The Things They Carried - Tim O'Brien - A Short Summary and Review


A short summary of The Things They Carried:

What soldiers carry into (and out of) combat.

My favorite Tim O'Brien quote from the book:

"A true war story is never moral."


Questions to ponder while reading The Things They Carried:

What would you bring with you?

What would you bring home?

My thoughts about The Things They Carried:

Haunting tales that will never leave me.

Deep puddles of darkness in this war.

The necklace of tongues was a bit excessive.
