"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)
I'm not a great fan of thrillers and this one didn't change my mind: Flat and stereotype characters and a very predictable story.
The original might be better, but I wouldn't recommend the abridged format.
plot, character development
honestly, I am listening to all Flynn's novels, so the plots run together...
mispronounced some words, romance scenes sounded weird
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.
suspense and reality of the story
other Mitch Rapp stories, gritty and believable
characters are a little weak
yes really pleased
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.
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.
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.
good book and it will hold your interest.
