I don't know how to read, but I know how to listen.
George Guidall is the best.
by the way I'm Saudi National. I think Mr. Flynn did well capturing the saudi culture and mentality, however he needs to consult Saudis to perfect the story more :)
I will be happy to assist ... of course free of charge :P
The last scene. so moving
yes. almost cry and laughed many times
i suggest that the publisher mention and the end of the audiobook that this book is Book 6 part of Mitch Rapp series and followed by Act of Treason (book 7) . i'm using my cellphone to listen to book. but after I finish i don't know what book is the next.
to Mitch Rapp. I need a 12 step program. I can't get enough of this character. This is my 2nd unabridged Vince Flynn in one month. (I got Transfer of Power, only came abridged, but don't recommend the abridged version. You need the full force of the entire written novel, imho.) I got this after Rush Limbaugh recommended "Extreme Measures" - loved it - and am scrambling to listen to all the UNABRIDGED Vince Flynn I can.
BUY THIS BOOK!
First, this is an excellent thriller overall. Gripping, well paced, solid character development, and more accurate in the factual elements than many. It's definitely worth the listen.
Minor glitches: Flynn seems to forget having covered things, and occasionally repeats himself. Like virtually every writer on the planet, he describes the smell of Cordite in the air following gunfire, while Cordite hasn't been used in modern ammunition for MANY years. There are a couple other issues, but they're minor and certainly not enough to spoil a great read.
The book was so exciting that I hated to stop listening. This is a real thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat!! I will definitely look for more books from this author...preferably unabridged, because I wouldn't want to miss a word.
I enjoyed the story and the reader.
Mitch Rapp, of course!
I enjoyed his cadence and inflections with the different characters.
I listened to this book while traveling and although it wasn't in one sitting, it made me look forward to the next part of my trip so I could continue the story!
I am a registered nurse and a father of four great kids. I live in a rural part of Oregon and love it. I enjoy books, but Sci-Fi Fantasy has allows been the ones I reach for more than others.
Yes, the Mitch Rapp series is easily recommendable to anyone who enjoys suspense and spy like novels. Even though to action is not "life-like" in reality being in an altered universe its okay. If you like Bourne or Bond you will like Rapp.
Rapp's setting up of Ross. The way he and Irene hid some of the evidence related to the main event in the story and then for Irene to have a press conference related to her resignation as CIA director only to throw mudd on the Vice President-elect's face is just funny.
Then for Irene to have the balls enough to poison he in a meeting with the President and Secretary of State in the Oval Office at the White House - awesome, just awesome.
Easy, Clear, and Concise
If you like you can get away with fixing an election...think again.
The Mitch Rapp chronicles continue well with this book. Good story with some interesting twists that I didn't see coming. The performance is good as well.
Seeking the Truth
I rarely read or listen to a book twice, but I might make an exception with Consent to Kill. It has everything a first-rate thriller contains: a good pace; the perfect narrator (George Guidall); the pompous Director of National Intelligence who, along with his powerful and unethical cohorts, will stop at nothing to fire Mitch Rapp from the job he lives for; the nearly perfect CIA Director Irene Kennedy, Rapp's boss, who knows Rapp's strengths but is forced to cover for his weaknesses, perhaps to her own detriment; the two-person team of assassins who are equal to Rapp in intelligence, instincts and ability to kill and who are paid millions to take Rapp down; and the wife who is Rapp's equal in marriage and for whom Rapp begins to see a life outside of chasing terrorists around the globe as his body starts to forsake him from the wear-and-tear he has forced upon it year after year.
There are several good characters in this novel, but, after all, the story is about Mitch Rapp, so he has to be the favorite. He is an assassin, straight-up, and rarely conflicted about what he does because he so believes in his cause and his country. He is not a touchy-feely kind of man trying to get in touch with his feminine side; he kills the bad guy and then moves on to the next. But his relationship with his wife shows a side we forget about sometimes: that Rapp is a principled and honest man who wants to love and be loved, just like the rest of us.
The very last scene with the two-person assassination team.
The Heart of the Assassin.
This is my 8th in the series and this one made me root for Mitch to get even. Well read, George is easy to listen to and adds enough vocal differentiation to his presentation to make it interesting. I always find it difficult, no matter who the narrators are to not laugh at least once at the execution of the opposite sex's voice. However on this one George does it pretty well. For me, the tell tale sign of a good book and read is if I don't want to stop listening even after I reach my destination.
