While awaiting the next David Balducci book, I read this author's first book, Term Limits , and was immediately hooked! American Assassin is the first in the series for the character, Mitch Rapp, and starts at the beginning of his career in the spy world.
The story holds your interest and I was sad when I finished the book. For me, that's always the sign of a good book, when you don't want it to end. I have since read next book in the series for Mitch Rapp titled, Kill Shot, also excellent. I would recommend to a reader interested in Flynn's books with this character to read them in order.
It is not necessary but the whole of this character is so much more interesting that way! Paperback Verified Purchase.
Chronological Order of the Mitch Rapp Series: Term Limits is not part of the Mitch Rapp series. All book in the series starting with The Survivor have been written by Kyle Mills, who took over the series from the late Vince Flynn. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Waited for two years for this film interpretation of the brilliant writer Vince Flynn's "American Assassin". This flick did not disappoint. There were some plot and event changes in this movie, but generally the important elements of Mitch Rapp's entry into the clandestine world of unsanctioned missions were intact.
Combining the intoxicating character styles of James bond and Jack Reacher, Michael Cuesta Director did a credible job of bringing this popular character Rapp was played by Dylan O'[Brien onto the world stage as the next tough guy agent provocateur acting on the behest of a determined government elite who need a more effective means to fight back against new and increasingly powerful world threats.
One aspect that I found intriguing was the youthful "kid" look and demeanor introduced in this new Rapp. This was an effective juxtaposition against the character played by Michael Keaton Stan Hurley , and came off quite well, and should give fans of O'Brien joy as they watch him mature and develop in real time as the series moves forward. Keaton showed shades of his "Beetlejuice" zaniness at times, and this added some humor during what otherwise were difficult scenes to experience torture.
All-in-all an entertaining and promising start to what should become a classic series Keeps the reader hooked! People have pretty much said everything about the book that can be said. Story moves along at a good pace and still manages to let you know the characters while keeping up the suspense and action.
He went back and wrote this and Kill Shot as prequels to the 15 volume Mitch Rapp series. They made a movie of the same name based on the book. Absolutely loved it! I was intrigued about the books when I heard it was being made into a movie and after a quick Goodreads search on it, I determined it was a book I was intrigued enough about to order, which I did.
And once I started reading it, I was hooked on the story and the character of Mitch Rapp. Rapp is one of those characters that immediately draws you in and keeps you invested in his story. This particular book takes readers through how Rapp got his start as an assassin, going into who he is and where he came from while also showing how he became the man he seemingly becomes throughout the rest of the series.
Once Rapp is recruited by Irene Kennedy and taken to meet Stan Hurley at the start of American Assassin, we start to see how Rapp is different from the others who came before him. All those qualities I listed above start to show themselves in varying different ways, each of which confuse and intrigue the people who either want him to succeed or want him to fail.
Which seems like perfectly good traits for an assassin. See all 5, reviews.

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. In this 11th novel we meet the man who trained Mitch, the mentor, and he is a fantastic, larger-than-life character. I laughed so hard during his torture scenes with the terrorists. Terrific drama.

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 Some people are addicted to drugs. This one is about how Mitch got his start in the assassin business before he became the star player in the war on terror and before there was an official war on terror.
It is set before when some in the clandestine services discerned radical Islamic terror clouds approaching and were trying to prepare for it remember this is fiction. The result was Mitch Rapp whose name Islamofacists use to frighten their children with into good behavior when they are not strapping suicide vests on them to kill innocent men women and children.
If they ever make a movie based on a Vince Flynn book, this is one I would vote for. That is as long as they were faithful to the book. Otherwise they might tick Vince and Mitch off.

