Sophomoric. A heroine copied from Stieg Larsson. Trite SoCal dialogue and plot.
I've read every one of Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp novels and loved them. Until this one. Anna sounded like a neurotic, dependent b-tch. Absolutely not the kind of woman that Rapp would fall for.
Rapp seemed weak and whiny, unlike his personna in all the other books. Yes, true love should thaw the heart of even the hardest man. There are limits.
Hard to know. He certainly missed this one by a mile. Yes, the writing was weak. Nevertheless, his delivery made Rapp sound like a timid high school girl.
The entire Anna and Mitch in Milan breakup scene should have been reworked.
Great description of the science and recreation of big waves. However, never have I heard so many Hawaiian words pronounced so badly by the narrator. Kirsten Potter could have saved herself considerable embarrassment if only she had spent five minutes running the names of local venues past even the most minimally informed Hawaiian tourist.
This guy is eager to show us how clever he is, how may big words he can use and how ill prepared we, the readers, are to digest his pompous tripe. I quit after half the book.
