Well this book is good in the fact that it is a true story and is relatabel to actual soldiers. It uses high vocabulary and military slang which makes it hard to understand at times but puts a nice challenge for urban dictionary. Part adventure part biography, I was expecting an action pack tale of heroism and overcoming odds! But I just did not fully enjoy the way the story played out jumping from flash back to reality all to many times sometimes not letting you know where your at. Just not my type of book. I would say this book is for people 17+ due to is grammar and the way its set up.
