    1. They need to hire me to proof for them. I’ve come across more than a few books with an unacceptable amount of typos here lately. Is no one reading this stuff before it goes to press?And I’m not that much of an anal freak, but 20 typos before page 78 is too many.The reason for my annoyance is because Vince Flynn is a great writer, and I believe I read he is dyslexic, thus he does not have a dedicated team supporting him. That’s a shame because his Mitch Rapp novels tap into the raw emotion [...]


    2. Some people are addicted to drugs. I am happily addicted to Vince Flynn's books and the exploits of his truly American hero, Mitch Rapp. My wife and daughter share my addiction, but they have not had their fix yet because I got to read Flynn's newest book first. Which is only fair since I bought it. My only complaint is that now I will have to wait another year for the next book. Withdrawal can be tough.Oh, about the book? C'mon, it's Vince Flynn and Mitch Rapp. This one is about how Mitch got h [...]


    3. Look, here's something about us diehard action-thriller fanboys - we will forgive an author's imprudence with a few weak spots in the plot now and then as long as we get our action-gasm in totality but what we don't do is tolerate preachy one-sided-win story. Two ingredients which this author is dishing out in heaps in this book. I am not even going to talk about the piss poor editing, its the gross injustice that has been meted out to Mitch Rapp that I am very disappointed with. It took Mr. Fly [...]


    4. 3.5 StarsI’m not gonna lie. The majority of the reason why I started this series was because a certain somebody is starring in the movie version out this September. So as a fangirl, it’s only prudent and necessary to see what this is all about. It’s also not a secret that I love me a military spy action thriller, and with the added bonus of DoB?? That combo is just too hard to resist. Depending on what kind of reader you are, you can start with Transfer of Power, which was the first book p [...]


    5. Oh Dylan, Dylan, Dylan my good dude why.Where do I start? The character development is piss poor. So our good Mitch Rapp (wtf is this name? it sounds so dumb??) lost his father at 13yo because of a heart attack and his highschool sweetheart in a terrorist attack so he's super familiar with death (ok?) and his heart is bursting with REVENGE. Coincidentally he's picked out by Langlsey wich is like a branch of the CIA, even thought he didn't do antyhing to be noticed (ok??) and he's sent off to a s [...]


    6. Let me start with a couple of important points before I get knee deep in my review. First, this is my first time reading a Vince Flynn “Mitch Rapp” book. I have a friend who enjoys reading Lee Child’s “Reacher” series like I do, and he recommended this series to me. Second, I understand there was a less than stellar editing work done on this book in the series as noted in several of the reviews I read online. I agree with these points, but am moving past them.Now for my review… Wow! [...]


    7. This was exceptional with one disclaimer it was obviously rushed to publishing with little editing. While waiting for my copy to arrive I read that other fans had noticed more than the occasional typos in the text and were bothered by them. I wondered if perhaps they were being a little over the top. Unfortunately, I found myself equally bothered. It is understandable that sometimes a "i" will be replaced with an "l" (as in the word "cabbie" being written as "cabble" in the last portion of the b [...]


    8. A decent prequel to the entire MITCH RAPP series, though i did not feel it was Flynn's best. It introduces us to the renegade agent that RAPP becomes and how he got that ice water running through his veins.



    9. This is good tough American male stuff. I enjoyed as much as some of you women readers enjoy a romance novel with handsome vampires and whatnot. It made me almost laugh to read it, like going back in time to the joy of reading my first three or four Ludlum novels. This is the 11th book in a series about a CIA assassin named Mitch Rapp. It is the prequel to the other already told stories and I was told I may as well read it first. It's not quite as sophisticated as Jack Bauer and "24", but it has [...]


    10. ”Retribution is a punishment that is morally right and fully deserved.”This was even better than expected! It’s Tom Clancy minus the infodumps, James Bond with out the misogyny and absurdity, Jason Bourn without all the mystery - This. Was. Good.Mitch Rapp is a gifted college athlete who lost the love of his life when terrorist put a bomb on Pan Am Flight 103- it exploded over Lockerbie, Scotland. This transformed Rapp and he came to the notice of Irene Kennedy, CIA, who had been looking f [...]


    11. 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 [...]


    12. Ok, how in the world have I missed this author, these characters, these books?! You know that feeling you get when you realize you found a new (to you) outstanding author and he/she has piles of books you have not yet read? I think I may have teared up a little, but if not an actual tear, I at least danced. At the risk of oversimplifying this book rocked! It reminded me a bit of a Lee Child book where the main character is still affiliated with the military. Great characters, deep courage and no [...]


    13. 4 StarsFast-paced with a tight plot, American Assassin is the introductory story (in a long and ongoing series) following CIA counter-terrorist super-spy Mitch Rapp. Although the 11th published release of the series, American Assassin is set first, chronologically speaking, and showcases how (and why) young Mitch was originally recruited by the CIA. I enjoyed the hell out of this story! Here, Flynn created an impressively written action/thriller story, featuring some damn cool characters. I'll m [...]


