The narration is awful. The story was good but I just couldn't get into it.
Wonderful work. Love the author. Accustomed to the reader. Each work is so different from the book before it. Story is exciting and difficult to put down. The hero remains heroic and is never disappointing.
Very disappointing compared to the other books to this pojnt in the series. Way to long into the book before getting to any real action or excitement, silly dialog, ....uhggg...waste of time. Skip this one if you loved tge others .
I kept thinking this is either one of his early books inserted into the batting order at a late date or one written by someone else under his name. No, it has all the characters in there in the right time sequence......
Just a fluke or he just called this one in on a bad vacation to Mexico or something.
must listen to all books to enjoy the in and outs ups and downs and side to side keeps you guessing.
Amand Schultz is the worst narrator ever... he can't manage multiple voices, he reads like he's in junior high school. Ruined the story for me...
I listen to and have recently started to write reviews. I've found the reviews have helped me to select books.
I would recommend this audiobook to a friend because it's a book with the lead character, Scot Harvath, who is characterized as a true patriot. The heroics attached to all missions center around love for his country and his willingness to endanger his life as a man who love the USA. I would encourage my friend to read the previous novels in the series so that said friend would have a better understanding of Scot Harvath as a man and a soldier. The novels are suspenseful, exciting and have plots that can make you anxious and want to finish the books all in one sitting. The character's are well developed. The books give insight into the war that American's are now fighting in Afghanistan.
Yes, the plot did keep me on the edge of my seat. Scot Harvath was no longer working for the POTUS because he refused to assist him. He had to plan his own covert counterterrorisn mission. A mother wants her daughter, Dr. Julia Gallo, rescued from an Afghanistan prison. Harvath has to do something he has never done before. In order to rescue Dr. Julia Gallo, he has to find and free al-Queda mastermind, Mustafa Khan as ransom to the kidnappers of Dr. Julia Gallo. This book is titled, The Apostle, he will be the leader of a new mission, a mission that goes against everything he has ever believed in. However, there are other character's Scot can depend on to help him through this mission. He doesn't have to stand alone. The ending is fulfilling.
My favorite scene was when Dr. Julia Gallo was rescued from her captors.
The moment in the book that moved me was when Droid (sic), fought other's inappropriate actions against Dr. Julia Gallo, while she was in her prison cell.
There were many negative responses about The Apostle, because Scot Harvath did accept a request to rescue Dr. Julia Gallo without the backing of the POTUS. Remember, the POTUS refused to take any responsibility for Scot's mission and would not help him. The POTUS didn't tell Harvath that he couldn't do the mission, his solution was to remove himself. My point of view is that the POTUS was the traitor. I felt that the book was well written and explanatory why Harvath accepted the counterterrorism mission. Although reader's felt that Scot Harvath would now be considered a traitor to his country, if the book is read without preconceptions, his loyalty remains unblemished. He LOVES AMERICA.
Yes, it was a typical great story by Brad Thor and his twists are always a joy to unravel.
The realistic way his characters interact and the sad truth of how our goverment's political correctness costs the lives of our brave special forces men and women. When will we learn that you can't expect crazy people to act like we do??
He is the best narrator I have heard in the 40 some books I have listened to in the past year. Armand has a solid handle on shifting characters voices consisting on the fly - he is an exceptional actor.
The ending when Scott insisted the CIA keep his promises
