Tim O'Brien writes an outsanding novel, and gives an even better insight into how two brothers could be total strangers. While one went to fight in Vietnam, the other stayed home and made a suitable life for himself. He does an amazing job portraying the personalities of the two brothers and how their lives have affected them. One is boisterous and won't stop talking, while the other is a soft-spoken, Reserved person who seems to have no sense of adventure. It takes a badly timed road trip to some ski races, and the idea of the two to ski back home, for them to fully understand each other.
This book would be best suited for those with a sibling, either older or younger, of the same gender. Whether it be two brothers or two sisters, the message is the same, that no matter how well you might know someone, experiences in one's life changes that person into someone new. O'Brien also reminds us that no matter how much a brother or sister changes, there are still that same sibling who will wrestle with you one mnute and then be having fun the next.
