    (284)

    A ferocious firefight with Iraqi insurgents at "the battle of Al-Ansakar Canal" - three minutes and forty-three seconds of intense warfare caught on tape by an embedded Fox News crew - has transformed the eight surviving men of Bravo Squad into America's most sought-after heroes. For the past two weeks, the Bush administration has sent them on a media-intensive nationwide Victory Tour to reinvigorate public support for the war. Now, on this chilly and rainy Thanksgiving, the Bravos are guests of America's Team, the Dallas Cowboys....

    Story
    What did you love best about Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk?

    This book is insightful, funny, heartbreaking all at the same time. A modern war masterpiece. And Oliver Wyman's narration is pitch perfect.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Billy Lynn, of course. Too young to drink (legally) yet old enough to have his best friend die in his arms, Billy Lynn has wisdom born of combat. He's still an innocent but not a sucker. His keen assessments of people and events around him provide the beautiful narrative arc of this book.


    What does Oliver Wyman bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Oliver Wyman was perfect in every way, especially the way he captured the soldiers of Bravo Company.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no
