THE FOREVER WAR reads like a reporter's notebook as author Dexter Filkins gives listeners the small, intimate stories of the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Perhaps because of its human scale, the graphic sections depicting the impact of war on real people can be difficult to listen to. The overall series of vignettes is perfect for audiobook presentation as the listener can dip in and out at will. Robertson Dean narrates in a clear, objective manner that mirrors the author’s clear, objective reporting. Dean’s straightforward delivery is particularly effective during the raw battle scenes, for which drama is unnecessary. Filkins's book is well worth a listen.
