Lone Survivor

I received a very exciting text message from one of my favorite people, Nicole, this morning.  My absolute favorite auto-biography has been made into a movie and will be coming out in January!

If you've ever looked at my favorite books tab, you've seen Lone Survivor listed under my favorite non-fiction books...for, like, a long time.

Oddly enough, this book actually came to me from my husband, David, who is a pacifist.  Marcus Luttrell came to give a talk at David's previous employer and gave each employee a copy of his book.  David came home that night, after watching this guy speak, and said, "You've got to read this.  This guy's story is amazing." 

Amazing doesn't even begin to describe it.

I loved this book and, literally, cannot wait to see this grace the silver screen.  Though, I know I'll be balling like a baby in the end.  I cried for the last 50-100 pages and if you intend to read it (or watch it in January), be sure to grab some tissue.  I'll just say this once, there's a reason why the title is lone survivor.
