I want to thank Josh Fisher for his guest post for the ULS, the Underground Library Society. Please check out his blog JDFISHER840 .
If for some reason, some entity decided to make books illegal, I would be hard pressed to pick but one. I would have to pick The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien. This book is a fictional book about a squad or element that is fighting in Vietnam.
Tim O’Brien goes into many details about fighting, living and surviving in a war that he did not wish to fight in, but he did not have a choice. The book tells numerous war stories about this controversial war. The stories are just that, stories.
This is a work of fiction about Vietnam but it is also a book about writing and telling stories. This book is something I will always love and will always be a book that I recommend to other people to read.
This is the book I would become.
