I started the Mitch Rapp series with the 2 prequel books American Assassin and Kill Shot. It seems like the character has changed over the years, bot not by much. There not as many times for Rapp to shine, but that's from the story since so many people were involved, and had a lower body count and action than I hoped for. It was still good, but not as exciting as the previous 2. I believe this series will get better, obviously, and hopefully I see more of what I liked in young Rapp in later books.
I'm just beginning this series and this just added more fuel to the fire. Can't wait to get into the next one.
The only drawback was the narrator. I was disappointed. No comparison to the 1st one. Because the story is so good I got I stuck with it and finally got used to it. I'll pass on future titles with this narrator. This series will be the exception.
If you're a Mitch Rapp fan like me you won't be sorry.
Some reviews did not like the narration, but I thought it was excellent both story and narration. He's no good doll but there's only one of him!
This is the absolute best Mich Rapp book there is. This was the book that got me started on Vince Flynn and I have listened to this book many times and still isn't getting old.
The book met all my expectations and was extremely enjoyable. Mitch Rapp is a great American. I like the way the extra characters are involved and the twist of faith for each of them plays of heroism. The narrative is good I still like a woman doing the woman's part.
Probably the weakest of the three books thus far. Clearly, Vince Flynn is ahead of his time-many recent movies seem derivative in light of having read this! The performance is not as good as George Green doll, and the characters seem much thinner. Most disappointingly, I don't feel any closer to The character of Mitch Rapp. If anything, more distant. Still though, I look forward to the rest of the series!. In summation, the whole thing feels like a bad movie sequel.
I couldn't stop listening! Great balance of action and political thriller. A little dated in places, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I nearly dropped the series when I found out George Guidall had been replaced as narrator. Glad I stuck with it though, especially when I noticed that from Book 6 Guidall is back.
Once you get over the difference in narrator this was a good solid Mitch Rapp book. The timeline seems to have jumped markedly forward from the previous Book 2, so much so that on more than one occasion I was sure I'd missed one or more books by accident.
All that aside I really enjoyed this book and will continue with Book 4 and 5, with the knowledge that the series returns to it's original and best narrator George Guidall. Nick Sullivan was good... a bit wooden perhaps.. but that's comparing him to an elite like Guidall.
