Teaser Tuesdays - Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Miz B of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) random teaser sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS (make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away! You don't want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers! 




"Marcus, the body can take damn near anything.  It's the mind that needs training.  The question that guy was being asked involved mental strength.  Can you handle such injustice?  Can you cope with that kind of unfairness, that much of a setback?  And still come back with your jaw set, still determined, swearing to God you will never quit?  That's what we're looking for."

  1. Is this the book that the movie is based on? I'd like to read this one. Enjoy.

  2. It is. It's worth the read, even when it's difficult to learn what these guys went through.

  3. I saw an interview with Marcus Luttrell in December. His experiences were horrific. I probably need to read this book, and see the movie. But I may not be able to finish either one. I'm waffling. Will you be doing a review?

  4. I will be, although there are a lot of books ahead of it in my review queue. I'm glad I read it.
