It's one of my favorites, such an incredible story.
The sounds that pulled you into the story, it really gave you the feeling that you were there standing there watching the whole thing go down.
All of them, he did a fantastic job voicing each one. Each had depth and breadth in my mind. He is a very gifted narrarator.
Quite honestly that main character, the descriptiveness of his personal voice really pulled you into the story and held you there.
This is an incredible story of War from a soldier's eyes. Sometimes we forget that soldiers have feelings and can be afraid in battle just like we would be. The descriptiveness of this story pulls you in and doesn't let you go. You find yourself rooting for them, yelling at them, laughing and crying with them. It really lets you "see" the story in the soldier's eyes. The narrator does a great job of giving each character a certain depth that sets them apart from the others. This is a unique and wonderful book with a gripping and riveting story line that is truly amazing.

The Sounds of War is a deep dive, no holds barred
What impressed me the most was that someone who 'went over there' thought it important enough to remember, take home, and share with the rest of us these very subtle experiences. Having served in the military myself, I have a deep personal connection to these little things. Some I have never forgotten, others, I only recalled while listening to Sounds of War audio book. Personally, this book made me realize that many of these colorful 'things' from my own experiences had been lost to my memory because I had intentionally forgotten as much as possible. For the first time in 25 years, those colorful
little 'things' are coming to the foreground of my memory and I find they are all meaningful. For me, Sounds of War was like a painting done by a different kind of brush!
The Sounds of War is a novel with a purpose. It intends to bring the day-to-day, lowest level details about one soldier's wartime experiences home to the reader by stimulating the very five senses thru which we all experience this world.
With regard to character development, scene setting, scene transitioning, and overall story development, Thomas Ferreolus has organized and narrated a well thought out story that was easy flowing. Characters come and go...and if you have ever served in the military, you will remember that the friends you make often come and go in one patrol. People you get to know in those long mundane hours where you have nothing to do but talk endlessly and in such short time, they move on and you never see them again.
I'd recommend this book to anybody who wants to come as close to a soldier's wartime day-to-day as can possibly be achieved. An experience as told by no other book and seen in no other movie.
I recommend Sounds of War with 5 Stars.
