Fearless: The Undaunted Courage and Ultimate Sacrifice of Navy SEAL Team Six Operator Adam Brown
Epic Biography Of An American Hero
Fearless by Eric Blehm is the true story of Adam Brown, a member of Navy SEAL Team SIX, who struggled with drugs as a young adult, found God and turned his life around to the point he was a member of one of the most highly trained teams in the world. It is an incredible journey with many twists and turns that keep you on the edge of your seat.
This book has it all from a psycho young man striving to be the best at everything he tried to a drug addict throwing his life away to a Navy SEAL saving lives and taking out evil people. In between these three stages of life are many struggles, injuries and life experiences that are interesting to hear about and at times breath taking to behold.
The best thing about this book is that Adam Brown was not a perfect man but he overcame his troubles to excel in a field that few succeed. He wanted to make sure that his complete story was told, so as to help others who may be struggling with addiction based issues that threatened to wreck his life.
This book does contain some pro-war propaganda and I am not a supporter of the war but it is to be expected as it is a soldierÃ¢ÂÂs perspective of the war. Although I donÃ¢ÂÂt support the war, I have the utmost respect for the soldiers that are over there doing their job and hopefully making the world a better place and the sacrifices they make on a daily basis should not be underestimated.
The narration was quite interesting because the narrator, Paul Michael, attempted to play multiple people including women. I think it would have worked better if a woman did the female voices and he just spoke the male voices but I quite enjoyed the overall effect. I found the narration quite interesting and it helped convey the different opinions of the people central to AdamÃ¢ÂÂs life.
This is one of the best books I have read in a long time because it was so interesting and inspiring to see someone who didnÃ¢ÂÂt start out perfect but achieved so much in such a short space of time to become a true hero.
