I couldn't put it down. To be honest, I first got the book because I adore Adam Drivers' voice and the content sounded interesting enough. But I was humbled and amazed by the content, the honesty and humanity of the book touched me in ways I didn't expect or know I needed. I am very grateful for this book.

Try not to Cry, I Dare You.
Would you listen to The Theater of War again? Why?
I definitely will. It's a well written, emotional book that caters to my interests in classics and psychology. It's very interesting, emotional, and thought-provoking.
What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?
Well, my favorite section of the book was the one about veterans. It's the first audience Doerries brought Theater of War to, and he expands upon it the most. It was really enlightening, and it also shed a lot of light on my parent's own marriage, ironically.
Which scene was your favorite?
With Adam Driver narrating, any scene where he gets to really use his talent is a good one. While most of the book is a narrative of the reasons behind, actions, and effects of Theater of War, there are a plethora of Doerrie's intriguing translations that Driver expertly performs.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Oh, I listened to this at work one day - start to near finish - and it was a huge mistake. I had to stop actively several times to stop myself from crying. It's a really emotional book, and hearing about what the people Doerries worked with was very heavy. As was the connection I felt to some of them.
