The narration really added a lot to the delivery of the story. I prefer this to the print version.
I was particularly impressed with the insights into the life of Navy SEALS and the details of their day-to-day life. The account of the killing of Osama Bin Laden was just a bonus.
He sounds like a convincing SEAL and has good inflection.
As the author states, the target audience is middle school boys. Even so, I am the mother of a middle school son and daughter. All three of us enjoyed it. It is an interesting insight into the personality of a Navy Seal. Seals are not choir boys and not what the typical mother wants her son to become, but after listening to the audiobook, I have a renewed respect and appreciation for the Seals. The language and pranks described in the book are typical of what one could expect from a Navy Seal. Not the language or pranks I want my children to emulate, but, they are wise enough to make good choices. I recommend this book. It provides some important points for young people to consider as they mature to be wise adults. It a view in to the real world.
In regard to the controversy of the potentially classified information disclosed, the author's position and motivations are very well stated. Now, can we please move on?
A riveting account of what the Seals do and the training for getting Bin Laden. What a great story.
I loved how it was not just what "I" did-it was we!
Graham made it feel like I was on the mission too.
No, I listened to it carefully the first time. I rarely listen to a book more than once.
The final story about the raid on the compound.
I have not listened to any of his performances.
Various moments where he was in tense situations. In particular when he was being shot at through the door and the rounds hit the bolt cutters on his back.
Thank you for your service!
Powerful, Heroic, American
Trying to understand the simplicity and yet complexity behind the killing of Geronimo.
The "invasion" of Pakistan.....
A story that is uniquely and truly American
I loved this book! I wasn't sure I was going to like it because I am not usually into the violent, shoot-'em-up, action novels that play out like your typical "guy movie". However, I was fascinated by what I had heard in the media about the mission that killed Bin Ladin. The book was much more interesting than I had imagined. In fact, I couldn't stop listening. The author sets up the final mission by first recounting various other missions and training that lead up to the final mission which was critical information to really understand what they were up against, the training that prepared them for the mission and how they got there. It was fascinating to see what the life of a navy seal is like. It made me really appreciate the daily sacrifices that these men make for our country. The narrator did an excellent job. He made me feel like he was the navy seal giving me his first-hand account. I would highly recommend this book.
The story drew you into the actual event. As I listened to the gear this warrior was wearing I could picture it. The detail was great. As he is going up the stair well, gun drawn, my heart was beating fast and my palms were sweating. OUTSTANDING!
No Easy Day!! Perfect Title. Perfect Tag Line.
Excellent book. I raved so much about it that two of my friends and my brother got a subscription to audible.com just for this book.
The narration was dynamic.
He didn't just read the story... he brought you into the story with his nonverbals.
I've recommended this book to all of my friends
Mark Owen's life story
He has an excellent voice for narration.
The author should be commended for presenting this book to the public.
If you enjoy military novels, this is a keeper. I can't address the secrecy issue the military has with this book, as I am not qualified. However, I found it much like a Tom Clancy novel in technical detail.
with purchasing it on audio, the action keep rolling.
Perhaps, but since the best time I have to listen to audio, is on my commute to work, the time breaks (about 30-45 min) was just right for me.
