    All the stories in this collection from Stephen King are related to the Vietnam War. King fans will recognize echoes of The Dark Tower series in the collection's first story, "Low Men in Yellow Coats." As the characters develop over the next four stories, King's version of the Vietnam War becomes one of his most frightening tales ever.

    Steve says: "Touching, Funny - Amazingly well written and read."
    "Some technical production issues but a good story."
    Overall

    This book is pretty typical of other King Books like Four Seasons, or the Green Mile. So if you're a fan of those, you'll be a fan of this.
    Story-wise this book is enjoyable, and becomes even more so as the book progresses, I particularly liked the college section, from which the book derives its title.
    The only reason this book recieved four stars instead of five, is for a few technical reasons. The first section of the book is read by a voice actor whom I found to be uninteresting. Very monotone and hard to follow at times. The other distracting part in this cut: the producers of this audio book played music in between each chapter. This was extremely annoying. Often the music playing didn't even capture the tone of the book at that particular time.
    All in all, my recomendation is to give the sample a listen, before you commit to downloading it. If you're a King fan (especially a fan of his Dark Tower series) youll like the book. Just make sure first you can stand the voice of the actor reading for the first part of the book. (The middle section atleast is read by Stephen King himself)
