Description

Newly appointed CIA director Dr. Irene Kennedy is the target of an inside plot to destroy her and prematurely end the American President's term. To make matters worse, Saddam Hussein is close to entering the nuclear arms race - something Israel has vowed to stop. With the haunting specter of World War III looming, the president calls on his secret weapon: top counter-terrorism operative Mitch Rapp. But with only two weeks to take out the nukes, Rapp is up against a ticking clock - and impossible odds.

Take another thrill ride with Mitch Rapp.

Narrator turns Rapp into a snooty, cranky man

This is the eleventh Vince Flynn book I've listened to, I saved it for last because of the poor reviews regarding the narrator. I couldn't finish it. He made all of the characters sound whiny, anxious and condescending including Mitch Rapp.
A snooty, anxious Rapp?!
Three years into my audible subscription this is only the second book I couldn't finish due to narration.
I'll get this installment on Rapp the old fashioned way I think, actual paper.

wasted money

I can't believe I am rating a Vince Flynn novel as one star but here it is. How sad. I have purchased this novel in paper but I hate to read, then I purchased it in an abridged format, YUK, and despite the reviews I was excited to get the entire thing read to me. NOT. This narrator is really bad. I can handle the narrative parts but when he does voices Mitch sounds like a whining 16 year old kid, Kennedy and all women sound the same, like old ladies. It is so bad it overpowers the excellence of this book. If this is your first audible purchase do not judge audible by this terrible production, it is rare to be this bad. To audible, either issue refunds or get this redone and offer to replace this fiasco. To Simon and Shuster audio, shame on you. This is really inexcusable.

Horrible Narration

I fell in love with the Mitch Rapp series and was thrill when these older books came out. After listening to the first chapter without George Guildall narrarating I've decided not to purchase any others. The story would be great but the story teller is horrible. THIS IS NOT MITCH RAPP!! Please redo with George Guidall!! Please!

File under "how to ruin a good book . . ."

I am still in the first half of the book as I write this review. The narrator is just awful. He makes every character sound like a shrill, whiny, complainer. The action is just starting to really come together, but I can hardly stand to listen. Ken Kilban makes Mitch Rapp sound like he jumped off a rainbow float in a New Orleans parade to assassinate a terrorist before berating the hotel staff because it gave him the wrong candle to match the room's feng shui and messed up his bubble bath. Rule: never, ever, listen to a book read by this guy.

Story might be good, narration is bad

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The narration made it a chore to listen to. I had to relisten to parts since his inflection was so off I never could figure out why everyone was so angry all the time.

If you’ve listened to books by Vince Flynn before, how does this one compare?

This book might be as good as the rest but I don't know. I will consider buying the papeback and reading it myself.

How could the performance have been better?

Don't get me started!
He made everyone sound angry. Made Irene sound old. I couldn't tell one character from another. I kept getting lost and having to relisten to parts. Just a bad job.
A different narrator was needed.

Any additional comments?

I'm sorry to say but this was a waste of my money. I have not enjoyed this book at all. I read the other reviews that said the narration was bad, but I was going to give it a try anyway since I really enjoyed the Mitch Rapp stories. Mistake!
The narrator makes everyone sound angry all of the time. It seems to me the narrator didn't really know the charcters.

Cannot finish it...

The narrator is the worst I have ever heard. I can't even bring myself to finish the book. He turns Mitch Rapp into a high pitched, whiny hero. George Guidall , the narrator for all of the other Mitch Rapp books, really captured the essence of all of the characters in a given book, male and female alike.

Dissapointing

Mitch Rapp should visit Ken Kilban

What disappointed you about Separation of Power?

The narrator was absolutely horrible. He ruined the entire experience of this book. George Guidall needs to redo this story.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Was the biggest piece of crap ever. Made Rapp sound like a whiny pansy.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Separation of Power?

The narrator's voice.

Any additional comments?

Don't EVER let this jerk ever read another book.

komischer Band der Serie

die anderen Bände habe ich überaus genossen und top bewertet. Die Geschichte war top, die Charaktere sehr gut und die Spannung und Action atemberaubend.
Dieser Band wirkt, als wäre es von einem anderen Author geschrieben worden.
Die erste Hälfte des Buches wird nur immer und immer wieder wiederholt, was bisher in den Bänden davor geschehen ist. Erst gegen Ende wird eine neue Geschichte erzählt und die Spannung steigt.
