Review: THE BARRACKS THIEF by Tobias Wolff

Not Enough Books recently read and reviewed The Barracks Thief by Tobias Wolff for the 2010 Vietnam War Reading Challenge.  Here’s an excerpt:

The Barracks Thief is a very different sort of book.  It doesn’t revolve around fighting in Vietnam or how people adjusted once they were back, etc.  It’s more about these three men and how each of them end up in the Army for different reasons and react to it differently.  While I don’t think I fully got the meaning behind the entire story, I thought it was interesting and a worthy read (and at only 101 pages it’s a quick one!)

Read the full review.
