Comparison to Tim O'Brien?
Please do not compare this book to ANY of Tim O'Brien's books about Vietnam. First of all, O'Brien has a style of writing that urges the reader to think more deeply about the impact of war and violence on the psyche of the soldier in combat. Further, he writes in a way that invites the reader to experience vicariously the grunt's physical struggle. Read the story 'The Things They Carried' or 'How to Tell a True War Story,' both from the book The Things They Carried. Falling Through the Earth is an autobiography whose writer has not yet developed a sense of style I was not connected to this story or its characters the way I have been to O'Brien's.
