I had expectations of this book to be more focused on the mission that killed Bin Laden, and the details around that mission. Instead this books first half is about the main character and his personal life and background, as well as life as being a navy seal in general. Very macho and did not like this part much. Reflections of the narrator as well were poor and naive. Interesting part about the Bin Laden mission though, but too short.
I read Harry Dolans first book Bad Things Happen this summer just before Very Bad Men. I thought the first book was a lot better than this one, so I was a little dissapointed. But overall it is a good listen, and worth the time. The book keeps you interested and takes new turns all the time, but at times it was a little to complicated and I started confusing names and fell out of the plot somehow. Anyway, I reccommend it for crime lovers and especially if you have a relationship to the city of Ann Arbor.
