Another fine book from Coonts. I found this book just as entertaining as I have all the Jake and Tommy adventures. Coonts has changed his style somewhat over the years and I like it. Of course his works are fiction and he can do what ever he wants but he has toned down the oh sure factor. The Disciple has just the right amount of wait a minute this might happen in it.
They just get better. Some of the other reviews had me worried. They said to many potential suspects to twisted. I started to not buy this book, I almost skipped over it. I'm sure glad I didn't. Yes there are a lot of suspects and yes it takes a lot of twist and turns but isn't that what a good book is to do? You'll get your money's worth with this one. Enjoy
All of the previous books in the Lucas Davenport series have had twist and turns and this addition certainly has that as well. Sandford referrers to previous plot lines and incorporates characters from earlier book into Secret Prey with expert precision. Sandford's main character is a very complicated man but also he is a very simple man. Lucas seems to always dealing with moral and personal dilemmas while he is chasing the bad guys. It seems to me Lucas is putting some of his personal demons to rest in this book. Its a nice touch. The ending is different, very different indeed. Enjoy I sure did.
This ibook is my favorite in the Prey series so far. Nice job on how Sandford has grown Lucas. Someone else's review thought Sandford used to much profanity. I thought it sounded realilistic. Do yourself a favor and this series in order. Enjoy.
To me there is a great deal of similarities between Andrew Peterson and Lee Childs writing style. Each of their main characters are very similar. I found I like Peterson and his McBride character better. If you have not listened to Peterson and you like writers like Childs, Silva, and Coonts I think you will like Peterson. Give the McBride series a try I don't think you will be disappointed.
How does Flynn do it? The Mitch Rapp series just keeps getting better. More mature, more cynical, more human all of Flynn's characters from Mitch Rapp to Kennedy and right on down the line. If I had a problem and I don't is the way Flynn portrays the wives of his main characters. Yes I can believe it is very hard on the wives of men who work in the clandestine world not knowing where or just what their husbands are doing. How much danger they are in or not in. But that is true of any relationship between couples, Policemen, firemen, miners, truck drives, many men have dangerous jobs that are important. No they don't go around having gun battles on a daily basis but their jobs are dangerous. Fantastic series do yourself a favor and read the complete series starting with the 1st book. Flynn may not be one of the all time writer of classic literature but he sure fits my taste. I would much rather have a great Double Cheeseburger with fries and a chocolate shake than a steak dinner. Flynn's Rapp series is the great American Double Cheeseburger to me. I want MORE not just a second helping I want a100 helpings of Mitch Rapp and company.
This is insane. I feel like I am addicted to this series. I am completely sleep deprived because of Vince Flynn. My wife is looking for a series to read. I told her the Mitch Rapp character is better than Jason Bourne. She said well I will read one and see. Boy is she in for a surprise. She doesn't believe me. Once she starts this series I won't see her again till this fall.
I can't say enough good things about Vince Flynn's writings. Rapp just keeps getting better and better.
This is crazy. I almost wish my brother hadn't put me onto Vince Flynn. I am going through this complete series as fast as I can. I catch my self listening to this series when I should be doing other things. I am buying this series two and three books at a time. My one book a month subscription isn't working very well on this series. I just can't wait till next month for another credit. I am buy three extra credits a month so I can get this series completed. I simply love this series. Mitch Rapp has become my favorite "good guy". Much more down to earth and realistic than Jack Reacher or Cotton Malone. I wish I had the money to buy the movie rights for this complete series. If ever there was a series that would be a fantastic movie series this is it. Every bit as good or better than the Jason Bourne.
I read some of the other reviews before I bought this book. I have listened to several of the Mitch Rapp series and enjoyed everyone of them. Some of the complaints that other reviewers had were in regards to the narrator. I saw nothing wrong with Nick Sullivan's narration as a matter of fact I think he is one of the better readers that I have heard.
I grew up in the era of weekly serials and I loved them. I personally like the way Mr. Flynn builds for a series. The Third Option is fine entertainment and worth the price. Enjoy, I certainly did.
I had read some of the other reviews and was a little worried when I bought this book. I was not disappointed at all. I found it as good any of Follett's work. The Eye of the needle was a very good book and I found Silva did as well if not better with The Unlikely Spy.
I will listen to this book a second time. The Unlikely Spy is one of Silva's best works.
