  • The Last Man: A Novel

    The four dead guards didn’t concern Mitch Rapp as much as the absence of the man they’d been paid to protect. Joe Rickman wasn’t just another foot soldier. For the last eight years Rickman had ran the CIA’s clandestine operations in Afghanistan. It was a murky job that involved working with virtually every disreputable figure in the Islamic Republic. More than a quarter billion dollars in cash had passed through Rickman’s hands during his tenure as the master of black ops and no one with a shred of sense wanted to know the details of how that money had been spent.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Last Man to be better than the print version?

    Not sure


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Pretty much guessed how the plot would twist and turn based on this author's style but I still enjoyed listening.


    Have you listened to any of George Guidall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    George Guidall's performance is totally up to his usual standard of excellence.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not really


    Any additional comments?

    Good for a long drive to help keep alert. I listened on long walks as well.

    A writer visits his retired grandparents in Florida to document their experience during the infamous siege of Leningrad. His grandmother won't talk about it, but his grandfather reluctantly consents. The result is the captivating odyssey of two young men trying to survive against desperate odds. Lev Beniov considers himself "built for deprivation." He's small, smart, and insecure, a Jewish virgin too young for the army, who spends his nights working as a volunteer firefighter with friends from his building.

    Admiral Jake Grafton takes his wife, Callie, along when the U.S. government sends him to Hong Kong to find out how deeply the American consul-general is embedded in a political money-raising scandal. And why not? Jake and Callie met and fell in love in Hong Kong during the Vietnam War, and the consul-general is a friend from those days.

    Overall

    I should have listened to the preview. The narrator was TERRIBLE! I could have narrated the book better myself. It is like he just picked up the book an started reading. His chinese accents were absolutely cartoonish. I really could not tell you if the plot or storyline were good as it was painful to listen to the book.
