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

    "Not believable and could not catch my attention"

    I know you have suspend your belief when you read fiction and some of the best books I read are not believable if I think too hard, but the premise of this book was so unrealistic, that I could not relate to characters. One of the few books I have discontinued after trying for a few hours.

    Story
    "Government Conspiracy Avenged by their own elite"
    What did you love best about Term Limits?

    How family and friends worked together. Goods guys win.


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

    Yes. Wondering if the government would get away with blackmail and deceit and murder.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Powerful people in government. Military mistreatment. Honest government fighting back. FBI agent believing that the government representative got what was coming to him. Just how all events come together to make it almost believe able.


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

    Yes

    "Term limits is g great book. I really enjoyed it."

    The differences in the accent of the reader was somewhat confusing. Very good story line, but so many characters made it difficult to follow. An excellent listening choice. Only problem was I kept falling asleep durning the brook and the next day I had to figure out my starting place. That for me was a problem was finding the spot I fell asleep.

    "One of the best V. Flynn books"

    Pre Mitch Rapp, but many other RappVerse characters make their premier. Still a great listen even w/o the awesome spy/assassin Rapp.

    Story
    "Tin Foil Hat is a must..."
    What would have made Term Limits better?

    A juvenile take on the political thriller at best, Term Limits would certainly have benefited from completely formed characters rather than the paper cut-outs that Flynn utilizes.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Vince Flynn again?

    Absolutely not.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator did a credible job with an un-credible story.


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

    My reaction was mostly one of disgust. I would imagine seeing the KKK glorified as heroes in "Birth Of A Nation" would be a similar experience to reading this drivel.


    Any additional comments?

    I have never read "The Turner Diaries", and now I don't have to.

    Story
    "Morally bankrupt thriller"

    Of the 50 Audible books I have experienced, this is one of the more compelling. The story is complex and driving. I found that I could not stop listening. As a side point of interest, I was fascinated by how much technology has changed in the 19 years since the book was published. The story exists in a world without extensive smart phones use and limited surveillance techniques. It is an interesting pre- 9-11 take on the nation.
    I didn't give the story five star because of the overall tone. As a three decade resident of the DC area it annoyed me that the domestic murderers were portrayed as heroes through out the book. Yeah., we all have fantasies about killing off incompetent obstructionist members of Congress. The black op killings in this book are NOT acts of patriotism. They are acts of domestic terrorism. "Old Grandpa" is not a hero. He is a old, rich entitled white guy who is a murdering terrorist
