I purchased this book based on ratings - I was not familiar with the true story. The account of what transpired with his Seal team in 2005 is riveting ... And it is very emotional. I didn't expect to shed tears listening to an Audible book! The bravery of our American troops + the Afghans who risked their lives to save him is just incredible. Thank God for our our Military.
Being a book based on the military you can expect a lot of dialogue that is written in all caps... The narrator reads ALL shouted words in a breathy, annoying voice. Couldn't stand it.
Marcus Luttrell's story was written incredibly well! I'm so glad I used my monthly credit for it. The narrator was top-notch, he portrayed Marcus well. I felt as if Marcus was telling me his story. I considered it an honor to hear about the brave SEAL's heroic story. Wow!
Thanks you Marcus for writing this book and for your service! You are one bad ass dude and we are grateful for you and your team's service to help protect our country. We need more men like you!!!
I'm glad that I didn't heed any of the bad reviews. Great book! There are a lot of complaints about the narration. It takes a bit to get used to his style but the story completely distracts you from the narration issues.
The story is incredible. I found the narrator very hard to listen to. Would pay a large premium on the book if Marcus Luttrell narrated his story. I can ultimately understand why that might be difficult for Marcus to do.
