This was my first time listening to a Vince Flynn novel. It will not be my last. This was a very entertaining spy thriller. If you like the Bourne series, this will be a welcome addition to your library. The narrator's voice is rugged yet expressive and almost perfect for this type of story telling. I was very entertained by this book.
I live on Puget Sound and my wife and I spend our summers on our boat out on the water.
The characters in the book mouth a lot of words like honor, courage, and values. The author has little of these has he does a thinly veiled smear of a number of Americans that do not share his political views. While the story line and action are certainly compelling, his Fox Network view of the world is a bit off putting.
This is the 6th audio book i have listened to,i can only say it was awesome,George should get an academy award for this narration,Great Great book
I must have a read a completely different book from most of the reviewers. This book was boring, boring, shallow, prosaic, full of stereotypes and ultimately unrealistic. I have liked the narrator with other books, but he was totally inappropriate for this type of novel. Every character sounded the same and most sounded like crotchety old men. I found the plot confusing and hard to follow. The author was unable to generate any empathy (or sympathy) for any of the characters. The ending was totally predictable and quite unsatisfying. This was my first, and last, Vince Flynn book
The Mitch Rapp series is EXCELLENT and I recommend it to anyone that love the USA and wants to believe we would do the right thing when is comes to our safety. We MUST have a MITCH RAPP in our intelligence groups or we will be domed. Our politicians CANNOT and WILL NOT get the job done because they only care about their own future and being politically correct.
Excellent job bringing Mitch's past to the present. Should grab new readers and give them the "start" they need to jump into the Mitch Rapp series. Well played Mr. Flyyn.
This novel is boring and out of sync with all the other novels with Mitch Rapp. His story line had built over the years. But this, the story line about the CIA training is fantasy. The plot was too predictable and where did the suspense go. F___this and F___ that Stan Hurley. The profanity is too extreme and Stan Hurley’s character is just too bizarre. American Assassin reminded me of why I prefer English novels. This novel was a waste of my time. I gave up half way though, then after a three week break I thought to myself, ‘It’s got to get better’, but no it never did. It will be years before I try another Vince Flynn novel if ever. This is a two thumbs down book and I’m sorry to say I listened to the whole things and I’m worse off for doing so. I’m raving against the book!
Vince Flynn did a nice job filling in the gaps on how Mitch Rapp became Mitch Rapp. I enjoyed this book as I have with all of his novels.
I am now hooked on the Mitch Rapp series. I really enjoyed this audio book and story. So much so that I have started ready the entire Mitch Rapp series. I wish more of the Mitch Rapp books were UNABRIDGED.
