    "No remotely as good as later works"

    Flynn's earlier books are not nearly as good as his later ones and this is a perfect example. The plot was a little weak and basically split between two unrelated story lines. The narration was just as good as the later books. George Guidall does an outstanding job.

    "Good rebound from the last book"

    I like the Mitch Rapp series, and this book was better than #3. The audible version of Separation of Power had the worst narrator I've heard on audible. But, the narrator for Executive Power was fantastic.
    The story was good. I would start giving the Rapp books 5 stars again if he would kill off that feces filled human suit they call Anna. What a terrible character. I'll keep reading and hoping she dies.

    Story
    "Flynn hits his stride."

    Executive Power (Book #6) encompasses most, if not all, of what I expect from a Mitch Rapp thriller by Vince Flynn. Let me tell you, there is a lot going on in this story! There are a couple distinctly different story arcs contained within, and after reading some reviews, I'm noticing that this brings out some negative opinions. True, each of the differing stories don't play very well off each other and are very loosely connected, but this was not so detrimental to my enjoyment of the audio book. In fact, I was so engrossed, that I finished Executive Power in 4 short days. This is compared to about 8-12 days for a book this length. Why so fast? For one reason, it's my humble opinion that this is the book where Vince Flynn found his stride and continued to improve by leaps and bounds compared to previous efforts. Another reason? George Guidall...can't say enough about him.

    So what is it, exactly, that I expect from a Mitch Rapp thriller? Well there's always an interesting (and completely despicable) bad guy or two, be they an Islamic extremist, assassin or corrupt government official. The political intrigue associated with the various acronym'd government agencies and Washington D.C. as a whole is always present, if not prominent. I also expect, and particularly enjoy, the covert military ops that occur throughout the series, replete with thorough descriptions of equipment and tactics. Rapp is not a Dirty Harry-esque .44 Magnum-wielding type. He prefers a Beretta or Glock 9mm, and he is absolutely deadly with it. Finally, there are plenty of supporting characters in any given Mitch Rapp novel that are equally important and engaging. One of my favorites is resident CIA computer hacker, Marcus Dumond.

    Story
    "Weakest of the 7 Rapp books I have listened to"
    Where does Executive Power rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Above average


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have knitted the two stories together better. This is really two novellas.


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

    George is the best narrator out here.


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

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Weakest of the 7 Rapp books I have listened to.

    "Abridged Audio Book"

    My mistake by not paying attention to whether book was a abridged or not. We will not make that mistake ever again. I like the details in Flynn's books.

    "always good for a quick fun listen."

    Mitch Rapp does it again. Guidall is a fantastic narrator that keeps you engaged through his many voices.
