Just enough history, action and emotional intrigue to keep the pace going the entire time. It would definitely be a kick a$$ movie!
Just finished this one. Nice long book. Wasn't quite as epic as advertised but entertaining all the same. An awful lot of familiar elements to regular scifi devourers.
This was a fantastic book. Combined with Michael Ware's work and Yuri's photographs you get a very real look at the work being done by our soldiers abroad. Door by door you live with SSG Bellavia and his crew as they fight through Fellujah. If you want to hear a soldier's unfiltered point of view this is a great read.
Just finished this one. It was a decent tale of merc forces evolving job in Iraq. As the author had befriended one of the main characters it tends to drift more into his life. Overall it was entertaining, a little sad and a little random.
fun book, very "Full Metal Jacket" at times. Keeps the heart of the Marines pumping in the story through out.
This book definitely covers a well rounded history of the beginnings, function and psychology of military snipers. I can't say it was terribly enthralling as it read more like a multifaceted school book. Recommended for those who are just starting to take an interest in the "craft".
After years of friends telling me "you HAVE to read this series!" I finally broke down and got the first (audio)book. If there is a copy/paste function for entire books it's used here. The amount this is like Lord of the Rings made it more comical than entertaining. With enough heartwarming predictability to warrant an armored kitten on the cover I can honestly recommend this book to anyone who keeps a very thorough Ren-fair diary.
Wasn't quite what I was looking for. I was hoping for a little harder sci-fi. Overall it felt like some great ideas tied together with a superficial plot that never seemed to deliver the grandeur of the concepts. The narration was fantastic, driving home some pretty emotional moments. A good entry into softer sci-fi for armchair philosophers.
