I would definitely recommend this to a friend. You empithize with the Gray Man, and the action of the story is constant. A great listen.
Cort Gentry. He's a contract killer, but he's also way more than that!
This was my first Jay Snyder experience. He's a good narrator. He get's into the story and conveys the excitement well.
Absolutely! I listened to it in 45min to 1 hour increments on my way to and from work, but I could have sat and listened to the whole thing. It's great!

Gray Man - he's contemporary yet idealistic.

great reader. great voice for the character
endless action, little wasted words, story was action-packed with constantly moving story line.
the ending, which was a fore-gone conclusion, but still enough twists and turns to keep it interesting
The Gray man
you'd take out the cuss words. The plot is so weak and the story so unrealistic, only a 12 year old boy could enjoy this.
This book reads like it was written by a teenager who read and then tried to replicate Barry Eisler's John Rain series. Its so corny its almost funny. Here is an example: the main character, the gray man, is described by the narrator as having motivations beyond simple comic book stimuli, and in the next sentence the gray man's motivations are summarized to the effect that "some dudes just need to die". I don't know what all the other reviewers are raving about? Maybe I'm too old at 42, but I do really like action thrillers. This one is just ridiculous. If hearing the 36 yr old main character and supposed top assassin in the western hemisphere repeatedly call people "Dude" bothers you, than look elsewhere. If that doesn't bother you, maybe you'll like this.
I understand unrealistic plots and expect them in this genre of books. I want to be a little wowed by the characters amazing ability to get out of a situation, but this book took it to a level that made it hard to stay in the book. I get the want and need for non-stop action, but by making the hero take as much damage as the author did, I spent too much time questioning the premise and ability of him to continue rather than enjoying the plot.Switching Characters also doesn't mean you switch writing style for those characters. Just because you are writing about an 8 year old girl, doesn't mean you have to write every line dedicated from her perspective. By switching to the words "Mommy and Daddy" whenit wasn't even clear that it was from her perspective as well as other colloquial aspects of an 8 year old the author pulled me out of the story mentally.
