the "good guy" characters are caricatures of the feeble-minded "good vs. evil" neocons that currently control things in Washington. They're tough, but they're dumb as rocks. I'd like to see more complex characters.
Vince Flynn is a good writer that takes you throuh some serious missions. Everything is fastpaced. It would be good if 'Unabridged' versions were available; gaps would be filled in.
I could have done many things instead of listening to this book! This book kept my attention and I could not stop listening. Must rate as one of the best audiobooks that I listened to during the past 3 years. It is awesome, tense, and the suspense is enormous. Now that I finished the book I can get around doing things again. I already bought another Mitch Rapp book.
This book was strong from start to finish. The characters developed and the internal politics of D.C. were on display. I will definitely read another of Vince Flynn's works.
If you like Spy vs Spy type of books, here it is.
Multiple plots, people chasing each other around the world, Terrorists, it's got it all.
This is one of the best written and well read books that I have listened to in the last year.
I was riveted to this book. I hated to get off the train when I got home and couldn't wait to get back on it when I was at work.
One thing that impressed me was at the very moment of the ending... I practically yelled out laud...."COOL!"
I gave up Patricia Corwell because the endings kept going down hill on her books.
I think you're gonna like this one!
If the other selections from Vince Flynn were unabridged, I'd fill my wish list with them.
I really enjoyed this audiobook. The narrator was excellent, and the subject matter timely and interesting. One can only hope that we have several Mitch Rapp's on the US payroll...
Great escapist, action-adventure story, likely to be a movie soon. The author developed the characters sufficiently, without delving so deeply that it detracted from the story. It is hard to imagine any red-blooded American not enjoying this audiobook.
