What did you love best about The Hunter?
The dark side. There is no hero, he is no hero.
Who was your favorite character and why?
The British assassin. Because he is a slightly twisted fellow.
Which scene was your favorite?

Fast paced right from the go and kept me on the edge of my seat.
Will definitely buy the next one in the series.
Would you try another book written by Tom Wood or narrated by Daniel Philpott?
Probably would not try another book by this author, but the narrator was good overall.
Would you recommend The Hunter to your friends? Why or why not?
Not really. Whilst the writing is good and the plot reasonable, if not startlingly original, I felt that there is just too much action and not enough intrigue to maintain interest. In fact, the almost constant gun battles and chases are unrelenting and, eventually, terribly tedious. I gave up completely about an hour out from the end when yet another fight and chase broke out in exhaustive and exhausting detail and I lost interest in the outcome of the story and the fate of the main character.
Which character – as performed by Daniel Philpott – was your favourite?
The narrator played the various parts without overdoing the accents, but the characters were hardly engaging enough to choose any favourite performance from Mr Philpott.
Did The Hunter inspire you to do anything?
Luckily, I'm not given to indulging in murderous rampages with automatic weapons, so no.
Any additional comments?
I love a good action story - Frederick Forsyth, Gerald Seymour etc. - and the action scenes in this book were certainly well written and finely detailed, but for me (an ex-Army Officer) it was just a bit too wearing in the end.

What made the experience of listening to The Hunter the most enjoyable?
Tom Wood appears to have struck the perfect balance between detail, realism and story. This is a superbly written novel. The story is a little Dexter-like: you can't help but loving the bad guy. I have already downloaded the next book in the series, I just hope Tom keeps them coming!

This novel is totally unbelievable on every level. Russia have mounted a massive effort to salvage the missiles. There is no way the CIA would not have known about this kind of operation. No one survives seven or more gunfights with professional killers. This novel is a teenage boys comic book.
