Weird, in a good way...
on 28 March 2006
I found this book slightly confusing, but I actually think that was O'Brien's intention. He cleverly blurs fantasy and reality, while at the same time conjuring up vivid and distrbing images of the Vietnam war. It is very well written throughout and O'Brien's style keeps you hooked.
I bought this book after reading "If I Die in a Combat Zone", and to be honest I didn't enjoy this book as much. It's still very good, don't get me wrong, but if you're going to read one book by Tim O'Brien then go for "If I Die".
