Because I could rant for pages. Look, I'm right of center and have been known to enjoy Tom Clancy novels. Flynn according to the wiki was inspired to write the book by The Government Racket: I'm sympathetic to the cause--really am.
I can't enjoy this or take this seriously. View all 5 comments. Sep 16, Bev Walkling rated it really liked it Shelves: I found this book to be well-written, fast moving and rather frightening in that it seems all too possible that governments do indeed run the way the American government is described in this novel.
It describes what happens when people are fed up with a corrupt government and corrupt politicians and decide to take out some of the bad guys and hold the government to ransom. A section on page really stood out for me. You see, we are not only taught how to kill, but for our own sanity, we are taught to look at killing as a justifiable action in a world where there are good and bad people, where the bad people are not supposed to win.
Think for a minute about what we ask a commando to do. We send them to do some very ugly things, and we tell them they are doing it to protect the United States of America. As commandos, we rationalize that we are ridding the world of a bad person, that we are protecting America. What do you think would happen if one of these highly trained individuals realized that the politicians running his own country pose a bigger threat to the security of America's future than the religious extremist that he just flew halfway around the world to kill?

A stand alone story with a lot of good background information on certain characters. Surprisingly, I have not seen them in other Vince Flynn works as yet. In the story, dirty Senators and Congressmen are being assassinated for working for themselves rather than being representatives of the people.
N Not even a mention of Mitch Rapp here, but many other characters that fans of Vince Flynn will recognize. All the President and his Chief of Staff care about are the public opinion polls and their reelection chances.
Typical politics in Washington until two honest Senators are killed. Only this time their federal agent bodyguards are killed along with them. Secrets are threatened to be unleashed and no one knows if and when the assassins will strike next. And there is no Mitch Rapp to save the day and even if Rapp wasn't still in college or High School he probably would have opted to help the assassins so that is the tone of the story. This is my 7th Vince Flynn novel and Term Limits is just as good as his other works even without his star character Mitch Rapp.
Jan 10, Devon Hernandez rated it it was amazing. Fast-paced political intrigue is excellent! Read this on the recommendation of a friend, and wasn't disappointed.
Working on the rest of the "Mitch Rapp" books by this author. It also made me think hard about the plot and how that would play out in real-life: Definitely makes the brain waves work. Oct 19, Jeff rated it really liked it Shelves: American citizens are shocked—and even pleased—when several corrupt politicians are assassinated.
A group of commandos is responsible for the killings. While the president and his administration are justifiably befuddled, a second group who kills more politicians muddies the water even further. The storyline is relevant to today. Compared to his other books, this is more reading. Dec 22, Robert Beardsley rated it liked it Shelves: Liked it didn't love it because the viewpoint is so far right wing it borders fascism and that soured me..
Yes, i am angry at some of the crap that goes on in government but not as angry as the novel portrays. The novel could have more likely been set in a third world country when people take the law into their own hands and depose politicians at will.
Despite its viewpoint, the novel is imminently readable and very well constructed. View all 6 comments. Not an easy book to write this, I guess. When just about everyone - certain politicians excepted - would think "Yeah! That's what I'm talking about! And a brave theme for Vince Flynn to take on in his first outing as a writer.
Though, it may not be his very, very first I suspect. Either that, or he sprang into the game from nowhere as a fully-fledged brilliant writer of this sort of thing. Because, this is an absolutely superb book. From the "oh, good lord, Not an easy book to write this, I guess.
From the "oh, good lord, how is he going to write that! It features several characters who also continue into the Mitch Rapp series proper, including one, I won't say who, who really shouldn't get out of this book either alive, or without having spent a long time in jail, but nothing of what they do here, is ever mentioned in the subsequent series. I did find that a little strange. Read it, see what you think. It's here that you can see why the political stuff in the later books was so good, so compulsive.
He really can write this sort of thing absolutely perfectly. I can't guess his politics, but I'd be pretty sure he sees the world the same was as me, which is very cool. I read this after I've read all the Mitch Rapp series, through not really knowing about it, rather than meaning to.
I'd say, like me, you could read this wherever you are in the series. Start with it and the rest will make sense. Finish with it and your admiration for Vince Flynn will just increase. What a talent was taken away from us. The best book blog: Speesh Reads The best Facebook Page: Apr 01, William rated it it was amazing. Very good stand alone that, without given credit, turned into the Mitch Rapp series. From the point of view of this site, and others like it, I find no reason that this book was not tagged as a prequel to Rapp series; there are a half dozen characters that will carry on.
I've read six Rapp books and Coleman was explained more in "Term Limits" than those six. So, if someone wants to start Rapp I would recommend "Term Limits" first. This was another action packed thriller from Vince Flynn. This one featured a protagonist other than Mitch Rapp which made for an interesting change. The action was pretty much non-stop, and ended with a great climax. This book gives new meaning to the phrase "term limits". An amazing suspenseful tell all tale about corruption, assassinations and a perfect example of the need for term limits on elected officials in Washington.
In this thriller three Congressmen are assassinated by Ex-American Commandos merely carrying out what they have been trained to do. Protect America from its enemies by any means necessary. The only catch is, they have realized the more potent threats are actually in Washington rather than overseas. The national debt was only trillion at t An amazing suspenseful tell all tale about corruption, assassinations and a perfect example of the need for term limits on elected officials in Washington.
The national debt was only trillion at the time of this book's writing and that was unacceptable to these Ex-Navy SEALS, imagine today, with Violence, of course is not the answer, but you can make a difference at the voting booth.
This book is very capable of waking up the apathetic people of America to the self serving political games being played in Washington. Nov 07, Craig rated it really liked it Shelves: A certain faction, not pleased with the litany of broken promises and misguided programs made by corrupt politicians deemed destructive of the nation's national security and continuance , take matters into their own hands and kill two Senators and two Congressmen within a matter of days.
There are many twists and turns. The plot is well conceived although significant portions of the plot line are implausible and diminish the viability of the story. Nevertheless, it was an engrossing read. I disagreed with the author's use of profanity and believe a truly great author can tell a story without stooping to profanity. In my estimation, a great writer need not and will not use profanity. Apr 25, Mr. Gottshalk rated it really liked it. Well, I have never read Vince Flynn before, but now I see why his books have sold millions of copies worldwide!
There are many layers to the plot, many characters who are all after various things - from justice, to power, to money, to revenge. I have to admit that there was enough intrigue to keep me turning pages in this lengthy novel, although the more I read, the stinkier it got like an onion , because it exposes what ails Washington, D.
I would hope that the real politicians in our nation Well, I have never read Vince Flynn before, but now I see why his books have sold millions of copies worldwide!
I would hope that the real politicians in our nation's capital are not this corrupt, but it's hard to say. The book is nearly 20 years old but the subjects of national debt and security are prevalent today.
