On the subject of dialogue, film and why reading a book after seeing the movie might not be such a bad idea after all....
Please check out my review of Walter Mosley's 1990 neo-noir title, Devil in a Blue Dress. It's not as good as some of his later work, but don't let that stop you. It's still a great read.
My latest review is Single Girl Abroad by Kelly Hunter
I've reviewed two books about Navy Seals
Amercian Snyper is about Navy Seal Chris Kyle (a home boy-from Texas). Kyle has the distinction of the most recorded sniper kills in U.S. Military History. In his book he takes us on a brief tour through his Texas upbringing, how he joined the Navy and eventually became a Navy seal. He then embarks on where he was when the trade center was attacked and his subsequent career in Iraq.
I am a Seal Team Six Warrior are the memoirs of Howard E. Wasdin. Not only was Wasdin a Navy Seal but he was a member of the elite of the elite: Team Six. This means that in addition to going through the “hell week” training all navy Seals go through, they endure even harsher training besides.
