    5 stars - books that I will listen to again and again. 4 stars - books that I might listen to again someday. 3 stars - books that I probably won't listen to again. 2 stars - books that I know I will never listen to again. 1 star - books that I should have never listened to in the first place.

    "A Fast Paced, Political/Anti-Terrorism Thriller!"

    After reading everything written by Tom Clancy, Daniel Silva, Brad Thor, David Baldacci, Robert Ludlum, Frederick Forsyth and Jeffery Archer - I found this audible book and decided to give Vince Flynn a try. Wow! I was hooked immediately. Okay, I am biased. Seeing that I have served in the military, I probably have a different point of view than the average civilian. So, if you are a left wing, progressive, hand wringing individual who truly wants to do so very much to save the world while doing absolutely nothing or the kind of person who must follow the "rules" at all cost - you will NOT enjoy this book. However, if you are like me and believe that terrorism is a REAL threat, that torture is a viable OPTION in order to save lives and that killing the bad guys is an acceptable SOLUTION - read Vince Flynn's books and dream on.

    "Executive Power" by Vince Flynn is the fourth book in his series about the USA's top counter-terrorism agent, Mitch Rapp. The story starts out pretty basic, an American family vacationing in the Philippines is kidnapped by the terrorist group Abu Sayyaf. Of course, the US government is furious and Filipino government says they are doing their best to find the American family but in reality the highest member of the Filipino military, is being paid off by Abu Sayyaf. Thus, the story speeds up quickly and it is very hard to stop listening to. There are so many PLAUSIBLE twists and turns that this book will keep you on the edge of your seat. By the way, this is the book where Mitch Rapp is shot in the butt!

    What I love most of Vince Flynn's books is how he always seems to work in meddling, mealy mouthed, government officials who (sometimes accidentally, many times purposely) screw up the mission plan. The other aspect of Vince Flynn's books that always draws me in is that the hero Mitch Rapp often works in conjunction with the Navy SEALs and that he doesn't always play by the rules. Mitch Rapp always gets the job done and it's a pretty dirty job.

    Pure, entertaining, action packed, fast paced fiction. I highly recommend this book when you want to read to escape. To escape into a world where the terrorists are the bad guys and the good guys do whatever it takes to kill them.

    Oh! I almost forgot. George Guidall IS the voice of Mitch Rapp. He truly brings Mitch Rapp to life. I do hope that Audible never changes the narrator on these books, they just wouldn't be the same to listen to.

    A five star listen because I know I will listen to this book again. Highly Recommended.

    "Wonderful - could not stop listening"

    I am a fan of George Guidall who did his usual masterful job. I am new to Vince Flynn and am about to download another. Almost from the beginning I was glued to listening. Intriguing and believable story. Although a few things seemed MAYBE a little far fetched, the plot and narration made everything completely real for me. Very highly recommended!

    "Good but not as Good as the other Flynn Novels"

    I of couse enjoyed this book but I was surprised with how long it took me to finish it. Guidall certainly narrated it very well, but I was not glued to this as with the other books in the series that I've listened to. Perhaps i have the bar set too high for Flynn since his other books were GREAT. This was Good (not great), the story line was just not as captivating.

    "Mitch is one of those "Manly Man" guys...again!"

    And I wouldn't have it any other way! Mitch is moving, quite uncomfortably at first, into his married life...and new position. The author does an excellent job...as usual...in creating a fantastic read! It's a mix of adventure, daring, love, intrigue, and great writing!

    "Typical Vince Flynn..Exciting!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes...seems to be well researched, so the story seems plausible despite Mitch Rapps super hero talents. Timely


    What other book might you compare Executive Power to and why?

    I like the series as a whole and while I think any one book would stand alone, they are a thrill in sequence....bumping American Assassin to the head of the line.


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    The man is a master at his trade....personality and character are reflected in his performance. He doesn't read, he acts.


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

    Just couldn't stop listening.
