Sure, it may be a little over the top, but it's a cool story and a cool character. The world's top assassin is on the run. He is a mystery to most, legend to others, feared by all. The hit-man with a conscience. He kills people, but they were all bad.
Really, this is worth it. However, it is probably the best in the series, don't wish too hard for sequels as good.
Just love listing to audiobooks. Some of my favorite authors are Vince Flynn and Brad Thor
Yes it is fast pace and never let you go
The Gray Man. One of my new favorite characters
All of it!!!!!
The hole book!
To get a better idea of my background. I am a working class white male in my forties. I love good fiction, and I love smart books. I have drifted towards a lot of European writers like Reginald Hill, Val McDermid.,Etc....
I liked the character. The story had a lot of potential. It's a shame. Why did the guy have to be half dead through half the book - Performing miracales. There's story lines so impossible it can't be true - And then there's this. It could have been the same story - With the guy just kicking butt. If the Gray man got hurt anymore - He would have been sewing on his own head. That's my take.
It was ok. Was the most 'action packed' book I've listened to. Will make a good action adventure movie.
It was predictable, but still interesting.
The ENTIRE book was read at 'high intensity' level. It seemed it never came down. Everything was 'edge of your seat', even if it wasn't. For me that dilutes the real nail biter parts. Since this is a series I might try another book and see if I still get the same feeling about it. Not sure if Snyder always reads like that or not - hope not. But then again, I felt the same way about Frank Muller, then grew to love hearing him read.
Without giving away too much, of course the kids and the girl.
Gripping, Exciting, Entertaining
From start to finish I was hooked, did not take pages to get into things. The ending did not leave one with more questions than answers. Brilliant pace. This is my first ever action novel and was surprised at how much I loved it. I am hooked and will read all the books in this series.
This is my first listen to jay Snyder and he is brilliant. There is so many characters in this book and he has does an great job, I had to smile a bit at the female voices. Would look out for more books narrated by him.
Both! The sarcasm and dry humor is awesome.
Such an awesome action packed book! Loved it and want to start reading it again.
Gripping story, but non stop action is perhaps a little much. Good if you like continuous and violent action with a high body count. Narrator is really pretty bad. His voice for the main character is fine, but his British (and other) accents are so atrocious that it really takes away from the action.
This was the dumbest story I have ever read.
Each chapter seems to end with a cliff - hanger only to be resolved at the last second in the next.
I wouldn't waste my eyes on another Mark Greaney book.
Fast, fast pace - hard to stop listening
The Ghostwalker series by Feehan; Brad Thor's work; Both suspenseful and full of alpha heroes
No - will look for him now! He was great, voice overs were 90% perfect until he tried to impersonate an 8 year old little GIRL - that didn't sound too great, BUT she didn't have much of a speaking part so it was okay!
The whole thing was great - too many to make note on just one
If you need an assassination expert, you contact the best; a man known and feared by all as ???the Grey Man???. THE GREY MAN aka Court Gentry is a legend in the black ops business, a former CIA operative until someone ???burned??? him - he is now a freelance operator who takes his contracts from one man. Unfortunately, his latest hit has caused a huge conglomerate to want his head and money is no object; Court has a $20 million bounty on his head to be delivered in a cooler!??????
*** I really love to discover new authors, and after reading THE GREY MAN by Mark Greaney you can bet, I have found a new favorite and am going to follow this author very carefully. Right from the get go Greaney had me on the edge of my seat and kept it up throughout. Just as our hero Court had no time to rest fighting numerous ???wet??? squads as he traveled to save the lives of two 8 year old twin girls, (granddaughters of his one time friend) there was no rest for the reader as well. It is a great thing when either listening or reading a book you begin to feel the stress your hero goes through right along with them. ??????Back to the plot -our hero Court is a killer, but with a moral code in that he believes the person he has killed leaves the world a better place after their demise. Court, an American, was once a CIA operative and until a ???wet??? job went so bad, he believed that what he did, was for the good of his country. Unfortunately, now the CIA has a shoot on sight order on him in which the author uses to emphasize just how alone, Court is in his life. ??????
The conglomerate that is after Court is all-powerful and has billions at stake should they not be able to bring Court???s head on a platter to the brother of his last assassination target. The different characters Greaney created who were the villians in THE GREY MAN were expertly crafted in that this reader really, wanted to jump into the story and give one of them a whack - he was that nasty!
??????Bottom Line: Author Greany created in THE GREY MAN an incredible new hero, who survived numerous teams of killers intent on eliminating him as well as probably the one person he trusted the most in the world. Thrills, chills and high explosive suspense was the order of the day and Greaney provided it in abundance in this impressive debut! Highly recommended - this is an author to watch!
This book was fun to read, reminded me of the "Ryan verse"! Mark Greaney also Co-wrote the lates "ryan verse' book Locked on.
I most likely will not get another book from the author. Ridiculous story and the main character is a super human that cannot die. It left me more annoyed than entertained.
