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

    "very compelling story"

    I enjoyed this story. It is a plausible scenario and very well read by the narrator.

    Story
    "Early flynn"
    Any additional comments?

    This was an energetic novel, action packed, pre Mitch Rapp but very much in line. The story surrounds the concept of really draining the swamp in Washington DC, as in assassinations. The story stands up well with time (even when they talk about the out of control debt of $5 trillion dollars.. I had to chuckle) and holds interest through out. The reason I was a bit disappointed with the story was due to its naiveté or at least unrealistic conclusion that perfectly responsible, well balanced, successful people would find assassination a reasonable solution to corruption in government, rather than creating a less savage solution. Love the later books of Flynn and was saddened when I had heard he had passed away.

    "interesting to the end"

    this book was interesting from the very beginning to the very end not at all predictable and certainly a good representation of the frustrations that many service members must feel

    "timely, clever well performed"

    incredible story telling of a well crafted espionage tale. narration is gold standard due to we'll differentiated voices...never got lost as to who was speaking. Story hits close to home.

    "One of my favorite Vince Flynn novels"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this story and this is now one of my favorite Vince Flynn novels. The plot twists and turns were not what I thought was coming at times which is rare for me. I thought most of the characters were believable and the plot line was ingenious. What would happen if our own elite warriors decided our elected leaders were more corrupt and more of a threat to the United States Constitution than the foreign powers they have been training to fight? Great premise.

    Story
    "HUGE WASTE OF A CREDIT OR CASH"

    I never, ever, EVER fail to finish a book I start.
    Until now.
    This was so tedious, and so uninteresting, and so contrived (the story, the dialogue, the overall writing) that I simply couldn't make myself do it.
    The characters are not real.
    The plot is not believable even if you willingly suspend your disbelief.
    I just don't care how it ends.
    In fact, I'm looking into whether I can send it back and get a refund...which is something else I almost never do.

    Story
    "Good Plot"
    Where does Term Limits rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would give it a 3


    What did you like best about this story?

    How I could relate it to the current political events


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I was not impressed with the narrator but I thought it was funny when he tried to switch to a female role. Somehow it just didn't work.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I wouldn't make a movie out of this one

    "Intrigue mirrors current affairs"

    Highly recommend this fast paced political drama. Appealing characters and insight into a fictional government underworld. Excellent reader creates memorable characters. Murder, greed, brotherly camaraderie loved those Seals.

    I have narrow genre interests and mostly gravitate to thrillers. Mostly espionage & crime thrillers. Flynn, Clancy, Connelly, Thor, Baldacci

    Story
    "The book that started it all"

    When I read Term Limits for the first time, I was immediately hooked. It so fed into my need for a little selfish schadenfreude. The story was - and is - so timely in our political landscape and provides many of us disgusted with selfish, amoral and corrupt politicians and cronies a little dark and harmless outlet for our frustration.

    It is hard to believe that Flynn had to self-publish this book originally. Perhaps the content was a little too harsh for those with a less than hearty constitution.

    I was glued to the book and then when the Audible version came out on sale, I had to grab it. The audio book version didn't disappoint.

    Perhaps the best thing to come from this book is the creation of the Mitch Rapp universe, although he doesn't appear in this work.
