I did not read the print version.
Interaction between Rapp and Anna Reely.
The narrator read somewhat mechanically - he did well with some characters, such as Dallas King and Sherman Baxter, but the otherwise intense story line seemed detached. Sometimes matching a narrator to a series is like magic or a good marriage - there is good chemistry. For me, once you have heard George Guidall narrate Rapp novels, no one else will do. Similarly, there is no one to narrate a Jack Reacher novel other than Dick Hill.
Loved the story. Unfortunately, I had listened to the first two Mitch Rapp books and preferred the reader of those two books better. It did not take away from an enjoyable story, it just would've been better with the other reader.
Another great Rapp adventure
Nice character representations
Difficult to stop listening
Rapp series by far my favorite.
I have read it more than once and would continue to read and listen-what a great follow up to a great start. Flynn has continuously been a best selling author for strong obvious reasons.
I don't understand people antipathy for this narrator and their like of George guidal in all the others. his voice is better suited-it is stronger and not so particular as georges.
I started with American Assassin and then Kill Shot. I strongly recommend that everyone else do the same. Transfer of Power was the best yet by far. Looking forward to the rest of the series.
FANTASTIC!!! you can't get much better then Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp. I have read the books BUT the Audible version is so much better.
I'm a bored Alabamian looking for a way to escape!
This book reminds me of Die Hard or The Hunt for Red October or any really big summer blockbuster movie. Of course, if I tried hard enough, I could find a few flaws in character development, on in the details of the weaponry, or if some particular street runs one-way or both ways. But who really cares about that? Do I want to read (listen) to the book or dissect it? I want to read it and escape into the world of Mitch Rapp, the CIA and the political intrigue of Washington, D.C. I liked the story and the characters from the President, CIA Director Stansfield, Irene Kennedy down to the bad guys. And Mitch Rapp? He's so cool, I've been racking my brain to figure out who would play him in the movie because it reads (and sounds) like a movie!
The narrator, Nick Sullivan does an excellent job with the characters. He would change the inflections and cadences of the characters and made them sound uniquely different. Main characters from Term Limits appear as secondary characters and enhance the story. And he did a good job of remembering how they spoke in that audiobook. Many people did not like him, but I had no complaints. Perhaps they didn't start at the beginning with Term Limits and continue from there. But my favorite voice was that of Director Stansfield. Mr. Sullivan made this character sound 70-90 years of age, with a light and wispy voice chocked full of gravel, but heavy on wisdom and subterfuge.
There wasn't really a dull moment in the book. I kept waiting for the thud of minutiae and the boring buildup to another sensational blast of mayhem, but it really didn't come. Not like that. It was a nonstop rollercoaster ride of fun....the definition of a summer movie blockbuster.
This is an action packed book that will keep you on your toes and aching for more at every turn. The story was great, the narration was good, and many of the main characters from the first two books carry on. Why then, might you ask, did I only give it 4 stars? I was confused. The transition from the first two books was not there. Now, I know this was originally the first book and the other two were written many years later, but that is my point. Vince could have easily made the transition a little smoother. So to help ease the questions of others like me, suddenly a decade has passed, people's careers have progressed and Mitch no longer has a relationship with his gorgeous, sexy, Swiss blonde.
With those facts in mind, you should adore this book if you love action.
yes if you like this kind of book.
Good ideas for making subject come alive.
For the most part.
