The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien

Shit, this book man, I don’t know what I can really say. Through fiction or nonfictional stories, this book throws you into the shit of the Vietnam war. I admit the book was all over the place, but it didn’t matter. It seemed to just flow.

I’ve played plenty war video games that try to put you in a soldier’s shoes and show you the terrors of war, but nothing was ever as immersive as this book was. At the end, it really gives you something to appreciate. Definitely recommend this for anyone who just needs or wants to feel small.
