More spy thriller than military - I gave up.

I don't give up on many books but I got thru the first book and part way thru the second and said to myself "this is 95% spy story and 5% military". Not my cup of tea and not all all as described.

If you want spy action, you may like this, if you want military action look elsewhere.

Ok thriller, with incorrect technical details

Would you try another book from Andrew Watts and/or Michael Pauley?

No

Would you be willing to try another book from Andrew Watts? Why or why not?

Maybe. I liked the general story. However, I like the author to have accurate descriptions of firearms and technical items. These authors don't adhere to these standards. For instance, in the very beginning, a Beretta 92 fired by itself when dropped (false). Shoulder holsters aren't that popular. Sig Sauer pistols don't have a safety, etc...These lapses made me question other aspects of the book when they were dealing with Aircraft carriers and helicopters.

Do you think The War Planners Series, Books 1-3 needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No

Any additional comments?

Would have been much better had the authors used real descriptions of small arms and situations.

Only Believable Stories Get 5 *'s From Me...

The premise of the story is absolutely believable, with the caveat that a couple of the incidents could have been better developed. Having said that, I absolutely loved the trilogy and was impressed with the almost seamless segue from book to book. Other than my first comment above on 'incident development', my only "less than five stars" rating was for the narrator. In the end I have to give him a well earned "four star" rank (surprising myself after my first impression of this narrator). Expect to be frustrated at first listen with the narrator's continuous "rapid-drop inflections" at the end of virtually every sentence (sounding much like the less experienced small market news reporters who have not yet learned how to effectively utilize this powerful technique). I ALMOST, FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, RETURNED AN AUDIBLE BOOK (the narrator was, at first, was that disruptive to the listening experience). However...I AM GLAD I DID NOT DO IT!!! Because other than this issue, the narrator is MORE than competent and (I think) gifted and consistent in his "character voice" changes. BOTTOM LINE: Now that you know this single flaw, try to work through and ignore it initially and you will be rewarded with an excellent story that is engrossing, entertaining and which, literally, made my heart pump with excitement over and over!!! Book Was Worth Price Paid.

I couldn't get past the first 10 mins

Horrible performance. The breathy reader was just impossible to listen to, and the story wasn't compelling enough for me to look past the performance.

Excellent storyline and plot.

Superb character development. Tinely storyline. I purchased the Audible edition . The narrator, Mr . Pauley, did an outstanding job. He really makes you believe the various characters are speaking. All three books are a must read.

Great story / Great Value

Best value for the first 3 stories in rhis developing series. The pace really cracks along in a Techie Thriller for the present day. Set up Part 4- perfectly. Really enjoying this Series and this 3 in 1 audiobook is a no brainer. Liked the narrator's voice which is crucial.
