2/10 novels: the things they carried by tim o’brien

"The Things They Carried is a collection of related stories by Tim O’Brien, about a platoon of American soldiers in the Vietnam War. The Things They Carried employs heavy use of metafiction, as O’Brien has stated his belief that truth can be more effectively communicated that way. Many of the characters are semi-autobiographical, and readers of O’Brien’s work will notice that some of the characters share similarities with characters from his memoir If I Die in a Combat Zone, Box Me Up and Ship Me Home. O’Brien dedicated The Things They Carried to the men of the Alpha Company with whom he fought during the war.” (x)
