This was a great story. This is my second time reading it. The first time, I read the book, but this time I wanted to listen to it, have it fresh in my mind and get ready for part 2. Jada and Born are beautiful together. Born is standup guy and loves Jada despite all she's been through. I hated for Jada to hurt him like she did, but that addiction thing was calling her strong. Sunny is a great friend and I hope she can get over Dorian and move on with her life.
The change Ryan made in his life and how determined he was to save her.
I don't believe I've read a book quite like this one.
Without giving too much away, but if I had to pick one scene, it would be the part at the end where Bethany makes the right decision to fix her problem for good.
I would because hearing the words spoken like they should be said by a good narrator makes all the difference and makes the story come alive.
The first love scene between Cassidy and Claire was extremely HOT and erotic.
Her acting was very good and her voices of each character was very distinctive.
I didn't have an extreme reaction to this book but I enjoyed it very much.
I'm a Sandra Brown fan and she never disappoints.
I would recommend this story because it was well written and kept you interested in the main characters and most importantly, because it lives up to it's genre. It was extremely erotic in a very real way.
I'm a sucker for happy endings and this story did not disappoint in that area.
Average at best.
I didn't have an extreme reaction but it did leave me with a good feeling and yes I both laughed and cried(a little).
I really enjoyed this book. It's a good story with some very sexy scenes. The narrators voice as Ella, the main character, was pretty good, but I did not like the narrator's male voices. The tone threw me off as well as how she said certain things. The tone just wasn't right sometimes. It comes across as bad acting.
This was my first Gillian Flynn novel and it was a really good read. The whole story had me on a roller coaster ride. The ups and downs… the twists and turns… By the end of the story, I was a bit worn out but my curiosity of how the story would end held me captive. Nick and his wife Amy are some pretty sad individuals. I felt more pity for Nick though, and I kept rooting for him, wanting him to win, so to speak. The ending of the novel totally jacked me up. I was in a daze, like, Wow! Really!
When I’m reading a book or looking at a movie, it’s a form of escapism for me so I really love happy endings. Life itself has too many harsh endings and tough lessons to deal with, so when I read or look at movies, I like to come away with a good feeling or at least have learned something. That being said, I did not like the ending of this book. Not only did it not end happy for Nick or anyone else, but it also felt incomplete. I was on such a high and so engrossed in the story, and then all of a sudden…SPLAT, the story takes a deep fall off a tall building and that’s it…it’s over.
Although I did not like the ending, it does not take away from the story so much that I would not give this book a good rating. But it does keep me from giving it 5 stars, but it’s really on the cusp for me, definitely a 4.5.
This book is definitely in my Top 30. If I had to rank it with books in it's own genre, it would be in my Top 20.
Art Montana and Callan would have to be my favorite characters. Art, becuase he's a good guy with morals and a conscience but with issues. Callan is my fav because he's a bad guy who has a heart and who could be a good guy. He's very likeable.
I loved everything about Ray Porter's narration. This is not my first time hearing him and I always enjoy hearing him. His voice is awesome! He makes the books he does even better. I didn't find anything wrong with his narration.
This book is 20+ hours but it didn't feel like it all. I was hoping there was another book involving some of these characters, but I didn't find one. So I'm just going to listen to another Don Winslow book that's narrated by Ray Porter...on to The Dawn Patrol.
The story line in and of itself made this listening experience enjoyable. It completed all the unanswered questions from The Third Option and held me captive all the way through.
I stayed on the edge of my seat, not because there was so much action in this novel like some of the others, but because there was a lot going on. I loved how when you left one situation, the author would leave you with a bit of a ciff-hanger. I would be anxious to get back to that situation. But as I kept on reading, I'd find myself caught up again, only to find myself getting left with another mini cliff-hanger. It was great!
Intense, dramatic and overdone
The whole scene when Mitch comes home after the raid on Bagdad moved me deeply. The chemisty between him and Anna is wonderful.
I was a bit thrown by the narrators dramatic voice and intensity but I continued to listen because I'm a Mitch Rapp fan. I'm glad I continued to listen because the story was awesome. The ending was so appropriate.
I would definitely recommend this audiobook to a friend because it's full of intensity, action and is overall a great read/listen!
All the scenes of Mitch in the White House are memorable.
Nick does a pretty good job with the different voices. You can always tell who's talking.
The scene that moved me was when Mitch Rapp felt he couldn't sit by and let a devistating act occur to this young woman even though he knew he could possiblly jepardize his whole mission. The tenderness he displayed with the young woman let you see the human side him as well.
I am a huge Mitch Rapp fan and would love to see this character go on and on.
Mitch Rapp is an awesome lead character. I don't think I'll ever get enough of this guy. This novel was full of intense action and drama. It was just great!
I enjoyed every minute of this novel. Even the lag in the action was proper and necessary to the story. Mitch Rapp was at his finest and George Guidall is a great narrator. I would hate to hear this series read by someone else. Great job Vince Flynn.
I always enjoy when the author goes back to the beginning and let you see how it all started. It gives you so much insight on the lead character and it helps when the author makes that read as exciting as this one.
