I have to be honest... Mitch Rapp has some competition here. I'm a devout Rapp fan, but there is something about gentry that is refreshing. I recommend the three books in this series I've heard so far without reservation. If you like this style of storehouse will not be disappointed!
I never write reviews, although I listen to a lot of books. I found this series of the gray man books about a month ago. I am on my third book, actually just completed it tonight. And can hardly wait to purchase the fourth one. It is just action-packed and full of adventure. Well thought out and the guy who reads the book does very well. If you like special forces stories and spy novels this is right up there with the best I've ever read/listened to.
Boy am I disappointed. I think Mark Greaney can write a good thriller. He has done a fantastic job taking over the Tom Clancy series without profanity. His Gray Man series is good but tainted by a increasing use of F bombs to describe scenes. I threw in the towel half way in after a barrage of F this F that, those MFers, etc. It is just really unnecessary.
This story centers on a drug cartel theme where the Gray Man works to save the wife and unborn child of a friend who once saved his life. Aside from the F bombs, I found myself struggling to get behind our hero; Courtland Gentry. He doesn't have many worthy characteristics for me to root for him.
Jay Synder is an incredible reader. He does a superb job with male and female voices as well as foreign accents.
If you're OK with a lot of profanity, this may be a good series for you. I'm going back to Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp series and Tom Clancy's series on Jack Ryan as I have really enjoyed those espionage books as well as other writers who don't lean on profanity in their writing style.
Unpredictable, good imagination, very entertaining, the main character takes a licking but is very resourceful & fortunate. Somebody has to be looking over him.
good book!😆to read. Hopefully you will get the whole series. the narrator was great with changing the characters voices.
This series continues to shine! From the first paragraph to the epilogue. I felt so much part of this memorial story in the life and times of Court Gentry. This is by far the best series I have experienced on Audible!
I enjoyed the book but it seems as if
The Gray Man makes a lot of goofy decisions. He is supposed to be so smart and slick, most of the times he is, but he still makes some tactical choices that put him at a disadvantage.
I really enjoyed the story. The Six's more human side, the enemy and those he was there to help. The story seemed to have everything needed to feel complete and full. I hope the next in the series is as good.
