Unexpected, not your usual plot.

What made the experience of listening to Reflexive Fire the most enjoyable?

Did not expect such an interesting storyline, it kept me on the edge of my seat. Very eye opening. The narrator was awesome, he did an interesting job in bringing the characters to life, without overdoing it.. The book was not hard to stay in tuned with, a pleasant voice, easy on the ears.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Deckard, he turns the tables and leads his private army against the men against those who have it coming to them. I was swept away by the action on the ship, where he has been exposed and all hell breaks loose, and then in the end how the government, sweeps mostly everything under the rug, with ridiculous explanations, so true to real life in so many ways.

Which scene was your favorite?

The scene where Cabal is wanting to end life as we all know it, the progressive utopia, is talking in a cult setting. The scene is similar to a Satan Cult, except it is worse, as you find out later.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes, it really makes you wonder who you can trust. The book was given a good name, because it really will leave you reflexive as to any of this is possible.

Any additional comments?

I don't know if this should be considered courage , but Jack Murphy isn't afraid to let important characters get snuffed in all the spray of shrapnel and deluge of full-auto fire. The body count is high. What an exciting adventure!

- Pattyhook "I am a narrator myself and appreciate what a huge undertaking it is to produce a book like this."

Great action, bad narration

I purchased this book due to its recommendations for being a good military action thriller. My first experience was bad because I could not get over the narrator, I then returned the book for a refund on my credit. After thinking on it for a bit and enjoying the story I had heard so far I decided to purchase the book again and tough it out.

I am glad I listened to the whole book because it was a action packed mercenary thriller that seemed to be well researched even though it read like a Michael Bay movie. I would recommended the story for those wanting decent gritty action.

The narrator though is pretty bad. I am not certain if English is his first language, but he constantly mis pronounces common words throughout the book. It took me away from the story at times. He also sounds like a sports announcer and does not pace well or pause for effect. Overall it was not a deal breaker, but I wish they used someone different.

If you can get past the narrator, I think you will enjoy this book.
