I wanted something different from my spy novels, thrillers and mysteries; this was a very pleasant surprise – totally enjoyed it and highly recommend it.
Didn't read the print version
George is my favorite and have purchased audio books because of him that I otherwise would not have considered.
The Lost Wife title would be fine, although it would be hard to make this book into a movie and do justice.
Just sit back, close your eyes, listen and try to imagine the times and events of those times. How would you feel?
I've always enjoyed Grisham and this one did not disappoint. Good plot, although I can just about figure out what's going to happen, something changes. It's a good read (listen).
I've been following this series (Mitch Rapp character) for about five years and have enjoyed watching this character evolve. Vince Flynn is a good writer and understands the limitations on what a spy character can and can't do (they are not superman and they never get the girl at the end). The plots that Flynn uses are realistic and could happen today. George Guidall is an excellent narrator, using a mixture of voices that be differentiated from each other (see his other readings). If you like these types of reading start with Flynn's first book before you get this one, you might appreciate it more.
The plot and the premise of the book is very interesting, which attracted me to it; but as you listen along it starts to fall apart and it becomes corny and could not wait for it to end – recommendation: I would not purchase this.
I started following this series three years ago and fairly enjoyed it - but the series has become ... boring and the characters so corny for an espionage novel. I regret purchasing this and I could not get through the first downloaded section (it is broken into three 6 hrs downloaded sections). If you like espionage, there are many better books out there – avoid this one.
I've always enjoyed the writings of George and this was very typical of her other books, very detailed and a good story line. This was also a very long audio book, but I certainly got my money's worth
I didn't know what to expect. My family all read it and said it was similar to Harry Potter books, but it wasn't. Although it was enjoyable it was hard to follow because of names of places and people. The narrator was good and easy to listen to.
