It was excellent to listen to. One moment you're laughing, the next you're hanging on to every word of a dangerous insertion and then the darkness of Nick's experience appear.

  • Things I'll Never Forget

Things I’ll Never Forget is the story of a young high school graduate in 1965 who faces being drafted into the Army or volunteering for the Marine Corps. These are his memories of funny times, disgusting times and deadly times. The author kept a journal for an entire year; therefore many of the dates, times and places are accurate. The rest is based on memories that are forever tattooed on his brain. This is not a pro-war book, nor is it anti-war. It is the true story of what the Marine Corps was like in the late 1960’s.

Very well written and moving. You want to listen as long as possible while sometimes having to stop and think about what you just heard.

Good listen, nothing funnier than the narrator voicing Tarkax. Can't wait for the next book.
