What the Critics Say

"His description of the White House is impressive; readers will wonder if the secret passageways, hidden rooms, and clever deception devices that help load this story with seemingly endless intrigue really exist." (Publishers Weekly)

    "TERRIBLE ABRIDGEMENT!"

    I am a big fan of The Mitch Rapp stories by Vince Flynn. However, this one is appalling disappointment. The chopping of the story makes very little sense. the narrator refers to things that were never included in the first part of this abridgment. Don't waste your credit!

    Story
    "not the best narrator/great novel"
    What did you love best about Transfer of Power?

    plot, character development


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Transfer of Power?

    honestly, I am listening to all Flynn's novels, so the plots run together...


    What three words best describe Daniel Oreskes’s performance?

    mispronounced some words, romance scenes sounded weird


    Any additional comments?

    I'm not sure if it was the rendition or Flynn's writing, but I didn't think the romance/sex parts were believable or well done...the political intrigue, espionage, and military action is captivating and entertaining.

    "Abridged??"

    I wish Audible had the un-abridged form of the book. The abridged book is a little too choppy and seems to be missing sections of the full size book.

    "Unbelievable"

    Okay, these stories are fiction but really! A man fires from the top of the Hotel Washington to the roof of the White House and no one confronts him? The plot is just not well thought through or well executed.

    "Great Author / Bad Narration"

    Vince Flynn and Mitch Rapp are my favorites but the narrator on this one ruined the listen. If you are out there Vince, PLEASE stick to George Guidall.
