This book will mess up your schedule as you won't find a place to pause! This guy just keeps moving from terrible situation to more terrible situations until the book ends! Great read.
Too many great moments to list
I started this series with the last book, Ballistic, and found that I liked the Gray Man enough to continue. So I saved The Gray Man for a loooong car ride, knowing that the non-stop action is a great way to move oneself down the road and stay awake. I was not disappointed!
You have to be prepared to suspend your disbelief in a major way, but this author is good enough that I wasn't groaning too much. However, I did groan when the thick fog helps the protagonist evade detection, yet doesn't seem to hinder the landing of a helicopter on a roof. Seriously?!
But that *nit* aside, if you enjoy fast paced action, this book is definitely worth the credit.
Tell us about yourself!
Surprisingly gripping stuff
Probably Dan Brown`s Deception Point, but this is much better. I don't normally read this kind of book, but I was impressed. Action, but not ridiculous. And plausible, death defying yet believable stuff, which for me is a huge plus. Deception point is packed with ridiculous exploits, but doesn't ever make you feel like it could happen, which the grey man does nicely.
The final rescue mission is pretty excellent.
Being everyone's target aint easy
Better, much better, than it sounds. Pleasantly surprised.
This book reminds me of the soldiers creed, "I will always place the mission first. I will never accept defeat. I will never quit. I will never leave a fallen comrade." The dedication and hard grit of the main character, Court Gentry, is what this book is all about. He is a soldier of sorts, but you'll need to read it to see what I mean. Some may say it's against insurmountable odds that he'll succeed in this mission, but that's what I like in the story, and that's what I want in a hero. This hero is a class act. Action packed, and a quick, engaging read. The narration was absolutely great, and I felt like I was really inside Court's head as he is going through all of these actions and emotions. Will be getting the next book!
I had difficulty initially getting into the story. It was action packed and fairly unbelievable, but I did finish it and it had an okay resolution. It follows the actions of a secret group of government assassins and "problem solvers", even when some of them go off the reservation.
I might. It was actually pretty exciting.
Well I'm a horror girl through and through so Cell by Stephen king is my best refrence.n
Maybe his accents sucked pretty bad but overall I think he did a great job.
If you like violent, macho cliche-ishly good action movies you've come to the right place!
Not the type of book I usually read but it still managed to keep me engaged for the duration. If you can find it on sale grab it!
HATE spoilers! Enjoy HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. Books outside HOT genre = books given to me to review
Sure, it is an action packed former CIA agent - on a mission to rescue a family in Europe.
Yes, the twists and turns are unexpected.
No, I have not - but he does an excellent job.
This is similar to Vince Flynn's work - though Flynn is the Master! ;)
Yes, and very soon. The are so many twists to the tale that it feels like you may have missed something in your haste to finish the book
When he realized that he can trust no one, especially his handler.
Yes, it made me very sad and very happy. Sad at his betrayal and happy that it did not turn him into a cold blooded killer
This is not a complicated book. It's a relatively straight-forward thriller, and is simply loads of fun. The action sequences feel cinematic, are well written and very exciting. Unlike in some novels, our hero, I was glad to hear, is not invincible, and he hurts, bleeds, and needs help from time to time. Not everything is completely realistic, but who cares?
I usually listen to audio-books while doing chores around the house, and I seriously looked forward to doing them, just to hear what happens to our hero next.
I don't have much more to say - it's a fun adventure, and I highly recommend it.
Very good story line but really gets a trifle unbelieviable as it races towards the end. The characters are good and believiable and narration excellent. A fair copy of "Vine Flynn"! I can recommend it to anyone who enjoys spy thrillers.
