Engaging contemporary intrigue
any of the Bourne Identity etc series
President's bedroom when Rapp killed terrorist who was going to rape Anna
No. The suspense wouldn't be there the second time.
Yes. Rapid pace of events in the book.
The siege of 1600
Wow, Great, HUH? The first 1/3 of this book was such a great listen I had given it five stars but as I continued listening I had to give it four.
The story is interesting from the start. The moment Anna and the "romance" stupidity kicked in my attention waivered. Even in the absence of Hurley ( one of my favorite characters in the Vince Flynn books) I was totally absorbed in the story but all I could think of was how Mitch be even remotely interested in this immature self absorbed girl/woman in this book? When he was younger he had the wisdom to choose Greta who was a total catch ,his equal,but now in the middle of this crisis to be thinking romance with this Anna??? Grrr. I know she ends up being his wife. I may have to skip the next couple of books until her run in the series is done. She is resilient but it sure doesn't make her likeable. Milt saved it for me. Without Hurley we needed someone and the Milt character was just right. He was fantastic.It was fun to be introduced for the first time to some of the characters we see again later on.Sadly I would have loved to see more of Dallas King's shortcomings be revealed but it was not meant to be.I felt there were a lot of loose ends around the night it all "comes down". I would have preferred more details about the chaos which may have been going on due to the bombs going off around the city and what was being done to manage the situation and less romance stuff.
Nick was great however George Guidall is second to none in his narrative of the MR series.
Home is not always a safe place even if your home is the White House.
I was ready to listen to the entire series in a row but as mentioned earlier I want to skips a few until Anna Matures....she is annoying. Went online to see who was being considered for different parts in the movie version of American Assassin and sadly it doesn't sound like the casting is on target. :( Hope they don't blow it. This series could be bigger than the Bourne series but not if it's cast poorly it will just end up being like the last Alex Cross movie...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
The plot is excellent and engaging
I loved the story and character development. The performance left me feeling dry as though the narrator was reading not performing.
How the main character, Mitch Rapp, conducts himself with determination and drive.
Using the retired White House staffer's knowledge to gain entry and move around within the White House.
When Rapp saves the reporter from being raped in the president's bedroom.
Yes, this is a very intriguing book that you will want to keep listening to.
I thought the book was very good, but I tinik the ending was a little weak. Overall, a very good read with a weak ending.
Can't say I had a favorite.
Wow, the narration was just fine, the other reviews were used to another narrator, but Nick Sullivan does a very good job.
The story was action packed and you got everyone's perspective. I felt like this character must have been the precursor to Jack Bauer and the 24 series, quite a similar feel - great nonetheless.
Can't wait to read/listen to book 2!
I don't know how to read, but I know how to listen.
I never read the the printed book.
President's bedroom activities
Who's Nick Sullivan? hahah. He is a good reader.
White House Full of blood
I don't know why some reviews are complaining about the narrated performance. He is not the best of course, but he did well on this book. Vince Flynn is very talented author he knows how to keep the action going. I'm gonna buy all his books.
Who picked this awful narrator? Not only do I dislike him as Mitch Rapp, I don't like him at all. Sometimes he slows down so much it sounds like he's narrating a children's book. I really want to listen to the entire series but I don't think I can take Nick Sullivan. It's a shame, such a great series but the narrator ruins it.
George Guidall of course, or maybe Scott Brick.
Critical thinking and decision making of Mitch Rapp. In addition he did doing the right thing regardless of the political ramifications of that decision. Making the bad guy smart and evil. Most books the bad guy is an idiot not in this book. Bad guys are just as smart and in many cases smarter than the good guys. That makes the book much more realistic and interesting on many more levels. Also black and white decisions are rarely made without a lot of other tough obstacles. These obstacles are routinely the easy path disguised. Overall an outstanding book.
Mitch Rapp, because he personifies the best in all of us, while carrying out an extremely difficult job. He gets it done, he follows orders when it makes sense, but always s thinking many moves ahead.
He does all the voices Male and female in and very manner that makes all of the characters believable.
There were many moments.
Great read, read it and come to your own conclusions
