Everyone should know this story of incredible determination and courage. Marcus Luttrell is the definition of an American hero. While I absolutely love this story and will listen again, the narrator read it as if he were in high school reading the script of a play. Way too dramatic and cheesy. Thankfully the story itself overcomes the performance, but still wish it were read by someone else, perhaps even the author himself.
I love the story, but I felt board at times. I am a vet myself, so maybe that has something to do with it. Not a big fan of liberals, but the bashing got a little old.
Great story and I'm thankful it was told! Worth the time.
Eye opening, very emotional story everyone that lives in the USA needs to hear or read!
This is an incredible story. Well- performed and even with a southern accent. I could not stop listening. Marcus Luttrell's experience and the story of those lives lost must be remembered.
My only qualms:
Since this is a memoir of his military training and of a horrific experience, much of the language is ... Well... Colorful. Not sure why I expected anything different, but it caught me off guard.
Secondly, from time to time the narrator annunciated a little too much and it was slightly annoying. But the reviewers who commented that they needed to stop listening bc the narrator was too annoying must be easily annoyed. He did an incredible job and was very clear and conveyed the raw emotion of the story.
loved the movie and loved the book as well. makes me hate the liberal media a great deal. wished he had done something to honor the village for their kindness, but they probably wouldn't have accepted it.
Yes, very vivid and descriptive but the story moves and is far more complete than the movie
The characters mannerisms, you almost know the guys

The movie was fantastic, the book is better
