Review: Do you have what it takes to become a Navy SEAL? Do you want to know what being a Navy SEAL is like? Do you like memoirs? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then you found the book for you! The Warrior's Heart is a memoir written by Eric Greitens, a former Navy SEAL.
Eric Greitens wants to test his strength and serve the country at the same time, so he joins the Navy SEALS. Prior to entering the Navy, he helped countries in need. When he entered the SEALS, he put himself through the toughest regimen that America has to offer. The question is: Will Eric Greitens have the strength, the will, and countless other attributes to push through the challenges and complete the requirements of the SEALS?
I personally love this book. I would strongly recommend this book to boys and girls in grades six and higher. Some readers may think that The Warrior's Heartstarts sort of slow but overall, the book is very fast paced and filled with action and lessons. The Warrior's Heart is about 260 pages, not too short and not too long. The author takes you through his life. For example, during college he travelled to many different countries helping the aid workers take care of orphans and refugees in search of safety. If you appreciate emotion, this book has some very sad moments. On the other hand, it also has some very happy moments. Mr. Greitens is very detailed, taking the reader through his training and the process of becoming a Navy SEAL. For example, while Eric is in his training, he explains every part of each exercise. I found it very interesting to read about his combat missions overseas. This book is meant to appeal to older mature audiences who can appreciate the rigorous training and combat required of Navy SEALS. There is nothing inappropriate in the book. To recap, The Warrior's Heart is a great book about one man and the Navy seals. I strongly suggest that you check out this book!
