awesome book. a few times he repeats a sentence, its more funny than annoying, like a random easter egg here and there.
Enjoyable read for the most part, but the last few chapters could've been deleted. Forced myself to finish it the way parents force kids to finish a bad meal. Found myself rolling my eyes after the 100th time I heard how superior seals are to everyone in the world, including other branches of the military. Perhaps the Navy ought to start serving up some humble pie. It's one thing to let me come to that conclusion myself, which I may have, but it's another to just say it over and over and over again. Speaking of repeating the same thing over & over, the editing job was poor. At least half a dozen times the same sentence was repeated during narration. And it was abundantly obvious where a piecemeal voice over edit occurred. Was excited to read this, but it just left me feeling annoyed.
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!
