    Four US Navy SEALS departed one clear night in early July, 2005 for the mountainous Afghanistan-Pakistan border for a reconnaissance mission. Their task was to document the activity of an al Qaeda leader rumored to have a small army in a Taliban stronghold. Five days later, only one of those Navy SEALS made it out alive. This is the story of the only survivor of Operation Redwing, SEAL team leader Marcus Luttrell, and the extraordinary firefight that led to the largest loss of life in American Navy SEAL history.

    Mike says: "Enthralling and authentic story of valor in combat"
    "Buy it, play it at 1.5 speed"

    If you could sum up Lone Survivor in three words, what would they be?

    Great F'ing Story


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Lone Survivor?

    It's just a great story. Read it.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kevin Collins’s performances?

    Nah. Reads to slow and is not in touch with the personality of the author or the characters. Makes me queasy when he quotes the instructors.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Stupid question


    Any additional comments?

    Some reviewers are a bit too negative. Just play the book at 1.5 speed and it is a very good pace for the dull monotone of the reader. The content of the story is excellent.
