The only thing that could be better was if this novel was twice as long. I just hate it when a Mitch Rapp novel ends.
Stumbled across this book and based on the reviews I took a chance. Really enjoyed the book even though I wished it was longer. The narration was well done and given that I'm a dog lover I could really relate to the story line.
Be forewarned, if you've never listened to Dick Hill portray female characters it's worse than having bad dental work. Every female voice is the same, nasally, weak sounding voice that you hear from actors imitating bimbos. What's worse is that one of the main character was a 12-yr old girl so there was no break from it. Two hours into the book I was hoping the girl would be kidnapped and halfway through I was praying she'd just be killed off so I wouldn't have to listen to that voice.
The story started off okay but gradually began to drag on. I'm sure the narration had something to do with it but this will most likely be my last Nathan McBride book. I know I won't be listening to anything else by Dick Hill unless the producers hire a separate actor to read the female parts.
Enjoyed the story but it's one of the few that would have worked better for me if I had read it via listening to it. It took me a while before I started to get the gist of what was happening and by then it would have been nice to "flip back" into the book and reference some of the earlier parts of the story.
Great narration though, top notch performances.
On an aside, the book convinced me NOT to pay money to watch the movie in the theater. I don't see how they can capture of book of this length and depth into a single movie. I'll wait for the DVD but to plan on watching it.
