This book is in the same league as All Quiet on the Western Front and even Forgotten Soldier. It was a far more coherent version of The things we carried and the prose if this book kept me glued to every word. A real classic.

Would you listen to The Sorrow of War again? Why?
This is a hard book to digest in just one hearing or reading. It is profoundly sad and it is also a complex story.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Sorrow of War?
The train ride to the front line is haunting. Many things happen to the main character and his girlfriend -- mostly all bad.
Which character – as performed by James Langton – was your favorite?
Langton does a great job of switching to a female/lighter voice that permits suspended disbelief when he portrays females and some of the younger or weaker soldiers.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
The negative impact of war is greatly underestimated.
Any additional comments?
Especially interesting for Americans to hear the North Vietnamese perspective.
