    The 21st century sniper is a mature, intelligent shooter who leverages technology to his deadly advantage. He has spent thousands of hours honing his skills. He is a master of concealment in all environments, from the mountains of Afghanistan to the crowded streets of Iraq. He is trained in science and left alone to create the unique art of the kill. To the sniper, the battlefield is like a painter’s blank canvas. It is his job to simultaneously utilize tools, training, and creativity to deliver devastating psychological impact upon the battlefield. And it is he alone who is left with the intimacy of the kill.

    Story
    Where does The 21st-Century Sniper rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Allen O'Rielly has no business narrating. He consistently mispronounced words, or overpronounced others. ".30-06" is not pronounced "point three zero to zero six". The points in the guns arent ever prnounced, and you definitely don't say "three zero to zero six".

    He often stopped to catch his breathe, and semed generally inept. The book itself is great, focusing mostly on guns, tactis, and the history of the sniper. If you're looking for a book about that, then it's a great read. I stress READ unless they get some one else to narrorate this.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The "inside" story of snipers.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Allen O'Reilly’s performances?

    NO NO NO NO NO. I'd prefer a book narrorated by Gilbert Godfrey.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. It's not even designed that way. You can, but it's easy to put back down and pick back up without worrying about what details you forgot.


    Any additional comments?

    I also reccomend Brandon Webb's "Benghazi: The Definitive Report" and it is worth noting that Glen Doherty (co-author of this book) died trying to save lives in the 9/11 Benghazi attack.
