I would because it very patriotic and surprisingly light. It goes in depth to what SEALs lives are like. It does get preachy and a little to far "right" at the end, but overall very interesting.
His stories of the tours in Iraq.
The view into combat was clear. The words used to describe the scenes didn't *need* to use so much vulgar language to get the points across.
True to author
I was really interested in this book when I saw it but I author has begun to lime his loegend a little too much. He keeps saying how humble he is then goes into an ego driven lecture about his feats. It was a little too much.
I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. If you ant to read about SEALS, then listen to LONE SURVIVOR.
I got bored with it and shelfed it twice before finishing it.
The audiobook is read by a guy with a Texas drawl and does a pretty good job with the voice acting. No way reading the print is this enjoyable.
If you want to hear war stories comparable to Call of Duty, this book delivers. The action in this has the potential to be great scenes in movies and video games.
This book is just awesome and frankly its great to hear from someone that genuinely loves and fought for their country. This guy is a hero and his story should be heard.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to read about real people. It is a story about a man, and what it is like to be a sniper, before and after service, not about killings or espionage.
I enjoy good sci-fi and fantasy books. I also enjoy listening to Mysteries and Business marketing.
I enjoyed this book. I never realized how much more pure warfare there was in Iraq. Will the insurgency ever stop?
Probably one of my favorite audio books
Non-fiction of something compared to Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp
Author was so casual about the events at points. Author was always concerned about our soldiers.
Informative with a good story
Didn't read the print version, don't need to, will just keep listening to the Audio version.
Chris, such a focused brave guy.
We were on the edge of our seats every time there was action, which was alot
My husband tried for the SEALS in the Vietnam era but didn't make it because of the 7mile swim. He ended up on Swift Boats taking the SEALS in deep and bringing them out. He new may of them and really related to the story.
Just wanted to thank Chris Kyle for his service. Without people like him in the military, the United States wouldn't be what it is.
It is one of my favorites. I'll listen to it again. In fact, I finished it and then started over and listened again.
It's a fast paced autobiography of a guy whose job is killing the people who want to kill us. What can I compare it to? James Bond? Pretty much: Except Ian Fleming was working with a fictional character. Our American sniper is patriotic like Bond, too. One thing we missed with James Bond was how he grew up. Chris Kyle makes his youth, his coming of age, and his family very real.
Oh, John Pruden is wonderful! He nails the regional Texas accent. I checked, and, yes, he is acting. Absolutely brings the autobiography alive. As a listener, you just know that a guy who talks like that can sure play Texas high school football, ride a rodeo bull, and shoot the bad guys. Pruden also transitions beautifully to voice the wife.
Sure. But, with non-stop, real action, one needs to pace themselves. There are a few short breaks: the pace changes when Kyle has his wife tell her side of the story.
I guess this is a book for all ages and both sexes. My grandsons recommended it to me.
I want to feel good when I complete a story & am a little harsh on depressing ones. There are a few sad ones that I love but not many.
This was a gritty story about being a U.S. Navy Seal Sniper. Very well done. Speaker took a little getting use to but I settled in. Real amazing story from an amazing U.S. Soldier.
