Book 20: The Gray Man

The Hunter Gets Hunted

The Hunter Gets Hunted

♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ Audible gets a prize for this one. This was one of their books of the week, or some such promotion, and I got it free. Yep. It’s been in my library for some time, but I just never thought to listen to it. I mean, how good could a “freebie” be? The ratings were good, but I just sort of ignored it, until last week. We were on a big, long road trip and finished our book. So, I was flipping through what I had in my library, looking specifically for something my husband might enjoy (that means it has to have some action!) and decided we should give it a go.

Good move! We both enjoyed this book about a renowned assassin who goes from hunter to hunted in a weird twist of fate. It becomes a story of survival, almost in a Jason Bourne sense, and kept us entertained the whole way through. We both agreed on the 4 star rating and plan to read the other Gray Man books. The author, Mark Greany, has written several books with Tom Clancy, which I find very interesting. Give it a try.

Book 15: You’re Next

A Thriller With a Bit of Everything

♦ ♦ ♦ 1/2 It’s been awhile since I’ve listened to a “thriller” type book. I probably would have said that I was pretty indifferent to the story, but then suddenly found myself pulled deeper and deeper into the book. Because I was listening, I’d sit in the parking lot a few extra minutes wherever I was going to get to a spot where I felt like I could turn the car, and thus my book, off. Guess that’s the sign of a good book! For most of the story, you’ve no idea who the bad guys are, or why they are. Then, once it’s clear… hang on to your hat. Hide your kids!
