Teaser Tuesdays: The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading.

Grab your current read. Open to a random page. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!) Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien p. 31

"On occasions the war was like a Ping-Pong ball. You could put fancy spin on it, you could make it dance."

I was somewhat disbelieving that a book about war could be so beautifully written, but it's almost like poetry.
