If the author had fleshed out the story, again, it was more like a treatment that one would send ones publisher for approval, then one would actually write the book.
The one dimensional characters.
Slow down. Tell the story, rather than rush through it.
I would not have cut anything, rather I would add significantly to the narrative.
I just felt like it was not as complete a novel, as I would have expected.
I so wanted Rickman to pay! His evil nature made the reader / listener cheer as he went down with his cronies defeated by the good guys. I enjoyed this so much that I hated for it to end.
But it’s a Kosher frog!
Eureka! I have finally finished all 13 books of the Mitch Rapp series and I loved them all. I actually liked the series better than I did Jack Reacher. Okay, these books are not literary masterpieces but are quite entertaining. In this, the most recent book, Mitch and his team managed to save the world again. If you are just looking for some bubblegum for the mind, I highly recommend this series.
If you found this review to be helpful, please let me know. Cheers!
This book is so violent and uninteresting, that I suddenly noticed all the violence in intrigue and mystery books has become needless and senseless. For example, I am also sick of some of the series I used to love like Jim Butcher and Robert Crais because their violence has gotten out of hand. Where's the intelligence in writing anymore from authors who know how to weave a tale of intrigue and who know how to delight our imagination--even a bit? Editors and storytellers must know we still have brains...? And hearts...? And are interested in the gifts of their imaginations...? And care about their art form...? Or do they think we are dumbed down to the point of this dribble? This is nothing but torture scenes for no reason, so if you like that and think the world really works that way (which it really doesn't), then hey, you can have my copy and have a really bad time inside your skull.
Yes, I have gone back to writers such as Agatha Christie and writers of old because current writers do nothing to stimulate my imagination except gross me out. I can do without that, thank you very much.
I loved George Guidall when he narrated Craig Johnson's Longmire books, but these are crap. His narration is why I tried it out. I wish I could un-try it or get a refund. Or delete this book from my library and from life.
All of them.
Stay away from this series if you are a human being with a mind. I guess if you are an animal who reads and you only care about violence and domination, hey, this author has an audience. Yee-haw.
yes, very entertaining, and not hard to follow. I am not fluent in military lingo and kept up just fine.
indeed. lots of action and pin point wittiness!
Mitch, hands down.
when Mitch met the police officer at the safe house.
surprise twists, exciting action and good character development - a must read - I loved it
Wanted to be in the truck listening . Couldn't wait for the ending, but then was pissed that it was over!
The listen starts out boring and slow, probably due to the narrators lack of enthusiasm. It does pick up and become more riveting as the plot unfolds. I forced myself not to abandon it early and was rewarded later.
Retired dentist after 37 yrs & with strong artistic interests left intensive reading until my latter years and am having a ball!
If I were "into" modern guns, armory and their usage and were also prepared to be jolted mentally around, have new names thrown at me constantly and for several hours, with little release for really good descriptive prose, I would have enjoyed this book better than I did.
Perhaps it was just too modern for my taste and added to the fact that I simply did not look forward to jumping back into more violence, I found myself simply not looking forward the the next chapter. I love a good "thriller" and a "who dun-it ?" but I chose badly, for my particular taste, on this one.
Write a better, more complex story.
Write a book that consistant with his talents.
