Review: GOING AFTER CACCIATO by Tim O’Brien

Scrappy Cat recently read and reviewed Tim O’Brien’s Going After Cacciato for the Vietnam War Reading Challenge.  Here’s a snippet:

“Cacciato, a private, goes AWOL in 1968 Vietnam to walk 8,000 miles to Paris.  The rest of his squad goes after him.  The events get more and more absurd as it goes along, until you really wonder what is real and what isn’t.  It is told from the point of view of Paul Berlin, one of the soldiers in Cacciato’s squad.  I wasn’t sure whether I was going to like it at first, but I did.”
