Yes, although the story is not a rivetting as some others and the narration by the reader was not very good, I still think it is a good story and worth the listen.
I enjoyed Brandon Webb's peronal additions/reflections at the beggining of the story, the start of each chapter, and the end of the book.
Not unless there was no other way to get to "read" the story. I would probably read the actual book before listening to him again. Someone should have at least gone over with him the pronunciation of the common military jargon used in the book.
Proper pronunciation of military jargon is a common error among a lot of the narrators/readers in audio books. It reflects a lack of military service or even knowledge of our military. If you choose not to serve, that's fine, but if you are going to make money off of the backs of those who did by narrating their story at least take a little time to educate yourself on their way of life. It comes across as "I don't care enough to learn how to pronounce "BUD/S". There used to be a work ethic in this country that went something like, "if you are going to do something....take the time and put in the effort to do it right."
