I read this one years ago in print. Now listening to this narrator I find Mitch's fiance is named Anna Really. Huh, certainly lookled like Reilly to me. You learn something every day. Lol
You are the sum of what you read!
I liked this book until I got to the ending. I hate movies and books that don't tie up loose ends. It is an obvious ploy to force me to buy the next book to see how it ends. It's very disappointing end to an otherwise very good book. I did not like Nick Sullivan's voice at normal speed. I needed to listen to it at 1.5 speed. At that speed it was much better.
Get a different narrator.
A different narrator would improve the listening pleasure of this book.
Any other narrator.
When the end of the book said, Hope you have enjoyed listening to Audible.
I decided to go back and "listen" to a few of the books in the Rapp series that I actually read first time through. It was a good thing I knew the story because if this was my first Audible book, I would have stopped halfway through.
Top operatives like Mitch Rapp should not sound like an elementary school librarian that is scarred of dust mite. However, the worst part has to be the narrator's failure to correctly annunciate the major characters names. It is a good thing Vince created such good characters and a story that kept me hitting the play button on my iPhone. It was also interesting to hear/see how Vince developed as an author when comparing the dialog and story with some of his early works. He will be missed.
Save the money, read the book on this one.
Yes, above all the narration.
Of course, I am a faithful fan
Yes but one written more sophisticatedly like his other novels. Maybe the narration affected my reaction.
I felt I was listening to a very simply written novel by a teenager not a seasoned author. Mr. Flynn can and always has done much better.
I made the mistake of assuming that Scott Brick would be the reader for this book, as he had for the others I had listened to. Bad mistake. This man was so bad I couldn't even listen to most of it. I love this series of books and have listened to most of them. This reader sounds like a regular person from next door who decided he could read novels...he can't.
No, the reader
Yes, he was horrible
Don't know because he was such a bad reader, I turned him off.
Great storyline and very interesting progression. Excellent character development as well bit once again Nick Sullivan ruins the party. Sullivan not only does a severely poor job conveying the author's intent and feeling bit he can't even get the words printed in front of him correct. Incorrect pronouns (she for Rapp and he for Kennedy) making listening to his narration insufferable. Nick belongs on a road crew holding the "SLOW/STOP" sign and certainly not reading spy novels. I could go on for hours but i will not. Two in a row is enough Nick. Let's just hope we get George back for the next one.
The third option was one of Flynn's early books, and it's necessary in order to pick up on a number of characters and events that will come to greater life later in the series.
"The Third Option" is well written, as are all Flynn's books, but the narration is excruciatingly bad. This may be a book better as an eBook or print book.
Sullivan mispronounces Anna Reilly's name as Anna "Really," which is fingernails on the blackboard. Most of the narration and characters are prissy as men, and whiny as women. His foreign accents are, well foreign accents, but I don't know which countries he had hoped the would be representative.
The plot is critical for the next two books, and I still recommend reading or listening to it, just know that George Guidall it isn't.
Wonder if the author got tired and gave up at end? Or the last chapter is lost ???
Otherwise good read until chap 25
