I found this book to be very interesting and filled with noteworthy anecdotes surrounding many battles in both Afghanistan and Iraq. However it lacked more insight into the political aspects of what drove both of these conflicts. As much as I appreciated the many battlefield stories I was looking for more insight and perhaps reasoning behind the battles. Maybe there really isn't any good reason why we went there why we are still in Afghanistan. I fear our country will make the same mistake in the future as long as Pride and money are at the Center of our political landscape.
I watched the movie and was drawn into getting the sequel before it too came out in the theater. Unfortunately, this sequel leaves you hanging. It really died during the third act. This story started out very well. It was interesting and you felt that you were in the story because you were finding out new things as they occurred to the protagonist. However, I think that we deserve to know what the eff wicked is by now and yet we're no closer to understanding what's going on than we were at the end of the first book and i find that very irritating.
I love the corps series. Although this story had very little action, it was filled with lots of bravado "
marineisms" and somewhat accurate history. Either way I believe that dick Hill's performance made it much easier to listen to. He is an amazing performer and is able to do lots of different voices which assist with keeping track of who is who. The previous two books had more action however this one is really setting up the fourth book very well. If you like the previous two books I believe you will enjoy this one as well.
This is by far one of my favorite audio books. I love the sounds effects that all Star Wars audio books incorporate into the story telling. You can hear the lightsabers turning on, droids beeping/whistling, etc...
Discovering who Revan was married to.
When they tied together both of the KOTOR video games into the story.
If you loved the KOTOR video games, then this is what we have been waiting for.... closure WRT Revan's and the Exile's stories.
