Yes - I read these books when I was younger and have enjoyed listening to them.
Very much a lead-on from the first book. If you liked the first book you'll like the second.
This book really is another great book in the myth series. It just didn't seem to have the fast pace action of the other books. This book feels a bit more like a teenager finding their way book, rather than the usual quirky action books of the past. It still has the "how is he going to get out of this one" overall tone, but it just feels a bit flat compared to the other myth books. I'll definitely keep reading the series though.
I was worried with some of the other reviews complaining about the author's pronunciation and speed. However, after listening to the book I found his pace was actually very good for the material (and yes, probably a bit slower than most audio books, but not by much), and I really didn't notice any pronunciation issues.
Overall, the book is excellent. Was it a life changing book? Probably not, but still an incredibly good book that really does cause you to look at your own life differently and others' opinions differently.
I would strongly recommend this book to others.
I don't know of any book that is similar to the "Myth" series.
Yes - it's a fairly short book with very good pacing. Good action with a wonderful dose of dry humor.
I read these books when I was young and wasn't sure I'd enjoy them as an adult. They are as much fun (maybe even more) than I remember. The humor is fun, the modern references really add to the "dimensionality" of the book. The reader really did bring the characters from my youth alive.
I think this book could go deeper into the individual cases. It seemed to be a retelling of what mainstream news has already covered about the tech industry. The first parts of the book (the early stock market algorithms) were interesting history with a hint of the technology behind them with the later parts of the book not following history but rather retelling current events (rise of silicon valley's influence). Overall more of a history of computers taking things over similar to the industrial revolution.
In a review of the previous Mitch Rapp book I had commented that the series seemed to be moving towards more politics and less action. This book was a marked deviation from that trend. It delivered exactly what I expected, a fast paced high action spy book. Very little discussion of Washington politics and lots of action.
George Guidall once again does an excellent job of reading the book and really paces well with the story.
To me this book was a character study of someone who is having an affair...and they just happen to be a lawyer.
I missed the suspense that other reviewers have commented on. The story seemed straight forward and the twists while not anticipated were not shocking. The story really did not focus on the courtroom/law aspects but focused much more on the affair of the lead character.
The book was read very well.
This book was absolutely classic Vince Flynn. The only complaint I have is I found Flynn is starting to write more about politics than about the exploits of a CIA super-spy. Still an excellent book though.
