Listen to another Gray Man novel.

"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)
I did enjoy this story! It was fast enough to keep me interested! This is purely a action story, with a whisper of a romantic touch that remains lukewarm. The story focus, Court Gentry is a character I like! He is more Jason Bourne then Rambo, so female listeners can relate more to the smart combat as opposed to animalistic instincts. Not a credit waste, especally if you are road tripping with any male of age...curse words fly but story like isn't overtly sexual...Enjoy...but if this is your first by this Author...The Grey Man is awesome!
Well, Greaney has done it again. This time, his hero, Court Gentry, ends up in Mexico, where we discover the appalling corruption going on there. And, once again, poor Court is being hunted ??? this time by multiple entities wanting him dead. As in "The Gray Man," and "On Target," Greaney puts his protagonist in an impossible situation, out of which Court must extricate himself at enormous personal sacrifice. Because Mark is super-human, he manages to save himself and almost all the good guys, while eliminating all the bad guys. But we can't help but wonder how much longer Court can continue taking all this physical abuse. If you haven't yet listened to the previous two novels, I would recommend listening to them first. Each one of them can stand alone, if necessary; but they refer to previous events, so that you will enjoy each one more fully if you listen to them in order. The reader, Jay Snyder, does a truly professional, excellent job of performing all the characters. I recommend this audiobook unconditionally to all thriller-lovers.
This is the kind of book that makes you question whether reading fiction is a valuable use of time. I'm all for escapism, but this is about 85% the Gray Man escaping from situations that no one could possibly escape from. Once or twice a book, that's OK, I can suspend disbelief. But 85%?
To much hard to believe action, not enough substance. Pretty much cotton candy.
listen to book one thru three again. no power and lots of time to kill.
right from the being to the end didnt want to stop listening
Jay did a great job.loved it
hard hitting action packed
All I can say is that I love this series. Greeley obviously does his homework and research. It is very entertaining and difficult to put down. It's well worh the credit.
No one whom i can think of...
It didn't necessarily turn me off from this genre but definitely for other books by this author.
Can't imagine, unless he can become less dramatic and excitable in the performance. It was WAY over acted!!
Not that i could find.
I listened to The Gray Man and liked it pretty much, which is why i purchased Ballistic when it went on sale. It turned out to be a major disappointment so my recommendation is to save you money or credit for something better!
I like and read all the grey man novels. This one has too many long dragging out fight scenes and simply not enough surprises or a good "make you guessing" plot. I casually read ballistic while working out but not with great passion or interest.
Narration was good. Story not.
After the first few Gray Man novels the plots became increasingly strained with extensive rough and tumble chase scenes and too much unnecessary details that seemed only there to fill pages.
Narration was good.

I like the Gray Man series, but this one was a bit hard to swallow. Why DLR would go to the trouble of torturing when all he had to do was follow them and he would have gotten the prize he was after. I will give Mr. Greaney the benefit of the doubt on this one, but hope the next book is a bit more believable
