At first, I was a bit put off by the stilted style of the writing in Dead or Alive Agent Orange by Mary Rincon. Everything is so short and clipped that I felt it was jarring. However, as I thought about how this kind of writing was applied, and to which scenes, it actually started to make some sense. The narrator is struggling through the grief of her dying grandfather. When anyone deals with grief, how do they speak? Short, clipped, and vacant. No one really talks on and on; they are just wrapped up in their own thoughts, responding quickly and without emotion when they have been shaken by a question or comment from another person. In that respect, the writing style was quite brilliant. It portrays an emotion, a feeling, an image, without actually having spelled it out at all. Very attentive to detail and skillfully done.
The formatting was also a bit jarring until you get used to it. There were many chapters that were only a page or two, and the thoughts seemed to jump around a bit too much for me. However, if you stick with it, you really start to form a picture in your mind of what's going on and you get a curious sense of pride that you have pieced together all these scattered moments and memories. The book in general is a mix of genres. It's kind of a novel, but also kind of a memoir. It's difficult to place, but I thought it was very well written and well done. I would recommend for anyone looking for a bit of a thrill.

Hi Mary....An engaging title. From the brief excerpt, my curiosity is peeked:Is he dead or alive .... someplace...suffering from amnesia...or is himself working undercover....on the other hand, if he IS dead, was it Agent Orange which did him in...or was it something more sinister! Yes, this promises to be a good read! I hope your book gets read by many. Much success to you!

I do own this book, however it is a tough read. The grammatical and punctuation errors are so common that it almost seems as if the story was written by a young child in grade school. If you can get past that and struggle through you can still decipher what the author is trying to convey, however the story itself didn't capture my attention enough to continue reading. I would suggest the author uses some type of spell checking tool or submiting to a proofreading service before publishing a follow-up.
