Lone Survivor is a fascinating story about a little-known arena of
the war on terrorism. As Americans,we should all be better-informed
about such things, if only to be more supportive to the soldiers who
are willing to make such horrendous sacrifices so that we can continue to enjoy our freedoms.
Kevin T. Collins' narration was absolutely superb, and exactly the voice one
would have expected Luttrell to have. Let's hope we hear many more
books read by him.
That said, I was sorry that this book was abridged, as the complexity and length
of the hillside battle would have been better-appreciated in more
detail. Although the author's decision to release the goatherds will
undoubtedly haunt him for the rest of his life, it's a shame
that he reduced a generous and righteous act to a simplistic rant
about liberals(even though I don't disagree). The bravery and
patriotism of these men was less-than-well-served by the somewhat sophomoric
way the authors chose to tell the story. One wonders what the editor
But I absolutely enjoyed the book, and the Kevin T.
Collins narration was just perfect.
Fast-Paced, well-written, intriguing and believable plot, excellent narration. What were your other 2 reviewers drinking/smoking/ingesting??? We didn't listen to the same book. I can't wait to hear another book by Corbett,hopefully narrated by Collins.
