Great introduction to Mitch Rapp. A true hero that you can relate with.
Great job by the narrator. I didn't want it to end.
Books worth the money are those biographies about our Founding Fathers. Or THE LONG WALK and/or UNBROKEN Try THE LONG WALK a
A book less boring, implausible, ridiculous
Scott Brick doing it, but even he couldn't pull this one out.
I'm not an intellectual, so this sort of (expletive deleted) must be what intellectuals enjoy.
Waste of a credit
Yes; and this is only so because of the narrator, George Guidall. If I had a choice between reading the novel and listening to his narration, I'd choose the narration.
Stan Hurley was my favorite character; in spite of being totally obnoxious and as ornery a grizzly with bowel cramps, he is noble and kind hearted in his own unique way. And his sheer cussedness in the face of death and torture both unnerving and admirable at once.
I've listened to another Mitch Rapp story and also Gates of Fire, by Steven Pressfield, which I most definitely recommend if you like ancient history. Guidall brings characters to life; He is up there with my favorite: Steven Pacey.
This story is on par with his other performances: excellent.
The book made me laugh; listening to Stan Hurley's diatribes was vastly entertaining to me; I especially enjoyed the inner monologue that he had when sparring with Mitch for the first time, when he realized that he might have to reassess his initial opinion of Mitch, the "college puke".
One great adventure
I don't normally listen to these types of books but this one surprised me. I plan on listening to more of VF's books for sure!!
Entertaining, action, riot
Stan, the trainer. Grizzled, stubborn and had me laughing out loud. Awesome.
Definitely hard to put down.
When's the movie? Sign me up.
You will want this book so that you understand the history and beginning of Mitch Rapp. The story is intriguing and will certainly keep your attention. (I went back and get this one, so listened out of order, but it put alot into perspective) And of course, George Guidall is definitely among the top 5 narrators ever, so this is a Win Win! Get it and enjoy,.
I am hooked on Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp
Action, awesome, exciting
Rapp is the spy that I hope American has
Hurley tells Kennedy about his sparing with Rapp and wants to know where she found Rapp "Let just speed things up and see if I have what it takes"
American greatest weapon
Story does an excellant job of holding attention. Author makes you bond with Rapp.
Mitch Rapp first then Stan.
I never read a Vince Flynn story before and downloaded this one because it got many great reviews. Although I found the story most time entertaining, it lacked depth in character building and plot line. Some characters, like the bully instructor was, more a caricature than a real person. Perhaps the characters are more fleshed out if you have read the other books, that come chronologically after this book. But as a starter it did not quite work for me.
The narrator did a great job and made me stay throughout the book.
This rates very high. I was familiar with the character of Mitch Rapp and is adventures, so it was great to see how he became the super-secret and deadly CIA operation/ assasin he is in today. The story never dragged, and always kept moving forward, leaving you wondering how was this going to work out.
Stan Hurley was my favorite this go around. Such a tough, nasty guy, he could be the only man to help make Mitch Rapp the man he would be. Plus, the narrator did an excellent job of bringing this character to life.
This was my first time hearing Mr. Guidall, and I would highly recommend him and cannot wait to hear another one of his narrations.
Most definitely. I wish I could have!
