This is a good but not great Mitch Rapp book that is almost made unlistenable by the comically bad narration. I would have thought it impossible but Ken Kliban manages to get every voice wrong and his descriptive read is right out of bad acting 101.
It's an entertaining Mitch Rapp story.
No. His performances should be banned by the Geneva Convention.
It's really not that type of book.
While the narration is really bad, the story is good enough to overcome it. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it the Mitch Rapp fans. If it's your first exposure to Mitch Rapp, listen to one of the George Guidel books first.
Like everyone else I must say the narration was the worst ever! So bad that it changes the personality of Mitch and the other key players. I dont like Anna anyway but this made her out to be such a whiny BiTch. The story was very good and unfolded at a nice pace, worth giving a try.
Kennedy-she has backbone and is level headed
Mr Fylnn this book was a 4 on the scale of 10. I could hardly finish the book & the Narrator was a 1 on the same scale. I look forward to your other books and hope they are much better than this one!!!!
LOSE Anna Rapp!! She has completely ruined the storyline. Her unbelievable character and her poor, mistreated, spoiled, little girlfriend persona is soooo phony that I can't wait until some terrorist blows her dumbass up. She's like a 10- year-old. In the middle of a shootout she's pouting because Mitch slept with Donatella?? Folding her arms across her chest and chewing out Rapp while the woman is obviously bleeding to death??? This is very poorly written and totally unbelievable. The voice for Rapp is terrible too. Whining Mitch Rapp?? Give me the bomb and the terrorist and a release from the worst character Flynn ever created.
I don't even know where to begin on how bad this guy is. It's so hard to listen to. The first books had an amazing narrator. Why in the world did they use this guy. His voice waivers, his cadence and intonation is horrible. The volume fluctuates all over the place. He whispers when he is talking and then yells when he is doing a voice for someone. HORRIBLE!!
Bad directing, horrible narrating. Unlistenable. This is not Mitch Rapp. The voice inflection makes him sound like a teenager.
I love Vince, but this one's unbearable. The women are hideous shrews, the men are henpecked wimps, the story is excruciatingly dull when it's not about international espionage. You will skip over entire chapters and not miss a thing.
Many people have blamed the narrator and that may be true, but I don't think the book is very good either.
Definitely the narrator
Ummm... NoIt was difficult to get past the horrible narration
No, I don't think so
I listened all the way thru only because I didn't want to miss any of Rapp's story line. But it wasn't enjoyable in the least. I have to wonder if Ken read any of the other books in the series in order to get to know the characters. He slaughtered them, sadly.
