Yes, because it tells a great story of what happened during Operation Red Wings. However, there is a LOT of Navy recruiting going on during the book. I understand Marcus is proud, and rightfully so. But I can not help but wonder if during the editing by the Navy if it was recommended to amp up the bravado.
The fake Texas accent put on by Kevin Collins was horrible. I got use to it about a 1/3 of the way into the book. There were times when he was talking about his fellow Seals screaming out that Collins cocked it up pretty good. The dramatic flare in points was less than desirable.
I listened to the book in 2 days. Once you got past the Seals training, which was necessary to understand the relationships, the actual story of Operation Red Wings was captivating.
On a personal note. What Marcus Lattrel and the rest of his Seal brothers endured and went through was saddening. There are highs and lows in the story and it makes you understand A. What it takes to be a Seal. B. What those heroes went through on the top on that mountain.
Rapp is great. I like Kennedy as well.
He is REALLY nasaly and makes Mitch Rapp sound like a whining wuss. Additionally, there are certain words that he miss pronounces Live (L eye v) not (L ih v) There are a host of other words that he uses the hard vowel rather than the soft like it should be.
Of all the books I have listened to this guy is the WORST.
So very much like Brad Thor and Clancy but with some funny characters that just drip with the GI smart@$$ness I use to deal with in the Army. I cracked up so many times it made my side hurt.
Even though he is an older narrator. He really does help to make the characters come alive. I like his animated way of reading.
YES... YES.... YES... If I did not have to work to pay for these audiobooks I would have finished it in one day.
I will be getting the rest of these, either in book or audiobook. Fantastic writing and I am excited to read the rest of the series.
Lou and some of the content made it mind numbing at times. I am a huge Clancy fan... But this one missed it.
The narration was a bit eh... Also they tend to get really long and boring in setting up some of the characters. Actually made the book boring. I guess I just need to stick to Clancy classics.
In the top 10.
Scott Horvath. He is the lead character, and one bad dude.
He is a fantastic narrator unlike others. Listening to him is not mind numbing. He makes the book that much better.
