The Things They Carried

Too busy to read? No problem. Just drop this newly released audiocassette into the player and let someone else do the reading for you. You don't even have to take your hands off the steering wheel to turn the pages.

Tim O'Brien's struggle to exorcise the demons of his tour of duty in Vietnam, The Things They Carried, makes for appropriately horrific listening. Anthony Heald reads this vivid, intimate account of war with searing emotion. B+
