Classic Mitch Rapp, which for me, is a good thing. I am reading the series in order and this did not disappoint.
I have read all of this series to date and I really liked this story until about what should have been halfway through the book we went to the end. It's as if he hit his deadline and said f**k it, that will have to do. At least warn us next time.
I have liked all of the Gray Man books to date but this one I found myself not able to leave alone. Usually I listen in my car to and from work. This one had me going so much I would find myself wondering how in the hell he was going to get out of this or that situation. I ended up listening at my desk during (ok, and a little bit after) lunch. I've never done that. Sometimes doing chores around the house but never at work. It had a lot of action and a little more character development which I welcomed. I am starting on the last of the series tomorrow.
I have listened to or read all of these books and I honestly think that this one was the best as it had, it seems to me, more character development than many of the previous books. I have enjoyed them all but damn if this one didn't hit me hard. I listen to music because of how it makes me feel, hell because it makes me feel. This book felt good and was definitely a good listen. Thank you Mr. Eisler.
I found the last few books somewhat disappointing, They were adequate but I believe if you were not a fan of the series there would have been little reason to recommend them. This book could stand on it's own except for Reacher's obsession with reaching Virginia. It was a fast paced story that I did not want to stop listening to. I was late to work a few mornings as I needed to finish a chapter in the car before going in to work. I truly enjoyed this one and I hope the character makes it to Virginia someday........
I have resisted Stephen King books and this series in particular for a long time out of some not so well masked prejudice against horror authors. I was swayed after reading 11/22/63. My preferences tend to go towards mystery / suspense and absurd humor. I checked out reviews of King's other works and figured I'd give this one a shot. If you are stuck looking for something different I suggest you try this book as it has opened a whole new world for me. Damn, I need more credits.
To me, this was like half of a book, a setup for the next one, I hope that it is good because there will have to be a lot of raving reviews to get me to give up a credit for it.
Good author, good story. I'll miss Harry when he gets too old to hijack black and white's.
I'm not much of a critic. I either like a book, or I don't finish it. I finished it.
I'm sorry if you are looking for objectivity in a review, because you'll find none here. I love everything this man writes. The narration by Will Patton is the only thing that could possibly make it better than it is.
