What a great waste of time. The characters had no depth, the story was boring and the simplicity of the story was suitable for a 1st grader and not an adult. Finally, the narration was, at best, mediocre.
The choice of vocabulary was very poor. One would think that a professional writer could do much better.
This the first book from Audible that I have purchased that I wish I could return. Normally their book library is very good.
"If it wasn't for bad luck, the Gray Man wouldn't have any luck at all"
Mr. Greaney has created a character who succeeds even though he has been shot, knifed, survived an explosion, cut his feet, lost half his blood, while evading or killing close to 100 trained assassins.
The author could have made the story more plausible if the hero didn't try to storm a fortified castle while bleeding out.
Fast paced thriller/action story about professional killer for hire. Some aspects of the story are a bit 'superhuman,' but all in all still a fun read.
Say something about yourself!
Look, it's not gonna change your life, but it's a whole lot of fun. The bad guys are really bad. The odds are extremely long, and our hero kicks some major butt. Can't wait to start on the next in this series!
I can see why the reviews are not so good for this first book.Glad I started with the second. If I did know better would have wondered if the book was a parody . Cort just sustained too many injuries to be believable. Greaney got better and better with this series so would advise starting with On Target then go back later to The Gray Man. It is not necessary for the subsequent storyline.
So glad that I found this series. Quality writing is so scarce nowadays. While waiting for the next "Cleaner" book to be released in audio, the Gray Man will keep me from trolling the boards hoping to stumble upon a better-than-ok thriller.
This is my first
Yes but less supper human power
The guy has so many wounds and they just keep coming, Even a super human would have not been able to make it as far as he did with all of his wounds. The knife to the gut with the Korean was too much to believe. Too much fist too fist and not enough guile and whit.
