If this book was rated like a movie it would be in the "R" range. He uses the "F" word its variations throughout the whole book. I just can't take it anymore. No more Chris Philbrook for me!
The consistent "sailor" language.
I thought the narration was the best part of this book series. Sorry, but after the 3rd book I had to put it down because of the MF's and "F" word. I mean it is used so many times that they word ceased to have meaning at all.
Nothing out of the ordinary except for the narration from James Foster.
You might enjoy this listen if you are a son of perdition or someone who is headed for hell.
This story reads like a bad dream. It ends in mid-story just when it starts getting going.
A good novel from Lee Childs.
There was only one.
Mostly a waist of time.
Predicable so in that sense it wasn't entertaining.
The opening scene was good.
The main character needs an overhaul. Larry would have been his first casualty, but for some reason the author decided to leave Larry until the last. So, what is so original about that? Does that mean the author can't create another bad guy? Is a bad guy even needed? The situation was enough.
Because it could happen to us.
Because our fighting men take a back seat and basically or are second class citizens, nevertheless, when the rubber meets the road you can expect stellar performance. As far as the depiction of the seal community in the book, I believe this selfless service to be very close to real life.
The only part of the story line that was a redo is the part at the very end where they helo the nuke out to sea. Vince Flynn did this in one of his books.
I will say that it does move your emotions.
Scott is right up there with Vince. George Guidall is my all time favorite reader.
I liked the story line. The book was hard to listen to because of the unnatural flow of words. This is one book that I would have enjoyed much better with Scott Brick or George reading.
No way. Two was enough for me.
I will listen to the samples much closer from now on. I will assume the crew in the final book all go down with the reader.
Total Control is a masterful work by one of my favorite writers. You don't know what happened until the very last few chapters. The good are bad and the bad are good with the exception of one good agent.
When Agent Sawyer tells Gant where to get off.
His performance is transparent to the listener and doesn't get in the way of a very powerful story.
For me it didn't make me neither laugh or cry. There is a very strong female role who was the dominating character. Personally I have no problem with it. I often thing that females are stronger in curtain circumstances than males. Sydney is a woman that every man dreams about, but few find.
Given the genre that goes along with my taste and interests, it is one of the best stories and if I may add one of the most unpredictable I have ever heard.
Like all Vince Flynn novels the story flows. No factoids that sound like they read from a spec sheet like so many tech novels today. Just human interactions that are timeless and true to character. His books read like Baldacci or Grisham - like an engaging, action-packed story.
Dr. Kennedy she is Rap's boss and the DCI of CIA. She is the mind behind Rap who is tough and gets the job done. Rap is the muscle.
George Guidall is the best of the best. No one can touch him. He performs so that all the characters are their own. I never get confused about who is speaking or doing something in the story.
When Dr. Kennedy caught that FBI piece of crap trying to get into see Rap in the hospital.
Bad guys you love to hate makes the Rap series so good.
From the two Masters. What else could you expect? Vince Flynn and George Guidall both masters of their realms. I was glad to pay for this one when I usually wait for a library copy.
Mind numbing scrap. If there is a story line in this one, I didn't disearn it or maybe I just didn't want to sort it out.
