American Sniper by Chris Kyle ****

I read American Sniper by Chris Kyle. I first watch the movie based on the book and enjoyed it so I figured I’d enjoy the book. I started to read and didn’t quite like it as much as I liked the movie and decided to try out another book. Over Thanksgiving break I decided to give it another chance and felt like I enjoyed it much more this time around. I enjoyed the detail the author went in while describing some of his experiences in Iraq, what it took to become a Navy SEAL, and life as a soldier. The only issue I had with this book was some of the terminology the author used since I was not familiar with military operations. I wouldn’t say that this book is for everyone since some parts are quite grotesque but I would recommend it to a friend.
