Publisher's Summary

His tour is over, but the war rages on for Dickie, one of the forever-haunted veterans who gave up his soul during the Forgotten War. Here is a glimpse of his story, of the battleground he can never leave. Only death can conclude his final objective: closure, and peace. Join him on his road, the Korean Road, as he battles horrors he carries and those that he meets along the way.
"Korean Road nailed the hell so many of us live with. It left me craving more - more of this tragic story, and more from this capable, engaging storyteller. I'm looking forward to seeing what this new author brings us next." - Heath Stallcup, creator of the Monster Squad series

Brutal but well written PTSD story

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was a well written and narrated story of the impacts PTSD can wreak on a person and those around them when not treated. As a veteran myself, this was a hard listen. More out of empathy, and it hitting closer to home than is comfortable, than anything else. Not all people with PTSD experience things as Dickie does in this story, but there ARE many soldiers that lose it like this and do horrible things. Many more commit suicide... Anyway, I'll get off my soap box and back to my actual review. If you want to see inside the mind of an extreme case of PTSD, you should check this out.

Fictionalized war PTSD experience...

I can't even image what some of these soldiers went through and how PTSD affected them, but Korean Road by Brian Scutt did a good job of giving me an idea. The novella spans three time periods during Dickey's life-During the war, right after the war and finally, when Dickie's kids are older. This novella is based around Dickie's experience and his own PTSD and the widespread effects that it can have on a person and in truth, others around them, hence the various time periods. It gets pretty intense at time and I just really can't imagine what it's like for anyone to go through that. If you're interested in a fictionalized war PTSD short story, then I would definitely recommend Korean Road.

S.W. Salzman did a great job with the narration. The variations between characters and his regular narrator voice really added to the listening experience. This is my first time listening to one of her narrations, but I'll definitely be looking for more of his performances. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher for an honest review.
