This is a knockout piece of work! I truly love this author and this series. Each installment is always action packed, fast paced, and with good characters and plots. The issues are also relevant to today. Vince Flynn IS the Robert ludlum of the century. In fact I have stopped reading books from Ludlum's standin writers to his current series. I only wish that Audible would carry the rest of this series in unabridged form. all are great reads and this one is no exception.
This was a fun, quick and great spy novel. I was amazed at the concise, accurate characterizations. Well researched but not boring. Reader was excellent (which is 60% of any audiobook). Never dull. My tastes are rather eclectic, but everyone will like this classic espionage paperback. Get it today.
You'll enjoy it if you like Ludlum----I'm happy I found Flynn & his character Mitch Rapp--Now I have several hours of fast past reading ahead of me--Hope I can keep up with all the twist & emotional turns-- George Guidall is a good reader and adds a lot to the overall effect
A very good listen. I only wish I would have read the previous book first. The only cons I have with this is the narrator tends to stay on accent even after a character speaks. The author also tends to repeat himself, though I only can think of twice. The story however, is the main point, and in today's political climate it is refreshing to hear a story about people with courage to face down a threat...
Totally unbelievable, macho, gung-ho, boys own nonsense! Just what this sort of fiction should be. Well written, well read, I enjoyed every minute of it.
Great book with great narration. This has only happened twice now, but I was late for work because I sat out in the parking lot for over a half hour to complete a particularly good section of the book. I look forward to more books from Vince Flynn.
Narration is great, but story is not that satisfying. Even though this should be realistic because it's in the present day, it doesn't hold together as well as something by Follett or other thriller-writers. Without giving away the plot, all I can say that the crucial event in the book depends on behaviors that don't fit with what we've been told about the two main characters to that point (about their paranoia and professionalism). There are a lot of unnecessary and silly cliches. For example, the heroes love their gas guzzlers although they are focused on Saudi oil money as the root of anti-American terrorism.
Stereotyped characters, gratuitous violence, ideology about as subtle as an atomic bomb. The first audio book I haven't actually got all the way through.