Jan 01, Vijai rated it it was ok Shelves: 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 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.
Flynn exactly three pages to span through Rapp's metamorphosis from a teenager who loses his father to a young adult who loses his first love to become this lethal moral compass all of us have come to love. NO, you need to take us into the man's head, show us his raw emotions harden into metal and sharpened by balls to the walls kinda training. Instead, what we are shown is that Rapp was an awesome guy all the while. Not to mention the recent trend of brushing a familial touch to justify the loyalty among the characters; Irene thinks of Rapp as her brother, Hurley thinks of Irene as his niece justifiable by the back-story thankfully provided but come on!
One of the praises very prominently printed on my copy of this book said something to the effect that Mr. Flynn has an eye on Lee Child's action-thriller throne. The fact that this book is "trying" very hard to draw a parallel to Jack Reacher's phenomenal knuckle crunching early-days context story "The Enemy" is not lost on us and I would like to take this opportunity to call FAIL on that.
Not with this book, no sir. View all 9 comments. The majority of the reason why I started this series was because a certain somebody is starring in the movie version out this September.
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 publish 3.
What begins as a way to deliver retribution to those responsible for the death of his high school sweetheart, turns into something so much more. Rapp is the whole package of well honed athletic talent, no nonsense attitude, nerves of steel, quick thinking and adaptability, coupled with dogged determination and the ability to think way outside the box.
So, see how it all begins with this installment.
One can only hope! View all 14 comments. Political thriller fans. Recommended to Matthew by: I have read a couple of the other books in the Mitch Rapp series in the order they were published. Those books came later in the story timeline than American Assassin.
When I found out that they published a couple of prequel books, I figured I would go back and give them a try. That is not a bad thing! You get all kinds of plotting, action, and badassery.
As this is a prequel in the series, it is not in I have read a couple of the other books in the Mitch Rapp series in the order they were published.
A couple things about these types of books that is not a complaint or a praise. Just an observation of two common tropes for this genre: They really like their torture in these books.
The nastier, more uncomfortable, the more painful, the better. So, if you like description of fingernails being ripped out and electrodes being attached to genitals, then this is the genre for you. Since deception and undercover work is the name of the game, many times I get lost with these books. Who is on which side? What is the ultimate endgame of the current mission behind enemy lines?
Isn't he talking to a guy who just killed his friend in the previous scene but now they are on the same side? It's something I have come to expect and it usually all makes sense in the end. What it comes down to is this: View 2 comments. Twenty-three-year-old Mitch Rapp was recruited by Irene Kennedy into a group of highly trained yet clandestine operatives, a division of the CIA. A top athlete, Rapp was incredibly fit and after six months of intense training, he was on his way to his first job in Istanbul.
He gave a final thought to the more than two hundred passengers who had lost their lives that day in the Pan Am Lockerbie terrorist attack — retribution was looking good. As Rapp worked his way across Europe, he finally found Twenty-three-year-old Mitch Rapp was recruited by Irene Kennedy into a group of highly trained yet clandestine operatives, a division of the CIA.
As Rapp worked his way across Europe, he finally found himself in Beirut on a mission of recovery. But would it all go wrong? Would he find himself in the hands of the terrorists himself? The skills he had learned; the devious nature of the hunt — could he survive and achieve his goal? Fast paced, intense and chilling, this spy thriller has plenty of twists and turns, loads of action, and a hero who is worth reading about. Highly recommended. Apr 13, Scott rated it really liked it Shelves: Let me start with a couple of important points before I get knee deep in my review.
Second, I understand there was a less than stellar editing work done on this book in the series as noted in several of the Goodreads reviews I read online. I agree with these points, but am moving past them. Now for my review… Wow! I Let me start with a couple of important points before I get knee deep in my review. I was pleasantly surprised.
To be honest, I think that I was expecting a hardcore military hero that was invincible and boring. Well, that is not the case. I chose to start here so I could see his beginning. This includes meeting his trainer and mentor, his first mission, and the set-up of his organizational team during the growth of terrorism in the middle east.
Why did I like the book? The characters, plotting, and fast moving intertwining plot lines that come together at the end were all strong points of the book. Overall, I was really surprised at how much I enjoyed this first Mitch Rapp adventure. I love reading suspense and thriller authors like Lee Child and David Baldacci, and am now adding Vince Flynn to my list.
Thoughts while reading: Forgot I was reading about grown men for a second. Would've sworn that I was reading about teenage boys in a juvie facility, or some shit. Also, five times so far every ten pages or so the author has brought up the size of men's testicles. This person has large balls, this fella must have big balls, that dude's balls must be big, and so on.
I'm guessing Flynn was a nut man? Ridiculous macho porn for men who insist on talking like Snake Plisken. Sep 29, Hiroto rated it did not like it Shelves: 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? 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??
Though it has to be noted that the book actually follow 4 POVs: Mitch Rapp's- pfffrh that name- and Hursley's. The latter is the most dumb and grossly written character of the book, but he's entertaining like, at the end of his very first POV, we learn that he pisses in the bush of his very cool estate. I don't give a damn? I don't know what that adds to the story, and that actually doesn't say a lot about this character. There's one thing the book does right I think: So if the upcoming film why did you think I read this book in the first place follows the same pace and story, maybe we'll have actors with names and talent playing them, and they'll have screentime, and wouldn't that be a nice change?
Thought I read somewhere they cast a turkish actress I think, and I have no idea what her role will be, since the only two named female characters of this book are both white and blonde.
There were a lot of gimmicky phrase such as "million years of survival instincts embedded into the human brain like gene". Annnnd the two main things I didn't like about it: The second point is: Now, i haven't read a lot of books of this gendra.
Maybe it's the norm, it's suppposed to make the americans readers feel like the baddest mofo in the planet. That's why I giggled in the more ridiculous parts.
I won't mention the plotholes because, welp, but I will add that there weren't even that much of action. I expected to feel at least some tension, but I wasn't pumped up in the slightest. I don't understand why you'd sign another franchise, but you know, good luck my dude, have fun. View all 19 comments.
This was exceptional with one disclaimer 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 th This was exceptional with one disclaimer 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 book but in one area an entire name was substituted with the name of a different primary character who was most certainly not present in the room - this kind of error attacked the rhythm and flow of the book and distracted me on too many occasions.
It is a shame that such a great story was marred by so many glaring errors. I saw the interview with Vince Flynn after the release of the book and remembered him saying that in this prequel even he "learned things about Mitch Rapp" that he did not previously know. I was struck, while reading, about how true that is. Rapp is a great character who has always been easy to root for. This book only furthers my affection for him and my desire to know him more.
The end of the book left a number of things teased or unanswered leaving me wondering if there are more prequels to come. Without question I enjoyed the story, was angry and unnerved by the realistic implications of the plot and my gratitude for real American Black Ops was furthered. While reading this I cannot help but think of Winston Churchill's famous quote: View all 5 comments.

