    "Everyone sounds like cry-babies"

    Love Vince Flynn and as other note, the story is good but the narration is awful. Every character sounds like a bunch of crying, spoiled children.

    Story
    "Too much recap!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It would have been a better story if there were less recap of the previous book. the 1st half of the book seem to drag on.


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

    I would have left out most of the 1st half.


    Have you listened to any of Ken Kilban’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not sure.


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

    No


    Any additional comments?

    No

    "Another great Mitch Rapp"
    Where does Separation of Power rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Ranks among the highest of all audiobooks we've listened to. Looking forward to the next Mitch Rapp.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot held our attention in the normal Mitch Rapp pattern.


    What about Ken Kilban’s performance did you like?

    Ken reads with enthusiasm and emotion. You feel the action.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Mitch Rapp doing what Mitch Rapp does best.

    "Don't be afraid to get this one"

    I'm tackling the Mitch Rapp series in chronological order so, yes, I've heard narrator George Guidal, and, yes, he's very good. That said, I wasn't going to skip this one so I bought it. The narration isn't nearly as bad as some of the whiny reviews make it out to be. Vince Flynn's story has such suspense, character and action that it carries itself. Ken Kilban sounds a bit like a news broadcaster, but I was in no way ever tempted to stop listening. Don't be afraid to get this one. Unless you are an audiophile highbrow, you'll enjoy the story just fine.

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

    I've generally enjoyed the Mitch Rapp books. They're not brilliant literature -- they're mindless "political suspense." They're usually entertaining enough to help pass the time in a cardio workout or a long commute. This one, however, was really BAD. I never finished part 1.

    A lot of time was devoted to summarizing the plot of the previous book (which was good), excruciating details of people in one meeting after another, lots of explaining mid east political issues.... at the six hour mark, it was still all "set up" and no action.

    Also, Mitch's girlfriend (who of course doesn't want him to be in the occupation he's in) is completely ridiculous.

    I realize one doesn't listen to these kinds of audiobooks because they're plausible. But come on... all she does is gripe about how he shouldn't be in the CIA (even though being in his job is what saved her life in a previous book) and he's crazy-madly-insanely in love with her even though she constantly complains to him about his occupation. She's ridiculously one-dimensional and it's tiresome listening to her incessant griping about Mitch being in the CIA. I might continue on to part 2 of this book if I thought she'd get blown up or otherwise eliminated from the plot.

    "Where is George G?"

    The Rapp series is completely transformed by the Narrator who makes Mitch sound like a high-school student. I don't know how the story ended because I could not listen to the narrators whiny voice longer than the first hour. Bring back George Guidal! The book probably deserves more stars, others by Flynn certainly did, but I will never know.

    "Disappointed"

    I enjoyed Transfer of Power and Third Option by Vince Flynn and narrated by Nick Sullivan. I was looking forward to the next book in the series. Boy was I disappointed. George Guidall's whinny narration sucked all of the anticipated pleasure out of this listen. In Transfer and Third Option Mitch Rapp is a confident steady force that the listener can readily accept as capable of carrying out the dangerous and deadly escapades he is immeshed in. With Guidall's whinny narration, Rapp becomes a petulant angry person. I don't look forward to the remaining Rapp series with Guidall's narration. I may have to buy the paperback and read them the old fashioned way.
