I can't believe I had missed this one. I admit, I almost gave up on it too early because of the narration. But I decided that Clancy had never disappointed before and eventually I mellowed toward a voice that is, well, unspectacular. But to the point, this story was about as good as I have listened to. I was looking for reasons to listen to more. Clancy strung us along just enough to see a general idea of what MIGHT happen but thirsting for details. Again, Clancy was a masterful weaver of tales...he is and will be, sorely missed. Greaney..you have your work cut out for you my friend!
Amazing story. My favorite Clancy by far.
Mr. Clark is the man!
Anyone who can pronounce each word. It was if like he stepped up to the mic with no practice, no dry run, no zest for the story etc. Note to narrarator: If you are unsure of how to properly pronounce a word..don't just guess!
The dignity and strong will of the prisoners in Viet Nam.
Narration is such a subjective thing. I think that with a little more enthusiasm and preparation, the narration could have been much better. A few times, I actually thought about quitting this book because of the monotone, lackluster performance.
A different narrator is essential. Michael Pritchard ruins one of my favorite print authors.
I loved this book. I am not one to go for books this long and this was the first Clancy book I've ever read. What a fantastic book, though! Aside from the ten zillion characters, this book had me so drawn in and engulfed by the plot, I hated to put it down. If you like a book with substance, science, intrigue, suspense, and a phenomenal story line, this is a great place to start. I can't wait to read another one of his books!
I bought the full length version of this audio book and am so glad I did. It had been years since I last read it, and the quality of this recording made it like I was reading the book for the first time. I will look for other books read by Michael Prichard.
