Book Review of The Things They Carried

The Things They Carried
Amyaloha avatar reviewed on + 31 more book reviews

Reads like poetry at times. O'Brien is sentimental but the subject is not. All the trauma of war and going off to war. My son had to read for school and he recommended it, not usually what he does when he is forced to highlight and re-read and dissect a book. Quite wonderful, an excellent writer with a fascinating way if telling about his life.
