Flynn's earlier books are not nearly as good as his later ones and this is a perfect example. The plot was a little weak and basically split between two unrelated story lines. The narration was just as good as the later books. George Guidall does an outstanding job.
listened to this series first from library downloads which were abridged. Do not care for abridged books but that's all available at the library. The narration however in the abridged was superb and certainly makes this one a poor second. Mr. Guidall's voice and interpretation of the characters is great, but his delivery is just irritating after listening to
Armand Schultz. I so like this series that I want to own them all and will just put up with Guidall, bummer!
The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because of the overall direction and development of the character of Rapp. The marriage seems to be taking Rapp into a person that I didn't fall in love with. He has always been on the front line and I relished int he details of his use of weaponry and methodology of his assassin work. I miss that. I am less enthralled with the political maneuvers with him being involved on this side of it as opposed to being the real tip of the spear.
Not as much as in the past. It was very good, but not as complex. I figured it out less than halfway through the book.
He could read the dictionary to me. He does justice to the character of Mitch Rapp. I won't listen to anyone else do him anymore.
Not really. It didn't bring me to laughter, or dread, or complexity. It was good.
I hope Rapp's marriage fails and he goes back to being an assassin.
He tells a good story, as always, and Rapp is an intriguing if rather one dimensional character. But Flynn tends to get carried away with his diatribes against anyone who believes that the CIA should have any limits whatsoever on its authority. Most people who have read more than one of the series will be CIA fans - or else they'd be reading something else. But to devote whole chapters to condemning all politicians who believe espionage has limits is excessive, and detracts from his story. The only problem with audiobooks is that it's hard to skip the bad parts
It first I was going to shelve it, and wait for a slow day . but after I started into it I could not put it put away. I think that was the first I have read by the author Vince Flynn and will look into more of his works especially the Mitch Rapp Series . The narrator George Guidall was excellent.
Very pleased with this purchase.
good story, good narration. My favorite Narrator is Athena Ayres. George is right up there too. Good stuff! I like this series but wish they had kept a consistent Narrator. I have skipped a couple entirely due to this..
I am a registered nurse and a father of four great kids. I live in a rural part of Oregon and love it. I enjoy books, but Sci-Fi Fantasy has allows been the ones I reach for more than others.
Ousted as spy and possible an assassin by a mad Congressman, Mitch Rapp has to look over his shoulder and step into role he's not meant for, a desk jockey. Rapp has got a steady girl and a job he hates, but one she loves. Because he has been marked as a CIA operator Rapp is stuck behind a desk planning instead of doing the CIA's most secret missions. Well maybe. Again, fans of Flynn will enjoy the adventure, politics, and suspense in which he intertwines in his books.
I would recommend this book to a friend because it keeps me interested using a great story and the technical information I love.
I've listened to the first four Mitch Rapp novels and, unlike some series I have listened to, this one has remained interesting.
George Guidall's performances have contributed greatly to experience of the novel. I can't imagine anyone else's voice reading these books
No but I sat in the car several times in the drive way to hear the resolution of a couple of tense moments
Highly recommend this series, at least to this point
It grabbed me right away and pulled you all the way.
could not wait to continue it.
Yes it is a good book you will be on your toes all the time
