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.
Listening to good books from around the world, in the comfort of home....
The book may be dated but what a great story and adventure, the story has Heroes, unlikely heroes, villains , slimy politicos. He story flows very well...I really like well written secret service, CIA, military books...and this book fills the bill.
If you like that kind of book Mitch Rapp will not disappoint you
No. The writing is still great, but the portrayal of the characters we have gotten to know with the narration of George Guidal are completely changed with Nick Sullivan. Irene Kennedy now sounds prissy, Director Stansfield sounds like a withered up old man with no confidence.
His interpretation of the characters is completely different from who we have gotten to know in previous books
Sort of. I find the narration has ruined what could be a good book.
I will be skipping the next book in the series since it is narrated by the same person. I will be sure not to buy any more books narrated by Nick Sullivan.
I love God, my family, my country and making money. Any reviews or recommendations will reflect that.
Definitely 1st in the fictional category.
Mitch Rapp, of course. The guy is what every guy wishes he was.
I have not. My only complaint (which wasn't really a complaint at all) was the narrator's robotic voice in the beginning. Once the characters got introduced, his narration was great.
Yup.. it was hard to stop listening after a commute.
This is the first Vince Flynn book I ever read years ago in paperback. I was hooked and have them all in my library now. I really enjoyed the audio version, too. Anybody that likes Tom Clancy will LOVE Vince Flynn.
