The story was good.
Ken Kilban got Mitch to sound like a high-pitched whiny guy.
I hope that Vince Flynn did not want a calm guy like Mitch to be like that.
I hope that this story can be redone with new narrator.
This narrator was completely horrible. I struggle to make it through this book. The story was great. But I would rather listen to fingernails on a chalkboard over this man talk. I will definitely repurchase if George Guildall records this.
Mitch Rapp is an awesome bad ass. I can't get enough of him.
I couldn't stand the way the narrator over-exaggerated the narration. The worst part was his going from VERY LOUD to very soft. It makes it almost unbearable to listen to in the car. I kept wanting to turn the volume down, and the next moment I couldn't hear a thing. Very frustrating. Story was worth listening to and getting through the awful narration.
Yes, I actually adore Flynn, unfortunately this was not one of his better works. However, I will carefully read feedback comments before I buy again.
NO! The narrator failed miserably in depicting the persona of Mitch Rapp as well as Irene Kennedy. Instead of the competent, husky and sexy character who exudes confidence as well as a human side, this narrator made Rapp sound like a whiny whipped man who quit doing what he loves because of a woman. It was ridiculously cliche.He killed the excitement, attraction and intrigue of Rapp, and the confident strong character of Irene Kennedy.
The entire romance build up of Rapp and Anna was over the top. If I wanted a romance novel, I would have bought one. The character of Rapp was greatly diminished by his subservience to Anna.
I have read nearly every Flynn books and have come to expect a distint Rapp character. This book did not come even close, it was boring with way too many details and the narrator was too whiny.
Worst narration in the genre. If you're new to the series, this is another fantastic Vince Flynn novel - get the hard copy (or the abridged version if you must have audio).
Fantastic as all of Vince's books are.
Any other narrator. This just ISN'T Ken Kilban's genre.
The assault on my ears by the narrator almost made me cry.
I'll purchase the unabridged version again if Guidall narrates… Better yet - how about this Audible: (even though I already own all of them)"The Complete Works of Vince Flynn" Unabridged and Narrated by George Guidall.I'll prepay…
The story is GREAT! The narrator is so bad!
It would if they didn't make Mitch sound like a whiner!
He doesn't understand the characters at all

No - poor narration negatively affects the story
Get rid of the girlfriend from the story. The adventure portion of the story is OK but gets pretty childish in the areas where the girlfriend is involved. Poor narration compounds the failure.
Get a different narrator
Use George Guidall, the narrator for the other Rapp books. This narrator may be good for some topics, but is clearly innapropriate here. Granted, this is far from Faulkner, but all the characters sound like moronic, petulant idiots. A far cry from the result one would hear from a narrator of Guidall's caliber. Plus, the book is not one of the series' best, by a long shot.
We have enjoyed the Mitch Rapp series and sad that Vince Flynn passed away. Adding to the heartbreak is the miserable reader for this book. The narration is so hideous, we quit listening. The narration is just the worst! I will buy the book out of respect for a favorite author.
The absolute WORST narration in my 10 years with Audible!
