"Black Hawk Down" gives the listener/reader a glimpse into the mind of the professional soldiers that make up Delta Force and the United States Army Rangers. "I will never leave a fallen comrade to fall into the hands of the enemy and under no circumstances will I ever embarrass my country." These are dedicated, selfless, heroic men and Mr. Bowden has done his best to put the story of this part of their history forward for us.
Bob Lee Swagger. How could it be anyone else?
Yes he does a great job.
Write more books with these characters.
You got to love what Stephen Hunter does with plot twists. This one has the listener/reader going until the end. Bob "The Nailer" is back and there is no end to the excitement. A very good listen that will keep you hanging.
Darren McGavin is difficult to understand at best in this rendition of "The Bourne Ultimatim" which makes for a long and difficult listening experience. His ability to switch voices is limited and thus leads to considerable confusion for the listener. Combine this with a very poor recording and music mixing and it is just not worth the listeners time or investment. The abridgement is extreme and the story line suffered. I was not going to finish but held on hoping it would improve toward the end, it didn't. I will read the book to see just how much I missed.
If this had been done as well as the Bourne Legacy it would have been great.
