"Fallen Angels" is an excellent book for teenagers. This book tells you about a 17 year old teenager that goes into the Vietnam War and just wanted to go there until he gets his life together. But his plan doesn't turn out the way he thought it would. Let me tell you the three reasons why I thought "Fallen Angels" was a great book. First of all because this book is very intriguing. Also this is the type of book that I like to read. Last of all this book always keeps you on the edge of your seat(or in my case bed). Now read on to find out why this book was very intriguing.
Let me tell you why this book was very intriguing. First of all this book was very intriguing because it was eye-catching. It was eye-catching because the cover jumps out at you. As Dan Myers said "This book was one of the greatest literary works in history." Also this book make you think that you were really in the war. Some of the parts were so real I had to stop reading it for a while. Relating to that sentence when a soldier was dying I almost thought I was dying myself. That is why a few other people and I thought this book was very intriguing. Keep on reading to find out why this was my type of book.
Now I am going to tell you why this was my type of book. First of all this was my type of book because it had adventure in it. I love books with adventure in them because I am an adventurous type of guy. Also this is my type of book because it relates to the ARMY. Since I am an adventurous type of guy I want to be in the ARMY when I grow up and that is another reason why this is my type of book.

I am 12 years old. I am not yet finished with "Fallen Angels", but the first 7/8 of this book have given me more to think about than every other book I've read COMBINED! It'll make you cry. It'll make you seethe with anger at the Vietnamese (and the Americans). It'll make you think. A haunting, powerful book. One of the best ever written. If you want to read a masterpiece war story, this should be your first choice. Outstanding.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The book Fallen Angels was written by the fantastic young adult author Walter Dean Myers. The story takes place in the jungles of Vietnam where a young man named Richie Perry is pushed into a violent war that he doesn't understand and has to fight for the life of his comrades and his own. This story will keep you interested to the end. Besides Richie Perry, this book is filled with a full cast of colorful characters like Peewee who is a rather small man in stature, yet he doesn't let that stop him from from telling anybody how he feels no matter what their size. Other characters such as Lobel, Monaco, Johnson, Brunner, and Sergeant Simpson also help make this riveting story come to life. There is a downside to all of these great things and that is the lack-luster ending. That is where the book comes to a screeching hault and leaves you wondering about how they get home and what happens when they get there. I would strongly reccomend this book to anybody who is interested in learning a little about our country's involvement in Vietnam ,and the lives and trials of another era long since passed.

I read this book as an assignment to create a lesson plan for my future references. It is probably one of the best books that I have ever read. The characters in this book are so believable that I feel like I know them personally. I think that it is a great way for students to learn about life during the Vietnam War. I recommend it for people 16 on up. The action pact plot will keep readers from putting it down.

This book is about what Rich Perry (main character) and his soldier buddies that was in his platton.It talks about what they had to do inorder for them to stay alive and survive.
When ever Rich and his platoon is at a gun fight, It makes you feel like you were their taking a video or taking pictures while they were fighting their enemies.This book really gets very exciting.Especially the parts when Rich and two other soldier buddies almost died.Their is so much action on this movie to make Rambo look like Dumbo.
It gets interesting when ever the Rich in his platoon are just kicking back.Because they would always make fun of each other.Every time they would make fun of each other, It makes them feel like there not even at War.And it also makes them forget about what they've experience while in a gun fight.
I liked this book because it was interesting and a lot of action. I wacth alot of War movies. But I think if this was turned into a movie, Then The best War movie of the year would go to Fallen Angels.

By TeensReadToo TOP 500 REVIEWER on 12 July 2008
Format: Mass Market Paperback
FALLEN ANGELS takes place among the rice fields and swamps of Vietnam.

Teenager Richie Perry is sent to Vietnam when he enlists in the war. For the first time in his life, he is far away from his mom and younger brother, who are back in Harlem, New York. Perry meets many friends along the way, such as Lieutenant Carroll, Peewee, and Monaco. Perry has to not only survive the war, but also the effects of the war -- both physical and emotional.

Walter Dean Myers writes a touching story of a seventeen-year-old boy fighting in a very controversial war. This book gives readers a personal viewpoint of the infamous war that no history book can. Myers creates relatable characters that all readers are sure to love. This real-life, action-packed tale is one to please all readers, regardless of age.
