This was a fascinating listen and I would recommend it to anyone. It short and to the point with no interpretation from the author - just the soldiers point of view

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Its a fast, action packed ride that has enough twists and turns to keep you guessing. The characters are well filled out and i even became emotionally invested in some.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

a lot of nice pop references that make you smile

U get what u expect from a Bill Bryson book and that is a good thing. It's not quite as sharp or funny as some of his others but still a very enjoyable 12 hours or so

This is a hard book to review. On its own it's quite good but it has too many wasted minutes on description of shields etc but the sorry is solid

The main problem is that it's reads like a fairy tale not the gritty ice and fire story. I can't help thinking his time would have been better spend to finish book 6

If I could write books this is the sort of books I would write. Love the humour, creators and ideas. Just read it.

Just the right mix of evil dead 2 and Rambo. Cool pop reference, cheesy one liners and all round goodness

This is not overly critical of the U.S. And it's only a very light intro into the topic.
