An inspiring story. There's a LOT of description about weapons and war in general that I personally had difficulty getting through just because I'm not "into" all that but he was truly an American hero.
As 6 year non combat Marine, my military experience is very different from Chris Kyle's. His is the one I wish I'd had. If only if joined back in the early 2000's...
This book makes me feel proud to be an American. I also recommend this book to anyone who doesn't understand what the men and women of our armed services go through. This is to me a WOW!! book.
Story seemed to get a little redundant at the end seemef like it was the same combat fighting over and over again. He has an amazing story to tell
American Sniper - A must read because everyone should know what these warriors have done for our country and us. The story is interesting interesting and compelling. At times the performance seems a bit "hokey", with accents, emotional narrative, such as crying, etc. For a dramatic production, these things would be fine, but for an historical, & biographical non-fiction, it just doesn't feel right. Nevertheless this is a MUST read. Enjoy!
This was a very good story. It's really surprising all the things that this man went through. It is in his perspective and you can really understand why he does the things. The narrator's accent really didn't bother me like it did others. I'm from Texas, so maybe i'm just used to heavy southern accents. The story doesn't really have an arc, its more of a collection of stories.
This book enlightened my knowledge on war and those that fight for our country. This book is on my top 10 list now. I am more proud than I have ever been to be an American.
I thought this was a great book. I'm so glad I read it before seeing the movie. The narrator was very nice to listen to.