    14. Although I don't think many people actually follow what I say, I have to retract the criticism I made of Flynn's last few books. Actually, I'm not going to retract them, because they were true--Flynn was letting his ideology get in the way of the storytelling. Rather, I will say that he's returned to the stuff that made his earlier work great--compelling characters, amazing story lines, and a breathtaking adventure that leaves you sorry when the book ends.Flynn takes his hero, Mitch Rapp, back t [...]


    15. In a word, superb.This is why I love reading thrillers - every now and again, you discover a new series, read the first one and make a decision halfway through that you're going to devour the rest of the author's work as fast as possible.I'd been hearing things about this series for a couple of years but other commitments kept me away. I'm kicking myself - hard.Flynn's writing is fluid, he keeps the words simple while providing enough information that lets the reader's imagination to fly. I'd co [...]


    16. Ok, so it's really mindless macho action from beginning to end, but you know what you're getting and Flynn does it well. For me, it's a break from research & writing, so it serves a useful purpose.


    17. AWESOME! I liked it alot :) But missed some thing tho. Can't wait to see the movie. Gonna write a litte review for this laterrr! :3


    18. I moderately enjoyed the book and had no trouble finishing it- although far too much viciously gratuitous violence in far too much detail - but could not really relate to many of the characters, including Mitch Rapp, the MC. Despite the fact that this book took us back to his training and the motivation behind becoming a black ops assassin for the US government, there still seemed to be a disconnect, and barely developed relationships that don't seem to go anywhere.I gave 3 stars, which equates [...]


    19. A quick, mostly by the numbers thriller that came to a fairly abrupt conclusion. A couple of differences including an interesting off the books scenario and a main character who doesn't have a military background make the series just intriguing enough for me to try the second bookbut just barely.5/10



    20. I am putting it out there in the first sentence; I think this is the best novel I have read this year. Yes, I am a big Mitch Rapp fan; I think anyone that has followed this blog knows I love the character as much as I enjoy some of the big names out there today. Vince Flynn just hits a grand slam as he uses American Assassin, a prequel, to explain for us in tremendous detail, what makes Mitch Rapp so Mitch Rapp. I loved every word of it! Here is a piece from the inside jacket: ”Before he was c [...]


    21. Vince Flynn doesn't disappoint with this superbly smart, detailed, high-action spy thriller that makes you feel that you have security clearance to even read the book. Flynn's unparalleled access into the minds and motivations of his characters and the fast-paced timing of his novels, makes this a gold star winner. Frankly, you can't go wrong with any of his books, and American Assassin is no exception. This is the kind of book that you can tell who are the good guys and who are the bad guys, an [...]


    22. I purchased this paperback from for 0.97 cents. I was introduced to Vince Flynn thru a co-worker who has read all 12 of the Mitch Rapp (main character) series. I read the 1st one called "Transfer of Power" and really enjoyed it. "American Assassin" is #11 of the series but is actually the prequel to all the other Mitch Rapp novels. Flynn has been compared to Tom Clancy without the in depth, technical jargon. I've never read any of Clancy's books but have seen most of the movies based on his nov [...]


    23. Flimsy. Wholly lacking merit, even in the mindless "beach book" world that Flynn inhabits. Where it not for the brand he created among knuckle-draggers years before publishing became impoverished/selective, this author would never break through with this claptrap. I'm trying earnestly to write a political thriller with a modicum of merit. Flynn's only value to me is to demonstrate what to avoid.


    24. A book about a CIA superagent? A mission of vengeance ??Count me in !!!!!Mitch takes no shit home!!!!!!!!! THAT’S what I like!!!!


    25. Update: I just finished rereading American Assassin for the second time. American Assassin was just as action-packed and jaw-dropping as I remembered it. But. The book didn't grab me and hold me hostage in order to force me to read the rest of the series back to back in a matter of day like the first time I read it. I still enjoyed it as much as I did the first time but it was missing something? Perhaps because I've already read it before and this just isn't a re-read type of book for me?Either [...]


    26. If you are thriller fan and after reading David Baldacci or Lee Child's Personal you feel there is something missing, then read American Assassin it will satisfy your quench :). To me i haven't came across such a fast paced thriller read.American Assassian is introduction of Mitch Rapp, how he Rapp initially came to work for the CIA, Sailing from childhood to youth, how he falls in love and how Rapp lost his love in the terrorist bombing of Pan Am flight 103. Grief-stricken, he swears revenge on [...]


    27. AMERICAN ASSASSIN REVIEW: NOVEL VS. FILMI’ve been a recent convert to the Mitch Rapp novels by the late U.S. thriller author Vince Flynn, starting with The Last Man and then moving onto earlier books. Flynn’s style is realistic action with sharp prose and multi-dimensional characters – even when they are psychopathic terrorists or narcissistic congressmen. But what I like most about the Rapp character is his doggedness to do what is right, regardless of the impacts on the people around him [...]


    28. I like Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp Character. You get action but the character is more fully imagined than some. Of course it took a few books to fill him out and it seems that he may be somehow distantly related to the Cartwright family of the Ponderosa. (view spoiler)[It seems that women he loves may have a shorter than usual life expectancy. (hide spoiler)]Anyway, here we drop back and get a prequel (not a big fan of prequels in general, but this one works and I like it). We've seen Rapp's life [...]
