The story is well documented, but there is nothing like the first-person account by Chris Kyle. Despite all of the controversy, this is one of my favorite books to date. You will not be disappointed.
Although interesting to hear about SEAL tactics, I couldn't stop thinking that they were there killing "bad" and "evil" people under false pretenses of Iraq having WMDs.
So, the "uber patriotism" was exhausting to listen to.
The story gives light to what it's really like in war, VN was no different and as he said politicians have no clue and will always lose the war.
Love to both read and listen to books... Happy Reading!!
Yes. My husband and I listened to this together. We both enjoyed it equally. If you are planning a rode trip with a friend/spouse, etc., this was a great listen. Chris Kyle tells his story from the beginning.
I loved how Chris's and his wife's POVs were placed. When a situation was happening and I was thinking "I wonder how his wife is feeling about that" we would get her POV.
John Pruden overall did a good job. He sounds a lot older than the age that Chris Kyle was when he wrote this. Also, John Pruden's voice sounded so rushed when he did Taya's POV. I think he did it so that there would be a different tone to his voice when he did Taya's but it just came across as rushed.
I really liked hearing Chris Kyle story in his own words. The narration was okay. Sometimes the Texas accent felt a little forced and narrator's interpretation of Taya was ridiculous.
However the book itself was fantastic. Whether you are for or against the war you cannot deny the dedication of this man or the soldiers who served with him.
