Krakauer is one of my favoite authors, but this is not his best work. The story of Pat Tilman is riveting and as usual, well researched, but the book devolves into a repetitively preachy "expose." I don't think anyone out there would still be to shocked to find out the Army tries to cover up it own mistakes. The narrator's tone is also annoying and dripping with an indignant air. I would have enjoyed it more if I had read it myself so I could skip over the syrup.
A great listen from beginning to end. He doesn't leave out the ugly stuff. Since "reading" the book I have become a fan of his show.
The sample is the author narrating the introduction. I was very disappointed when a stuffy gent took over the rest of the narration. The content, however, overcomes the boring narration.
