    "one of my favorite books"

    Great story. It possessed many unexpected twists.
    Furthermore, the ending was very refreshing.
    Armand Schultz is one of my very favorite narrators. He brings the story to life for me.

    "Another hit by Brad Thor!"

    Brad Thor has made a habit of writing books that keep you not only interested, but "in the thick" of things. Scot Harvath is a hero & an everyday man trying to have a life that matters.

    My only criticism is that it has been too long since he wrote another one! This is an excellent series!

    "too preachy"
    Have you listened to any of Armand Schultz’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Armand is always fantastic.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no.


    Any additional comments?

    I like Brad Thor and the Scot Harvath series. This one has all the elements of a good Harvath novel but Thor has gotten much too preachy by inserting his political views and making political statements where he can. Just tell me a story -- don't try to convert me.

    "I didn't expect to call a book too simple till now"
    What disappointed you about Hidden Order?

    The dialogs are not only cheesy and impossible to imagine in real life conversation but they are plain simple. The language is unsophisticated and redundant, and forces the characters into dialog just to prove a point.


    Any additional comments?

    I just couldn't get interested in the story.

    Story
    "Entertaining"
    Would you listen to Hidden Order again? Why?

    This is a good book to listen to while working in the yard.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story was a little corny but entertaining. The power of the Fed but in a James Bond sort of theme.


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

    Mr. Schultz is an outstanding reader. He brought every character to life. I was particular impressed with the contrast he was able to deliver. From "sexy woman" to "tough guy" to "nerd" all his voices were clearly distinguishable.


    Any additional comments?

    For listeners who are entertained by conspiracy stories based on powerful organizations, this is a book for you. Entertaining and well read and occasionally thought provoking.

    "A bad read kills a good story"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The story might actually be good, but the irritating nasal twang and repetitive speech patterns of the narrator only left me thinking how much better it would be in the hands of someone like George Guidall.


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

    George Guidall !!!


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    All of them, because of the narration.

    "Hidden Order"
    Any additional comments?

    Audiobook. There is a great deal of historical information, and big picture finance data regarding the Federal Reserve, all which is educational. But, I'm disappointed; Hidden Order is a boring story. Having read several Brad Thor thrillers, I was anticipating action and there was little. A savvy Boston female cop teams with Scot Harvath, coyly dancing through innuendo as they scour the history of Boston, and murders continue to pile. Way too much explaining of history and motivation for my taste.

    I heard a rumor, not long ago, that Brad Thor would ghost write some of the late Vince Flynn’s Mitch Rapp series. Hope not. I knew Vince Flynn, he was a friend of mine (Kidding, not really). But, Scot Harvath is no Mitch Rapp. Scot may kick the first base pad when he’s pissed, but Mitch will pull it out of the ground and make you eat it.
    Hidden Order is not up to the quality of book that Brad Thor is capable of producing, in my humble opinion. The narration is fine.

    "complex storyline, hard to follow"
    What did you like best about Hidden Order? What did you like least?

    The concept of the secret agencies within the CIA was intriguing. Overall, the storyline was way too complex to easily follow in audio format.

    "Average... and Never Takes Off......"

    The story had potential, but just slowly moves along. Narration was ok, but not the best I have heard this narrator perform in other books. On discount, or you have a credit to spare go for it.

    Story
    "to Cliche"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The story was predictable and thd the reader was just awful. The story lacked creativity and originality. I've watched 80's bromances with less Cliches. Won't be reading any Brad Thorn.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Brad Thor again?

    No.


    What didn’t you like about Armand Schultz’s performance?

    Sounded corny.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointing.

    Story
    "average......"
    Would you try another book written by Brad Thor or narrated by Armand Schultz?

    I think as it is one of my first Brad Thor book I will try one again, as there are a few. But reluctantly I will sacrifice a credit for it.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    As expected, unfortunatly I guessed the ending half way through the book nearly as it happened.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    It was average either way, there definitely are better narrators that possibly could have done a better job! Once again I'll give the benefit if the doubt and will try again this narrator to see if its the book or the narrator.


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I think its an average book, that is narrated okayish, not a complete waste of time but there is better books to listened too! Sorry!
