did not like it
Read in July, 2009

OK this is going to be the last Vince Flynn that I read. The underlying sentiment of "liberals are bad, counterterrorism fighters are awesome" is getting a little tiring, this time compounded with "Jews are abused and Palastine is evil"... no matter how many patronizing concessions he tries to make toward the other side. Also I am tired of VF being so patronizing to his readers that he feels like he has to explain every character's feelings word-for-word. "While Mitch was more of a ____ kind of person, Anna was the opposite, she was more of a _____ kind of person" and the like. Are we too stupid to figure out what personality traits the MAIN CHARACTERS of the story are characterized by?!? After 3 books, it's getting really grating. I am not an idiot. I know by now who Mitch Rapp is. You don't have to remind me "what he's like" on page 200 of the 4th book in a series.

Brett Tompkins The reason you get a lot of the same information in books like this is because it is set up so anyone can pick up any book in the series and not be lost. Dale Brown does the same thing, so that each book, even though it's part of a series, can stand on it's own. Cheers!
