I've been a huge fan of W.E.B. Griffin for more than 20 years and I'm sad to say that since he's started writing with his son the books have become much less enjoyable. The Presidential Agents series started off as enjoyable, though not up to his earlier series, but as each book in this series has come out it has gotten steadily more rote and repetitive. It seems unlikely that I will continue to read this series.
I love the genre and I love Griffin's earlier works. I'll likely just go back and revisit those wonderful books.
The acting of the book was fine for what it was. It was easy to follow who was speaking as the reader had distinctive voices for everyone. I will say that weather he was written that way or it was the readers interpretation, the President was such an SOB that I found myself not being able to wait until the chapter was over every time the story switched to the Presidential POV.
No, not really.
I think followers of W.E.B. Griffin know that usually his books are all about the interactions between the characters and not necessarily about the action. That being said, all of the interaction in this book are boring and repetitive. They basically sit around for the whole book talking about the same things over and over and then resolve the major plot point in a couple of paragraphs. I came away with the impression that the authors are working to turn out as many books as possible with not a lot of thought to the quality and the enjoyment of fans.
