Format: Paperback
It is difficult to read this memoir and not attach to the author Nathan Geist, who prefers to assume the moniker Sergeant Danger Geist. There is a sense of immediacy an truth in the manner in which he relates his life, his reasons for giving up high school to join the national Guard, his subsequent life that compelled him to serve as a Chaplin's Assistant in the war in Afghanistan, and the impact his decisions had on his life. Gist is a fundamentalist Christian yet takes the time to explain the role of spirituality under any religious name so that we know we are not in for a pulpit-pounding sermon.

It seems fair to quote Geist's own words about this book and its journey: `What would you do if you knew that, no matter what, you couldn't die? Six years ago, something happened to me. My life was in shambles, and I had romantic fantasies of committing suicide. I listened for God to hear my cries, and He ignored me. At least I thought He was ignoring me. All that changed on February 18, 2006, when He reached into my life and foretold a prophecy: He told me that I would marry a girl that I hadn't even met yet. But this came with a side effect: until this prophecy came to pass, I couldn't die. This prophecy was tested. It was tested as I traveled the streets of East St. Louis by myself, it was tested when I went to one of the most dangerous regions in Afghanistan, and it was tested after I came back from war and found myself slowly emotionally dying. Throughout this entire journey, I was also convicted to write down all my experiences. I wrote down everything that happened to me, whether I understood why I was writing it down or not. And now, after spending the last two years going over my journal and putting it all into one coherent story, I just want a few minutes of your attention.

Sgt. Geist has put his many gifts and talents into writing a memorable story. From the very first page, I was excited to follow him on a journey through many diverse emotions, experiences, and renewels of faith. The reader will be uplifted, surprised, and saddened by Sgt. Geist's recounting of all he has been through since signing on with the Army National Guard at the vulnerable age of 17. I enjoyed his adept writing style, and all the twists and turns he endured while striving to reach the "finish line" of his deployment. Well done!

This is an excellent memoir of Sergeant Geist's life before, during, and after his tour in Afghanistan, from being a teenager to growing quickly to a man. It helps us, who are at home, understand their way of life and survival. A MUST read for all!! Thank YOU Sergeant Geist for your sacrifice!!

Format: Paperback
I thought I knew what a good story was. I thought I had read everything there was to read that could captivate the mind and stimulate the senses. I thought that a book about the war and Afghanistan was over done.

I was wrong.

"I Am Danger, I Am Prisoner" turned all my preconceptions about a book about Afghanistan on their heads. You think you know the war in Afghanistan? You think you know how it goes over there, and the personal battle of soldiers who serve? Oh my friend...you have no idea.

Not only does Danger tell a very compelling story, but he tells it with the raw emotion and experience of a person who actually went through time in Afghanistan. He debunks the myths that the media tells while inspiring courage about the positive things that are ACTUALLY happening.

I cannot stress this enough: this book will be worth the time you give it. A better and more poignant storyteller I have not met. After you read this, you will agree.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a non-religious individual, I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about this book knowing that there is a strong religious undertone. However, because I know Danger, I went ahead and purchased a copy anyways. I have to say, I feel like I would be much more receptive to religion if every Christian had the characteristics Danger possesses.

The story itself is an amazing journey of Nate Geist from the little town of Zion, IL with no real direction in life to Sgt. Danger Geist who travels to dangerous destinations foreign and domestic to spread the word of God. The honesty, humility, and unwaivering faith that Danger shows throughout would make an excellent fictional story; that fact that these events actually occurred is just incredible. His journey is inspiring, humbling, and entertaining all at once, and that's what makes it a great read.

Pick this one up, there's absolutely no way you can regret it.

Format: Paperback
I don't typically read auto-biography or memoir-themed books, so I wasn't sure what to expect as I started reading this story. What I found was an honest, emotional, and thoughtful story about how Sgt. Geist found himself and found peace through a series of challenging life events and through the support of his loved ones. Some parts of the story seem larger-than-life, but I think that everyone can relate to some part of his story, whether it is becoming an adult, finding and trusting in your faith, or dealing with the sacrifices our troops make to serve our country. This is a true story written in a way that forces you to keep reading--I couldn't put it down!
