State of the Union is in the middle of the pack when it comes to audiobooks that I have listened to. The narration is excellent but the overall story is a little too fantastic to believe. Part of what draws me into these types of stories is the realism. Despite Brad Thor's fairly exhaustive explanations regarding the science behind the storyline, I was never fully engaged by the story. I think George Guidall's narration is primarily what helped me stayed glued to the storyline.
I would weakly recommend State of the Union to other readers. I like the Scott Horvath character and continue to want to understand what makes him tick. As I mentioned earlier, George Guidall's narration is excellent.
George's narrative voice, use of inflection and tone, masterfully brings the listener into the story. I really get lost just listening.
I think this was Brad Thor's venture into a little bit of Sci-Fi combined with his normal writing genre. I prefer for him to stay in the geo-political terrorism sphere.
