Listened to this after seeing the movie. Both were terrific. I feel I know the story much better after hearing the book and the content here departs from the film quite a bit. Hollywood took some license with the story but maybe that's to be expected. Such a tragedy to not have this man with us anymore.
This book reminded me of why I'm a Navy Sailor. I was recommended this book so many times and I'm so glad I finally put in the time to listen! Great narrator!
I enjoy all different types of books. Mostly really good fiction from the likes of Stephen King and Dean Koontz.
I was very happy with the narration. The content of the book was fantastic. Just a great read.
As A Marine Veteran that has deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan, this has to be the best depiction of the realities of what occurred over there. Awesome to hear this point of view. Even better the fact that an enlisted man told the story. All too often books are written by the men and women that are high on the chain of command, while they have to endure their fair share of battles, the enlisted man's point of view is always welcome.
