I was an early fan of Vince Flynn's American Assassin series, and I enjoyed the development of his characters, particularly Mitch Rapp. But like virtually all writers who enjoy success, particularly in the sic-fi/fantasy and mystery/thriller genres, Mr. Flynn has been tempted to beat this horse beyond death and is turning a great idea into an increasingly average series as it drags on.
I love all his books. They aren't normally what I had read in the past. I had picked up the 1st book years ago...pretty much out of desparation for anything to read while deployed in Iraq with Fleet Hosp in 2003. Have been a fan every since. When ever a book comes out...I pretty much tell my husband I am doing "nothing" today. His response "Oh, another Mitch Rapp book"
the intrique, the travel, that he is a survivor....
I feel like we need a hero and Mitch Rapp fits that
Please feel free to share the best book you've ever listened to... legal analysis, trial advocacy, biographies, self help, psychology, spiritual...
If I'd read these books in middle school I'd have gone to the farm for sure. And made it. Mitch needs help.
Yes, very good read.
Yes, moved fast and never saw lots of the action that came along.
I didn't read the print version, but think I would prefer the audio for the narration. George Guidall does a great job in the Mitch Rapp series and is quite enjoyable to listen to.
The book is similar to others in the Rapp series, and I've yet to become bored with them. If you like David Baldacci action thrillers, you will probably like this set as well.
He pronounces names and places better than I would ever be able to. He also does well at multiple character voices and makes them believable. I've listened to a number of his narrations and enjoyed every one.
Welcome to a terrorist's worst nightmare.
I highly recommend any of Vince Flynn's books. I've read quite a few and enjoyed each one.
MITCH IS THE "PERFECT" AGENT. A TRUE INSPIRATION TO THOSE OF US THAT CAN'T DO THAT TYPE OF LIFESTYLE.
HIS ABILITY TO CHANGE VOICE/TONE TO THE CHARACTER HE'S PORTRAYING.
BETTER BE CAREFUL WHO YOU SCREW WITH.
WILL EVENTUALLY PURCHASE THIS WHOLE SERIES.
As always I enjoyed Mitch Rapp series but this book is one of the bests. I couldn’t leave it until the end….
Near the top and this is near the top of Flynn's Rapp books.
Rapp floating down the river in Paris.
Great reading, his voice just fits with this book and genre.
When Mitch saved the life of a French agent or police officer. I didn't think he would take the time to administer first aid when his own life was on the line. Of course it's a book and I should have realized he would save the man, but the man might have lived anyway.
Great book. Flynn will never write enough Rapp books for me, but keep them coming Mr. Flynn. This is a true masterpiece. Most series go stale after a few books, but this one is perhaps the best one yet.
Like the story, but too many swear words. try thinking up more sophisticated expletives, instead of resorting to the vulgar four letter types.
