Action, suspense, it has it all. Brings you into the world of politics to provide depth to the story, while keeping it exciting and lively. Thanks Vince, you've done it again!!!
Long commutes have turned me into a dedicated Audible fan. Looking at my stats I can't believe I have 825 titles in my Library.
Mitch Rapp is the Mike Hammer of the 21st century. A no nonsense arm of justice that can't be stopped. If you, like me grew up on Mickey Spillane/Mike Hammer thrillers you know what I mean. Vince Flynn knows how to write a thriller that keeps you glued to your seat. All I can say is keep'em coming Vince.
You sure will not fall asleep with this one. There were places I had to skip but it was an excellent book.
This is an enjoyable book to listen to and it keeps your interest for the most part. However, all the characters are one-dimensional and simplistic. There are no suprises- people do exactly what you would expect them to do, and so the plot is limited to following the action. The action is good, although it makes up only a small part of the entirety. For reasons beyond my comprehension, the author thinks the reader will be interested in the details of changing a diaper. This description was quite detailed and accurate, and suggests the author had direct experience. How nice. Pity he didnt put the same effort into his characters.
Great book, couldn't stop listening. Only problem is that you have withdrawals when it ends. Hoping for the continued adventures of Mitch and friends.
I couldn't wait to listen to this book. At the end I had the feeling that in his next book, Mitch Rapp is going to "throw in the towel" due to the policiticians and the PC environment. Mike Nash is probably going to be the next leading character for additional books.
This book had a sub story line in the character of Mike Nash and his home life. Although this added pages and chapters it did not do much for the story line, other than show the dedication of the men and women who really fight the war.
Another good book from Mr. Flynn but is not as focused on the story line as he was in the first or second book.
Still, for the fans of Flynn, the thrill continues.
Must like the main characters, be intelligently written and feel like I learned something at the end.
My first novel by this author, but finished it wishing I had saved my credit. The author repeatedly bludgeons the reader with over-simplified and stereotypically ideas - e.g. all politicians are corrupt or useless (yawn) etc etc Yes, we know that extreme times call for extreme measures, but this gray area is never fully fleshed out in the characters who, by the way, are very two dimensional. Instead, we are repeatedly beaten down by how our CIA types need a free hand to practice torture because the bad guys don't follow the same rules. For those who want character development, well developed plot lines and something close to intellectual stimulation - don't bother with this one. It belongs on the 4.99 sale rack at the local drugstore.
I am a big Vince Flynn fan. However, the narrator's voice made me feel as though I was listening to a 'lifeless' story with my hero and all around him sounding as tired old men. Bummer!
