Avid reader with no time to read!
I couldn't put it down - can't wait to listen to the next one!
Mr. Pritchard mispronounced several words but overall it was good.
I remember reading this when I was maybe 11 or 12. Right before 9/11.
Listening to it years later, with some hindsight and more appreciation for Clancy's writing style it's an impressive novel. Part techno-thriller, part House of Cards, part James Bond. Highly engaging, entertaining and accessible despite the subject matter.
Narration is very good. Not a show stealer but consistent and listenable.
Doubtful. I'm going to sound a little Prichard does a really poor job with this story. He is horribly monotone and there's little to no change in character voices. I am really sorry he got the job on so many of these Clancy stories. I had to use 1.5-2x speed to make him tolerable.
I had bought two books Prichard read (This and Rainbow Six) before starting this one (Executive orders), so I already have bought one of his other performances. I am hoping another reader does more Clancy as I want more of his books but NOT by Prichard.
It's probably clear by now my reaction was severe disappointment with the narrator.
I doubt Random House is listening, but on the off chance they are...
Please guys, no more Prichard.
I started reading the story and liked it but when I switched to the audiobook I loved it. The voices are all perfect for each character and it was better than my imagination which is why it was better for me with the audio. It's great that there was more than one artist performing. One of my favorite audiobooks. And it was a really enjoyable and believable story - and fun - not gory. Highly recommended.
also says love going back to my old favorite books, listening while working around the house is great.
I enjoyed it, but I've read the book many times already and It is one of my favorites. BUT....... Please see my Additional comments
J. Charles, Scott Brick,
NO, too many plot lines that go into this book that make it enjoyable for me. Most of them would be cut so I wouldn't go see it.
I've read this book many times and I love reading it over and over again, so I bought the audiobook so I could listen to it in the car. Unfortunately the Narrator is very bad, he's mono-tone, and is speaking like he's just reading it for the first time since he puts the emphasis in the wrong places in each sentence while he's reading.
If you like Tom Clancy you'll like this book story wise, just be prepared to deal with the bad narration. It's not bad enough to make ME want to stop but it might be for some people.
Yes - lot of sub-plots that come together well in the last section
When Jack started to pull things together after the initial chaos
Main reaction was one of wishing I had bought the abridged version - this was very detailed, obviously had a great deal of research, but some of the detail got in the way of the story line.
over 50 hours for one book was a lot - it took a long time to finish it - I wish I had bought the abridged version.
