I enjoyed this series and can't wait for the next book! It had the right balance in story line and sex. I couldn't stop listening until I got through both books. The narrator, John Morgan, was wonderful! I'm a true fan of Sylvain Reynard.
My thoughts on the first book in this series was completely negative regarding the narrator. I decided to listen to the second in the series to see if I felt any different. Not much! The only thing I will give the narrator credit for are the childrens' voices. Others were screeching and very irritating while one of the main characters, Ashton, was SO MUNDANE! Really hard to listen to in my opinion. I'm so sorry to see that Ashford MacNab reads all the series with the exception of the last release. Maybe there's hope!
Just so that I'm clear...I do love the story and Hannah Howell.
I'm a true fan of Hannah Howell and her writing talent is outstanding. So WHY Ashford MacNab??? There are so many others that would make this story so much more enjoyable. I'm sitting on the edge of a decision to-buy OR not-to-buy! Because it's a continuation and I enjoyed the story so much, I guess I'll suffer through one more and maybe...just maybe it'll be better. Ashford MacNab doesn't have the ability to successfully distinguish the voices of the characters. Many times, I had to carefully listen to the subject of conversation to be sure who was talking. I certainly don't mean this to be disrespectful, but Ashford MacNab is at the very bottom of my choice of narrators list. Tis a pity...it's truly a GREAT story!
Bravo Brett Battles! It takes talent to write a series that never wavers from the best! I've enjoyed each and every book in this series! Scott Brick is officially at the top of my list of favorite narrators. I never grew tired of his voice. I would highly recommend this series to everyone. I sincerely hope Book 9 comes SOON!!!
I have listened to the entire KGI series with full enjoyment...until this one! Even the narration fell short! The storyline was shallow and heavily outweighed with sexual content. I have always loved the balance of story vs. sex that Maya Banks achieved in the KGI series. However, in this book...if you divided it into thirds, it would shake out as 1/3 storyline and 2/3 sex. The storyline didn't truly kick in until the last hour of the book. Adam Paul didn't deliver on the establishment of the characters either. He made the main male character seem like a high schooler with a major crush and absolutely NO self confidence at times. The main female character moved WAY too fast which made her unbelievable (considering she was suppose to be a virgin). Come on Maya!!!! You can do better than this! I think if you took the time to LISTEN...not read the entire book, you would quickly pull it from the series.
Wish I could recommend this to other readers, but just can't do it! I have in the past hooked my friends on this series and will continue to highly recommend all the other books in the series with the exception of this one. Not worth the credit!
I have now completed the entire Mitch Rapp series and am SO sad to get to the last book. I sincerely hope it isn't the end of the series. I don't think I ever enjoyed a series quite as much as this one. The only glitch I feel kept this from being the "perfect" series was when two of the books had different narrators. George Guidall spoiled us in the very beginning and a change of narration became unacceptable. Otherwise, this series was so full of excitement, anticipation and even sadness. So true to life! Thank you Vince Flynn for a wonderful contribution to the audible world and PLEASE keep Mitch Rapp alive for all his fans!
I enjoyed this story to the fullest! I cannot say enough good things about George Guidall's narration. Of course having a talented author such as Vince Flynn offer an extraordinay series makes audible books so intriguing and enjoyable right down to the last moments of the book. I'm getting very close to the end of the series and dread downloading the last book. :( It will be hard to find another series that comes close in comparison. Every book in this series is credit worthy! Vince Flynn/George Guidall team will be difficult to beat! Great job!!!!
I'm into book 6 of this series and am a true fan of Vince Flynn. However, being the avid listener of all times, narration is truly important to me. George Guidall - wonderful, Nick Sullivan - tolerable, but if Ken Kilban was the narrator for the rest of this series, I would not spend my credits. I don't mean any disrespect but the narrator brings the book to life and Ken Kilban...not so much. His tone is ALMOST irritating. The story line is way too good to waste it on a narrator that diminishes it.
Jeffrey Archer is such a gifted writer! To say that I'm an avid listener would be an understatement to say the least. Of all the narrators that I've had the pleasure to hear over the last two years, Roger Allam is the one at the top of my list. A stellar performance! I never grew tired of hearing his voice. Because of the intriguing storyline, I couldn't stop listening. The book was over 16 hours but still WAAAAAY too short.
Now that I've listened to the full series, I want to say that my mind has changed about Scott Brick. The very first book in the series led me to believe that Scott Brick was way over dramatic and I still feel that way. However, as the books progressed, I almost felt like he relaxed and the narrations became better and better. By the time The Enraged ended, I was a fan. As for the stories by Brett Battles...they couldn't be better. I took no break between novels and never grew tired of listening. I will buy ALL future releases of Jonathan Quinn and I hope they come quickly! Early on, I never thought I'd say this...but I do hope Scott Brick narrates all future releases in this series.
After reading the first two books, I was so delighted when Book 3 was released. Sylvain Reynard is a wonderful author and has the talent to hold the reader's full attention. As for John Morgan...I can't say enough. With the gift of bringing the characters to life, his mellow voice is so transfixing. I'm in awe of his Italian narration...simply beautiful. I sincerely hope Reynard continues this series.
