What an incredible book. This is my first introduction to Mr. Brian Scutt's work and I am very impressed. What a heartbreaking story. I didn't know who to feel sorry for the most. The tragedy of PTSD is real for so many veterans and Mr. Scutt's Korean Road brings the true
brutality of PTSD to the forefront. The toll it takes on an entire family and those around them is tragic. I listened to Korean Road 4 times already and will listen many more times. This is a book that needs to be read, this is a book that needs to be heard, this is a book that needs to live in our minds well after we have listened to the last chapter. I would love to see a sequel to Korean Road. And it goes without saying, but I'll say it anyway, S. W. Salzman gives another 5 star performance and brings a heartbreaking voice to an already powerful book. To say I loved this book is an understatement.

Brian Scutt's Korean Road tells the story of 'Dickie' a Korean veteran who never really left the war and brought it home to his family, to painful and horrific effect.
The story mixes three time periods - the Korean War, the initial years after the war, and decades later once Dickie's kids are grown - to tell a harsh, compelling story of PTSD and the impact on families. How there can be generational damage done. The story is, at times, brutal and saddening, but also insightful.
S. W. Salzman does good work with the narration. He is well paced, clear and he provides voices and accents for all the characters. A solid performance.
