Best book ever. Some say the author is monotone, I think the author reading the book is perfection. He is a true soldier and hero and he speaks like one that has been there. This isn't a story that needs to come to life. He tells the story from his point of view and it makes you feel like you are there. I found myself mesmerized. It was like I was watching a movie. Favorite book. Hands down.
The quality of the DVD disc was poor and several sections skipped and distracted from listening to the story in addition I have to agree with the other listeners that the monotone delivery was weak.
I enjoyed this book overall but my enthusiam was dampened by the monotone, delivery of the author.
A professional would have brought this story alive, with Durant reading it barely survives.
AN EMOTIONAL AND CAPTIVATING BIOGRAPHY. WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS AUDIO BOOK TO THOSE WHO ARE INTERESTED IN THE LIVES OF OUR MILITARY MEN & WOMAN. I PURCHASED TWO BOOKS AFTER LISTENING TO THIS BOOK, GAVE ONE TO MY HUSBAND AND SENT THE OTHER TO MY DAD IN CALIFORNIA. TRULY A GREAT READ.
Well read, and extremely well written. I was there with him through the entire event. It will bring a tear to your eyes.
Mike Durant tells his story of capture, confinement, and release with such courage and grace. Great book for anyone interested in the life of a real soldier and hero.
Enjoyed the book and would recommend. The book is specific to Michael Durant's captivity and does a nice job providing background synopsis pertaining to the events of Black Hawk Down. Michael Durant is the narrator and does an excellent job articulating the imagery of his ordeal and the courage displayed by fellow comrades.
