by | Read by Tom Stechschulte

Fiction • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1973

This engaging story of a journalist named John Converse, who travels to Vietnam in search of a big-time story replete with action and adventure, is reminiscent of the spirit of Joseph Conrad, whom author Robert Stone quotes at the onset of the novel. Narrator Tom Stechschulte offers a firm reading that relates the novel's events in a realistic and entertaining manner. He portrays Converse as a terse, hard-nosed character who still manages to be likable. Stechschulte's delivery is remarkably solid throughout. His characters' voices adjust accordingly as they journey through the plot. A gripping performance, to say the least. L.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2008]
