American Sniper

THE BOOK
The collaborative effort of Chris Kyle with Scott McEwen and Jim DeFelice, American Sniper is the memoir of the US armed forces’ deadliest sniper, Chris Kyle.
WHY I PICKED IT UP
I read a news article about the late Kyle’s unfortunate murder and noticed the book on display at the local bookstore.
WHERE/WHY I STOPPED
I stopped in the prologue after the second time the author referred to a terrorist as ‘evil’ and continued to elucidate exactly how evil. This happened about three pages in. Now I’m not a fan of terrorists per se, but the word evil sprang up so often in the following passages I could feel it becoming preachy.
WHAT COULD BE BETTER, IF ANYTHING
Less emphasis on the ‘evil.’  I know terrorists are bad; I don’t need it preached to me. It was just distracting. Everything else I read was interesting and well written.
