I really looked forward to this book. I had wanted to pick it up in hardback, but found it here on audible and had credit. I regret downloading it because Jack Garrett did a terrible job reading . He plays it up like he's narrating some overly dramatic film trailer, which ruins the book. The story speaks for itself; just read like a normal human being.

What did you love best about Horse Soldiers?
Fantastic Story! Great read, check it out.
What about Jack Garrett’s performance did you like?
I hated Jack Garretts performance. He sounded like he belongs in a Michael Bay movie. His attempt at a gritty dramatic dialog reminded me of the most cliche 80's action drama. It was so stupid it actually detracted from the story; which is a bummer since the story is very well written.
Any additional comments?
I hope Jack Garrett gets trampled by the the wildebeest with strep throat that he was trying to sound like.

I had hoped for a interesting re telling of the events after 9.11. but fund my self not very engaged in the story. The story line jumps between characters and within the timeline which can be confusing. I found myself not focusing on the story frequently. I would say the the story would have benefitted from beeing condensed and more focused. maybe cutting the first hours and alot of the what is happening back home parts. a order timeline would have helped too. Also if you dont want to hear a very very American tale of heroism you should give this a pass.
I am not saying this is a bad book, I do not regret buying it. but I would definitely call it flawed.

It’s such a shame this book is completely let down its narration!. At first I wasn’t put off by it but as the book progressed it got harder and harder to keep focussed on the story.
The narrators voice seems to keep the same boring tone regardless of what’s happening in the book rising and falling, it just switches you off and destroys what I’m sure would have otherwise been an engaging listen.
Despite persevering with im now returning.
