    Hailed by The New York Times as "a marvel of storytelling", The Things They Carried’s portrayal of the boots-on-the-ground experience of soldiers in the Vietnam War is a landmark in war writing. Now, three-time Emmy Award winner-Bryan Cranston, star of the hit TV series Breaking Bad, delivers an electrifying performance that walks the book’s hallucinatory line between reality and fiction and highlights the emotional power of the spoken word.

    Any additional comments?

    The book includes a stray puppy being tied to a grenade and blown-up, and a baby water buffalo shot more than ten times not to kill it but to see it hurt. I wish someone would have warned me what I'd find in this book. Save your money, unless you enjoy reading about items like this. I stopped listening, and deleted immediately.

    Ken Follett's World Without End was a global phenomenon, a work of grand historical sweep beloved by millions of readers and acclaimed by critics. Fall of Giants is his magnificent new historical epic. The first novel in The Century Trilogy, it follows the fates of five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh - as they move through the world-shaking dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women's suffrage.

    If you could sum up Fall of Giants in three words, what would they be?

    Fast, excellent performance, and good story,


    Any additional comments?

    This book is why it is sometimes better to listen to a book rather than read one. I found that this book kept my attention as I drove to and from work. Often times, I had wished my trip was longer so I could continue to listen. I wish it had never ended.
