Best: Special forces team comradery. James Bond-like plot, and stylized "sets"/settings (think 007, Albert Broccoli movies, not Ian Fleming novels). A lot of action.
Worst: Somewhat cheezy. Military/fighting/weapon inaccuracies weren't a deal-braker, yet author should have done a bit more research given the amount of battle.
Confession: it didn't compare at all to the writing, and plot sophistication of the book that I mistook this as being. Thus, further dashed expectations, in addition to my thinking this was narrated by actor Bill Murray (SNL, Lost In Translation, The Monuments Men).
Best aspect: Moving from one remarkable setting to the next, [read the following in the tone of an action movie trailer narrator] special forces characters heroically fight for the good OF THE WORLD!
THE ACTUAL NARRATOR WAS GOOD. However, I joined Audible for this book, expecting Oscar nominated Bill Murray, actor as the narrator! Whose book, by the way, came up when the "Narrator: Bill Murray" link was clicked on the audiobook's Amazon page. However, I can't say Bill Murray (actor), would have been at all appropriate given what turned out to be a shoot-'em-up.
Totally. It could be good as a high budget summer action flick with Brad Pitt/Matt Damon (if producers found a scriptwriter who's better than this author). In truth, it was written on a B movie level that might have unknown actors, or at best, a Steven Seagal type.
As one reviewer wrote, Clive Cussler meets Dan Brown.
