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.… (mehr)

I wish I'd read this in high school. This is a book that can change a writer's whole world view on his craft. Every page, every story, every sentence, Tim O'Brien walks such a fine line between fiction and non-fiction I didn't even know if that line actually existed or not. It was amazing, manipulative in the most refreshing way. Really, what tied all the stories together wasn't that they all featured the same characters and settings and themes--it was the concreteness of that idea, of how the essence of life flows in and out of truth. And the ambiguity of O'Brien's genre--was he just putting his memory down on paper? or was he making up entire characters, settings, even themes, only inspired by a random thought from his past?--seems like the most powerful method one could use to pinpoint it down on a page and say "This is it--this is what Vietnam was, what life there was, what life is," and actually, totally make the reader feel the essence of the war, and of the soldiers' lives.

Basically, what I'm trying to say is--I had no idea if the stories he was telling were true or false. But I understood what they were trying to say. And my understanding made everything worth it. It's been an hour and I'm still shell-shocked. Some of O'Brien's images and ideas are going to stick with me for a long time.

Beautiful writing. I was especially moved by the final story. ( )

I wasn't really sure what to expect with this book. I had to read it for class and I don't always like all the books that I have to read (Beloved is a prime example) and I almost never would have kicked up any of these books on my own. On top of that, this was a war story. Maybe it would be a pity novel, or a story about an American hero. It wasn't. It was a collection of short stories all connected by unifying pain, guilt, and truth. His goal? To keep the dead alive through telling their stories. ( )

Honest. Raw. War is hell. ( )
  richardzinman | Aug 17, 2021 |
Collection de nouvelles sur la guerre du Vietnam et ses suites. Un nombre inattendu d'entre elles se déroulent aux États-Unis. De bonnes phrases mais aussi beaucoup de poncifs. Moyen. ( )
  Kuiperdolin | Aug 9, 2021 |
I still must approach this book with care. I am not generally a fan of war fiction, but this book goes so far beyond any and all expectations I had. It made me cry. A lot. ( )

"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.
