Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Trip's cool though. Use Audible to make gym-training sane... And rip my imagination.
When the reading first actually skipped in mid scene to another, I thought it was my iPod. When it happened a second time - I downloaded a second copy, trashed the first and discovered the second was equally defective. Yes this is a savagely edited abridgement. Yes the text editing carves away the entire supporting structure for the plot. Yes that stinks. But... in addition someone may have intentionally attempted to shorten the production in post processing by snipping away part of the actual reading.
Frankly I'd ask for my money back, but I'm thinking that's not an option. This is the first product I've purchased from Audible which was technically defective (as opposed to the buyer-beware risk of buying any book which may disappoint re. content alone). My advise is DON'T PURCHASE THIS BOOK! I shall not download any more abridged Audible books. P.S. I have listened to a number of Vince Flynn books, all unabridged and enjoyed each of them.
plot, character development
honestly, I am listening to all Flynn's novels, so the plots run together...
mispronounced some words, romance scenes sounded weird
I'm not sure if it was the rendition or Flynn's writing, but I didn't think the romance/sex parts were believable or well done...the political intrigue, espionage, and military action is captivating and entertaining.
suspense and reality of the story
other Mitch Rapp stories, gritty and believable
characters are a little weak
yes really pleased
I wish Audible had the un-abridged form of the book. The abridged book is a little too choppy and seems to be missing sections of the full size book.
Okay, these stories are fiction but really! A man fires from the top of the Hotel Washington to the roof of the White House and no one confronts him? The plot is just not well thought through or well executed.
Vince Flynn and Mitch Rapp are my favorites but the narrator on this one ruined the listen. If you are out there Vince, PLEASE stick to George Guidall.
good book and it will hold your interest.
