If you are looking for a shoot from the hip action thriller, you may find what you want in this one. Robinson paints a frank no nonsense look at the SEALs and what it takes to do that job. He gives you a good look at the mindset of the radicals our military have to deal with on a daily basis. No matter where you are on the matter of "Due Process' for terrorists I think you will enjoy this thriller. I liked the performance of the narrator but I feel there were places in the story where a slower pace to his words would have been more effective. I have read a couple of Robinson's books and this was the best of the lot.
It was mesmerizing from the first chapter. I listened to it straight though; I just could not help myself. And even as I listened I wondered within myself " How does America still produce such men'. I am in awe of each of them and thankful to and for each of them. I do not think anyone can read this story without being flooded with all types of emotions. For those who came home let there be Peace; for those who did not let there be Rest, for those who did nothing to help let there be Shame.
For me 3 hours is not a book it's a short story. Pembrey starts off with a great concept for a book and I totally enjoyed it. I am not familiar with this narrator either but I was impressed by his presentation of the material. The only thing wrong with this story is that it just was not developed into a total novel. The ending was very abrupt, which was disappointing but I will still give what was there 4 stars! So if you need something to do for a 3 hour flight or layover this would be an excellent choice. I would like to see this author pick this book back up and really develope it.
This is the first book I have read by this author and I made my decision to jump in here from the synopsis and what other fans had to say and I am glad I did. I enjoyed his style of writing both the tone and pace and his characters were believeable. The narrator was new to me also but he has a smooth tone to his voice and knows how to pace his reading to match the plot. I will look for more by him, because for me, a narrator can really make or break a book.
Just totally disappointing. Mr. Greaney is writing a Grey Man book and sticking the Clancy logo on it. This book doesnt even come close to the plots the late Mr. Clancy would spin for us. Clancy fans think back to the good old days of Clear and Present Danger, Patriot Games. Even farther back to Debt of Honor or Without Remorse and compare then and this. The characters and the development of the plots that kept me turning pages into the wee hours, I remember how detailed and precise those novels were. Remember how ALIVE those people were and what we have here is just clap-trap.
What do you do when you intentionally steal 3 million but end up with 300+ million? Charlie and Ollie,brothers who thought they would just pinch a little bit. It's a dead account after all so no one will notice. And there is where their slippery slope ride begins but ends in a bloody fight for their lives. Completely enjoyable!
I stumbled into this book because of the narrator and stayed because of the tale the author wove. A tale of those who have no true believe system other than the code they can write or the thrill of the 'hack'. The young people who were given The Lie and believed it. All the hacking done by Morris is plausible. That he is a Goverment employee is also believable. And there is where this tale causes that shiver down your spine. But that is only one of the strands in this web of lies, deceipt Mr Ignatius has so tighty woven. Add Geo. Guidall, a true master, and I could not turn it off. This is one of those I wanted to listen to straight through.
I am really liking this Raynor guy. I will miss the continuing adventures of Mitch Rapp but
Racer is becoming a real an attention getter. For me, this narrator has nailed who the author is telling you who the character is. This installment in the series would make a great action movie. I am looking forward to next book in the series.
I like Connelly's work, especially Harry Bosch. This book may be good BUT this narrator drove me to Return To Sender. His voice his way too nasal. A narrator can really make or break a book and this guy broke it for me. But your mileage may vary!
I read this in print years ago but hearing it read made it all the more real to me. Following the trials and victories of Aidan with a good narrator made it like reading a new book for me. What most would see a mundane things such as a street thronged with people with unwashed bodies and yet Aidan finds the smells and tastes of a meal of bread, roast chicken, olives and wine a comfort awoke my own senses of how it was to live in thoes time. I completely enjoyed this book for a second time. I was not familiar with the narrator but I thought he did a fine job of bring this book to life.
I have tried to think of a better way to express my feelings toward this book and just cant come up with much. It was rambling in many places as if the author was struggling for something to say and in doing so we jumped from one rabbit trail to another and in trying to follow them I often fell asleep then needed to rewind and try to figure out what the dickens was happening. Then we have the ending which was like being slammed into a brick wall. One other thing I find anoying, this author seems to Have The Need to mention Wells being Muslim in some way in this whole series and I have really had it with that. Is Mr Berenson Muslim? Is that the reason he must reference 'allah' in some way in every book? If so I would prefer that he put a rein on that particular Need!! Mr Guidell was terrific as usual but even The Silver Tongue could not save this one.
