It was a real learning experience to hear what some of our military do.
Lone Survivor. Another fascinating tale of the experiences of the military.
I don't write book reports.
I passed on this book when it first debut. After I saw the movie, my interest at reading Chris Kyle's life as a Navy Seal struck me again. The only reason why I wanted to read "American Sniper" is because of the movie. I wanted to know more how Chris Kyle died.
I should had skipped to the last chapter and did my homework. Chris died after publishing his book. So, I got this book for nothing!
I found his story to be boring and almost gave up on this book. I have up most respect for our military ans support the troops in every way, but reading about modern war combat doesn't interest me at all. Unlike the movie, the book didn't hold my interest.
I really should stop reading these kind of war autobiography genre. I have a tendency of giving most of them a bad review because I cannot stand reading about modern war from a soldier. Their perspective is very different from the leaders that is making the call.
I enjoy more of the strategy of war than gun shots.
This is a story that Americans should hear. It's too bad that I could not listen to it around my family because of the language that even sailors would not use around their own families.
This book was written in a way that anyone could appreciate. The real life of some one stronger than most telling his story in a way that brings humor, heart felt pain, triumph, and loss all in one great book.
