    Story
    (6620)

    Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    Amazon Customer says: "A great book"
    "Seems like the book is lacking a few chapters."

    Great story, with a rather strange end. It seems like Nora Roberts was in a rush to finish the book.

    Story
    (178)

    In the fall of 2009, Taliban insurgents ambushed a patrol of Afghan soldiers and Marine advisors in a mountain village called Ganjigal. Firing from entrenched positions, the enemy was positioned to wipe out 100 men who were pinned down and were repeatedly refused artillery support. Ordered to remain behind with the vehicles, 21 year-old Marine corporal Dakota Meyer disobeyed orders and attacked to rescue his comrades.

    Joseph says: "War! What is it good for?"
    "I admire Dakota Meyer, but not this book."

    What would have made Into the Fire: A Firsthand Account of the Most Extraordinary Battle in the Afghan War better?

    The first third of this book was rather boring. The middle part was best and I guess I missed to download the last part.


    Has Into the Fire: A Firsthand Account of the Most Extraordinary Battle in the Afghan War turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not at all, but I will avoid Bing West.


    Any additional comments?

    The story ended when It became intreresting.

    Story
    (3009)

    From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more than 150 of Kyles kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him al-Shaitan ("the devil") and placed a bounty on his head.

    T. Edwards says: "Tremendously Enlightening, could not put it down"
    "A rather"

    If you could sum up American Sniper in three words, what would they be?

    Call of Duty


    What other book might you compare American Sniper to and why?

    As an European I found this story fascinating. A much more interesting story than that of Dakota Meyer, "Into the Fire".
