I have liked all of the Gray Man books to date but this one I found myself not able to leave alone. Usually I listen in my car to and from work. This one had me going so much I would find myself wondering how in the hell he was going to get out of this or that situation. I ended up listening at my desk during (ok, and a little bit after) lunch. I've never done that. Sometimes doing chores around the house but never at work. It had a lot of action and a little more character development which I welcomed. I am starting on the last of the series tomorrow.
For this book to be better, the author would have had to scrap the entire thing and write another book.
Absolutely. I don't plan on reading another Gray Man Novel.
I don't know if the fault lies with the narrator, who's Spanish pronunciation was atrocious, or the producer/publisher who, quixotically, seemingly could not seem to find one person who had even heard the language speaking to review the work. The problem is that Snyder's pronunciation was so bad that I actually had trouble understanding what he was saying from time-to-time and it was bad enough at time to pull me out of the story.
Overall this was a pretty good book. Not as good as the first two. A little heavy handed on the machismo (or, as Snyder pronounces it, "makismo") and I think there were a few areas where Greaney departed enough from trade-craft to be distracting; but overall it was a good enough story to get me to purchase the next in the series.
The unbelievableness of the situations Cort Gentry is constantly into. His experiences keep me ont he edge of my seat.
The whole idea of the drug cartels and the likelihood of the reality of the corruption they can bring to the table. It is a reasonable idea to be reality.
He's pretty good. He's no George Guidall but he is pretty good. He has Gentry down for sure.
I hope this series goes further than 3 books. While the plots and experiences are a bit over the top, they are what makes them interesting. I would also love to see Gentry reconciled with the U.S. government.
Wow, what a great story. Narrator was amazing. I think I lost five pounds listening to this book as I stayed on the elliptical way longer than expected each time I went to the gym. I couldn't stop listening. Just when you think you've hit the climax of the story, hold on, because you're in for more of a ride. Without a doubt, I will be listening to more from Mark Greaney and his gray man character.
His voice affectations are flawless. This makes it very easy to follow the characters and makes the story come alive.
Greaney and Snyder are a great team. I really like them both.
i am addicted to audio books. I always have one on in my car, or on my i-pod when I'm cleaning or shopping. I always have loved to read
A new hero, tough guy is on the scene. I have read the first three and just pre-ordered the fourth. I thought the first one was really good, the second too. The third one was a little weak, But I still ordered #4. I like Cort, he seems to have a sensitive streak.
The evolution of the Grey Man as a character.
Another layer of international and political espionage. The locations are great.
The Grey Man & Target, both by Mark Greaney
Jay Snyder is outstanding as a voice performer. All of the accents are wonderful. His voice portrays all of the emotions as well as being a perfect narrator of the Gray Man series to date. Easy listening, comedic timing, depth and raw grunt! loved them all.
Scrap Brad Pitt as the possible lead. He's hot, but way too old for the energy in these stories.
Ballistic, thrilling, action
The Grey Man of course. He is a rough and rugged killer with a kind heart. Also, in my head he is sexy as hell :)
Gentry. He has an amazing voice and is able to put the proper inflection on the more humorous parts in the book
I think Ballistic would be the perfect movie title
This is by far the best of the 3 Grey Man books. Court Gentry doesn't dissapoint
