Vince Flynn is hands down one of my three favorite authors. I consume his books like a hungry man waiting for his next meal. As the character of Mitch Rapp has developed over the years, we have all become familiar with his pragmatic patriotic views of life. He is the man many of us wish we could be or would be if we could. Our familiarity with Rapp is encoded in the consistency of his behavior and in the sound of his voice.
I have no idea if Vince Flynn envisioned Rapp sounding like George Guidall, but once he did and once we all connected with the master spy, the partnership between the Flynn and Guidall was forged in the mind of the listener forever.
As I said, I love Vince Flynn's writing style and I love his development of the Mitch Rapp Series. I am so pleased that we are finally getting full unabridged versions of his earlier work. But, serving up my long awaited next Mitch Rapp Book without the voices of George Guidall is like serving a hungry man dinner without a plate or silverware. I will eat because I am hungry, but I will remember when I enjoyed a fine dining experience and long for better times with each and every bite!
Vince Flynn gets 5 stars for his writing but the Nick Sullivan gets 3 stars for his [occasional robotic] reading = 4 stars.
