I love just a few things... Family, Drumming, Baseball, and Intellect.
The is a story of a SEAL. Why he became a SEAL and what he has done as a SEAL. Anyone who has served in the U. S. Military will be very familiar with the tone of the narration and feel the sincerity in LT's tone. Great book to get a tremendous insight into the long elusive and mysterious world. Bravo.
This book brought back a lot of really good memories. I recommend it for anyone thinking of joining the military, anyone currently serving in the military and anyone that has been in the military
Very interesting perspective from the officer in command of one seal company. Where the realities of war and politics meet in a truely interesting equasion. I enjoyed listening to every detail in admiration of these warfighters and the sacrifices they make for our freedom as Americans. Respect and Honor!. Airborne! Cory T.
Rorke is very articulate and well read. He has an agenda and he is not shy about it. I don't agree with all his opinions, but you know what they say about opinions.
The production was mediocre. There were at least five instances where a sentence was repeated unintentionally.
All in it was quite an enjoyable listen would recommend. Also fire the editor.
One of the things I liked most was that the book was read by the author. There's just something about knowing/relating the experience to the man behind the voice.
This book has planted the seed and the desire to read more war/military novels.
First, let me say I'm very glad to read your story and to get to know you as a patriot. I myself was in the Navy and early 70s. I looked into the Navy SEALs myself, I realized I could not make the cut. All I can say is thank God for the SEAL teams!!! I kept hoping for some, "THIS IS NO SHIT" sea stories! The few that were there, we're not enough. Every member of the Navy has earned the right to tell their sea stories. The differences, is your sea stores will be way cooler than ours. Please write another book. This time put in some sea stories, that will hold our attention!
This was a no nonsense view inside the mind and motivations of a Navy Seal. I enjoyed the fact that there was no sensationalized writing. Great writing !
The story was just fine. The narration left for much to be desired. I understand that the author is a do it yourself type of guy but he is far too monotone to convey a story like this even if it is his own. The listeners have to be moved--I wasn't. I was very disappointed that the recording was this poorly done. There were edits that should have been removed that were left in! The story itself was decent. If you have the money to spare I'd just buy the physical book.
Inspirational, heartbreaking, humorous, and moving, Rorke Denver delivers a message our nation is in such dire need of.
His craft as a writer clearly reflects his identity as a warrior and Seal instructor. His rhythm is clear, direct, and unfiltered. This is where his powers lie. His voice and tone as a writer allow his story, as well as all Seals' stories, to resonate directly to the reader.
Our current generations and the youth of our nation need to understand the truths found in this book: pride in our nation, true integrity, the cost of our freedom, the fact that true evil does exist in our world and that this evil must be hunted and killed by men capable and willing, our responsibility to the world, and simply, what it means to be a man.
