A fairly weak, melodramatic, and atypical US Flag waving story, but entertaining nonetheless.
The narration was pretty good, but could use some work on the cadence. The voice matched well to the type of story.
listening makes you feel like you are apart of the cast
The bravery of these men who put their liven on the line without question, knowing full well that what they do is a sacrifice for country and family freedom
yes and no.
While fascinating, a lot of description of complicated machinery, technical specifications, and performance optimization was presented in this book. It was made palatable by the narrator. A tiny smattering of the complexities of our national defense and what goes on behind the scenes is unveiled in this book. Truly interesting. I didn't get the sense of knowing and appreciating the characters, but all in all a good read (listen).
Steven Weber, from the old "Wings" sitcom, is a fantastic narrator. I will continue to seek out his narrations.
Technical jargon. He sounds excited and enthused and proud when presenting the type of information that would be hard to follow otherwise. Maybe he could help me understand Chemistry and Algebra - he's that good!!
I wept at the epilogue. I have not done that ever! Story was great, performance was perfect.
It is a great escape and provides the listener with some extremely exciting moments right down to the last detail.
Too much detail
This isn't the best book you'll ever read. It's the equivalent of a good action movie with a decent action movie story; entertaining, explosive and sometimes a little moving.
Just knowing that some of this is probably true gave the story validity.
To keep the story realistic, someone has to get injured and/or die but it never happens when you expect or to whom you expect.
Maybe not extreme but it made me think about the liberties I enjoy and why I am able to enjoy them.
For me there was too much detail about navy seals which could have blended into the story
Brotherhood, brotherhood, brotherhood
Falling on the grenade, knowing full well what he was giving up.
Even though it is fiction, it brings a perspective into the lives of those whom we take for granted every day.
It wasn't a nail biter, but I enjoyed listening when I could.
I found the dialogue to be a little campy. The action was good, the storyline was solid, but the characters were a little weak. Even heroes aren't perfect, and the main characters were presented as saints.
