    "Nice spin-off, good listen"

    OK, I'm a Mitch Rapp, Scott Harvath, Alex Hawk, Jack Ryan, James bond fan. Yes, this book does not compare to those, but I believe the Project has promise. These ladies were introduced in "Foreign Influence" by Thor, so you should read that if you want more info on the new characters. I enjoyed the new addition to Harvath's circle of friends. I will definitely give this group of ladies another chance when Thor releases the next volume.

    "Just Not Good"

    I'm a big Thor fan but I wish I would have listened to the other reviewers and passed on this book. This one lacks the realism of his other books. Character development is lacking, there is zero suspense, his females operatives don't come across as professionals with all the discussion of who's dating who, fashion choices, etc. It's just....not good, and not a representation of Thor's usual ability.

    "The Athena Project"

    I have listened to over 400 audiobooks, most of them thrillers. This is a great start to a new series (hopefully). As with most, the narrater makes the book and Marvel is great. I look forward to book #2 of The Athena Project.

    "Only okay"

    This was an okay listen, although it seemed pretty formulaic. The "all ladies team" was an interesting idea, but the author's understanding of how women interact with each other is very, very limited. The story was fine and the narration was fine. One thing: although this is unabridged, it sounds abridged to me. It has odd little jumps and if it truly is unabridged, then it has some editing issues.

    "Ok if you like rambetes"

    It was ok I guess - I hoped it would go into the selection and training of the unit but it didn't. The action got a little sci fi there for a bit.

    If you like Cussler you'd probabbly enjoy this

    "Worst ever"

    Terrible, boring, sexist. Worst audible book I have purchased in more than a decade. Don't bother.

    "Charlies Angels"

    Good grief! It's Charlies Angels all over again, but with more weapons. Perhaps it appeals to the girls best, but it's just not my taste.

    "Fun book to listen to"

    I thought this book was entertaining. Not quite as heavy as some of his other books. Just a fun listen

    "Better off watching Charlie's Angels"

    What a waste of time and production effort. Please don't bother with this "book". It is too pitiful to actually review
