As usual I enjoyed the story. The reader's voice and cadence were very relaxing and soothing. This was very beneficial as things have been very stressful of late.
The single detractor to this reading was that about once a chapter there was a random repetition of a phrase or sentence or two for no apparent reason. I don't know if this is in the actual recording or was a glitch in the streaming but it happened too frequently and was detracting to the overall story.
The story was very good. I have read most of the Jack Ryan and Jack Jr books. The one thing that bothered me was several times lines of the story was repeated. It wouldn't have been bad if it happened once or twice but it kept happening. It irritated me. I think it was the fault of the editing not the performer.
To me, this was pretty boring for Tom Clancy. His earlier work expertly combined action and suspense, however this was a lot of young characters pontificating to the point of boredom. It was like he was trying to find a voice for his next generation of protagonists, but never did.
I was very disappointed in The Teeth of the Tiger. An awful lot of time was spent rambling over insignificant details that made me lose interest. Furthermore, the narrator didn't help matters with his rather annoying delivery. After three attempts to listen to the book, I gave up! I'm sorry, but this was not a good listening experience!
The story was great, as was the performance. My copy had the irritating problem of repeating occasional paragraphs.
Great book. All the gritty details Clancy puts in are perfect background to do work while you're listening. There were some glitches in the recording however, some parts would repeat themselves, but nothing that would put you off too harshly.
I have enjoyed all of the Jack Ryan series, not knowing what to expect with this one, but it was good. The one element I didn't like was how quickly it ended. one of the drawbacks about listening to books as opposed to reading as you don't always know how far away the ending is. This one ended sooner than I wanted it too but I'm sure I'll just have to get the next one in the series.
