I enjoyed Clancy's much deserved recognition to the SEALs but I felt it was too much wrapping oneself in the flag. It's one thing to be patriotic, which I believe one should be but its another to almost alwasy dismiss the other elite units in the world that are as good as the SEALs! Overall, I enjoyed the story and I tought it was well written. What I liked the least was the fact that I was expecting a Clancy-like story and that was not quite the case.
Good, finally something that comes close to reality!
Yes, each character had its own personality and they were easy to discern from one another
Almost from the first sentence therre was non stop action. Really a mans book if that is what you enjoy. Very little in the way of side stories which so many books do that have very little bearing in the subject matter. Hardily recommended.
Audiobooks allow book nerds like me to venture out in public and keep "reading."
I wanted to like this more than I did. The characters were "too perfect". I am a Navy vet and I am 100% behind our boys - but give me a real story. Great movie...but the book felt forced.
But anything Steven Weber narrates is well worth a credit!!!
No more Tom Clancy Presents books for me. Reading this book is like going out with somebody that only talks about how super they are. All the time, non-stop. Boring. Weak Plot, Every Cliche line at least 3 times a page.............
someone without actual military experience
the story was mostly fine though the characters were portrayed much differently than all of the special forces people I have known
the character dialog was not believable.
all I can say is I have known many special forces personnel. I certainly don't diminish anything at all about there actual acts of valor, however, the way the story was read and the people were portrayed was simply not in keeping with what I personally have experienced.
I am not a story writer
It was OK, I just could not really get into it.
