The Things They Carried



Can't get enough of "Breaking Bad?" I know the feeling. I can't get enough of Tim O'Brien novels. But this holiday season is going to be special. "Breaking Bad"'s own Walter White (Bryan Cranston) lends his distinct voice to O'Brien's classic Vietnam book, The Things They Carried. If you haven't read this spellbinding book, let Walter White read it to you in this audible audio edition.

The Things They Carried, as read by Bryan Cranston
