Grey Man was a wild ride that kept me turning the pages and holding my breath. In this one, the Grey Man makes bizarre decisions that completely shatter the willing suspension of disbelief. His supporting protagonist female character is shallow and completely unbelievable, and Jay Snyder reads her in a voice of 10 year old girl which actually fits the character quite well further adding to the disjointed and amateurish feel of the book. Instead of deepening and developing the characters, they become shallow and unbelievable. I'm really disappointed as I counted the days until the next Grey Man novel.
I am an avid eclectic reader.
I liked the "Gray Man" better. I was disappointed that they have made him a drug addict. I think this is way out of character for a skilled assassin. The constant action going from one crisis to another keeps one glued to the Ipod. Looking forward to another book. Jay Snyder did a good job with narration.
I've enoyed all of the "Gray Man" books. They follow Court Gentry (the Gray Man), a former CIA assassin who makes money using his former CIA skills. They are all fast paced, not hard to follow, great listens.
The amount of detailed story telling is never lost among all the action in this book. It is well crafted and very enjoyable. The story is exciting and it's really hard to break away from it.
I enjoyed the dialog between all the players, it's intelligent and cunning.
Jay Snider is by far my favorite narrator. He's been perfect in every book I've head, and this one is no different.
This book ties in perfectly with the first one, I like it when the stories and characters are linked to the first book (and previous mentioned experiences) it adds volumes of depth to both the story and the characters.
This novel was a great follow up to The Gray Man. Everything you loved about this first novel is here in this one, with a little somthing extra. Court Gentry is definitely one of my favorite characters. I can't get enough of this guy. This story opens up with just enough talk to set up Gentry's mission, and then the action takes off running and it doesn't stop until it's over. I'm moving on to the next Court Gentry novel. I just wish this series could go on and on.
