Book Review of The Things They Carried

The Things They Carried
reviewed on + 3 more book reviews

Just an absolute Man's Book. Whether or not a book or a collection fo short stories, it is a very well strung together piece of terrific writing. Makes you appreciate what you have and those who have gone before you, to places that you'll never have to go and to see things you will never have to see. O'brien goes through the things they carried, listing some by weight and factor awkwardness, but I couldn't help but think that they real thing they carried, these veterans and boys, could never be measured in pounds. That was the point for me, I suppose.
