Red Badge of Courage
I see why this is a classic. Be sure to get the narrator, William Dufris. He is less dry than the other. A GOOD LISTEN.

Narrator great. Book of historical interest.
First, I should say that the narrator did a great job in portraying several characters in a totally believable way.
The novel concerns a young man who enlists in the Civil War and fights in several battles. The perspective of the story is that of how the young man felt and reacted to his situations and how he felt about his reactions. Stephen Crane apparently bridges a gap between an older style of writing where the story was told, to a more modern style where the perspective is on the inner thoughts and feelings of the protagonist. Thus the book will be of interest to civil war buffs and those interested in tracing the progression of American Literature.

Great performance, decent story
I had to read this book for my US history class. The audio book is immensely more enjoyable than actually reading it.
