    Any additional comments?

    Even if I didn't make the mistake of reading this book after just finishing Ben Coes' awesome new Dewey Andreas book "Eye for an Eye", I still would have been very disappointed with this one. Poor story.
    This will be only the second time out of almost 200 books that I will be asking for my credit back.

    "Big let down"
    What disappointed you about Hidden Order?

    I am a big fan of Brad Thor books but this book is a huge dissapointment. Scott Harvath plays police detective? really?


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

    Scott Harvath should not play detective but instead do what he does best.

    "Not what I expected from the author"
    What could Brad Thor have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Just not up to his normal standard. Too much history and a general lack of action.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Armand Schultz?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    Normally I really enjoy his books, but not this one.

    "Waiting for this book to start...."

    I waited for this book to start and it never did. Scott Harvath has a great resume and occasional tough language but as a character in this book (and much of the series) he is a non factor. In this book, the much better story line was taking place elsewhere. Brad Thor seems to like strong women and builds all of these stories around those women and how they save the day. Let's either make Harvath the hardcore hero or leave him out of the books altogether. So, if you come to this book looking for a Mitch Rapp or a Jack Reacher then move along. There is nothing to see here. On a positive note, Brad Thor does a good job of weaving history into his books. Such a good job in fact that it is much more compelling the his own work of fiction.

    What disappointed you about Hidden Order?

    I'm a huge Brad Thor fan and have enjoyed all his books but was left some what disappointed with this one. I felt the pace of this one was very slow and found myself speeding through parts. It was forever before there was some action.

    "just didn't like this one."
    What would have made Hidden Order better?

    this was more a hardy boys mystery combined with a history class. I appreciated the lesson on the federal reserve and american history. however, there virtually no suspense and no action. I expect more from a harvath novel. ive read them all...this is the only one i would not recommend. I think I miss mitch rapp already.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    maybe go back and re-read some of the rapp books.


    Did Armand Schultz do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    armand does good overall and does some of the characters very well. however, only george guidall (sp?) can capture the essence of harvath. same goes for mitch rapp.


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

    pure dissatisfaction.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope mr. thor takes scot harvath back to his roots in his next book. and hopefully, George guidall will tell us the story.

    "Sadly disappointed on this one"
    Any additional comments?

    The writing (performance) is written well enough given the plot and its twists, however, the basic plot just did not do it for me. It is not what we are accustomed to in a Horvath thriller. Even if you believe the plot, perhaps it would have been easier to finish if we had a new hero to read about instead of Horvath. I just wanted this one to end and I am happy to moving on to the new Ben Coes book. This one is worth skipping. Heck, another Athena team would have been better.

    "disappointing"

    I happen to be a great fan of Brad Thor's novels. I love Harvath and his adventures. This was more of a police procedural and history lesson (which is great, as long as that is what you like). The story was very interesting and the information, which I am certain is true, is frightening, however I like Scott in action and kicking a**. He seemed too domesticated in this novel, a back seat character.

    "The Fed...as in Fed Up?"

    I was really expecting so much more from this book. Since many people do not know what the Federal Reserve Bank is it would have been nice to have had a few facts about it spread through the book. I was disappointed in the plot to say the least. Suddenly it took off in one direction with great determination and then slammed on the brakes and ambled down a rabbit trail for... well.. awhile. And then there is the dialog. Where's the butter because it gets quite corney at times. The narration took some getting used to as I felt the words coming at me rapid fire and sharp . What happened to using Mr Guidall? The rousing Presidental speech is just wishful thinking in this day and time I am sorry to say. Think of a real person and then try to hear those words coming out of their mouth....ummm...I can't honestly think of anyone.

    "What have you done with Brad Thor?"
    What would have made Hidden Order better?

    This book was very pedantic. Brad Thor spent large sections of the first half of the book providing a selective history of the Federal Reserve. So first, reduce the teaching and move the plot along.
    Second, the book was a veiled political treatise on Thor's libertarian leaning politics. The "dialogue" we long monologues talking down to the reader, "educating" us in Thor's belief system. Get rid of the political persuasion and give us some interesting dialogue.
    It seems like Thor rushed this out as a political treatise in the guise of an action novel.
    There wasn't much thought to the plot and character development and the dialogue was flat.
    We didn't care about any of the characters.


    What was most disappointing about Brad Thor’s story?

    It was like reading a political tract.


    What aspect of Armand Schultz’s performance would you have changed?

    It was fine.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Hidden Order?

    All of the political diatribe, much of the Fed history.


    Any additional comments?

    This was very disappointing; generally, I enjoy Thor's books.

    "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!
