I spend a lot of hours on the road and love audiobooks. I also love Mitch Rapp books. Having heard all of them numerous times, I decided to try something different but in a similar vein. Other books I have enjoyed are nonfiction military stories and spy novels.
This book was such a disappointment. I didn't mind the sound effects (broke up the monotony) or the narration. The problem is the story. The author clearly has no military experience, nor would he stoop to asking a military person to advise him. There is a character that is a Brigadier General in the Army, and never lets you forget either of them. NO ONE in the military talks like that! Do some research.
The story drags on with very little to say. I realize that this is the unabridged version, but that does not excuse this rambling. It is as if the author wrote a perfectly cohesive and enjoyably captivating story and the publisher said, "What's this? 400 pages? Make it 2300 and you've got a deal. Oh yeah--be sure to leave unanswered questions like 'Lost'."
My recommendation to anyone interested is to start with Vince Flynn and skip this.
