"Fast-paced and action-packed. Sure to please his many fans and gain new ones. Immensely satisfying and highly recommended." (Library Journal)
I like this book a lot. It kept my interest through the whole book. If you have liked the other Scott H. books you will like this one
Say something about yourself!
Brad Thor has taken his creative writing craft to a new level. He certainly stands out with the likes of Vince Flynn and David Baldacci for creating an edge of the chair novel that is guaranteed to grab you and never let you go. George Guidall provides a terrific narration. I have enjoyed all of Brad Thor's novels to date, but First Commandment is definitely a stand out.
With failing eye sight, the audio is the answer and this book is an easy, pleasurable entertainment. Enjoyed the narration, the pace and better continuity than some of his work. Plot is entertaining while unrealistic . . . but then this is fiction. No regret about downloading this one!
Big fan of Brad Thor. This book no different than the others. Fast moving, good story, great naration.
Yes. Another great job.
Just love listing to audiobooks. Some of my favorite authors are Vince Flynn and Brad Thor
Yes I would
Great story line and easy to follow
They are all great
This book is non-stop action with a good plot. Vince Flynn readers will enjoy it. A rogue agent trying to take out the bad guys anyway he can. How can you beat that?
Seemed like everybody was out to stop Scot, and the way he was able to continue to move about to complete his personal mission without support from the person who owed his life to
When the off duty cop acted on a hunch and stopped the bombing of the bar
Knowing that our government acts pretty much the way the book laid it out if they want you out of the way
Needs to focus on the garbage happening within the current administration as there's plenty of storylines he can continue the series with
Its just a good fun time. It isn't serious literature, but a good spy novel.
Seriously, George Guidall could read the phone book and I would listen to it. The guys voice is gold!
I loved the Vince Flynn character Mitch Rapp and waited for each new book. Now that this won't happen again I was amazed with this story because it had a similar flavor. Not a copy cat but a new direction it seemed for Thor. WOW! I got totally wound up in this one and hope it will come again. Scot Harvath had a new dimension for me and I'm just waiting for the next. Of course George Guidall enhanced the story so great combo.
I did not read the print version but the audible version was an excellent listen.
Horvath is an excellent character and easy to root for.
He brings a "patience" to his reading. He very patiently lays out each character and brings them to life.
I was thoroughly pleased with the book.
