Book Review of The Things They Carried

The Things They Carried
reviewed on + 9 more book reviews

Fantastic! Although I believe that I heard some rumor at some point that O'Brien was never actually in Vietnam, I don't care (maybe someone who was would). I thought it was a really deep head-trip through the mind of a "solider" in service (and out). I assigned this book to my 10th grade honors students over the last two years (although not without many disclaimers as the book is very graphic in all areas - gore, violence, language, and sex) and it always got good reviews from them - especially from the guys, of course. But even the girls enjoyed the emotional roller coaster. I truly enjoyed this one and would definately recommend it!
