really liked it

After reading the book I realized that the stories were true but the reality was stretched. Tim O'Brien did a great job of depicting the Vietnam War and showing what it did to him and his comrades. The way Tim O'Brien writes amazes me because it is very complex and it makes one think. I was riveted by his descriptions and it drew me in almost as if I could see everything that happened. By the end of the book I was forced to think about the book as a whole. Tim O'Brien impressed his readers throughout the book and left us wide-eyed by his ability to tell war stories. I liked the book because he was able to capture the diversities that war units are paired with such as: Kiowa,Kurt Lemon,Rat Kiley,and Jimmy Cross.
