Description de l'ouvrage

14 décembre 2000 Cliffs Notes
The original CliffsNotes study guides offer expert commentary on major themes, plots, characters, literary devices, and historical background. The latest generation of titles in this series also feature glossaries and visual elements that complement the classic, familiar format.

In CliffsNotes on The Things They Carried, you discover Tim O'Brien's powerful and innovative novel about the experiences of foot soldiers during and after the Vietnam War. Drawing largely on his own experiences during the war, the author creates a fictional protagonist who shares the author's own name, and allows this fictional "Tim O'Brien" to relate disturbing war stories as he creates an indictment against the wastefulness of war.

Chapter summaries and commentaries take you through Tim O'Brien's very personal journey. Critical essays give you insight into the novel's historical context, the novel's narrative structure, and the theme of loss of innocence. Other features that help you study include

  • Character analyses of the main characters
  • A character map that graphically illustrates the relationships among the characters
  • A section on the life and background of Tim O'Brien
  • A review section that tests your knowledge
  • A Resource Center full of books, articles, films, and Internet sites

Classic literature or modern modern-day treasure — you'll understand it all with expert information and insight from CliffsNotes study guides.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great study aid 20 février 2002
Par Rachel Blumenfeld - Publié sur
Cliff's notes once again delivers as a fantastic study aid. By no means should you use this as a replacement for the book. O'Brien has emerged as one of the greatest modern writers on the subject of war, and it would be a pity to overlook his writing. But if you are looking for help to write a paper on the topic, or just curious to discover more about the underlying meaning of the novel, don't hesitate to buy Cliff's Notes.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A "must have" resource to fully enjoy the novel 9 mars 2013
Par Kenneth Petty - Publié sur

The "Cliff Notes" is no replacement for reading the real thing, but this text adds so much added material about the author and the stories in the text and history for the time period that anyone younger than 40 years of age can really-really benefit from in an affordable and easily read format. I purchased the Kindle version and read it after I had already read the novel. I found it opened up many new ideas and insights that actually enhanced my already high regard for the novel. I reread the novel as I read this text and discovered some new "vistas" of insight I missed in my initial reading. I definitely recommend it be purchased and read with the novel.
1.0 étoiles sur 5 Just awful! 12 février 2014

I read the novel & wanted to review notes for study purposes. I am shocked these made it into Cliffs Notes, that is how poorly written I find this to be, and there are errors, such as referencing Johnny Cross instead of Jimmy Cross. I also believe this is missing obvious references in favor of obscure, complicated ones. Author has managed to write in circles, with no thought to clarity or to actually making a clear point. I have not been able to slog through this. Fortunately, the book was much easier to enjoy and to read.
Skip this Cliffs Notes. Not only is it poorly written but it misses the point entirely. NOT HELPFUL, quite the opposite.

Liked the author's style of writing. The content was a difficult read but it is a story needs to be told. Impactful and disturbing.

The cliff notes really helped me to unravel the stories of Tim O'Brien's masterful work.
Without them I fear I would have been in the dark about many of the stories. It's great to hear the author's own words in the notes. It gave me a vicarious glimpse into the minds of soldiers and how and what they carried was so much more than tangible things. Stories - or real life, it doesn't matter. It was a very powerful book.
