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
Another great addition to the Mitch Rapp series. A great cliffhanger about political espionage and intrigue. If you like Mitch Rapp, you won't be disappointed!
Mispronounces simple names (O'Reilly/"O'Reely???), over enunciating, stilted and terrible characterization all but ruins a good story. Bring back George Guidall as Rapp.
This novel covered a lot of ground and did an excellent job setting up the next one. Not a cliffhanger ending, but a few plot threads left open and a couple of coming changes have me looking forward to the next novel. The four stars on the story are because it seemed that too many things went right for Rapp through the book. I know it would have made the book longer but it would have been more interesting and suspenseful as well to see him have to deal more with Murphy's law.
I love to listen to many novels in the star wars series,Stephen king novels, history, and biographies as well.
This book was time well spent, because I am a big fan of political thrillers.
I liked the plot of the story with the sanction of an operative, and the political dealings with the c i a.
Mitch Rapp was his best character.
I could see this novel made into a film. Since MattDamon has already played a c i a op as Jason Bourne, he would be a good choice to play Rapp.
