    In The Man I Killed Tim O'Brien reacts out of fear; not fear of the man who walks by but a fear of the situation.  Afterward he is shaken by his decision and cannot stop thinking of the man and he even calls the next chapter Ambush where he describes what happened.  He conjures a scenario of the man's life-his profession and what he likes to do.  Does this help or hurt Tim's emotional state and if it's a war with enemies that can be define (ie the man who walked by) why can't Tim stop thinking about this man and is it am ambush?

    Choose one paragraph in Love, Spin or On the Rainy River and explain why you chose that one. Be specific in how it affects the reader and where it is(chapter and page!!).

    Discuss the metaphor of the word "carried."  What are the "things" and what are "things" real people carry?
