An interesting Vietnam War tale by acclaimed author Tim O'Brien (Author of The Things They Carried.) I'm not that into war stories, but I enjoyed this one because of the unique manner in which it was written and the descriptions about the different characters who weave their way into Soldier Paul Berlin's life. A perfect mix of reality and fantasy.
This may be one of my all-time favorite books, or at least favorite Vietnam book. You are brought into the world of these men, boys actually, and immersed into Vietnam and Army culture. There is some fantasy mixed with reality, and I found myself wondering which parts are real. This is a beautiful classic and I won't forget it.
