that I've run that DD campaign multiple times I'll even go for Magical Realism Vietnam War a la Apocalypse Now or Going After Cacciato In some ways given the shambles of the actual war it serves well enough as a playground for psychological drama above logical senseThe first half plays it pretty straight Lt Kitty McCulley is a nurse in Vietnam in 1969 much like our author Her life consists of 12 hour shifts on the ward treating a rotating cast of wounded GIs and a long term group of Vietnamese patients Americans don't stay long either well enough to head back to their units or hurt enough to be medevaced to Japan The Vietnamese lucky

    PDF/EPUB Elizabeth Ann Scarborough æ æ The Healer's War PDF/EPUB Ù The Healer's Epub / healer's download, The Healer's book, The Healer's War PDFThis won the Nebula in 1989 On the one hand I can see why but on the other hand I'm left scratching my head a bit It's an often grim and brutal portrait of the reality of the Vietnam War and it has a ring of authenticity given that Scarborough was herself an army nurse there The fantasy component an amulet is almost incidental to the essentials of the story That's the part that makes me scratch my head about the award this is barely a fantasy at allAs you might expect from a realistic war story few people here are all bad or all good including the bad guys with one exception near the end One surgeon is a virulent racist but a kind and dedicated doctor to the American wounded; the narrator herself cares deeply for her Vietnamese patients but is shallow and self centered in other ways; a Viet Cong colonel is a barbaric warr

    PDF/EPUB Elizabeth Ann Scarborough æ æ The Healer's War PDF/EPUB Ù The Healer's Epub / healer's download, The Healer's book, The Healer's War PDFThe Healer's War is a great example of a book I shouldn't have liked for at least two reasons One it's set in the Vietnam War a downer topic if ever there was one Second it's yet another example of the pseudo fantasy genre In other words fiction that's been classified as a fantasy due to some minute barely discernable use of fantasy elements in the story In this case the fantasy part is an amulet that allows an army nurse to read people's auras So disappointing As far as I'm concerned only pseudo science fiction is a bigger travesty That said once I got over the idea that I was reading a fictionalized memoir instead of a fantasy I foun
