The story is very good, but I could not get past the performance. It sounded like it was being read by a teenage mutant ninja turtle or Keanu Reeves in point break - Just awful for the story being told.
It was an intriguing tale, like The Lincoln Lawyer it had twists and turns and a few good laughs and kept me interested.
In every way - there was no redeeming quality
I think the book should be re recorded with a different performer.
I read this book because of the title, not over promising anything but 10% is worth the purchase price. The book is full of every day information and tips and there are laugh out loud moments along the way. He describes an inner dialogue that has long plagued me and sums up how to remain driven without as dan puts it "being a dick!" It lives up to the promise of giving self help tips that work and it seems well researched. If you have listened to and enjoyed self help books involving meditation and the topic of enlightenment in the past but feel some practical tips would benefit you, then this book will give the topic a whole new fresh look without the monotone and torturously slow delivery of some others in the genre. 10/10
Maybe in a couple of years. it was a great story.
I was introduced to the Series by American Assassin which I loved, Kill Shot was good too. Sadly I had to endure some of the early books to get right through the series and they got better and better with a small lull in the middle. This was a great novel by an author at the top of his game.
I enjoyed the Mike Nash part of the story and his conflict between being a family man and a Counter terrorism operative.
Extreme Measures and Pursuit are the same book cut into 2. You need to listen to them both close together but it is a great end to the series if he only continues to write prequels.
Really? Is this a real question?
As an actor with an english accent and the fact he seems to be trying to sound a little like Winston Churchill it is a unique listen as opposed to just reading the book.
I like to spread books out and listen to different ones at different times, driving, exercising etc. I would not be able to sit still long enough to listen to any 12 hour book in one sitting.
These questions do not give you a chance to do the book justice. It is one of the most unique perspectives available for a major historical event in human history written by an exceptional writer who was right in the middle of it and on face value admits his own mistakes, does not crucify others he feels may have been making mistakes at the time. It is a balanced description of international relations at the time, why Hitler became so powerful in Germany and why no one wanted to do anything about it. It is also a unique outline of the political environment in Britain at the time and a great insight into the difference technology made to warfare between the first and second world wars. Anyone interesting in the second world war I don't think you will be disappointed with this Volume of The Second World War by Winston Chuchill.
It is in the top half
Tyrrien - He is an intelligent character who seems to have a good moral compass and he also provides a lot of comic relief
This story has not yet reached any great heights, there are a lot of long conversations and plots to follow. It is not action packed, but has enough to keep me interested
Not really - I picked the big twist at the end 10 minutes into it and only really listened to make sure I wasn't mistaken.
This book didn't grab me and books written in first person narratives can sometimes work - like the Lincoln Lawyer, but this one didn't have the same intrigue.
He delivered the story well and played the characters OK
Middle of the range, the story makes up for the narration which has been spoken about a lot. Compared to American Assassin which set the tone for the series for me, Nick Sullivan does not encapsulate the Mitch Rapp Genre, but after the first 20 minutes you get used to him.
I have come from reading the scarecrow series to this and they are in the same vain. The Mitch Rapp series is a little more involved and cerebral, and still has the action sequences. I think it is a good book but I dont have a direct comparison.
In his own way yes he did.
Don't let all the negative reviews stop you from listening to this book. Nick Sullivan is not George Guidell, but he is a lot better than the guy who reads separation of power - wait till you get to that one! This is a great book and you will get used to the narration after a short while
Yes, it is a good story, edge of the seat stuff, with some good laughs mixed in.
It is in the vain of the Mitch Rapp series and if you like American Assassin or Transfer of Power you will not be dissappointed here.
I listened to Transfer of power before this one and I was used to him, by this book. He is OK.
I am not sure if I could put up with the narrator again.
This book is a good, stage in the story and from half way in to it I could not stop listening. Thoroughly enjoyable story
Yes - George Guidell
An enjoyable listen, but the story has to make up for a lot given the awful voice of the narrator
