So I saw this rated the “book of the year for 2011” from a friend of mine whom I really respect. I figured if it was his #1, then I better check it out. I’m not a huge war story guy, so before reading it, I had my reservations.. I’m pleased to report that this book was amazing! I’d recommend it to anyone. It was one of those books where I caught myself not wanting to put it down. If you’ve ever had a bad day and thought, “My life couldn’t possibly get any worse”, read this book and you’ll never think that again and be grateful for the life you have. I don’t want to spoil the book if you haven’t read it. Once you get done with it though, message me. I’d be curious as to your thoughts.
