A groundbreaking work that combines history and fiction, The Things They Carried has shaped the way people think about war ever since it’s publication. Tim O’Brien, both the author and the novel's protagonist, uses a series of fictional, but heart-felt and compelling short stories surrounding the Vietnam War to bring it to life for modern readers.
Each of these stories centers around “the things” that the men of the Vietnam War carried with them. Some of these things were physical while others were emotional and felt deeply. With each of these stories we become familiar with a cast of characters who bring the immense struggle, conflict and even growth of the Vietnam War to life. O’Briens complex but clearly intentional narrative engages readers until it’s conclusion. Whether or not readers are familiar with the history of the Vietnam War, this novel will invoke questions and thoughts that remain long after the reading is done.
