Workaholic who makes time for great books.
Brad Thor has not written a book I didn't like yet. Great story, great plot, and character development.
George does many different authors in this genre including Daniel Silva. I enjoy them enormously, and have a hard time when he doesn't read the next book in a series I am used to hearing him in.
Absolutely. I usually listen in the car or early in the morning, but I wanted to listen to this book straight through. I hate being a grown and having to work!!!!!
The story was really slow for my taste and kind of boring. i was only able to finish because i was listening while doing errands around the house
The story was entertaining enough.
I was intrigued by the historical aspects of the story but ultimately felt let down a bit.
I have gone through all the Scot Harvath series in order to this point. This one I felt was a much weaker plot and story. I felt like it was going to lead somewhere else and it didn't. Not a lot of action or really any plot twists. Kept getting the thought of the movie National Treasure but with Scot Harvath.
Not a bad listen by any means but not up to par with the others to this point.
Retired military with assignments to Saudi Arabia; Germany; Italy and Turkey. Duties include: Operations; Intelligence; Inspector General
Enjoyed how they reminded us that were battling Muslim Extremist since Thomas Jefferson era and how it tied into today's Marine Corp
The struggle were dealing with today and it wasn't started on 9/11/01 but with muslim terrorist at the beginning of America and how our current Government is making the same mistakes with dealing with the problem today as they did in the 1800s
Several of the characters sounded like the same person in this book. However, Scot Harvath is the reason I continue to purchase the series, both on audio and hardback
No, lot of history in this one and I kept repeating chapters to help educate myself on history I forgot/ignored during my early days in school
Although they tie in to past books where they can, people should really start with from the first of the series and move forward. I started with Hidden Order and got hooked by wanting to read the back story of the character
I am a voice over artist with work in tv, film, radio and commercials all over the world.
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.
