Whatever you do, ignore the negative reviews of this work and try it for yourself. Excellent story line, excellent narration. Do read/listen to the first book in the series first. Can't wait for book 3!
I don't usually consider the performance as top priority, but the performance and recording here ruins the entire work. You constantly have to twist the volume control because Kilban goes from mumbling to screaming in a single sentence. I'm a BIG Mitch Rapp fan, but I'll forget about trying to finish this one and buy the printed version.
I originally skipped books 3 and 4 in the series due to the bad performance reviews. Don't make the same mistake. There is absolutely nothing wrong with Mr. Sullivan's performance. Ignore the bad performance reviews and judge for yourself. Five stars from me all the way across.
I didn't buy this audio when it was first released due to the bad narrator ratings. Then I decided to give it a try. Maybe it's me, but I don't see the problem. The narrator may be a beat slower and more monotone between voices, but I don't listen to audiobooks to be entertained by the narrator. His reading and diction were fine. The conversations were easy to follow, and I believe the narrator did a good job. The story is excellent.
I too am a Lee Child/Reacher fan, but this one is way off the mark. Entirely too much detail that adds no value to the story line. No one wants to hear about every blade of grass in a 10-mile drive, or spend 20 minutes listening to the description of a key with scratches on the end of it, or why those scratches might be there. I was constantly rewinding because the story is hard to follow amid the humdrum. This entire book could easily be consolidated into a two-hour short story. Avoid this one and hope the next work is better.
Not sure why all the B and M'ing about the reader. Extremely well written, extremely well read. A true story of a brilliant American icon. World changers are allowed to be a little eccentric.
