Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Craig Klein

Fiction • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Craig Klein perfectly narrates these stories of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, hitting their exact tone and pacing. The soldier’s life in a combat zone is one of boredom, military bureaucracy, violence, fear, exhilaration, and a host of other emotions. Klay, who as an adjutant in the Marines, had the perfect vantage point to see all sides of the warrior’s life, splendidly captures the experience of war. Klein’s voice is well matched to the text of each story—each told in the first person by a different observer. From the soldier returning home to the contractor with the ridiculous scheme to meet an equally ridiculous State Department goal and the chaplain who endures a crisis of faith, Klein reads each story as though he were the observer himself.
