If this book does not inspire change in the way you go about life you may be dead inside.Well written and the character Adam Brown is nothing short of a Hero for all humanity as a father, husband, son, hero, friend and a Christian.
If you see a BMW motorcycle cruising down the road, you can be assured I'm listening to a book from Audible!
What an incredible story about a man who turned his life around. This candid look inside Adam Brown's life shows all that choices we make are long lasting, and the consequences are felt for years. Even though he broke the cycle of drug abuse, the effects were long lasting and haunted him for the rest of his life.
Despite his difficult past, he made the effort to better himself and recognized his need to do something for the greater good. Ultimately giving his life for his team and country, Adam is a man to be looked up to and admired. God bless his family, his teammates, and the United States for his example and sacrifice.
This book was inspirational in a sense of a man, an American, and a Christian. The author sought out to tell the story not only of Adam Brown the great soldier, the father and husband, but also the drug addict. This book gives you a sense that there is hope, even when hope feels entirely diminished. This book was great, and I would suggest it to anyone with interests in this special forces, or someone seeking out direction in their religion.
Listening to Adam Brown's story made me cry, which is not easy to do. The story was exciting, touching, and thought provoking.
This book is a must read. It is an inspirational story that shows that no matter what problems we have in life, no matter how deep in the trenches of hell we may get, with the Lords help and determination we can do anything. This Hero rose up from spiritual death and became one of the most elite warriors in the world. Though he was fearless in life, he feared one thing and that was failing his Heavenly Father.
Probably toward the top. It was a compelling story and held my attention to the very end.
Well, it's about Adam Brown, but his wife seemed like a pretty awesome lady so I'll give her the nod on this one.
Great Scott. Almost anyone. Paul Michael was a classic example of over acting in this reading. He made every female in the story sound like a quite little mouse of a human and you could not ever hear what those characters were saying because he would start talking super softly. He did the same thing with all the children voices as well. Apparently in Paul Michael's world, only men have audible voices. He was a very poor choice for such a great book. I think Mike Greenberg would have been an apt choice.
I did want to, but it was prohibitively long.
The story was amazing, the characters well written into the story and the book itself was wonderful. The narrator did leave a lot to be desired and severely hampered my enjoyment of the book. At the end of the book there is a really cool interview with the author. He provides some really intriguing insights about the book. The man (?) interviewing him was just the worst though. I'm trying to be positive about it, but he was one of the most inept interviewers to which I have ever had the misfortune of listening.
The book was a real pain to purpose inspiration. For fund true purpose one must endure. If you ever question your own circumstances and trials asking "why me?" This book challenged my belief of what overcoming against all odds truly means.
I already had the book in my Kindle library, but I wanted to include the audio narration to my library. This was quite a story and a fitting tribute to the subject of it. After reading and listening to the narration. I find my trials and tribulations fairly easy to overcome in comparison to what Adam Brown (SOC) endured. I will refrain from revealing anything beyond this point and only urge readers to pick this book up: especially now as memorial day approaches. The narrator was quite good. As it is with audiobooks, you take what you are given and the narration sounded fine with male voices nonetheless it did come off as a little strange when he tried mimicing the female characters. This is a minor point and did not detract from an otherwise enjoyable book.
