This depicts the men of Alpha Company. They battle the enemy (or maybe more the idea of the enemy), and occasionally each other. In their relationships we see their isolation and loneliness, their rage and fear. They miss their families, their girlfriends and buddies; they miss the lives they left back home. Yet they find sympathy and kindness for strangers (the old man who leads them unscathed through the mine field, the girl who grieves while she dances), and love for each other, because in Vietnam they are the only family they have.… (mere)

I wish I could rave over the brilliance of this novel as many others have. I can’t give it bad marks because it was well written and full of emotion about the Vietnam war that is very painful and heartfelt. However it was just strange to keep reading references that O’Brien makes about stories that aren’t true that are really more true than the actual events. What??? Are the stories he relates true or even mostly true? Did he kill the slim young Vietnamese man or did he just witness it and it was so painful to him that it was like he killed him? It is just confusing. The stories are very good, it's just an issue for me that I want to know what was real and what is make believe.

I can't imagine the agony any young man had to go through when he received his draft notice. To go war or go to Canada as a draft dodger wasn't much of a choice. And one statement that O'Brien makes in this book really resonated with me in view of the past decade watching our young men and women die in Iraq and Afghanistan. He said "It was my view then, and still is, that you don't make war without knowing why. Knowledge, of course, is always imperfect, but it seemed to me that when a nation goes to war it must have reasonable confidence in the justice and imperative of its cause. You can't fix your mistakes. Once people are dead, you can't make them undead." Yes, exactly. ( )

A collection of stories from someone who was a junior enlisted draftee in an infantry unit during the Vietnam War. He had some pretty good stories about the others in his platoon, and those were best because they were without his postwar anti-war rationalizations. The audiobook, which was great, included a more current-day account of the author’s return, and that wasn’t particularly good. ( )

THIS is the book every English major should read. On the surface, it's a story of Vietnam. But really, it's the story of ourselves. ( )
  DrFuriosa | Dec 4, 2020 |
Great book for an independent read especially for students interested in the military. ( )
  NJecmenek | Nov 12, 2020 |
Masterful storytelling: a sequence of stories that twist and turn and bounce off each other; writing so powerful that it steals your breath; it captures the moral confusion that is the legacy of the Vietnam War.

"As the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan drag on, O’Brien’s powerful depictions are as real today as ever."

This book is essentially different from any other that has been published concerning the 'late war' or any of its incidents. Those who have had any such experience as the author will see its truthfulness at once, and to all other readers it is commended as a statement of actual things by one who experienced them to the fullest.

First Lieutenant Jimmy Cross carried letters from a girl named Martha, a junior at Mount Sebastian College in New Jersey. They werre not love letters, but Lieutenant Cross was hoping, so he kept them folded in plastic at the bottom of his rucksack.

It was my view then, and still is, that you don't make war without knowing why.

I was a coward. I went to the war.
Garden of Evil. Over here, man, every sin's real fresh and original.
"Well, right now," she said, "I'm not dead. But when I am, it's like . . . I don't know, I guess it's like being inside a book that nobody's reading."
I want you to know why story-truth is truer sometimes than happening-truth. Here is the happening-truth. I was once a soldier. There were many bodies, real bodies with real faces, but I was young then and I was afraid to look. And now, twenty years later, I'm left with faceless responsibility and faceless grief.

Here is the story-truth. He was a slim, dead, almost dainty young man of about twenty. He lay in the center of a red clay trail near the village of My Khe. His jaw was in his throat. His one eye was shut, the other eye was a star-shaped hole. I killed him.

What stories can do, I guess, is make things present.
