I am a Company Rep in Central Qld. I travel around 60,000klms a year and rely on my Audiobooks to keep me company on my Country Trips!
I have become quite a fan of Vince Flynn's hero Mitch Rapp. Similarly, I concur with the reviewer who sang the praises of the Narrator, George Guidall. His delivery seems perfectly suited to the characters and is so good that one hesitates to try a book without him as narrator!
I liked the twist in this book and the build up & construction of the storyline.
Altogether, a good plot, well told!
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.
The action and the adventure in which we see not only Rapp involved with but also Kennedy. I mean, righteous, poisoning in the the Oval office. So freaking cool
Rapp-he just is so cool with a no BS attitude for politics or stupid things get in the way of taking care of business and making sure America is safe from foreign or domestic enemies
No extreme reaction except pure enjoyment and not wanting to turn off the audio and listen until the end of the book
As always Vince Flynn has taken Mitch for a ride and amazingly Mitch fixes the nation's problems and prevails in the end even though he may not personally get ahead or even come out even, for Mitch its all about America and making sure she's safe and sound and prospering.
From plot to action this Mitch Rapp thriller even brings Irene Kennedy into the action.I only wish we indeed had operatives who worked for America the way these fictional characters do. Brilliant...!
By ensuring that the antagonist - VP Ross a detractor of the CIA, remained arrogant and untouchable until the very end was well done. The CIA's leverage placed upon the Swiss bankers to play ball was outstanding. And finally, in showing the clandestine elements associated with Saudi Arabia and their money lines linked to terrorism was well crafted.
The climax with Kennedy's involvement.
Too much in it for that.
Brilliantly weaved together. I would have liked to have learned of the Saudi connection being disposed of in the end.
there was consistency throughout the book which kept my attention
no, but i enjoy the authors disdain for beaurocracy and politicians
haven't had a bad Vince Flynn book yet
Just do yourself a favor and buy ALL the Vince Flynn/Mitch Rapp books in order and listen to them that way. Great reading and suburb action. Among my favorites of all time - and I read and blog on many books.
The story was okay but good grief the language was terrible. I believe there was about one page with over 10 F*** words on it. I am disappointed as I know that Vince Flynn has swearing in his books but there was so much in this one that it was just distracting. I will pick up the next one in the series but if there is as much swearing in the first few chapters as this one then I will have to give up reading Mr. Flynn's books, and that is just too bad because he tells a really good story.
The only thing I like hearing more than my mother in law saying good bye is Guidall reading Flynn.
I am going through the series, this is definitely good. Can't say it is one of the best in the series thus far, but still good nonetheless. Recommend.
We were listening during our long drive and it kept us awake, alert, and captivated.
The suspenseful pace.
When Irene Kennedy served coffee to Mark Ross.
The 4 stars for the story was for the language and the sexual content. I've been listening to the other books in the series and this story had more of the foul language and explicit sexual scenes that were disturbing than entertaining. It certainly did not add to the story. I hope the next books will not be as bad.
For this class of reading material I would recommend it highly.
CIA Director Kennedy
She slipped in and out of many mind sets yet didn't waiver in her trust for Mitch Rapp.
His presentation allows me a visualization of each person and allows me to see them a a seperate character with different personalities.
It met my expectations
A good combination of writer and narrator can make a book interesting and worthwhile to read. This combination did just that. This was a book I didn't want to leave and couldn't wait to get back to.
