No, story is to slow, to much detail of everything
No, for the most part you know what's next.
When Jack was left behind
This is one of the best books in the Jack Ryan series and why this one was never made into a movie is beyond belief. Never a dull moment a nd a perfect sequel to The Hunt for the Red October!
Overall it was a great book and a great performance. For some reason the audio seemed to have some low quality "patches" probably recorded to correct some mistake but quality in those sections is abysmal.
I will say the voice did a great job, overall it was a great listen despite the technical issues. Definitely a great choice!
A linehaul truck driver that spends most of his driving time at night. FM and talk radio can only take you so far at night, so I have filled my night miles with audiobooks - it is a great fit!
Just like real life, it's complicated, never black and white but multifaceted. Not just the US/USSR viewpoints but an Afgan viewpoint that keeps you wondering just how it was going to fit into the story.
Unlike the Hunt for Red October, the story does not tell you when it changes locations, so you have to stay on your toes to know if you are in Afganistan, Russia, USA, etc.
I started audiobooks with Vince Flynn and George Guidall and was accustomed to being able to pick out a voice without the narrator saying who the character was. Michael Prichard's performance was that of one reading a book to you and not a performance of the book for you.
From a veterans viewpoint, the location and burial of Cardinal was very touching.
Nelson Demille books.
They guy sounds like a college professor that doesn't care if he puts the listener to sleep or not. Doesn't fit the genre.
Couldn't get through it since the narration was so bad.
Retired aircraft systems engineer. Teach math (trig and calculus) part time at the local college. Love aircraft, reading, and horses. BS from New Mexico State, MS from Ohio State.
The only complaint I have for this book is the narrator. He needs to take lessons from Lou Diamond Phillips, the narrator for "Threat Vector". Michael Prichard read in a dull steady rhyme, monotone that would put me to sleep if I listened to anymore than three pages at a time.
I've never had an audible book that was so hard to get into the story. My husband and I listened to three hours before we both said, "enough!" I love Tom Clancy's other books and have read or listened to just about all of them. Sorry, this one just wasn't as good as all the others. Michael Prichard is wonderful for bedtime listening - if you are trying to get to sleep.
Prichard's performance was singsong with little difference between characters. I really tried to listen to the words, but the cadence was just too distracting.
This is the first book we have not finished, so we have no recommendations on scenes to cut or edit.
Of all the Tom Clancy books that we love, having one that just didn't interest us is not bad.
