Black List: Scot Harvath, Book 11 | [Brad Thor]

Black List: Scot Harvath, Book 11

Somewhere, deep inside the United States government, is a deadly list. Members of Congress never get to see it and only the president has the final say over it. Once your name is on the list, it doesn't come off - until you're dead. Someone has just added counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath's name to the list. Somehow, Harvath must evade the teams dispatched to kill him long enough to untangle who has framed him and why they want him out of the way.

Publisher's Summary

From number one New York Times best-selling author Brad Thor comes his most explosive thriller yet. Packed with action, intrigue, and sublime plotting, Black List is the ultimate tale of deception in a world where "even in death" secrets can no longer be kept.

Somewhere, deep inside the United States government, is a deadly list. Members of Congress never get to see it and only the president has the final say over it. Once your name is on the list, it doesn't come off - until you're dead.

Someone has just added counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath's name to the list.

Somehow, Harvath must evade the teams dispatched to kill him long enough to untangle who has framed him for treason and why they want him out of the way.

Somewhere, someone, somehow can put all the pieces together. The only question is: Will Harvath get to that person before the United States comes under the most withering domestic terrorist attack ever conceived?

    Story
    "If you love conspiracy theories, go for it!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Like I said, if you like conspiracy theories, espionage, FBI, NSA, CIA kind of books, I'd recommend this one for you.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Black List?

    The way that Harvath describe his sequence of thoughts, how he thinks before, during and after all his assaults.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Its hard to point just one but I'd say that I really like the one that Nicolas talk about his life and how he ended up in Texas to help his friend.

    Story
    "Conspiracy Theory or Reality?"

    Brad Thor is meticulous at his research. He has said that his novels are "faction" - a blending of fact and fiction. They can be spooky and lean one toward paranoia. This one is no different.

    It's a solid continuation of the Scot Harvath series with excellent narration by Armand Schultz.

    If you are a fan of Thor's novels, this one will not disappoint.

    Story
    "Another great Scott Harvath novel"
    If you could sum up Black List in three words, what would they be?

    Well paced story, with a nice open ending for the next story


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nicholas and Scott are a tie. They work well together an compliment each other well in there abilites


    What does Armand Schultz bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He's one of my favorite readers. He lends good gravity to the story.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was great to finally know why the last book ended the way it did and for there to be some retribution.


    Any additional comments?

    Hate trying to review books cause I hate spoilers :)

    Story
    "Great true to life story, ruined by Armand Schultz"
    If you could sum up Black List in three words, what would they be?

    What the ****


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot was very real. Very true to life. I'm glad someone finally wrote a book about it.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Armand Schultz?

    Dick Hill, or George Guidall.. anybody but Schultz. He can't do voices. The Russian Dwarf sounded like a 6 year old american schoolboy. I'll never get another Brad Thor book if he keeps using Armand.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The end of freedom


    Any additional comments?

    Most audial book listeners I know prefer a good narrator to a good book, The narrator can make a so so book into a good book if he is good and a bad narrator can destroy a good book. I can't believe Brad Thor doesn't know the difference.

    Story
    "No, thanks"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I'm not sure anything could save a book with such a simplistic view of complex geopolitics, with cartoon characters who are all either "Patriots" or "Evildoers Who Want to Bring Down America".


    What could Brad Thor have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Learn about the world from somewhere other than the Fox News Channel, or in addition to Fox News Channel, because it really isn't that simple.


    What does Armand Schultz bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He did a good job with material where all the good guys have the same personality.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Black List?

    I bought this book and "Full Black" based on the reviews so I listened to them as a unit. The author presented many things as facts which would have been better presented as the opinions of his characters. From tropes about Islam to negative implications about people who believe that free markets won't fix some of the political and economic challenges faced by the US. The author, and not just the characters, seemed unaware that there are progressive patriots, there are ordinary-looking people who are heroic, "All American" doesn't necessarily mean blond hair and blue eyes, the entire population of the US isn't white and that many, many "ordinary Muslims" have spoken out against extremism. A little bit of research would also have revealed that countries and civilizations fall when those in power take such huge steps to consolidate their power and pull up ladders behind them that they weaken the meritocracy that leads to innovation and progress, not just when people vote for leaders who will give them what they want! In fact, history has more examples of the former than the latter. And villains really should be more than cardboard cutouts, even if that means doing some actual research into radicalization and the complexity of international/intercultural dynamics.The editor of the book should take a lesson from the "Wall Street Journal": it is always necessary to separate your editorial page from the substance of what your readers have paid for. Even people who agree with you don't necessarily want a political polemic built into every aspect of your story. And when that polemic is factually inaccurate, that just makes the reader cringe and takes him or her out of the story.


    Any additional comments?

    I won't be buying any other books by this author. Right now I'm listening to a Baldacci and it's a relief to read complex views of politics with multi-faceted characters.

    Story
    "Scott Harvath shoots, kills, shoots kills"
    What did you like best about Black List? What did you like least?

    What I liked best=I liked when it ended. What I liked least=When I bought a new book. It's time to have Harvath whacked and get a new superhero for this author. Being prior SOG, nobody goes into harms way time and time again and comes out unscathed. My suggestion is Scott Harvath's time in this author's plot setting is over. Time to "whack him" and start a new series. It's become simply more and more of the same. Harvath gets screwed, kills everyone, Nicolas' dogs eat a couple of people and uses his creative intelligence in cyberworld. Last, one SOG Operator dies-THE END.


    What was most disappointing about Brad Thor’s story?

    Same old stuff


    Which scene was your favorite?

    None


    Did Black List inspire you to do anything?

    Buy a new book


    Any additional comments?

    Buy a different book. The author has enough money.

    Story
    "So much for the Constitution....."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Appears that Mr Thor has brought Scot Harvath from being a fighter against terrorism to being a mass murderer, disregarding the rights of Americans under the guise that he and a select few know what is best for the American public.... Talk about a treat to freedoms, seems Harvath and company have become the terrorist....


    What was most disappointing about Brad Thor’s story?

    The idea that Americans cant handle truth during crisis....


    What three words best describe Armand Schultz’s performance?

    OK


    Did Black List inspire you to do anything?

    It ending ticked me off at the supposed good guys....
