I enjoyed everything it about the book but the ending. It was a bit anticlimactic and left much unfinished business with the arms dealer and the mole.
John Grisham is a masterful storyteller. His grasp of law, the southern culture is unparalleled. His ability to describe things is never over the top and always specific enough I can smell the grits and taste the coffee. He is an American treasure and this book is another in a long line of emotional, twisted plots with characters you love, despise and want to meet. I would rather be in a courtroom with Grisham than Johnny Cochran!
Loved Dewey and the complexity of the story. The plot was predictable but the development was awesome and surreal.
Dewey. He is complex and interesting. His backstory is good and I look forward to the development of the character.
Weird, but the scene where he broke up the fight on the rig. I could feel his authority as I listened.
Not really, but it kept me listening for sure.
I look forward to seeing how his efforts to be out of the public eye serves him in future roles.
The unbelievableness of the situations Cort Gentry is constantly into. His experiences keep me ont he edge of my seat.
The whole idea of the drug cartels and the likelihood of the reality of the corruption they can bring to the table. It is a reasonable idea to be reality.
He's pretty good. He's no George Guidall but he is pretty good. He has Gentry down for sure.
I hope this series goes further than 3 books. While the plots and experiences are a bit over the top, they are what makes them interesting. I would also love to see Gentry reconciled with the U.S. government.
The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because of the overall direction and development of the character of Rapp. The marriage seems to be taking Rapp into a person that I didn't fall in love with. He has always been on the front line and I relished int he details of his use of weaponry and methodology of his assassin work. I miss that. I am less enthralled with the political maneuvers with him being involved on this side of it as opposed to being the real tip of the spear.
Not as much as in the past. It was very good, but not as complex. I figured it out less than halfway through the book.
He could read the dictionary to me. He does justice to the character of Mitch Rapp. I won't listen to anyone else do him anymore.
Not really. It didn't bring me to laughter, or dread, or complexity. It was good.
I hope Rapp's marriage fails and he goes back to being an assassin.
The detail and development of the characters of Mitch and the others. It was slow and deliberate but never lost me for a second.
Absolutely. It was riveting and I could feel the future assignment coming.
The inevitable showdown between Rapp and his trainers who thought he had went rogue. I felt the betrayal and cunning and imminent revenge Rapp felt as it approached. The scene when Rapp gets to exact his revenge in the last scene was incredible.
The capture of Stan was PRICELESS! His interaction with his captors was hilarious. I laughed out loud almost the whole time.
I have only listened to the first 2 so far but I am disappointed Stan did not return and there was a 10 year gap and his absence.
Biggest complaint was no George. Story was fairly riveting as a plotline. I am not sure how believable it is but entertaining nonetheless. I found myself most lost in the details of the insane American politics and Aziz' assessment of the political landscape. He hits it head on. The one complaint I had for the book that I felt was a gaping hole is there was ZERO mention of the undoubtedly tireless interviews the FBI would have performed on the hostages first released by Aziz. I could not believe this was not mentioned as part of the rescue plot line.
Overall. Mitch is pretty much the best but Stansfield is also very close second.
Yes I suppose. But I found his attention to detail in diction and enunciation annoying. He does not provide the drama Guidal does.
Not quite. But close.
First of all, Armand Schultz needs a raise. He has made Scot Harvath come to life in this series. Second, while not as complicated in plot development, it was no less thrilling. The progression of the story made it impoosible to stop listening! Finally, the believability of this story was intriguing. I was glued to in part because I think the thought processes have a scary reality. Outstanding. Already downloaded the next one..
The ending. I loved the interrogation of Ashford and Scot disposing of Standing.
His characterizations are spot on. Love his energy and pace.
No. But I do gesture occasionally while listening. And, I do give an occasional..."Yeah"!
Great book. Please keep writing these Brad!
