    This book was as good as the others in the series, which is to say, really good. I like the pacing. The author uses short chapters as the action increases, which gives the sense of action moving more quickly. There are times I only have a few minutes to read, and long developed chapters don’t appeal to me in those moments. This book worked perfectly in small pieces, which is part of why I was able to finish it quickly. At slightly under 400 pages hardcover, I was able to read 100 pages or so p [...]

    I STILL love Scot Harvath! This book is the first to introduce "the Troll". I loved everything except for the end of the book, which I totally wasn't expecting, which definitely leads to a sequel (which I already know since I've read a lot of them).United States agents capture an international terrorist in Somalia, using a covert operation, and take him to a location in New York City. In the meantime, Scot Harvath has been on a secret operation in Canada to capture another terrorist, also taken [...]

    This book may have passed for a decent, somewhat badly written yet still entertaining, espionage thriller. However, any chance the book had was ruined by the fact that it functioned better as a piece of right wing propaganda than as a piece of entertainment.I don't really care what Brad Thor's political views are, I don't particularly care that he and I differ, and I don't even mind if he infuses those views into the novel. However, when there is more focus on said views than an actual story, th [...]

    U.S. propaganda in the guise of a fiction book. I don't think Brad Thor is an exceptional writer, but I've been able to stomach some of his previous book. They were heavy on the "patriotism" but not overboard. This book goes way beyond patriotism into something close to idolatry of the U.S. and how everybody should die for it. I particularly found interesting the opening scenes with Mr. Thor's take on Canada.

    SUBJECTIVE REVEIW FOLLOWS:I just finished reading this book for the second time and it is absolutely kick-ass action adventure with thriller lathered all around it. Thor even gives us romance at the end, as Scot Harvath meets his match in a woman. Whether this storyline is credible might be debatable, but you cannot ignore the sheer intensity of the action in this book. Only Vince Flynn in recent years has the same kind of edge of the seat capacity to completely capture the reader's total focus [...]

    How can one really outright enjoy the first Die Hard movie then absolutely hate the sequel(s)? How can one ignore the unlikely premise/s and focus on the truly senseless but highly entertaining onscreen mayhem? The answers to these questions are important, aren't they?They relate to how one will feel about this book by Brad Thor.This was my first Thor book. First, the aspects of it that I liked: the action, the armaments and , er, the action. Ok, this a short list, but there was a lot of it in v [...]

    I could not even finish this due to the rah-rah "The USA owns the planet and can do anything it wants to those who can't fight back even if it violates our own law and the international treaties we have signed." and because it is hatefully racist against Muslims. Since George Bush committed the terroristic act of invading two countries-Afghanistan and Iraq- that had not only NOT attacked us but were incapable of it, the right wing and the military and our spook agencies have thoroughly routed th [...]

    Read the full review at my site Digital AmritI don’t care how many Starbucks are in my neighbourhood. how many digital pictures my secretary can cram onto a single memory card, or how realistic the imagery is on my nephew’s new Play Station, we still live in a world where might makes right.Introduction‘Takedown’ is written by Brad Thor. It is the fourth book in the ‘Scot Harvath’ series. It is an action thriller and it stars the eponymous ‘Scot Harvath’.The overall synopsis of th [...]

    Upgrading to a two. About my 7th or 8th. Brad Thor novel, and likely my last. Just too much nonsensical action for the sake of action. Too much "off the grid" action. Parts of the book I somewhat enjoy, ie, the Troll. But way too much of the story is overdone for the sake of action. Writing is nothing to brag about. Not my cup of tea. I've tried and repeated Mr. Thor's books, but I'm afraid I have to quit.

    Not my favorite Brad Thor book - it got a little graphic at some points, but kept me engaged and pages kept turning. Leads directly into next book (which I’ll probably read)

    Take Down This Book And Read ItThis novel was another good story in the series. It had a logical plot with a lot of action. Some of the characters were unique and some of the survivors and deaths were unexpected.

    'Takedown' is the best of the six Brad Thor novels I've read so far. It's more than a bit comic booky and I could have seen this as a film with Ray Harryhausen special effects. Reality is handled fast and loose.The story is bad guys vs good guys. The bad guys are mighty ambitious and accomplish their goals. Though, how they pull off such an extensive set of actions is not explained and I'm not sure how a writer would without adding another thousand pages.Setting that aside as being the most comi [...]

    This is the 5th in the Scot Harvath Series by Brad Thor and not as well done as some of the others I have read previously. Manhattan, NY is under siege by a terrorists group that has destroyed all bridge and waterway entries or exits from the rest of New York. Harvath and a loose band of physically handicapped x-military soldiers, along with Harvath’s close friend, attempt to find and shut down the primary threatening operation. This operation, designed by the terrorist, has the ultimate purpo [...]

