It's not "About Face"
This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
I read this book when it first came out in the 90's and loved it. I was hoping Hack would be able to put a little extra in to make it worth getting on audio. Unfortunately, the production was half-assed and Hack seemed too tired to read his own book. That took a lot away from the story.
Has Hazardous Duty turned you off from other books in this genre?
I still love books about war and the military, and this book is good if you read the original.
Would you be willing to try another one of David H. Hackworth’s performances?
I would LOVE if they'd have Ray Porter read "About Face." Since Colonel Hackworth is dead, there will be no more books, articles or performances.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Hazardous Duty?
There is little I'd cut out, I would ADD the rest of the book that weren't read like the parts about Haiti and Croatia.
Any additional comments?
I can't stress enough that I am a big fan of David Hackworth. It's just that this audiobook was produced, edited, and performed badly. Hack just sounded tired and un-involved with his own book.
