This book picks up where Marcus left off in Lone Servivor. Service gives more detail into certain aspects of his experiences during and after Operation Red Wing and details his return to the teams. One would expect somebody who had gone through what he did to leave the teams and try get on with his life, but not this guy. A true example of selfless sacrifice.
yes because of the character voices
it completed the LONE SURVIVORS Story
his accents with his characters is great
If not at the top, then very close.
It brings to life what our soldiers endure. There is no propaganda, just the simple truth told by an amazing American Hero.
I enjoyed this book almost more than the first one. The story doesn't flow quite like lone survivor but the contents are very heartfelt and moving. I have always felt gratitude for our service men and the work they do but this story really takes you into their world and leaves you speechless with emotion for the sacrifices they make. YOU WILL NOT regret this read.
Honest Inspiring Thought-Provoking
The brutal honesty
The humor and the severity; you can hear the crack in his voice at a heroic or emotional times in the book
When Marcus wanted to kill the people that abused and killed his Yellow Labrador Retriever. He chased them across three counties into the cops but had to let the law do its part.
These are great stories of American Heroes told by a true American Hero.
I love the descriptive nature of the writing. The action and emotions translate well in this book.
Avid reader/listener of romance, action, thrillers, and spy novels.
I didn't read the print version. Honestly, I don't want to. The audio is amazing.
Seal Team Six, Lions of Kandahar, No Easy Day. They're all stories about what has happened in the many wars that have happened since the towers fell.
My favorite scene has to be when the guys "liberate" Morgan from the hospital. It's typical guys cracking on each other, even though they're one side step close to the grave and they don't even care. Their brother's down and they're going to get him better. The way they take care of him cracks me up.
This one didn't make me cry, like some of the other ones have. It had a lot of humor in it, that you'd expect from soldiers. All joking aside, this was a good one and well written. Not only that, it was well narrated. To all soldiers out there, thank you for your service.
Filled in some gaps from Lone survivor. Well written and narrated.
Bringing "Gularb" to the US
When the thugs killed Marcus's lab.
I bought this after devouring other first hand SEAL stories on Audible. Luttrell is a hero and he should work with an author and publisher to tell his actual story. I would totally buy that story. This story is a steaming pile of platitudes that happened to have his name on the cover. If an actual SEAL had much to do with writing it, then I'm Abraham Lincoln.
It sounds like writing process went like this:
1- Marcus gave his story to a writer
2- The writer had all the good content redacted by the Navy
3- The writer filled in the blacked out content with pages and pages of platitudes about valor.
On 3- why use one phrase like "bad ass" when you can drone on for 5 minutes and say nothing at all? Seriously this story reads like it was written by a hack who was in a hurry to fill a lot of pages with flowery descriptions.
So many words, so little story. It reads like a third rate recruiting poster, except instead of joining the Navy, you'll fall asleep.
no- I'm glad I listened to other SEAL stories before buying this- or I would have been turned off by the genre
Listen to some of the other books in this genre. I found them to be very enjoyable.
I would recommend this book over and over again. It is a great book. I have the other book by Marcus Luttrell and that was also a great read. Anyone who has ever served this country or ever been in combat would appreciate this book. A TRULY GREAT BOOK.
