A lot of people in this country don't want to admit that America is changing and not all change is good. Brad offers a look at what challenges the USA is facing everyday. This is a good read!!!!
I enjoyed the overall story of Full Black but once again Thor overdeveloped. His early on character developement was too deep on some smaller characters so that by the time you get to the meat of the story I was somewhat confused as to who was who. The story itself was very entertaining although somewhat unbelieveable. Harvath should have been working for the CIA, not a private security firm such as Blackwater. A private security firm would not have the cooperation and ability to pull off some of the things occurring in this book. I am trying hard to become a Thor fan but each of his books leave me a little flat. The narration was superb.
Excellent ability to alter his voice for different characters.
It wouldn't make it through the week end without some serious editing regarding the abilities of the private security firm.
As a conservative professor of political science and economics, I found this book quite interesting. Having read most of Thors books, I found this to be both entertaining and scary. The plot lends itself to a possible reality in todays world. Especially with the way the worlds economic system is being handled by spend happy socialists leaning toward Marxism. Just change some of the names and you could envision a conspiracy like this happening in the United States . It is a sobering book.

An absolute thriller that speaks to today's problems. It makes you think about our present day situation and what we may be facing.
I've either read or listened to practically all Brad's books. While this book was good, I have to say that I did not care for the ending. Seems like the end rolls out in less than two chapters after you have gone through 30 to get there. Know there is a follow up based on the ending, but have to say the ending let me down.
Like the title says, this was a fantastic introduction to Brad Thor for me, i plan on reading/listening to more of his books. The reader does a great job.
AMERICA...Military History, History, Action and the love of good believable thrillers.
I have listened to all of Brad's books in order and this is the best one to date. It just seems that something like this could really happen in our crazy world. By the way Mr. Thor, we call getting tased in Chicago, "Ride the lightning" not the bull. : )
Brad Thor has done it again with another edge-of-your-seat Scot Harvath thriller in "Full Black". The technical details are fascinating, the story is both plausible and terrifying, and the performance is superb. And as always, Thor's ruminations--in the persona of Harvath--about terrorism, Islam, and global politics are dead on point. I find myself nodding like a bobblehead during Harvath's internal monologues.
I cannot fathom why these riveting novels haven't made it to the big screen yet. Maybe there is just too much truth and patriotism in them for Hollywood to handle, I don't know. (Hopefully the blockbuster success of "American Sniper" will change that.) Hollywood has a gold mine in Thor, if they could stop rebooting Spiderman for the umpteenth time to pay attention.
I enjoy counter-terrorism, westerns, historical fiction, detective mysteries, and old school comedy like "A Christmas Story".
I have "read" a number of Brad Thor novels and have to admit that after enjoying other novelists who prepare far more intriguing plots I will have to pass on future reads. In a word, predictability of what unfolds in the plot development makes me want to not finish the story.
