Favorite Story in TTTC
My favorite part of The Things They Carried so far is Sweetheart of the Song Tra Bong. It was a really good story and I could visualize everything perfectly. I thought it was really sweet how Mark Fossie misssed his girl so much he flew her all the way from the states to Vietnam. Her transition from civilian to feral girl was quite fast and she took to the jungle with amazing finesse. This part really hooked me on the book and I finished it last night because I couldn't seem to put it down. Definitely one of the best books I have ever read.
