Vince Flynn was an amazing author, and the Mitch Rapp series is wonderful. I have listened to several of the books read by different performers, and I enjoyed them much better. Nick Sullivan just doesn't have what it takes to narrate a Mitch Rapp book. In the future, if he is the only performer for the unabridged version, I'll read the book.
Mitch Rapp stories always leave you wanting more. this one was no different. Great!
It did take a little getting use to the new narrator. but he was good. He pronounces every word correctly which makes it less realistic. but as the story progresses you learn him and the story.
They claim they were not based on any book, but if they had been, this is that book. Book published in 1999, movies in 2013. Make your own judgements. If I were Vince Flynn, I would sue.
Loved this book. Love the action, love the characters, especially Milt. This plot is probably more realistic than the North Korean or wack-o US paramilitary antagonists of the movies above. And, as in one of the movies, there is more than just the one enemy. If you liked the movies, you will love this book.
And, you know, as much as we all love George Guidall, Nick Sullivan did a good job. If Guidall had never touched the series, no one would be complaining. Sullivan did many voices, and did them well. Just consider the differences between vain, self-important Dallas King and 70-yo hardened CIA chief Stansfield; he did both voices well. His women's voices don't sound falsetto or infantile, and he did the old Black Milt very well. Yes, there were mistakes, but I don't know if they were in the reading or the writing.
My only question is what happened to Gretta? Did Mitch leave her over in Germany and not go back for the last 5-8 years? What's up with that?
