Matterhorn, Vietnam War, Read-a-long

Last month, we highlighted the publication of Matterhorn by Karl Marlantes, which was pared down from 1,000 pages to a cool 600 pages.

As participants of the Vietnam War Reading Challenge, I urge you to check out and think about joining the Matterhorn readalong on Twitter. Everyone who is participating seems to be reading at their own pace and discussing it online. All you have to do is follow the hashtag #MHorn.

I hope to be joining and reading along with everyone on Twitter as well, but we’ll see how far I get before Book Expo America.


  1. Matterhorn sounds fabulous. I wish I could get my hands on the audio 🙂

  2. I don’t think I’ll be joining the readalong, but it’s a great idea. Looking forward to your thoughts on this book.

  3. I’ll be looking forward to your review of this one Serena. I heard a review on NPR and the critic liked it for the most part. I just don’t think I could read something this serious right now. Keep us posted!

  4. i can’t bear the thought of such a daunting book right now–i’m in a ‘light and fluffy’ phase as i gear up for summer. been reading a ton of YA and memoirs. good luck with this and enjoy BEA–i live so close to NYC but will be away, Niagara Falls, during the convention. drat those school trips! 🙂

  5. I have this one on hold but I’m 24th on the waiting list! And I’m not on Twitter. Maybe I should sign up again–a twitter readalong sounds fun!