    America has just unwittingly drawn the world's deadliest enemy to its doorstep.After years without a terrorist attack on American soil, one group has picked the 4th July weekend to pull out all the stops. In a perfectly executed attack, all the bridges and tunnels leading into and out of Manhattan are destroyed just as thousands of commuters begin their holiday exodus. With domestic efforts focused on search and rescue, a deadly team of highly-trained foreign soldiers methodically makes its way [...]

    If you love to read about explosions and mayhem going on al the time, then this book is for you. There is plenty of political backstabbing, which makes for an endless mystery till the very end. I'm not sure what it is about this book, but it seems like all he wanted to write this book for was to just lots of stuff blow up. Unfortunately, it seems like I'm only reading this book to finish it, not enjoy it. But, like I said, if you like to read about lots of stuff blowing up, this is perfect for y [...]

    This book felt more like 24 than any of the earlier ones, and that's not necessarily a bad thing. Harvath is a great protagonist, and it's entertaining to watch him kick butt and take names.In this novel, terrorists have destroyed the bridges and tunnels connecting Manhattan to the mainland. They are searching for one of their own who's being held covertly by US government operatives. Harvath happens to be on the island with a buddy to celebrate July 4th, and they get involved in finding out wha [...]

    My mom bought me this book. Its pretty stereotypical of its genre, and predictable. Its as if i was reading an action movie script - mind you, thats not a criticism. It borders on propaganda, and it evokes all the macho man cliches that i know are total crap, knowing many who serve or who have served, in various roles in the military. For what it is, its ok. Clancy is kinda of tripe too but does it marginally better.

    I can't believe I'm still reading this series. The main theme of the 5th installment of the Harvath series iswait for itterrorism is bad. Shit blows up, Harvath saves the day, almost all the bad guys die, almost all the good guys lived a midget escapes certain death by riding a dog like a horse. I'm not making that last part up either. It's probably going to end up being the reason I read #6.

    I've been getting more uncomfortable with Brad Thor's rampant gung-ho Rightism as the series progressed, but by page 30 of this book he has totally lost me with his bollocks about the poor screening of asylum seekers in Canada leading to a wave of terrorists crossing the border into the US.Fake news. He must be very happy with Trump as president.

    This series has the same premise as the Vince Flynn books, but lacks in readability. Thor's writing is elementary in nature and I found myself thinking, "I'm not in 1st grade, why are you writing like I am." I was so annoyed with his style that I stopped reading the series. Scot Harvath also isn't nearlly as BA as Mitch Rapp.

    I tried to read this book, but it was too boring. very political thriller, which isnt my thing. i got to page 14 and decided to return it lol.

    A pretty fast paced and good book by Brad Thor, reprising his protagonist Scot Harvath. The scene is set at the beginning with an explosive start. Two black ops covert operations to nab the Bomb-maker and his nephew who made the 9/11 bombs and bring them back to US (without outsourcing them to other friendly countries of US). This gets the jihadists enraged and introduces "The Troll" in this book who is some kind of a Master Information vault and he has any and all information about anything whi [...]

    DNF after 50 pages Couldn't stand the overly macho "Rah rah 'Murica's the best" tone of the book. As a Canadian, I was quite insulted by the insinuation that terrorists are refugees that come across the border from Canada and that the police gave a "wink and a wave" when the American took the suspected bomb maker across the border for trial. Last time I checked, terrorists are usually home grown. Ugh.

    Can't decide whether Brad Thor is intentionally one track minded, hopelessly pro-american or writes a character in Scot which almost make him invincible, he can become slightly vitriolic. nonetheless this series is engaging in a fun and fast paced way that makes you want to hanker for more. Its not that cerebral and necessary for one's life, but if you are looking for a fun action read with plenty of action quips, then this series is for you

    All of Brad Thor's books have been exciting, but this one was exceptionally fast-paced, keeping me on the edge of my seat the whole time. I liked that the formula was a little different--the small group of comrades working together rather than Scot working alone, the less-than-perfectly-gorgeous woman character, and the lack of true resolution at the end. Overall, a good book! I'm looking forward to the next one already.

    Has great potentialThis story had a boatload of potential and I believe it could have been better. I only wish Scot Harvath had more scenes earlier in the book. Brad's writing is so good it's hard not to rate it higher. But in all honesty, the emotional resonance was lower in this one compared with the other books. Not completely absent, just lower.

    Overall, I really enjoyed this book. Although it did take some chapters for the suspense to build up, but it was worth the wait. The conflict was interesting, fun and mind blowing. If you are a reader who loves realistic fiction, along with a side of CIA operatives, terrorists and cities being destroyed, I would gladly recommend this book.

    So i'm biased; I am so hooked on Brad Thor's novels that I can't really be that objective about them any longer. All I can say is that this novel was so exceptionally imagined that it was like a sprint reading it. Just when I was wanting more at the end, Thor hits us with an unexpected jaw dropper of an ending. I can't wait to see what's next.
