Am I reading fact or fiction? Or 'Faction' The best Brad Thor book I have read so far and I supposed that is because it was more like reading straight from todays newspaper headlines in many places! The characters Harvath is dealing with seem 'very real'. The situation he is faced with, without giving way the plot, could be our reality by tomorrow morning. Highly recommend this one.
I stumbled into this book because of the narrator and stayed because of the tale the author wove. A tale of those who have no true believe system other than the code they can write or the thrill of the 'hack'. The young people who were given The Lie and believed it. All the hacking done by Morris is plausible. That he is a Goverment employee is also believable. And there is where this tale causes that shiver down your spine. But that is only one of the strands in this web of lies, deceipt Mr Ignatius has so tighty woven. Add Geo. Guidall, a true master, and I could not turn it off. This is one of those I wanted to listen to straight through.
I bought this book on the synopis and the snipet of the audio and really expecting much out of it but was lost in the story by the end of the first chapter. Good descriptive writing, whether it was a room or the action. I am wondering if Nathan can morph into a good strong enduring character Mr. Hill did a bit better job on this book. If he would just slow the pacing of his words a bit and not send them at the listener in harsh rapid fire I would have liked the naration better. I would like to see a second offering from Mr Peterson and Guidall doing the narative.
Tucked away in the beautiful mountains of New Mexico.
I like action, especially on a long car trip, and this book delivers just as much as The Gray Man. Court Gentry is quite a character with lots of moving parts and superhero machismo. If you want lots of action, this will do nicely.