May he rest in peace. Jul 16, Doug Bradshaw rated it really liked it. 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. 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 This is good tough American male stuff.
It's not quite as sophisticated as Jack Bauer and "24", but it has that same tough agent willing to do what it takes even if it means ignoring the more politically correct bosses, attitude. Here is a simple, likable, extremely tough athletic guy willing to sacrifice his limbs and life to beat the terrorists. The toughest and most pure quarterback you'll ever meet. And he's able, as a young guy, to show the leaders at the top how it needs to be done and how they have strayed from their real missions and directives by being too politically correct.
Sort of like the warnings the drug companies have to give us on TV, there is extreme violence, graphic killing, the toughest, worst, sob drill sergeant ever, a little romance but nothing you women will enjoy, and other such fun and games.
I loved it and will now go to the first in the series. I'd give it five stars, but I'm afraid some of my old English Professors may be reading this and, the book certainly isn't literature. But it is efficient, has some great moments and will give you a vicarious thrill here and there, although, sometimes, perhaps, a little over the top. But I'd never cut anything out if I were the editor.

Best of the espionage action thriller genre. Five stars.
View all 3 comments. Aug 05, Lindsay rated it it was ok. 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. May 17, Kevin rated it it was amazing Shelves: Ok, how in the world have I missed this author, these characters, these books?!
I think I may have teared up a little, but if not an actual tear, I at least danced. At the risk of oversimplifying 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 Ok, how in the world have I missed this author, these characters, these books?! Great characters, deep courage and non-stop action. I cannot wait to read the next in this series! View all 17 comments.

Mitch Rapp is one young man with a huge chip on his shoulders that verges on a death wish.
Mitch lost the love of his life in a cruel, mindless act of terrorism. The movie no doubt will be dif 1 in the Mitch Rapp Series. The movie no doubt will be different. Mitch now lives for one purpose and one purpose only to take revenge on the people who perpetrated this unspeakable act. When Director Kennedy tells Mitch what she has in mind Mitch starts salivating.
Six months of intensive training and Mitch is ready to be released on an unsuspecting terrorist world. By the time the terrorists know what has happened they have lost millions in funds. The factions start blaming each other of stealing the money. High placed agents are turning up dead. The terrorists are being terrorised. The pace is frenetic. The tension is nail bitting and a lot of Zealots get a quick passage to paradise. Recommended if you like your reading with more than a touch of violence.
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 In a word, superb.

I'd compare the international tone of these to Robert Ludlum's novels, but that would be doing Flynn an injustice as he stands tall in his own right as an author in this particular sub-genre. The 'do not disturb' sign will be well and truly on display in our household for the foreseeable future as I read the rest of the Mitch Rapp series! 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! I'll m 4 Stars Fast-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.
