American Sniper

 
--I remember the first time I saw Chris Kyle on O'Reilly's show, I was impressed.  I immediately wrote down his book and put it on my Goodreads list.

--Tragically, after being a Navy Seal and the most successful sniper in American military history, he was killed by another soldier he was trying to help who suffered from PTSD.


--I have since bought Kyle's book and was very excited to see that they have made a movie about him starring Bradley Cooper.  The movie has the same title as his book, American Sniper.  It comes out in December.  I will be one of the first in line to see it.

--I am a big Bradley Cooper fan, so I'm glad that he is playing Kyle.  And to add icing to the cake, Clint Eastwood is the director.

--I have 3 months to get the book read before the movie.  I'm looking forward to it.

I didn't think that Chris Kyle had the best writing style, but it is an excellent book. He mentions Marcus Luttrell in his book. So after reading it, I read Lone Survivor twice. Excellent, excellent, excellent. I snagged Marcus' 2nd book, Service, dirt cheap on Kindle one day, so am looking forward to reading it too. I'm sure it will be just as good.

Yes, Lori, I read Marcus Luttrell's book, and it was amazing and so was the movie. I will look up his other book.

And I appreciate your thoughts on Kyle's book, I'm sure that will make it easier for me to navigate through it. Thanks!
