Well, since I rarely read books anymore and never read a book while listening to it, I wouldn't be able to answer this question. How many people actually read and listen to a book anyway?
Rapp is put completely out of commission and doesn't remember much of anything for a while.
When Rapp is being a nice guy due to a head injury.
when I heard that old guy had 6 months to live.
You think you know what is happening and then there is a twist and everything changes. It's like a murder mystery taking a twist, except this isn't a murder mystery kind of book. Unlike many authors who struggle to come up with new ideas and whose new books are frequently stale, Vince Flynn continues to deliver in the Mitch Rapp series. This book might just be one of the top 3 in that series.
At the top
It is the usual excellent Mitch Rapp story
Now I am waiting for the next book
LA Magic Man
This is a very lazy book... the plot is very straightforward and thin with very little action or suspense. Guess what happens at the end of the book? Mitch Rapp kills them all (big shocker, huh?).I've loved many of the previous Mitch Rapp novels, but this one is really not up to snuff.Sorry to say, this one I could have just missed.
Better plot, better editing, more depth in writing.
George Guidall is always excellent.
Retired real estate broker. 66 years old married for 44 years to my high school sweetheart. 2 children and 2 grandchildren. I love to read but because of medical issues I had to turn to audio books and I love them.
Near the top. I ahve read all of his books and this does not disappoint
It's been said that Puccini's operas are young adult fare. The same could be said for Vince Flynn's books, and they succeed in that way, some better than others. This one is OK, but it feels written in a hurry, without the effort of some of his earlier work. This one is not richly plotted, and the characters are thin. Hurley, many books ago, was genuinely interesting with lots of telling interplay with Rapp, but not here, where he's a cliche with lazy lines and anemic action.
Contrast the arc of Flynn's books — great when he started out and worked hard to hurried and anemic now — with Stieg Larsson's, which began terrific and stayed that way until he died too soon.
I like the characters and the excitement. I'm always surprised that I enjoy an author who has Rush Limbaugh on his web sight, but I do. I like the relationship between Irene Kennedy and Mitch and I found bringing in a villain from another book very intriguing.
Liked when Irene Kennedy one ups the FBI
Not exactly the kind of book that "moves " you.
The story was really still more of the same, but it was a little bit better than the last couple of novels set in the "present" time frame. The writing is always top notch and George Guidall has become the voice of Vince Flynn for me, although I do think his women all sound a bit breathy at times. Not as much political preaching and some of the recent works. Overall, not the renewed energy of the last two "trip to the past novels", but a good work - must have for anyone going through the whole series - ok as a starting point as well, but a couple of "spoilers" if you start here and then go back to book 1.
I didn't like his tone, cadence and overall performance. Many better narrators for this tye of intriguing and exciting story.
...but I expected more from the story that's why I give it a four.
