Regrettably, the latest Vince Flynn effort is very formulaic and, at least for this listener, lacked the taut edginess of his earlier efforts. Mr. Guidall's narration is good, but can't save the predictable plot.
Absolutely. Excellent listen. The whole Mitch Rapp series has been great. None of books have been disappointing. Can't wait to get back to the book to find out what happens next.
I really really like the way he deals with arrogant people who are full of themselves especially the politicians. Makes me smile and sometimes laugh out loud.
George Guidall is the perfect reader for this series. I would be disappointed if someone else read his next book. Guidall is the best choice for this & also Craig Johnson's Walt Longmire.
Keep them coming Mr. Flynn
great story, Mitch Rapp is at it again. Vince Flynn has brought home another winner!!!
With George G narrating, yes
Yes, but I don't want to give any spoilers from the plot.
The shoot out at the vet
Great job by Vince Flynn. Amazing given his battle with cancer. From talking a little with was vets, without giving them spoilers as they were reading print editions, fairly accurate book.
Best CIA series
Vince always keeps you on the edge of your seat. This book keeps you wondering about the next move and the plot thickens the farther you go.
George Guidall is by far one of the best readers out there. Anyone who has read the Gunslinger is aware of that. I will listen to a book just because he is the reader.
Not sure about that. Maybe when Irene shows a different side of herself about her agents that are killed.
The Mitch Rapp character, the intelligence of the story and it's characters.
The change in Rapp's character after he was injured.
I'd like to see Mitch get involved with the fornsic agent he was flirting with in the hospital.
The story is pretty seethrough - but then I have read/listened to a few of these books by now. The caracters is what make this story good. I got really involved with the caracters and could relate to all of them. Some made me really irritated for being so extremly naive and gullible with no critical sense at all, while others intrigued me and made me want to learn more about them. The storyline was pretty basic and one knew the outcome pretty quickly. I bought this book because I was hopeing it would be different - but I was let down there. I also had a bit of a problem with the narrator - his speach was not clear enough for my liking - at the same time his performance matched the caracters in the book. I guess its just me who is not used to this slurry speach.
Good enough but no surprises unless you get excited about the caracters. I would recommend it for braindead entertainment.
I have been waiting on the edge of my seat for another Mitch Rapp installment especially one that didn't focus on the back story and this sure did not disappoint.
Another gripping performance by George Guidall also.
Yes, I would recommend. It is full of drama and thorough character study and keeps you engaged through out.
Mitch is constantly under seige - both domestically and by foreign countries. When things look darkest, he prevails. But this is not just a story about Mitch - it is also about Irene Kennedy - and their partnership is a study in contrasts. Mitch could not be Mitch without Irene.
I am a big admirer of George Guidall's reading. His characterizations are nuanced and distinct. He does not make the mistake of over modulating or using falsetto for his characters, nor does his accents over the top. He is one of my favorites.
It was great for Flynn to be back on track with Rapp & leave the prequels. Another classic that was exciting to listen to; did not disappoint!
