Book Review - Fearless

Fearless by Eric Blehm

MY REVIEW:  This book was truly amazing and it's because it is about an amazing man who, against huge odds, became a Navy Seal and protected our country against the evil.  I knew when I saw the book that it was going to be a great story, but I was unprepared for the odds that Adam Brown went through to get where he was.

Spoiler Alert:  I ususally try not to give away too much of the book, but it's hard not to in reviewing this book.  If you don't want to know details, please skip down to my recommendation. Adam Brown was a boy who pushed the envelope and I was amazed at some of the high places he decided to jump from! As a Mom, I can just imagine the terror he struck in his mother's heart when he would do these things. One thing everyone in the book commented on was his good heart and his love for others. However, he got caught up with a girl that got him hooked on drugs and suddenly, Adam had a monkey on his back. He got clean, had a family friend vouche for him, and went into the Navy. His goal was to be a Navy Seal and, against a lot of odds, he did just that! He was injured severely several times, but instead of taking disability, he kept on keeping on. His tenacity was so inspiring!! Unfortunately, Adam died serving his country by flushing out a terrorist cell.  I can't tell you how many tears flowed down my cheeks while reading this.

Recommendation:  I highly recommend this book! It shows what our brave men and women go through to protect our country.  It also shows what their families go through while their loved ones serve.  I also loved how Adam's Christian faith was always at the forefront of his life. I had a hard time putting this book down because it was such a great story and well written.  Fearless was inspiring, funny, and heart-wrenching. Do get a copy and read it!
