Amazon.com: 4.2 out of 5 stars 32 reviews
4.0 out of 5 stars Very succinct. 28 May 2014
By Dule Lomo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The author doesn't spend a lot of time describing the scenery or giving too many details about each character, instead letting the actions of the characters and dialogue carry the story. Whether or not that's a good thing depends on your particular reading style. Not too much is left open for interpretation as the protagonists relays their thoughts and feelings almost precisely. A few spelling and grammar errors were found which sometimes takes you away from the flow of the story to re-read the passage and see what the author meant.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Realistic Gut-Punch of a Novel! 22 Jan. 2013
By David Hall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was going through my Kindle, clearing out old stuff and sorting the remainder into collections, when I saw "Another Day in Paradise" listed all by its lonesome. I figured it to be some impulse purchase (it was), and after skimming the first page or so I'd know where to shunt it off to. By page two, I was hooked, and I haven't been able to put it down for more than an hour.

Justin Burgess has written an exceptional, realistic, emotionally-affecting novel. As I am a former combat arms platoon leader, staff officer and company commander (Cold War era), Burgess's descriptions of his narrator's life rang true to me 100% of the time. While I only served in Iraq, not Afghanistan, and not as a combat arms officer, I still saw complete, stark truth in his depictions of the warriors and the "Fobbits". Finally, having been connected to Fort Lewis, Washington almost continuously since 1980, I have to say that Jason Burgess nailed the scenes on and off post. Many of the people living in our area who are not connected to the military have absolutely no idea that there's a simmering volcano of anger, pain, relief, and confusion on the part of those deploying and redeploying to the war, or preparing for the next deployment, while trying to maintain a veneer of civility for the sake of the civilian populace.

This novel reads like a memoir, which is one of its strengths. Justin Burgess didn't pull any of his punches, nor does his (presumably) alter-ego, CPT Chris Braddock. For this reason, "Another Day in Paradise" may very well put-off readers who are unfamiliar with the military culture, and assume that Army officers are merely clean-cut drones from cookie-cutter suburban backgrounds, remaining wholly unaffected by what they've seen and done over the past decade of war. If you happen to fit in that demographic, this will probably be a very uncomfortable read. But if you are sincerely interested in gaining a bit of perception about this other world, you will be richly rewarded by this novel's honesty and terrible beauty.

As for me, if I happen to run into Justin Burgess on post sometime, I will be honored to shake his hand and buy him a drink...he's more than earned it with this novel.
5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful. 29 May 2014

Justin does an incredible job of painting a picture for the reader. The sights, smells, and sounds of combat in Afghanistan come alive as the myriad emotions of the narrator become the reader's own emotions. Don't but this book if you dont have a block of several hours to sit and enjoy it, because if you put it down part way through it'll be all you're thinking about until you're able to pick it up again.
5.0 out of 5 stars Harsh, compelling, fate filled combat in Afghanistan 22 May 2014
By Sam B. Wagner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A beautifully written graphic account of the ground war in Afghanistan as seen through the eyes of experience with all the personal reflections, the adrenalin rush of contact with the enemy, and the loss of friends. This is modern warfare as it is not often reported. A classic insight into a seldom understood conflict. Well worth the time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quick read 12 Aug. 2013
By Michael I Pawlus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It's an ok book to sit and read in an afternoon. The author ties in realistic military scenes with some pretty interesting, and somewhat hard to believe side stories. It's entertaining enough to read though.
