I really like the reboot of the Jack Ryan series that started with the Teeth of the Tiger. Jack Ryan, Jr. and the Campus make a much more modern plot line than the old Cold War stuff. I liked that stuff back in the 80s and 90s, but it's dated now.
Clancy may not have his fingers on the keyboard writing these new ones, but the characters are consistent with the old days.
Lou Diamond Phillips is a great narrator! Oddly, he sounds like the narrator in my head when I read books . . . Can't explain that one. He's never been my favorite actor, but he is perfect in this role! He really brings out the characters.
The whole story was great. I felt engaged the entire time. The pace of the story was definitely my favorite part. It takes off like an olympic sprinter, and only slows down to give some necessary back-story for the characters, then off to the races again.
Again, it was the pace.
Jack Clark. Without question. I will be listening to Without Remorse next, just so I can find out how this espionage legend got his start.
I was livid when the
I was surprised by how well Lou Diamond Phillips did as a narrator. His range is incredible. Even when make slight adjustments to accents while portraying 4-5 different men of the same ethnicity.
I liked the way Clancy portrayed the President and his advisers. It was clearly a jab at President Obama and his disdain for the military.
No, but it was interesting.
Better than expected
No, but I'd rent it.
Another fast paced, well written foray into the parallel universe of Jack Ryan. This time focusing on the clandestine, all "black" team established by the man himself, the familiar characters race to stop a Bin Laden-type terror mastermind. Jack Ryan also throws his hat back in the ring, and effectively back into the series as the protagonist.
What did I like best ? Good story line and many strong characters. What did I like least? I am a big fan of the previous book
All of the intense action scenes ..... There were many
Ridding the fence on this one.
I wish they would have used Stephen Lang who narrated the previous book if not to just add a consistency to how the listener pictures the characters.
entertaining, timely, fun
Haven't listened to a Clancy book in a while, but it wasn't too far off from his other works.
Did a great job. Always a bit hesitant when actors read books, but Lou did a great job.
i love that lou diamond is now narrating these books i have this on and locked on and lou does such a great job with the characters that clancy writes about.
After 8+ hours, I still didn't have a feeling for the characters or the story. Clancey gave me no reason to care about any of them.
I have read the book, and wanted to see listen to it a while later! I thought the book was great in audio form! I have listened to the next book "Locke On' already!!
Tom Clancy is a wonderful story teller, and this story does not disappoint. This story is complicated with individual groups of people and parts that come together in suspenseful scenes and an even more suspenseful ending. Lou Diamond Phillips does an amazing job at reading this story. Each of the characters has it's own voice, with accents that fit the characters so well. I loved his reading of the story.
