Samenvatting

Gripping, eye-opening, and powerful, American Sniper is the astonishing autobiography of SEAL Chief Chris Kyle, who is the record-holding sniper in U.S. military history. Kyle has more than 150 officially confirmed kills (the previous American record was 109), though his remarkable career total has not been made public by the Pentagon.

In this New York Times bestselling memoir, Kyle shares the true story of his extraordinary decade-long career, including his multiple combat tours in Iraq (Operation Iraqi Freedom) and elsewhere from 1999-2009.

Kyle’s riveting first-person account of how he went from Texas rodeo cowboy to expert marksman and feared assassin offers a fascinating view of modern-day warfare and one of the most in-depth and illuminating looks into the secret world of Special Ops ever written.

    Een zeer goed boek en zeer sterk geschreven, het toont niet meteen alle horrors van de oorlog maar het heeft het gevoel van verlies en de stress wel zeer goed weer. Het is niet het beste oorlogsboek dat ik al heb gelezen maar het is wel één van de betere.

    Als je denkt ik heb de film gezien.. dus ik hoef het boek niet te lezen..heb je het mis.
    Het boek verteld veel meer als ze in de film konden laten zien.
    In het Engels lees je het zo Chris Kyle het op papier heeft gezet.
    Er gaan soms wat dingen verloren in de vertaling.. 1 daarvan is humor.
    Spannend van begin tot eind.. en na het lezen heb je een behoorlijke inkijk in zijn leven gekregen.

    Erg spannend boek, in een rits uitgelezen. De schrijver is erg patriottistisch, maar niet storend. Ik heb van te voren de series Generation Kill en Over There gezien, toen ik het boek las zag ik alles weer voorbij komen.

    Één van de eerste boeken die mijn aandacht tot het einde vasthoudt. Soms worden de legerafkortingen wel wat irritant. Leest verder goed weg. Ben altijd al geinterreseerd in scherpschutters, dit boek verteld mooi het verhaal van een scherpschutter in de oorlog door zijn eigen ogen. Het Engels is verder ook makkelijk te lezen.
