The most memorable thing about this book for me, was that the author have a run down of every chapter porous to the narrator reading it. Basically he told you what he was about to tell you. That I found to be odd and pulled me it of the story. The last 3 or 4 chapters could have been shipped as they had nothing to do with the book and part of it was the author reading of acknowledgments.
They seemed real to life. I understand they are real Brandon just did a good job of authoring them.
The discussion about memory and there are many more
The ending about the red circle and what it really meant.
This is an amazing book, full of heart felt stories and realizations.
There were minor mistakes mainly dealing with acronyms, which outside of the military community are hard to get right, so they were more funny than anything else.
I read Brandon Webb's 2nd book (I'm blanking on the name but it was about heroes who have passed) first and loved it. I'm looking forward to anything else he publishes and would love to spend a day on the range with the guy.
I thought I might be in trouble when in the first minutes an entire sentence was repeated...an obvious production error.
Sure enough, I tried but couldn't enjoy the way the narrator read the story. Seemed rushed without the slight pauses between sentences that helps make it a story rather than an attempt to get through the script. I also didn't like the narrator's voice. Really seemed like a low-budget production.
The quality of the sound was poor in this production. My speakers were struggling to produce clear sound at relatively low volumes...turning up the volume resulted in disturbingly poor quality.
I also found it strange that the author provides commentary at the start and prior to each chapter...not really providing much added value to the written book. Made for an incoherent listening experience.
Don't get me wrong...I have the highest appreciation for what the author did in serving our country and what he went through...but the way this audiobook was produced prevented me from enjoying his story.
My only other experience so far has been Unbroken, so maybe I'm spoiled. That was a superbly produced and narrated story that was tough to stop listening to.
