This gripping tale left me with a pride in the people defending our country, and respect for the training they receive. I found that the book was surprisingly well written, with a good use of vocabulary and conventions. The only complaint that I have involves the length of the book spent on training. A good third of the entire book was spent describing Luttrell’s time at BUD/s (Seal Training), and I found that it got fairly repetitive during times. Although, his fast-paced, heart-pumping tone during his time on the mountain most certainly made up for it.
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and found it extremely hard to put down. The backstory, while slow at times, was interesting to hear about, and the tale of his time on the mountain itself was absolutely gripping. I would rate this book 9/10, although the scoring is out of 5, so I’ll round up to 5/5. Please, do yourself a favor, and read this book!
Not a "the book is better!" review at all, great film all in all. The book just lends further knowledge and story to what the film lends. The story is well written and engaging and avoids getting bogged down in details the way some Clancy novels are.
Marcus does not paint himself as a superman....there were times he was scared, unsure, or wounded. He was very much a team player, as all SEALs are suppose to be. Marcus did not make himself out to be the only major player in this story either. He shared the credit with the other 3 members of his squad as well. At times the story brought tears to my eyes as each member of his team fell one by one. They certainly did NOT go down easy. They made their enemy pay dearly.
These events happened just 8 years ago, and to tell you the truth I do not remember much about this story. Now I had a bird's eye view of what actually happened and what these SEALs went thru. Makes you proud to be an American after reading this story. Currently selling for less than $4 ($3.99).
When I first started reading this book I was going in thinking right off the bat it would go into the details. But I thought wrong. For the first 60 pages or so it did not have that engaging effect that I was hoping for. It did have to explain the events leading up to what happened overseas. Once I got to the next 300 something pages. I could not put that book down! it just sucks you in as if you were actually there. Training and the Battle sections of the book were amazingly descriptive and painted a picture of the terrain and surrounding areas. It told the action packed story on how they had to survive through pain that went through each other and through the enemy. The reason they go to Afghanistan is because they gained intel of a man who was working with Osama Bin Laden and they were going to capture him. But what they did not know, was that this man was his right hand man. They go through the most grueling decisions and most painstaking experiences many people could not hold their gut to hear about. It shows what lengths this world has gone to to get what they want. I will not say much more of the book or else I could not stop! You must read this book if you like action and adventure. And a lot of time on your hands because you won’t want to stop reading it.
