Tim O'Brien's hauntingly beautiful novel about the Vietnam War depicts the cyclical nature of violence, the aftermath of war, and the long-term cost of failing to follow your own convictions when they differ from societal expectations. The novel presents as if it is a memoir and has a non-linear structure that mirrors the chaos of warfare. It is the PERFECT novel for teaching students about how the structure of a work can reflect its content. While the work is engaging and high interest, it lends itself well to teaching analysis of rhetorical strategies, a major component of the Advanced Placement Language and Composition curriculum. More importantly, it is a beautiful story about the importance of following your personal convictions.
