No, it just wasn't not for me. Character seems a little cookie cutter. Kind of standard fare, nothing memorable about character, female character very unlikeable, and the author's politics are apparent.
I'm not sure, but I will not continue with this series.
He gave a good performance.
Inspired me to not continue with the rest of the series.
Read the first in this series as well. Felt the same about the first, gave the second a try. Now I'm done.
exciting, funny & nail-biter
Brad is a good writer with good plots.
Comparable to jack Ryan in the Clancy books. Exciting, fun! You might fall in love with thus series like I did!
Thor is sadly no Vince Flynn. It may be that the author took a while to develop his craft but having purchased his first two, I am not keen to listen to any more.(I gave the benefit of the doubt and purchased this one after listening to his first in the series.) I did not finish this book. The corny dialogue and far-fetched story were just too much -- criticism others have voiced and I should have listened too. I wondered if the narrator was to blame for some of it as well as the story's inability to hold my interest, but concluded it was primarily the writing. It seemed amateurish to me, and I am no literary maven. Details seemed thrown in just to impress, the story was unrealistic, dialogue predictable and I didn't find myself caring one iota about any character. Perhaps I am just too spoiled by the Mitch Rapp series written the talented, late Vince Flynn.
Each one has their own interpretation of good listening, so to be fair to the author and narrator, take a chance and expand your library. I did and really enjoyed Path of the Assassin.
I like Brad Thor. I've read to most of the books in this series. Some parts are real page turners and then things slow down and then pick up again. If you are into mysteries and thrillers, I would say spend a credit on this one. The narration is excellent!
Decent story but not all that exciting.
Good question. More action less "I'll protect you honey - let me hold your hand stuff!"
Ehhh - they were all ok.
Probably. It would have to be faster moving than the book or everyone would be sleeping.
Have a nice day!
Brad Thor has a very solid writing style and that makes for a fast moving and very detailed and fun story
Scot harvath for how brad gave him so much wit and quick thinking makes for a great character
Very good indeed he brings life to the story and you want to listen to it
Scot is coming for you
not as good as the first but still a very good listen and book
The story actually did get my attention, however, the writing is mediocre at best. It is surprising that a big name publisher would endorse Thor with his often hackneyed style and unimaginative descriptions. I found the sum of it disappointing. The narrator mispronounced words throughout the book and sounded unprofessional in his presentation.
I would not recommend this book because it falls, perhaps, in the middle of the pack in this genre. Instead, I would suggest authors who have a higher level of writing intelligence.
The narrator's inflections, mispronunciations and overall poor acting ability made the flaws of the book more noticeable. The quality of the narration was, unfortunately, commensurate with the writer's skills.
The story was actually interesting, but I don't plan to buy any more Thor books.
Sorry to fans, author and narrator, but I will spend my time elsewhere.
Have 300 other books in different accounts.
Exciting and interesting. Book is well researched.
The different ways he makes you think of terrorist attacks.
I enjoy narrarators that read the book and don't add their own twist by adding their own emphasis or slow the reading down.
All of Thor's books are good
