What's Your Story: Nikhil


Please share some of your background:
I am a copper manufacturer from India. I am a graduate in Physics and second generation in the family business.

When did you start reading Mitch Rapp? 
I started reading Mitch Rapp in 2013. Back in college, I was a big Robert Ludlum fan. Later on I picked up the Covert-One series and loved it. After finishing the series, I wanted to read something similar and the internet search came up with Vince Flynn and was I blown away. Finished all of the books in 3 weeks. And now whenever I pick up any other author, I just can't read beyond 10-15 pages.

Which book is your favorite/why?
My favorite is Protect and Defend. Why? Because it won't allow you to put it down. I finished it in one go. It is brilliant.

Do you have a favorite character and why?  
My favorite is Thomas Stansfield. Stansfield’s cool persona and his famous words "If you need a pad & a pencil to remember, you're in the wrong business" are such a rarity today.

If you could be any character in Vince's novels, who would it be and why?
Thomas Stansfield. His use of grey matter is as thrilling as Mitch's courage.

Is there anything else you would like to share relating to Mitch Rapp, Vince or Kyle?
I would like to thank Vince for his beautiful writing style. It may be laughable but characters like Stansfield and Kennedy really teach you a lot. I certainly have learned to keep cool, not show emotions in board meetings, observe people and make mental notes (no pad & pencil).
