Best Recommended Reading IV: FAIL!
This week's Recommended Read is "The Things They Carried" by Tim O'Brien. It rounds out the perfect little trifecta of Araby-stories from my English 251 experience BUT I couldn't find a copy of it anywhere on the internet. Weird. I found links to websites that would help you write a paper on it and excerpts from it posted on Christian inspirational message boards (hrrm?) but the short story, in its entirety, that I could not find on the internet.
Great job, internet. I thought you were supposed to have everything. Guess not. Superhighway downgraded to thoroughfare as far as I'm concerned.
Now I wait for a hotshot Anonymous to show up in the comments saying "Drrr, obviously you don't know how to use a search engine because [a href="link"]here's[/a] your story!
Come on Anonymous, make me look dumb. I want to read this story again.
