    The most unlikely terrorist enemy of all now holds a knife against the country’s throat. With both diplomatic and conventional military options swept from the table, the president calls upon Navy SEAL turned Secret Service agent Scot Harvath to disable a brilliantly orchestrated conspiracy intended to bring the United States to its knees. Teamed with beautiful Russian Intelligence agent Alexandra Ivanova and a highly trained CIA paramilitary detachment, Harvath embarks on an adrenaline-fueled search that spans the world.

    Story
    Where does State of the Union rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    Would you recommend State of the Union to your friends? Why or why not?

    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.


    What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    George's narrative voice, use of inflection and tone, masterfully brings the listener into the story. I really get lost just listening.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    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.
