"Bourne for the new millennium." (James Rollins, New York Times best-selling author)
"The story is so propulsive, the murders so explosive, that flipping the pages feels like playing the ultimate video game." (The New York Times)
The Gray Man is never dull and motionless. He never falls to uncountable enemies or tight situations and in this regard he is Greaney's version of Jack Reacher. A Teflon Hero.
If you like your action novels fast, violent and just a little mindless then this is for you. I didn't expect anything else and so I was pleasantly surprised by the story. Just hang on and enjoy the ride.
A great Gray Man book! Loved the story lines, the action and the fact I was guessing different aspects throughout. Love Jay Snyder's narration!
I would recommend this book to someone who enjoys Bourne escapes and activities.
Gray Man because he can get out of any situation
Great voice and the tone fit the story
I had enough of a reaction that I bought other books in the series
Cort Gentry lives a pretty dark life.
Not quite Clive Cussler. A little unrealistic to think a person can hide from all of those agencies, legal and illegal
non stop action, bigger than life hero al la Mitch Rapp .. I admit it, I'm a sucker for a rousing cave man tale
The first chase scene comes to mind ... crocadiles/killer bees/fully automatic rifle fire... and that kind of tells the whole story
Cmon..who wouldnt be moved by our hero sliding across a phone line over the heads of a crowd in panic, accurately shooting bad guys on the other side while dodging bullets and keeping track of some innocents he was protecting
Having listened to the first Gray Man book and read the second I had high hopes for the third, but was disappointed with the story line - a bit "same old, same old" and try too hard for my liking.
Ever get the feeling that "our hero" is the only character that is worth a spit? Why is it that I feel everyone else, except maybe the love interest, is either useless, helpless, or just plain annoying? Ever come across someone who knows a bit of Spanish and inevitably it's mostly curse words? I didn't hate this book mostly because it started strong...but then it just settled into mediocre. The writing, especially the dialogue, seemed forced...not very natural. The narrator was decent. He's got a good, strong deep voice, but maybe that doesn't lend too well to female voices. Unfortunately, like the dialogue, not very natural. He's got the Spanish accent down pretty well, but what bothered me about the performance is that the narrator sounded a bit too dramatic or affected at times.
If Jason Bourne and Jack Bauer (24) had a cousin - the Gray Man would be it. This is a series that packs a great punch. The action starts and all hell breaks loose. I like it when he has to think on his feet and figure out what to do when something goes wrong.
I have read snippets of a possible movie - interested as to who will be cast as the lead.
This is a book that you dont delete. There is plenty of action and great story line
This is a book with plemty of action so to say there was a moment would be difficult. I enjoy action books so for me this was a perfect choice
This is my first experience of Jay and I am very happy with his performance of delivery.
I didnt laugh or cry but I could not turn it off. I try to extend the listening time of books but it was difficult to turn this one off.You know you are enjoying it when you sit in the driveway and listen to more.
"Court Gentry never disappoints"
Not read the print version, but it is unabridged so should be identical
The restaurant scene in PV where the grey man shows up to torment his target with a severed head, explosives and daring
He delivers great drama, and puts a lot into the different speaking parts
"A one man solution to the war on drugs"
Great story, faced paced and totally compelling. I find with the Grey Man novels that I go out of my way for extra listening opportunities
