    READ ✓ The Barracks Thief The Barracks ThiefI came very close to giving this one five stars and I may still change my mind soon Rarely has such a short novel left such a deep impression It is the story of three young men in the army training to be sent to Vietnam But it manages to address many of the ills in American society than just its war mongering I can recommend it highly Even if you read as slowly as I do you can easily finish it in a single afternoon

    READ ✓ The Barracks Thief The Barracks ThiefGood old fashioned storytelling There was nothing flashy about this but I thought the characters and settings were very vivid and I expect they'll stay with me for a long time

    READ ✓ The Barracks Thief The Barracks ThiefThe extravagant formal shifts—in setting and protagonist from first to third person even from past tense to present tense—somewhat overwhelm a book only 100 pages long and I find Wolff's intentions with some of his story's threads a bit opaue but this story of conformity and loneliness in the Vietnam War era is full of great bootcamp details and moments of horrible awareness not the least of which is the titular barracks thief's realization upon being caught that Nothing will ever be the way it could have been Whatev

    READ ✓ The Barracks Thief The Barracks ThiefI must admit it's been some time since I felt compelled to compulsively read a book to completion I finish nearly every book I begin but it often takes some mental stamina and I've been finding it difficult to enjoy many books all the way through Again this is an admission It saddens me But it provides opportunity for standouts like The Barracks Thief Its brevity I think is a factor and it seems stories with which I can spend one pleasant night are often my favorites Train Dreams Notes from Underground We Have Always Lived in the Castle The Metamorphosis At the Mountains of Madness The Mist The Great Gatsby are all favorites that I finished in one or two sittings I think the novella is the perfect length It can take enough time to get you invested without succumbing to plodding detail or numbing exposition I still love short stories and gargantuan epic or sprawling tangential nov

    READ ✓ The Barracks Thief The Barracks ThiefAnything by Wolff is worth reading Others are my favorites Night in uestion Old School but this is still very good The beginning of this started out seeming really Raymond Carver esue in a sort of flat man being men and doing man things way but with the ending Wolff takes that reflective stance that twists the story back on itself and makes you re see the story and the world

    READ ✓ The Barracks Thief The Barracks ThiefWow I finished The Barracks Thief before bed last night then couldn’t fall asleep a pretty good indicator of the uality of a work of literature It shot up near the top of My Favorite Novellas of All Time list Legends of the Fall A River Runs Through It with which it would make a nice trilogy and A Month in the Country all spring to mind At only 122 pages there was plenty of time savor Wolff’s crystalline prose and to “notice and fondle details” that even Nabokov would underline The story is one of my favorite types a remembrance years hence of some turning point It delivers a knockout punch that finds a new way to state an eternal truth “Nothing will ever be the way it could have been Whatever happens it will always be a little less”
