The Things They Carried

The Things They Carried - Tim O'Brien A novel made up short stories. I would not have read this if it was not for The Big Read and I am so glad I did. This book is honest, brutal and rings with such truth and brilliance that the reader often forgets that s/he's reading a novel. It's an effect the writer wants, especially since the book has a character with the author's name and past. Well crafted and brilliant. A worthwhile read for any story lover.
