I don't really see the point in writing this as a
book. I'll watch the movie and hope that the story is more coherent on the screen.
Why don't we just hire serial killers and tell them it is for god a country?
Never anything like this. It makes me want to puke.
NO NO NO NEVER.
Please remove this from your offers. I would not want my children to ever read this. I would prefer for them to read porn.
I can understand why this book is popular: Chris Kyle lived a life out of a video game. I appreciate that we have soldiers of this caliber, but I'm left with the feeling that his priorities and pride are misplaced. He lauds his killing as righteous, but even in the name of war, killing another human is a tragedy of circumstance that one should not enjoy. The movie is more satisfying in that it weaves a story that deals with the tension of being a solider. Get the movie.
arrogant asshole gun nuts
this is the story of a self-absorbed gun nut who does not deserve recent accolades
Chris Kyle is a one dimensional man with myopic views that are simplistic, racist and hawkish. Even during a time of war when it might be necessary to kill in self-defense, one would think there would be some reflection on the fact that you've taken human lives. For Chris Kyle, it was easy, as he said, they all deserved it.
Failed expectations. Quite a frustrating listen actually, Hoped this story might have been a bit more balanced. Great story for the wildly patriotic Christians in the crowd. Amazing anyone this involved with a conflict can see the world through a one sided mirror. Oh well, not much to learn as a take away from this one. The narrator is good. The Texas twang might wear on you after a while. Not the best use of your listening time for sure.
whistle while you work, or listen to books
A moderately good story. Some aspects seem exaggerated, not the sniper stuff. Although an autobiography it seems he wanted it to be more of a heroes journey. It's fine.
I was glad to see that the incident involving a notable seal was removed. I am sure losing the lawsuit for libel had something to do with it.
Knowing that he was fine with printing outright lies makes me take everything he says with a grain of salt. It's a story. Not a history.
