  1. Dylan Mcswaggerpants

    I LOVE IT I got wind of this book from the Juniors this year saying that they had to read it for American lit next year and i wanted to give it a try I didn t expect much but a another war book with a few interesting parts shoved in the pages This took me completely by surprise The first chapter was full of literary devices and motifs that one could grasp on to and guide themselves through the chapter All throughout the first chapter there was the constant idea of weight One ounce, 10 lbs, 24 oz [...]

    Wow moving vivid hard to get out of your head once you imagine all the words makes me want to go to vietnam now to rewatch all those series of NAM when I was a kid to find out about Tim O Brien And to make sure, somehow, no baby buffalo ever has to go through that ever

  3. Glenda Carroll

    Haunting, hypnotic prose that gets to the very core of what war is like I have never read anything like this.

    I remember hearing the first chapter of this book read on NPR s Selected Shorts in the summer of 2002, and thinking it was one of the most beautiful things I d heard a beautiful meditation on humanity, war, and how the things we carry sustain and weigh on us The rest of the book wanders in and out of the territory and the narrative O Brien lays out in that first chapter Nothing in the rest of the book even the last chapter is as tight or beautiful as that first chapter But it s still a great wor [...]

    The Things They Carried by Tim O Brienreviewed by NC WeilThis book has won many accolades, as short pieces and as a whole It deserves them all But I m afraid to recommend it to my sons, who are in their twenties Its juxtapositions of life and death, of ghoul humor and matter of fact insanity, are so raw, I fear my sons will fall in love with war, and want to be part of it, and be lost to life.In today s paper in 2010 there s a story about the 5th Stryker Brigade in Afghanistan five soldiers are [...]

    This is a thought provoking and heart wrenching work that is told over the series of small stories While each story starts abruptly they tend to have common themes and share the same set of characters or less told in chronological order from events of the war in Vietnam Those stories blend truth and fiction so much so that the reader doesn t really know what s real, but that is one of the main themes of the book It is an emotional ride where you really feel for the characters told in stories fu [...]

    Tim O Brien illuminated the emotional and physical burdens soldiers carried during the Vietnam War His style of writing is both straightforward and eloquent The soldiers were referred to as tangibles and intangibles Unlike the tangibles items, the intangibles were something the soldiers would not, and could not, physically set down The book itself contains interconnected stories about the soldiers O Brien was able to link the gaps between each character and formed a cohesive story His work impac [...]

  8. Paul Courchene

    Great set up for some very poignant moments As far as combat autobiographies go this one was not stressful like Eugene Sledge s book or deep in details like Tommy Franks book but still a good short story to read.

  9. Darren

    just finished this book for the 2nd time and it got even better I would recommend this to anyone, even if they are not into Vietnam its then a war story.

  10. Stephen Park

    I have read these stories, as well as some of his other tales, and they are magical in understanding especially if you are an old grunt.

  11. Marcia Ronsani

    Nothing brings the reader the experience of Vietnam and how it shaped a generation like this book does.
