This is the 4th installment of this series that I haven't finished yet. I won't listen to a 5th.
The story is filled with "slap my own back" accolades about how much he is a natural born killer at the ripe young age of 16. The self promotion of how deadly he is has even gained him the respect of a full bird Colonel, who gave him a Humvee as a token of his high esteem for killing 16 bad guys single handed with a knife, rock, and grenades.
I'm no psychologist, but this author has found his forum to indulge his fantasy as being a teenage Rambo. Probably because he doesn't possess these SOG skills except while playing a video game.
Why would trained military personnel, including his father, seek advise on strategy and tactics from a teenager who is barely of legal age to drive? Anyway, I digress.
The narrator delivers an excellent performance. One salvation to this book.
...and can someone tell me if "curiouser" is even a word? I tried to look it up, but maybe my dictionary app needs to be updated.
