Matterhorn (Grove)
PNBA Award Ceremony and Reading
Saturday, March 12 at 6:30pm

Gritty, intense, and captivating from the first page, Matterhorn is a masterpiece, shedding light on the complexities of the U.S. Marine combat experience in Vietnam. The riveting narrative takes the reader up and down the chain of command, creating empathy with nearly every character. Marlantes demonstrates the ripple effect that small decisions can have, often to the detriment of those they were meant to help.

Seattle Times Book Editor Mary Ann Gwinn reviews Matterhorn.
