I listened to this audio book on a long road trip and enjoyed Oliver Wyman's narration. I've read quite a few Iraqi war novels and this one is different because it wraps itself all up in the alter of American Football and Thanksgiving. The half-time scene is absolutely brilliant, the description of the wealthy wives spot on.

There were a few unbelievable parts (Billy Lynn's virginity for one) and on more than one occasion the story stopped while the author went on a political rant. Dear Author, Please be quiet! I'm trying to listen to Billy. I even agreed with the author's politics but still to me it was a bit heavy handed.
