Book Review of The Things They Carried

The Things They Carried
bobcat avatar reviewed on + 10 more book reviews

Having read alot about Vietnam, and reading the reviews, I really expected to like this book. I didn't even finish it. I found it repetitive and frankly, boring. I guess if it's the only Vietnam book you read it might seem deep, but I consider "Matterhorn", or "The 13th Valley", "Nam" or "Dispatches" to be the best books about Vietnam. Sorry Tim, no disrespect for your service or experiences, but I wasn't impressed. Remember, this opinion is worth exactly what you paid for it. Happy reading...
