My absolute favorite author to listen to as I travel around the country. If Mr. Eisler wrote a book every week, I would buy one every week. As a bonus, he is extremely entertaining as a narrator. Keep on writing and narrating, and I will keep on buying and enjoying.

The only bad thing about this latest book is that it will be awhile before we get another book from this wonderful author. Could you write one every month? I know better, but a girl can hope.

Extremely engaging; although the Vietnam war damaged and continues to damage our veterans, their families and our society, the atrocities in this book could have happened during any war or situation where 1 person or 1 group of people have too much power. I truly felt like the narrator was telling his own story. I am thoroughly impressed by this author and narrator and will look for them again.

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.
