A little racially offered, but tolerating that, leaves a well spun tale with likeable characters.

A shameless cash grab ending.

the book had a good speed and interesting story to carry it through. Someone directed this to be a cliffhanger rather than a self sustaining book. It will take but one more Audible Original to takes my good money worth a whole stor:The End!!!

...and it will be if this kind if cash grab again Audible Originals will meet my End.
This is my warning.

Painful Start. worth the wait.

As an audiobook, only once before have I started out so challenged to get through the middle. starting out with a bit of a back-story it too far to long to get to the point. I really enjoyed the last eighty percent of the listen, however almost two hours of rewinding. re-listening, and regretting the choice for the first hours' plus content was almost too much.
I'm going back in for number two in the series with some renewed hope for these characters. I think if I get such a tough start again I may just return the title to make my point crystal clear. These are not inexpensive paperbacks, rather an investment into what should be a good book and great performance. 4 stars for a terrible first twelve chapters.

I listened intently to the diminishing capability of the Gray Man and was saddened by how the character has become more lucky than fierce.
The Audible Production became a posted together mess of clips as I noticed from chapter 56 to the end. This brought me very close to calling it quits and asking for my first ever refund in a 200 title collection. Deteriorating character coupled with a lazy and rushed audio production should leave this only for the devout fan.

After completing The Making of the Atomic Bomb I searched out and bought this audiobook with a credit to carry on right away. After completing what I felt was extremely short and to the point, not at all what I had just experienced, it was noted at the end that this work was abridged. Needless to say, as one who never- EVER- buys abridged works I was not happy. I won’t return it, since I can't seem to find a full audio version. It was great to have the author's own words read by himself, lending the perfect inflections and words rolled out as they belonged. Content wise, I seem to have been forced to order a print copy, available through Amazon and delivered within two days, to put away the app for a bit and squeeze in some quiet time to evaluate the full message from the comfort of the easy chair. Feeling a bit cheated, but a lot inspired.

Nothing About this is Wrong NO REGRET

When I started this a month ago at an hour a day I hoped for a journey of education. I missed the boat on that. This is the compilation of too many lives to imagine. Details, Facts, Context. The 'all in' experience of GREATNESS within the context of not only humanity, but also universal everything from origin to extinction . I couldn't miss the next part and I cant wait to explore history with this genius next and again. Great Author, Great Narration. BUY NOW. Never regret.

Ludlum brought an art to this craft of perfectly describing everything and still keeping the story moving forward at a believable and enveloping pace. Classic story of good challenged again with a real hero.

With modest support available but endless challenges and ethical choices to make The Gray Man squeaks through another modern, relevant , and totally plausible international escapade.
