I was starting to get withdrawals after having listened to the last Vince Flynn book in the series (twice). I tried many highly regarded authors but none of them stuck out for me. Then I found the Gray Man series. The first book was great and this is even better. I have already added all the Gray Man series books to my audible library and can't wait to get in my car at 5am every morning for the long commute!
The storyline is fantastic. The main character is awesome. Jay Snyder is a pleasure to listen to. Highly recommended.
loved this book. the facinating facts about politics and history, gave me new understanding of aid organizations, relief work, and most of all the terrifying descriptions of gangs or mobsters, whether in Russia, Africa, or Europe - new insight. Fight scenes were realistic. The voices of the characters added much to the story. women, young foreign men, old Russian mobster and so on. even the voices of american CIA and military men all unique, vivid, believable. I forgot my worries- transported to another world view. The author would -at crucial intervals -give a summation of previous events which in this complicated story line I found most helpful.
I was a little disappointed the Gray Man changed from being a total badass to being a drug addict & romance. The book seemed more about his addiction & romance than about his mission. I know that addiction happens but if I want to read about that I would buy a book about someone's struggle with addiction.
At the beginning, I was pretty skeptical that I would not like this one as much as his first book. The first one is still my favorite, but this one is a close second and I'm about to download his next one. I am definitely hooked! ..lots of twists and turns.
I was not enjoying the long and wussy self pity episodes.
A real warrior shrugs that kind of crap off and reinforces himself with confidence building internal dialog.
These kind of episodes of self recriminations dominated this book and he also had much less combat episodes where he dominated. .
I hope the next book has a lot less crybaby wussy man and much more butt kicking Gray Man.
The narrator gets a 5 star rating for a perfect job
