Publisher's Summary

In one bloody night, three of Washington’s most powerful politicians are executed with surgical precision. Their assassins then deliver a shocking ultimatum to the American government: set aside partisan politics and restore power to the people. No one, they warn, is out of their reach—not even the president. A joint FBI-CIA task force reveals the killers are elite military commandos, but no one knows exactly who they are or when they will strike next. Only Michael O’Rourke, a former U.S. Marine and freshman congressman, holds a clue to the violence: a haunting incident in his own past with explosive implications for his country’s future.

©2009 Vince Flynn (P)2011 Simon & Schuster

    "Unexpectedly outstanding"

    I tried this audio book on a whim, wanting to try something new by an author I'd never read. I literally could not turn it off! The suspense and excitement were riveting. I can't wait to hear more from this author! Loved the narrator too.

    "Wordy"

    Excessively long. Story & characters seemed forced. Storyline became predicable. Action sequenced well done as normal for author.

    Story
    "Couldn't finish it, found it really boring"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No. It may be a book that many people like, but I just could not get into it. Perhaps the fact it is now an election year and that is all we hear on the news, made it worse. The amount of detail about how the government is run, and how the president is molded and rehearses everything is EXTREMELY annoying. There isn't enough scenes that are interesting. Spend less time on all the dang details, and get to the action. People are being shot. Concentrate on that, not the dang politics.


    What was most disappointing about Vince Flynn’s story?

    Annoying and boring.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator was fine, just a boring story.


    Could you see Term Limits being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    Try it if you are into politics. If not, only try it if the book is on sale.

    Story
    "Very impressive early book"

    I read too many of these types of books but I don’t normally write a review for them, especially if they already have nearly 3000 reviews, unless I feel that the book is either very good or very bad. Vince Flynn’s book, Term Limits, definitely fits into the first of those categories.

    When I bought the book I expected a relatively simple plot with relatively simple characters but was pleasantly surprised to find that the plot twists and turns throughout the book, events are usually not what I expected and the characters usually react in unique and unexpected ways. The characters themselves are well developed and, for the most part, do not feel like cartoon caricatures of real people. The plot hangs together and I found myself bound up in the story and found it hard to put the book down. Even the ending was a bit unexpected in the sense that the author did not take the easy way out, but everything still gets tied up properly. All in all it was a much better book than I would have expected from such an early book from an author and the only concern I have is that I don’t see how further books from Mr Flynn can live up to the quality of this book. The only criticism that I have is that the book, being almost 7 years old at this point, misses the current state of the federal deficit as it lists it as five trillion dollars instead of the current value of almost 20 trillion dollars.

    The narration is very good and fits the tempo of the book and the feel of the characters. All in all a first class book. I will look for more by Vince Flynn.

    Story
    "Awesome book!"
    What made the experience of listening to Term Limits the most enjoyable?

    The narrator was stellar. I really enjoyed the voices.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This story had me emotionally involved. I would feel myself getting angry, happy, anxious and more while listening to this book.


    Which character – as performed by Nick Sullivan – was your favorite?

    The president's chief of staff. He portrayed him so well. I had a great mental picture of a little weasel of a man.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes. I like when O'Rourke handles business in the situation room.


    Any additional comments?

    Stellar listen. For me, I would have to say this is my favorite book for now. Maybe it't due to the heightened amount of politics right now, I don't know.
