- Product Review (submitted on June 8, 2013):
I am not an American..I am an Aussie, so American patriotism and geography are not my strong suit. It took me a few chapters to get into the book and it was quite long. There was a lot of detail provided about Adam's achievements that I just let wash over me because it was too much detail. I liked the narrator's voice...but his attempt at female voices did not work for me.
That all said, I did enjoy this book from the point of view of celebrating someone who turned their life around so dramatically. Though I knew the outcome, by the time of his last deployment my heart was in my throat just aching for him to pull through.
I shrugged off the female voices, intricate detail and American patriotism that glorified killing etc. I focussed on Adam's transformation and the witness of his growing integrity. However if you are one to always read critically you may struggle with aspects of this book and it's reading.
