The audio version had a narrator with what I perceived as an excellent Texas dialect. That brought in a great connection to Chris.
There was a moment in the action when a new SEAL member was shot. Chris didn't realize this, and he was telling him to get up. Then, he saw the blood. Chris was carrying his buddy out over his shoulder, and in a convoluted train of events, the injured SEAL stopped him, and walked out with Chris' help. Later in the book you learn WHY the injured SEAL committed himself to walk.
The Texas drawl, and John could change his tone when Chris' wife's story was added to the book. Still there were times when I didn't realize that the book switched from his wife, back to Chris. I have no idea how to spell his wife's name or I would use it.
The luckiest warrior, and the lady who loved him.
I recommend this to all veterans, and those who love veterans. Chris did an amazing service for us, and he clearly had a guardian angel. If you have a problem with foul language, stay away from this, but understand that in this story, the language created a honest connection to the characters. SEALS are not dainty.
OK, so at 52 hours it was a lengthy read. It was also often a WORDY read. Ayn had some moments of inspiration that seemed to go on forever. However....
Ayn really got the to psychology of the champions of big government controls, the "what harm can come of it?" apologists, and the sheep in all societies. She also brought praise to the titans of commerce, the people who create jobs that feed our children.
This is a book that takes on the evil of Liberalism, the power of a dream, and how both affect the common man. It is a "must read" for anyone who still cares about the world that their children will inherit.
