Like many others have said the action almost never stops. It's pretty fun to listen to since it's basically all gunfights and the like.
Yeah quite a bit. It's not a spoiler to say that true disaster is just around the corner.
None of the characters were particularly interesting.
There's some flag-waving that can be a bit heavy handed.
Only thing that bothered me is that the anatagonist is a very confusing character. There's nothing about his presentation that makes you believe that he's basically just waiting to destroy the entire world he lives in.
This is non stop action. Never repeats itself even though it's so long. I wanted to listen
in one sitting but its an impossible feat. Believe all the other good reviews when they say Ben Coes is the new Vince Flynn. The narrator gave this compelling story all the right inflections. I can't recommend this book to action/adventure lovers strongly enough. Worth !two credits!
Power Down might rank as my all time favorite audiobook, even beating my Tom Clancy classics.
My patriotism sucked me in at the formation of America's Energy Company, while I was on the edge of my seat with every unexpected twist in the plot.
When Dewey goes all in, even though he wants to get out.
Yes, and I've already purchased the next 3 books in the series.
A great read, though I didn't like the times when the terrorists won "a battle".
Love to get a book that I can't stop reading. I love page turners
Great book. I had it in my library and finally went for it. It was very thought out and not far fetched in the world we live in. I'm recommending it to others as a must read. Never a dull lull.
Minot even sure how I got this book but I hope there's more to come.
If you like Baliducci, Flynn, jack teacher this is right up there with the best. P
Very poorly written. conversation sounds like the author doesn't know how adults discuss. So much research to make things realistic is missing. A scene with a fire is totally wrong, I've been a fireman and it's nothing like this. The head people act like immature kids. You get the sense nothing has SOP's so each person wings it. The helicopter crash is unrealistic, bystanders stand under falling wreckage. Enough
I've been looking for a new Vince Flynn for awhile and think this comes close. They story was fresh and appealing and the characters were exciting and flawed. I'm looking forward to continuing the series.
As a listener I was a little disappointed with the pace of the narration but sped up the speed to 1.24 and enjoyed.
