Hate to say it, but the story is ridiculous. Regardless of training, experience, etc...you never do a front summersault into a room (a dark one you have no knowledge of ahead of time), wearing traditional arab robes, and make a shot from the hip to hit someone's wrist. Not even Jack Ryan, who this is clearly a rip from.
Doctor Sleep after I finish Finder's Keeper's
He is good with the voices and overall with his presentation. Not him I was upset with.
Only after it was released to Netflix.
Far-fetched action book...if you don't care about stretches of both human ability and realistic scenes, then go for it.
Great storyline, but the narrator was terrible. He barely changed the voice he used for the different characters. I felt like a non-professional was reading it.
Should have used a different narrator.
Maybe. By the second chapter, I seriously considered returning the book because of the narrator. I chose to stick it out.
I really love this series, but I will not listen to "The Third Option" because it is read by the same narrator.
Strong characters in all genres. and narrators who don't ham it up.
No. The hero has some pretty contrived weaknesses, and the emphasis on politics and victims drags the reader through the lowest common denominator in people reactions. Why would we want to spend so much time thinking how these losers think?
The reader was good but the book was not very enjoyable.
It might be a good action movie if it was cut down significantly and we didnt have to listen to the stupidity of politicians trying to stab each other
I really like the stories and that's what got me through the narrator. The other narrator makes you feel like your almost loving the story, this guy sounds like he's reading it. At first it took away from the book and I really think he butchered the feel of the characters but in the end it worked out.
I'm looking forward to getting back to Vince as the narrator.
I love Thomas Standsfield the guy is always cool and seven steps ahead. I really look forward to the point where he sticks it to the dumbasses that are always working from some demented angle.
It's also kinda scary to see the parallels between the people of action and those always working the politics from. From the book you can see these things happen in real life
Like all spy, shoot-em-up stories, this one has some gaps in real world believability. However, the author does a good job hiding these necessary literary devices. Narration is good, but some technical names and words are mispronounced.
Grandpapa, Enginer, Eagle Scout. Favorite book = Last of the Breed. Greatly enjoy Jack Reacher series by Lee Child.
Action, Suspense, Details
Some of the Scott Harvath series books.
Action throughout the book. Never want to stop my iPod.
Can't get enough of Mitch Rapp.
