    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.

    What did you love best about The Things They Carried?

    I was not looking for a war story about Vietnam when I purchased this audio book. Been there done that. I was looking for more Bryan Cranston after binge watching Breaking Bad and Malcolm In The Middle. I was not disappointed. The stories told in THE THINGS THEY CARRIED are wonderful. It is the most beautifully written book about the Vietnam era that I have ever experienced...it tells the story like I remember it. Well done Mr. O'Brien and Mr. Cranston.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Things They Carried?

    The story ON THE RAINY RIVER


    What about Bryan Cranston’s performance did you like?

    His clarity and enunciation and heartfelt presentation. I could tell he did this project because he loved the book.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Things They Carried and why?

    the narrator


    Any additional comments?

    It is a book I will listen to again and again...
