Good Form would be my favorite passage. In this very short story, Tim O’Brien is telling us how he felt like if we see him. He still blame himself even though he was in the present. In this short story I felt like I was in his position, the way he telling us and how powerful stories could be. In this short story I felt like I was in O’Brien’s position, the way he telling us and how he tell us how powerful stories could sometimes be.
And something that could be learned from this story is responsibility, how it plays a major roll, how it feels to be somewhere you never been before, WAR and all the flash back you will have after you made it alive. O’Brien writes “And now, twenty years later, I’m left with faceless responsibility and faceless grief” (O’Brien 180). Even after a long period O’Brien still thinks about the war as if he was in there.
1) Why was Tim O’Brien feeling guilty about him being responsible or being the command?
2) Why did Tim O’Brien wrote this book? Was it about love or the war?
