Review: THE THINGS THEY CARRIED by Tim O’Brien

Michele at A Reader’s Respite recently sent in a link to her review of another Tim O’Brien book, The Things They Carried.  Here’s a little of what she had to say about the book:

All facets of the war are examined within these pages: the brutal death of a close friend, the suicides that came later, the political insanity, the day-to-day drudgery. The elegant combination of these facets don’t provide any answers or larger moral story. There is, however, the distinct impression that a catharsis may have been reached for O’Brien and that, in and of itself, makes the book worth your time.
