Enjoyable but, as a reader of all the other books in this series, it is getting a bit stale. Gabriel Allon is becoming less likable and more arrogant. Too bad really because he had a great, if tortured soul. Perhaps, Silva is getting board of his series.
The ending was good. Also predictable.
He is easy to listen to. You can generally distinguish the various speakers.
No sure I would listen if there was. Certain parts, (two turns to the right, two turns to the left) got down right annoying.
Mitch Rapp is a consistent and, until this book, a likable character. In this book he becomes increasingly political as he succumbs to 'mission creep'. His whole focus seems to be to make a statement about the expeditious nature of torture, rather than get on with the work that he does best. There is little 'story' in this book as the 'story' is replaced with a whole lot of grandstanding.
Not books of this genre, but perhaps no more from Flynn.
Guidall's performance is the saving grace of this 'tortured' book.
I wouldn't 'cut' a character, but I would cut the whole senate scene where the inquiry into torture is explored.
Anyone who enjoys Zombies as a story character should really enjoy this book. The story telling started out very entertaining and well written (if a little egotistical), but when it hit the zombie mode I bailed.
I enjoy 'special ops' type stories, it was the fantasy factor that I didn't find appealing.
This series is superb and Patrick Tull's narration is sublime. This might be my favorite of all! The high drama, the incredible story line and the meticulous characterizations combine to provide perfect satisfaction.
The depictions are so carefully detailed with sight, sound and smell that the experience could hardly be more real if one experienced it.
You can instantly tell who is speaking. Not only are the voices perfectly rendered the phrasing is a golden globe performance.
I would cheer Jack with bumpers three times three.
The best series and narration. period.
