Hard to say, I think the surviving members of the original class 228, especially Lt. Gallagher. All of the men in this book, from the trainees who lasted as long as they could, to the graduating class were incredible men made of tougher stuff then most of us. The SEAL instructors were also amazing. The mix of motivation and pressure is what forges these highly elite warriors.
Need inspiration? Listen to this book!
This is my first experience listening to him. I think he was chosen as he has the voice of "wise veteren", but I think they could have gotten someone with just a slight more pep in his voice. The 'Hooyahs' were a tad weak.
Again, so many to choose from. The section on Hell Week stands out, as does the classes final training missions. Again, this book is loaded with inspiring moments.
The narration is slow to the point that it is painful. While the books premise seemed intriguing, the author drones on and on about his childhood, not getting to the actual plot for quite some time. Try as I like, I just couldn't hang in there.
yes indeed! it gives great insight into the actual event and into the "why". the author has gone to great lengths to stick to the facts, and much of what he explores was either long forgotten, ignored or never brought to public attention.
That all of the rumors, theories and myths behind Columbine were just that....mostly false rumors and misbeliefs. This is the first work that I've come across that really explores the minds of Dylan and Eric, looking to see why they did what they did.
Overall this book sucked! The audio quality sounded like they were recording it on an old cassette player in someone's home. The reader had zero passion, made mistakes and would often pause midsentence for no reason.
A fresh take on the vampire genre, and chock full of trashy romance elements!! Merit, the main character, seems to be interesting, but many of the supporting characters (especially Catcher) look like they will really be the backbone of this series.
Ms. Holloway's performance made it difficult to tell of the character was speaking, or thinking their statements, and often times you cannot tell which action is being performed. She also doesn't seem to put much effort into using distinct "voices" for characters. She seems to have two character voices.....male and female....otherwise you can't tell which character is speaking.
I've read quite a few histoy/military history books so far, and this ranks right up there as one of the best tales to date. Dick Couch's 'Warrior Elite' edges this one out as the best so far, and I mention it becuae there is a relation betwen the two books. In this story, Marcus Latrell, USN SEAL, talks about his training with BUD/S class 228, the same class that Mr. Couch expertly documented in his book.
The novel begins a bit slow, and the readers attempt at a 'texas good ole boy' accent is distracting, but once the story shifts to Operation Red Wing, the pace picks up. If you want to be inspired, truely inspired, then read this AND 'Warrior Elite'. Navy SEALS are not just the toughest, best trained fighting division in the world, they are also an ultra rare breed of men. Their stories are simply amazing.
Most definatly! This is an excellent story, not easy to put down. It departs from the previous 2 books in the series but not going to the main characters journal, but this is ok and needed to move the plot along. You will not be bored!
Hard to choose only one, but Hourglass's final mission inside China ranks up there!
The 1st person account, and how you can see the zombie armagedon spawning. This book really shows how a small problem can erupt into a global epidemic because of government mismanagment.
I would if I could, as there was never a dull moment.
His performance, classic Hulkster! You don't rwally learn anything new about the man known as Terry Bolella, but it's just a great listen.
Please get the unabridged version!!!!
Learned a ton, no pun intended, about K Smith. Loved that he read it, and made it into more of a dialogue then just a simple read.
