Of all the books up to this point in the series, they have tied up the loose ends and provided closure on the book. Good endings, problems solved, resolutions. This book, has a terrible ending. It really ties up the sub-plots and characters, but it leaves the main plot of the book wide open. Very disappointing.
Love the take on the Muslim faith and the possibility of a lost revelation.
I love all the characters. It has some great writing and all the characters have good depth and back-story. You believe in them. The ending is what was bad.
Yes. Seems like a great narrator.
Some of the historical research was interesting.
Thor makes sure we know Scot Horovath spells his name with one T for no apparent reason. Maybe to make him different, like Cindi with an I back in the 80's.
He also reveals Horovath as hard struck but compassionate because he chose to stay by his amazingly perfectly hot, 10 year younger girlfriend after she undergoes a facial surgery which is barely noticeable. Yes, yes. Poor Scot with one T. What a trooper.(sic)
Horovath pays his utility bills on time because he takes pride in it? OK. We all pay our bills on time. But to take pride in it? It's almost as if Thor suggests the Utility company owes thanks to our protagonist for keeping up his contract. At this point the character started to sound a bit dorky.
The protagonist has echos of Dirk Pitt, but more douchie, immature and under-developed.
And I'm not a fan of Dirk Pitt novels.
I think Thor is trying too hard to "Man Up" this character. When in reality, good men do not hold unreasonable grudges. Or sulk in front of the US President.
It was all just a bit too silly for me. Not a particularly smart or clever or novel.
Just think weekly T.V. cop drama. Of how they lack on all levels, but try to make
up for it in drama. This novel is comparable to that, but with no drama.
No spoilers, but the end of the book was just like Disney would have done it.
A text book predictable sappy happy ending. And then an extra happy ending.
It had me rolling my eyes.
I never have listened to this author before and will not buy any more of his books.
I listen to and have recently started to write reviews. I've found the reviews have helped me to select books.
I have never read The Last Patriot in the printed version. Having listened to the audio edition, I feel that the printed version could not compete.
The character development, action and great plot kept me wanting to listen without stopping.
I've listened to many of George Guidall's performances and his narration gives life to the character's and so much more. I can't compare this performance to other performances because I've found nothing to complain about. His narration is always top notch to my ears.
I enjoyed the history lessons about Thomas Jefferson. The way the author portrays Scot Harvath's love and honor of the USA always reminds me how wonderful the USA is.Using black ops to bring a mission to completion makes me stop and think. Maybe the USA could incorporate their own black ops to help them to settle many of the conflicts facing us today. Brad Thor created another great plot that provided me with another great listen. Keep them coming. It's difficult to understand why the fundamentalist Muslim's interrupt the Koran as they do, no mercy for the "infidel's," Islam is the only true religion. War has been with us since the beginning of time, God and religion always the reason to continue fighting. I suppose, living in peace, is another myth.
I have loved the whole series. But this is my absolute favorite. I have listened to several series, I believe this is the best action one. I hate that it is half way over.
Just love listing to audiobooks. Some of my favorite authors are Vince Flynn and Brad Thor
Yes I would but would have love todo both
Any Vince Flynn books
Yes. All his books are great
No I didn't
Brad Thor's books were recommended to me by a friend. I don't read fiction novels much but she insisted. I have to say that I was captivated the entire time I was listening!! I will be listening to more Brad Thor novels!
Guidall gives masculine characters masculine voices, great accents, and emotion. Thor writes an entertaining, fast paced novel. Add them together, a perfect combo.
The narrator saved this book. The story was so predictable and did not have any unique twists or characters.
Not my usual cup of tea but I would probably read anything the George Guidall reads, he is amazing. and therefore I was pleasantly surprised when the story turned out to be as good as it was.
Didn't read it
Wondering if the Thomas Jefferson info was correct.
Yes, but the same voice all the time can get confusing.
Great read. Loved the info about Jefferson I didn't know. I assume it was the truth.
