It ranks in the top half of all the audiobooks I have listened to so far. Given today's environment in Washington, the premise of the story was interesting and timely even though it was written 10 years ago. No Mitch Rapp was slightly disappointing, but it was better in some ways to have many of the familiar characters involved just before his arrival in subsequent books.
Interesting plot, kept the listener engaged.
Similar to other of his narrations. Good narration, nice character differentiation.
Worth the credit.
Though I am a fan of Flynn's books I found this one very disappointing and tedious, and bailed out about two hours from the end.
For the most part, I enjoyed the book. This novel had the feel of a first attempt. Fortunately for all of us Flynn has continued to grow and build on some of these characters. I had heard this novel was a little choppy but I really wanted to see where it all began. Thank you Vince Flynn, I love your books.
If you are a Vince fan you'll see 'origin of' several characters like the comic books of our youth. Familiar people but nary a mention of Mitch. Vince must have written this on lunch breaks but it is still a great 'secret wish' of any sentient patriot. The editor who said 'wait until you need a break' is fine by me because it gave us a Vince when he needed a break. Buy it! (400 plus titles bought).
TERM LIMITS always seems to ramp up just when I'm about to put it down. Even though I knew good would prevail over evil it kept me wondering how it would occur and how bad evil could get.
There were some hokey parts such as COS addressing POTUS by first name.
Overall I give it 4.3.
I've read this book multiple times. Listening in audio format was even more enjoyable. An exciting read with an interesting story line.
An exceptional book taking us back to a story before Mitch Rapp. What a great series by a dearly missed American Patriot who could see into the future of our history and the failings of our Government. It was hard to get used to Sullivans narration. He is no George Guidall that's for sure. God Bless the clandestine services of the various agencies!
Yes, it was a little cliche and could have used a few more plot twists, but i found it to be an enjoyable political thriller. It was still a fun book and a good way to pass the time. However, the author was a little too didactic, and needs to value human life a little more than economics. I'll always value the sanctity of life above political or economic views.
