I downloaded an audio book called "The Things They Carried" by the writer, Tim O'Brien. This is a novel and auto-biography of sorts, about a young man's life prior to and during the VietNam war starting in 1968.
Normally, I would have no interest in this -- just not my cup of tea. HOWEVER, the actor Bryan Cranston, was reading it. That got me interested.
Well... this novel is just fantastic. I am loving it. Bryan Cranston reads so well and prepared so well that he even pronounces the word Bemidji correctly. (The name of a city in Minnesota).
The subject matter is very macho. Having a professional actor who plays macho roles reading the book contributes to the overall effect.
Thumbs up for Audible!
