I listen to and have recently started to write reviews. I've found the reviews have helped me to select books.
George Guidall was a wonderful narrator. I was going to not finish Blowback but because of Guidall, I decided not to give up. The novel was okay but I felt that there were too many cooks in the kitchen. There were too many minor characters that not only did not need to be included but took away from the plot of the novel. I became confused at times because the novel was jumping back and forth so often that I had to stop and think, where does this fit into the plot. Who are these people and how do they relate to to the part I've just finished and what is their role?
The prior novels were full of action and suspense. However, the Scott Harvath in Blowback was running in circles and surely did need a vacation. I don't think he knew what he was doing or where he was supposed to be.
I was able to put this novel down and occupy my time doing other things and would return later and start to listen again. I didn't want to miss listening to Blowback due to the fact that I had read all of the previous ones. Hoping Scott Harvath is given a better operation in the next novel in the series.
I love the Scot Harvath series but this one was expanded. Brad Thor includes history which I found very interesting and educational. I love the intrigue with all the action characters like Harvath .. Mitch Rapp, Jonathan Quinn etc. .. but this one really reflects research and understanding of the big picture. George Guidall doesn't hurt either since for me, he makes dry reading interesting. Books I wouldn't get through come alive when Guidall narrates.
I give it a 10.
" I have my mind... & a mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge." -T.L.
This book is not as good as the first couple, personally I don't think Thor can touch Flynn nor Rapp come close to Harvath, BUT Scott Harvath is still an interesting character & in reality I guess closer to the real thing because without help ALL THE TIME he would have ended up dying which in true life is true, but I like my espionage like Jason Bourne and Mitch Rapp... KICK BUTT!!!
The book had a few sections that seemed improbably even with the suspension u should have anyways... I'd recommend the 1st three books over this one if you are trying to use a credit
Although I love it when a book has the Saudi's getting it up the butt LOL
The story was well written
very much so
Yes and he does a great job
none to offer
Loved this book, the story really held me. I like Brad Thor's works in general but this has been my favourite so far.
George Guidall brought the book beautifully to life, as always.
I am a small business owner, writer and frequent traveler. Audio books are my constant companions
A little tired of the same story. Scot Harvath gets in trouble and some woman from somewhere in the world just happens to have the correct skill set to save him. At this point, Mr Thor should just write the book about the woman and leave Scot Harvath out of it. Or maybe, let the great Scot Harvath be the great Scot Harvath and leave the women out of it. Vince Flynn makes the same mistake. Clancy is still the King.
Audiobooks are a bit harder to learn to comprehend than print versions, but allow one to devour a book at a much faster rate. Love this audio book! Especially with George reading!
The story line is very good, but not as well developed as I like. I'm a details guy, but I suppose the editors cut these books drastically from the author's draft.
George's performances are always great. No one can read the Vince Flynn books like him, and he brings the same draw to the Thor novels.
This is a one sitting book if you can. For long trips, it can be beat.
Just love listing to audiobooks. Some of my favorite authors are Vince Flynn and Brad Thor
Yes, great story line and great narration
Yes. Buy never letting you set the book down once you started to read it
Yes. One of the better narrator out there
Yes it would.
I really have enjoyed all of Vince Flynn's books and started to listen to Brad Thors compilations. They are just as good as Flynn's books. This one was a great listen, i have really enjoyed it and would suggest it to anyone who likes terrorists getting shot.
I love to read espionage and criminal thrillers. My lifestyle doesn't allow time to sit and read so audio books is really an enjoyment.
The story line, like most of Brad Thor's books was very good. George Guidall puts special adventure to his way of telling the story, that no one matches.
Again Scot is having problems with his women.
The whole book was good
