one of Clancy's top stories, well spoken.
longer than I remember, and I hate to broach this possibility, but perhaps a few of the repetitive parts (ground troops' life in a patrol base, legal side talks by lawyers and FBI types, could have been cut down a little bit. but still excellent
The story is completely Clancy, which for me is high praise. Pritchard remains an imperfect narrator, but his performance here is leaps and bounds better than in Without Remorse. If his reading isn't an asset, neither is it a liability. If you like Clancy, this audiobook is worth your credit.
the book was great, but at times the voice would change pitch as if it was cut then a different recording was pit in place. the voice drops were pretty dramatic at times.
MR. TOM CLANCY DOES IT AGAIN, ANOTHER HIT. VERY BELIEVABLE .IT'S OBVIOUS HE RESEARCHES WELL
Tom Clancy delves deeply into the backstories of his characters in this book. Unlike "Red Rabbit", the history and thought processes actually lend more credibility to the characters than the author in respect to their current situation.
The reader/listener can't help but to develop feelings for each character (whether positive or negative) and will easily become concerned about their fate.
Michael Prichard had a negative review in his previous recording about John Clark for being too monotone (among other complaints). I feel that he has redeemed himself in this reading as he was simply stupendous with this attempt.
One of the best, but I only buy books that I'm sure I will like.
Maybe Without Remorse. Clark has a big role and there is a lot of violence which I like.
Did a fair job at changing his voice for the different characters. I've heard better, but there were a lot of characters.
Not possible as it was a very long book, but I did spend extra time listening. I always buy the unabridged version, and Clancy's works are wordy. I imagine him sitting on his porch talking into a dictation machine. He does a good job of getting technical information, especially on submarines. His final works, which were co-authored, were more succinct.
"Reading" all the Tom Clancy novels that my father always recommended, and C&PD did not disappoint. I remembered the movie pretty well (in hindsight they did a HORRIBLE job casting the roles for the movie) but this was absolutely worth the time to go through the full novel.
