The whole background of Sammy's life and over comings, his rise above adversity is a great story of his tenacity and grace in the front line of prejudice. The reading by Burt Boyar spoils a great bio.
His army experience during WW2
His boring monologue, basically there is no emphasis of any in all his reading, it's beige while Sammy's life was technicolour.
A great movie, I'll leave others to decide on the actors.
A half decent story
Genre - what genre would you put this under?
Humphrey Bower in my opinion is the best reader I've heard in all the books I've purchased from Audible
Don't waste your money
Yes absolutely, Sean Parnell introduces all his men and you feel you know them. You get absorbed into their everyday lives and the futility of us being in Afganistan.
The funeral service at the end.
I'm not overly given to outbursts of emotion but as I was driving I had tears running down my face.
Our young men who fight as they are called by their country to do so, question our so called ally Pakistan.
Poor old USA and her allies who have gone into Afghanistan and try to help these people only to be faced with duplicitous politicians, traitors, charlatans, thieves and liars.
What a waste of our young men called to protect, I weep for the cream of our young men who serve us and are so shabbily treated by the politicians from our respective countries.
The timbre of his voice and the emotion he brought to the story - excellent
Weep for our young men who give themselves to an undeserving people.
Or, Try bringing peace to Islam - futile at best!
Literately - read it and weep.
