Little disappointed with the narrator. The other books have been well narrated, while this one was difficult to listen to as the narrator didn't have much voice inflections.
love the series but the narrator draws o..u..t..e..v..e..r..y..s..y..l..l..a..b..l..e. Guidall is simply the best. Moves really slow for first 15 or so chapters.
The book is outstanding and has important information for the series.
Great development of the characters and answers questions left from the last book.
Even as painful as the narrator is...you have to hear the story. Unless this is rerecorded, you may want to read the book.
I really cannot add to the negative reviews already posted. Let me be clear, this is a great story, just very poorly performed. One would think Ken would've at least tried to reproduce some of the mannerisms that made the first several books so entertaining, but alas he did not and failed miserably. I look forward to putting this performance behind me as I will most certainly enjoy the rest of the series with the soothing voice of George again.
I bought the first two Vince Flynn/ Rapp books, I just can't take any more Kliban. His voice is shrill and the volume changes are too much for my ear to take. I can not and will not finish this book. Kliban is so distracting that I could not focus on the story, his voice is just NOT Mitch Rapp!
Shrill voice, too many loud / shouting incidents!
I may try the fourth book in the series but I will test the audio first. Not sure I will buy more of this series.
If I had the money I would pay George Guidall anything he wanted to redo this book so Mitch Rapp sounds like a man!
Ken Kilban destroyed a good story. His narration is so bad at times it is impossible to distinguish Rapp's lines from his wife's! The worst narrated book in the entire series!
Having listened to the three previous books, it was extremely difficult to listen to this narrator's high nasal voice and interpretation of Mitch Rapp. The voice was so annoying and the whiny nasal tone he gave Rapp at times was particularly offensive. It really got in the way of my enjoyment of the book, so I went out and bought one to read myself. The two previous narrators differed in their voice for Mitch and the others, but they still sounded like they belonged to the characters, so the listener could adapt easily to the new voice. I find it hard to believe that Vince Flynn ever approved of this guy!
I was hesitant to listen to this after reading the multitude of horrific reviews of the reader but didn't want to miss out on the continuing storyline. Although the first couple of hours were difficult to get through, eventually it seemed like the reader found an appropriate flow and tenor to bring the characters more to life. Eventually, the story just spoke for itself and carried on like the other preceding books in this series. Entertaining enough for me to enjoy my commute time each day. I'd recommend giving this one a chance.
