I've gotten about halfway through and at this point I'm fast forwarding just to get to the end. Huge Mitch Rapp fan. Re-reading the entire series and had forgotten about the narrator. Makes everyone sound like whining, screeching, cry babies. Has Rapp practically yelling at other characters when clearly the conversation should be hushed. In fact there isn't a professional in the entire cast if you go by the performance.
The performance takes away from the book. Flynn family, please have George do this one too.
I HAD TROUBLE CONCENTRATING BECAUSE OF THE NARRATOR
I DIDN'T GET THAT FAR
NOT GEORGE GUIDALL
REDO THE NARRATION
The narration is awful. Ken's intonation, inflection, and rhythm are so far outside the norms of spoken English that the book takes on almost a comedic quality. Picture William Shatner inhaling a balloon full of Helium and then reading the book as Captain Kirk and you'll be in the ballpark. I'm not sure if it was simply my frustration with the narrator, but it also seemed like it took much longer to get to the action than the other Mitch Rapp books. The first hour or two seemed to simply rehash the events of the prior novels in the series. Hopefully this isn't a recurring trend in future installments..
I like Mitch's character, even when he sounds like a whiny adolescent.
Rerecord it with a new narrator.
The narrator...it was AGONY listening to this narrator's extremely irritating voice.
Yes...would even buy this book again IF it was narrated by George Guidall.
No...I would not willingly listen to another minute of this unpleasant voice.
Either wait for George Guidall...or if (like me) you are listening to the series in order, read the paper book.
Good Story... I have downloaded and listened to ALL the Mitch Rapp series.
Ken Kliban should be reading stories to children. This book, is read with so much exaggerated drama, that more than a few times I have considered turning the story off and going on to listen to the next book in the series, Executive Power.
