    From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more than 150 of Kyles kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him al-Shaitan ("the devil") and placed a bounty on his head.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of American Sniper to be better than the print version?

    Didn't read print version


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Chris Kyle - open and honest relay of what it was like to be a Navy Seal, Husband and someone committed to his military duty.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When they were ambushed in a house in Sadr City. Intense.


    Any additional comments?

    This book gave good insight of a military career from start to finish and let you in on the hardships, sacrifice and satisfaction one man experienced. Sometimes ran together with the detailed stories but was mostly very interesting. I would recommend this even to people who don't think they are fans of military themed books.

    Story
    (937)

    Hig survived the flu that killed everyone he knows. His wife is gone, his friends are dead, he lives in the hangar of a small abandoned airport with his dog, his only neighbor a gun-toting misanthrope. In his 1956 Cessna, Hig flies the perimeter of the airfield or sneaks off to the mountains to fish and to pretend that things are the way they used to be. But when a random transmission somehow beams through his radio, the voice ignites a hope deep inside him that a better life exists beyond the airport.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would recommend this book to a friend because it was they type of story that is sometimes intense, sometimes thoughtful but always interesting and moved along at a nice pace.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Dog Stars?

    When the main character went into the woods with his dog.


    What does Mark Deakins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Just the right inflections to make him believable as the main character.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The main character's relationship with his dog, like when they slept at night.
