The narrator made Mitch Wrap sound like a wining wimp. The sorry of the book is outstanding but it was greatly hindered by Ken Kliban. There is nothing wining about Mitch Wrap.
Nice continuation of Mitch Rapp's story. Vince Flynn has concocted an intricate and very believable story. It is interesting to hear his take on the current affairs of the day and how they could have played out differently. His recounting of actual people, places, and events adds an air of authenticity and believability that is intriguing. Can't wait to read the next book in the series.
I was finally able to obtain the unabridged version of the story and the the content did not disappoint. However, the reader did. I am not sure how performers are chosen, but this reader did not portray Mitch Rapp properly; he may be alright for Philip Pirrip or Macbeth, but not for a character such as Rapp. The reader sounded weak, aged, and not very convincing; the reader should reflect the characters not themselves.
The narrator was a bit over the top and a lot of time was spent covering the previous story. Overall though I did like the story. If you are a fan of the Mitch Rap character it's worth the listen. I just wasn't a fan of the narrator, their voice inflections and tones help you relate to the various characters in your mind while you listen. This one just grated on me a bit.
The Mitch Rapp series has been entertaining so far. I did not enjoy this one as much as previous books. The action sequences, as always were entertaining, but the dialogue and interpersonal relationship portions were rather stupid. I thought the reader certainly did an adequate job. I don't concur with much of the criticism leveled at him. I look forward to future books in the series being a little more compelling.
I have really become a fan of this series. I started at book 1 and have been very interested in the series. However; now at book 5 I was so close to turning off this book and the rest of the series. From the moment the new narrator began reading, I had trouble tolerating his high pitched whinny voice. His voice made it difficult to discern what character was speaking at times. His volume variation had me adjusting volume on so many occasions I wonder how I ever finished this book. Towards the end of the book it seemed as though the narrator improved a bit or possibly I just wanted closure on the ending of the book. In any event, great story horrible narrator. Who ever hired this narrator should be fired. Audible listeners will be spending 13 plus hours listening to this voice. If it sounds like a cranky whiner you will lose customers .
Ken Kliban's delivery is terrible. i kept focusing on how poorly he was reading the story to me that i was losing the story.
