Truly enjoyed this book. Is what I expected. Lesnar is a private person and not out to write a work of literary genius. You get pure, honest, straightforward Lesar insight and opinion. From his roots to all aspects of his career, up through his loss to Cain Valesquez, all is enjoyable, direct and full of zeal. All I hoped for from a guy we honestly know little about. Gets a five as I am a fan and a mark, but I think most casual fans will enjoy it.
Sequel to THE LIONS GAME, great finish. Was the first John Corey book I listened to and have subsequently listened to all of them. Should be made into a movie. Highly recommend.
Sad, hard to listen to at times, told in a very fast paced, detailed manner. Thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend to all. Some may not like all the detail or some of the manner in which it is told, but I enjoyed throughout. Sad, true tale.
This and The Lion. Great 1 2 combo. Great story and storytelling. Unbelievable at times, but always well told and humorous. Laugh out loud at some of the comebacks. The Corey character is a star and his supporting cast very good. This should be made into a movie as should its sequel. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
In terms of suspense and dread, probably the best book I have listened to. Figured out what was coming and was spellbound the last half of the book, literally could not stop listening. Major disruption in my life for a couple of days. Will listen to again some time, was so intense, I need to let some time pass. Dreadful series of events and no question as to what is coming, just ungodly to hear real events portrayed in this type of story. Great story, looking forward to a re-listen at some point.
Probably my third favorite of the Corey series, enjoyable beginning to end. Hated to hear it end. Fantastic, outrageous plot, but great to listen to and humorous throughout. Characters top notch and the reader can see the evolution of some over time (book to book). Great listen, would listen to again.
Enjoyed the whole story, beginning to end. Great characters. Not as humorous as the Corey novels, but believable and easy to follow. Dialogue between characters often long and sometimes seems repetitive, probably the only draw back. Main female character must light up 100 cigarettes, Marlboro must have sponsored this work. In any event, highly recommend and would listen to again.
The first of the John Corey novels, really entertaining, funny and great to listen to. Enjoyed the whole book start to finish, highly recommend this as I do all of the John Corey stories. Great mix of truth and fictional story telling, great characters and easy to relate to.
Timing is perfect for this book. Great insight into the making of and life as a seal. Surprising detail and opinion. Nothing astoundingly new or over the top, but fans of the genre will enjoy.
