The story is good enough for me to check out the next book in the series.
It really took awhile to get use to this narrator. It was not the manly voice I was thinking for for this kind of spy novel.
Yes, because if that person liked thrillers yes!
The twists and turns!
He brought great narrtortion to the book, it starts off slow but picks up!
Over the years, I've enjoyed the "kick-butt" stories involving Mitch Rapp. While he's always been a pretty straight-forward character, I've always felt that Flynn had a backstory in mind. This is his backstory. Chronologically, it's the first of the Rapp series.
I especially enjoyed learning more about Irene. She's more of a character in this story than a cut-away "oh, Mitch, you're really a good person under all that bad-ness" reminder.
I am a big fan of Vince Flynn and the Mitch Rapp character. I advise listeners to start with one of the later books and come back to this later for the back story. Had I started with American Assassin I may well have missed out on the excellent later books.
Only as a third or later book by Flynn. The only real thing about American Assassin that kept my attention was an interest in understanding Mitch Rapp's beginnings. Without the knowledge of knowing where the series is headed and the unique character Mitch Rapp becomes, this book would have been quite dull.
He is a very good narrator. This is on par with others.
I've been searching for a 4 or 5 star read for almost two years now and finally I stumbled upon Vince Flynn. Great book, great narration, I'm starting book two in the Rapp series tomorrow and I can't wait.
This was my first Vince Flynn and I thought this would get me into the series but I found it was too much information and just not enough action I think all the action was in the last two chapters and then it ended.......................???????
Post apocalyptic listener with some thrillers mixed in. Follow me on twitter at @drewsant
Well written with intrigue and action around every corner. The prequel to the Mitch Rapp series is a great spy thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Being new to the series I started at the beginning even though I know this is one of his newer books, and I will surely be continuing on. The characters are bad-ass as they whip through craft but there is just enough dark humor to make you smile every once in a while. Highly recommended for lovers of spy thrillers.
Performance was great from his accents to all his different voices, he really captured the characters.
Interesting plot about a bereaved man, who becomes an assassin to avenge the terrorist-caused death of his fiance. The best part is George Guidall's narration. Superb as always!
I found this book by accident and am glad I did, good nariation, amazing book, it had me hooked in the 1st 20 min, when I got home I got 3 more of Flynn's books.
Very well written and attention to detail awesome. Very reminiscent of Clancy's 1st six. For some of us, it is about the attention to detail.
Very much so, by building the story line step by step. Read more like it was Flynn's 1st book he had written then his 11th in the series. He will be missed.
