Lindsay Waite, August 7, 2012 (view all comments by Lindsay Waite)
I was curious about the Vince Flynn series featuring Mitch Rapp since the books do well on the NY Times Bestseller list and I like thrillers. I was less than thrilled to see endorsements by folks of the Glenn Beck ilk. Nevertheless, I read this book, and likened it to a "less well-written-than-the Bourne-series" book. In other words, I prefer the writing of Robert Ludlum. This is a spy versus spy story, with the requisite close calls, seemingly impossible dilemmas, and shoot-outs. A bit too much torture for me, and I think the characters are two-dimensional. I also didn't like the fact that virtually all the Russians and Arabs are super-evil and all the Americans are the white-hat guys and gals. Stereotypes and nationalism are to be expected, but I would have found this book to be better if the characters and cultures weren't portrayed in such a cardboard manner. That being said, it did pass the time and was mildly entertaining. I hear that this book is the basis of an upcoming film. I hope the film avoids such broad sweeps.
