I haven't. Didn't know about it until reading this thread. It'll be my next book after I finish Vince Flynn's new one.

I'd recommend it.
Finished no easy day last night. Very good. Much better than the portrayal in zero dark thirty.
Anyway, lutrell in lone survivor was a 6'4" texan that boasts about his size. Marky mark is 5'8" masshole. Curious to see how he portrays him. One redeeming thing is Eric Bana plays a team leader. His character Hoot in Black Hawk Down was great.

Hollywood can make Marky look that tall if they want to. I can't imagine Lutrell approving of Marky if he didnt think he could do it. I wouldn't have cast him, but I'm not a director either.

Eric bana is a pretty good actor. He was awesome in Munich.

Zero dark thirty was done by the same chic as hurt locker. I wasn't a fan of that movie so idk how 0 dark 30 will be. I think lone survivor would make a better movie though.
