Very edgy, technical with amazing characters. Makes you laugh and also keeps you so on the edge of your seat that you may be tempted to pause the story to catch your breath.
Lloyd!! He is an immature, adolescent bully...no one with his temperament would be in his place of authority!
Just way too unbelievable....
The Gray Man is a unique character-no friends, no family, a true loner-it makes you root for him even more.
Okay story but a bit melodramatic and predictable. Main character is not believable. Maybe one too many twists and turns.
Most bad books you simply put down. But this book, "The Gray Man" was so bad that I listened as if it was truly an artful parody of a thriller. It keep reaching new highs in being ridiculous. The narrator sounded exactly like Ted Night (the judge in the movie Caddyshack) who died in 1986. Don't say that you weren't warned.
Thrillers that rely on the one super-hero, often a former spy or SEAL with clipped wings who has been nursing his wounds in retirement, usually require some kind of setup of circumstances that stretches the imagination. The setup in this case was exceedingly contrived. Getting chased by secret kill squads from 10-15 countries in a mad dash across Europe to beat a morning deadline for a contract signing set by a petulant dictator on another continent is as contrived as I have ever seen.
That backdrop and the fact that the narrator, in my view, seemed to be more of a novice than the experienced reader he apparently is, were two strikes against this. But the book was still a home run. It was clever, nail-biting, informative, well-researched, and, by that all important intangible measure, I could not put it down. A worthy listen, and highly recommended for those, like me, who love the thriller genre.
Really enjoy listening to these books sure am glad I was introduced to Audible. Best dollar I've ever spent.
First time I've listened to Mark Greaney and this character was pretty good. I enjoyed the book from beginning to end. Recommend it to anyone who likes none stop action.
I enjoyed the book. If you like the main spy thriller authors, you should like this one. One thing that is different in the Gray Man series is that plans go off track and the characters are not indestructable. Feels much more realistic. Reading the 3rd one now. I highly recommend reading this series in order. The story develops through the series.
One of the few books that I could wait see what happens next. One of the most action pack books I have listen to in ages.
A moral superman in an immoral profession. Well written and suspenseful, until of course, you realize none of this is really possible. Impressive body count, and hateful bad guys too.
Well read, though the voice of the french girl is a little, well, amusing.
Overall a fun listen and I would look for this combination of author and reader again.
