Stephen Crane's classic novel about a young man's first battle in the Civil War.
A powerful version of a classic

We have all read this classic tale, so I was concerned of how an audio adaptation would work...However, I must admit that I enjoyed this story in a way that I never expected. Some fine performances round out this program. Take a chance, you will be pleased.
A POWERHOUSE PROGRAM

The Colonial Radio shows usually have fantastic music scores. This production has none! The only music heard are trumpet calls and drums and fifes. The result is a stark and hard hitting drama that pulled me right in and made me feel like i was in the action.
A true to the spirit interpretation of a classic

Many consider this book to be THE masterpiece of all war novels. I do not know if I agree with that, but I do agree that it is a very powerful work. This radio drama version is very true to the original book, and conveys all the stark messages the author originally intended. It is very well done.

I did not purchase the full version audio. Thank goodness. Just the sample drove me nutts! Way too much theater dramatics stuffed into what should be a an enjoyable listening experience. No introduction, just a horrid muffling of background noise that began. It led me to concentrate on what it could be rather than the quick rambling words of the actor saying his lines. Which I could not make out because he spoke to fast, even if he were supposed to be excited, it sounded as if he were slobbering on himself and breathing too hard. Ugh! Frustrating and lacking clarity. I don't recommend this one to anyone.! Dissapointed in CA
Well done audio

I am not one to write reviews, however I feel I must take issue with someone who posts a review based on listening to a short sound bite. Come on dude, get real and listen to an ENTIRE program before tossing in you two bits. I have listened to this ENTIRE program and can vouch that it is well acted, and a great interpretation of an American classic. The sound is superb (maybe you should trade in those $3 speakers for an adult pair), and you will feel as if you truly are in the middle of the action (very eerie). If you are a fan of S. Crane’s classic civil war story, you will enjoy this download.

I too don't normally write reviews, however, I must also take exception to DLP's review of The Red Badge of Courage. I've really enjoyed it and recommend it, it’s a fully performed presentation of Stephen Crane's Civil War book. It's not a "book on tape", but really I think that makes it all the better. Also, I don't see how anyone can really comment on it based on a little two minute preview, when it’s almost two hours long. Just my opinion.

Have you always loved reading but sometimes find it hard to find the time? Theres nothing quite like curling up with a good book but many of us cant do that as much as wed like. We sacrifice this special time because we have so many other things to do each day. Its a common problem and its the reason why people on average are not reading as much as they once did. Audio books bring the story to life just as the storytellers of the past did. They allow you to experience the book in a whole new way; in the way the writer felt and heard it in their head. You can feel the emotion when you allow audio books to let the story come to life.
