This book is a nice peek into the background of the mysterious John Clark who features prominently in much of the later parts of the series. It also gives some backstory to other characters in the series. While it doesn't carry the Jack Ryan series forward in particular, it does add some depth to the series. There are a few contrivances in the book that I found a bit strained as a way to add extra connections between characters.
Regardless, this is definitely worth a listen. Michael Prichard is not my favorite narrator, but he does an adequate job in the telling.
I've listened to this book 3 times already! I went back to ensure I didn't miss anything, then again just for the enjoyment.
Clark of course!
Prichard was okay, but I did have to get use to his style.
the narrator(or is it the director or lack of one)
you couldnt tell when he switched subjects, characters or years
Rescue, Protect, Love
His isolation pierced by an act of kindness, he takes care of her, then cares for her, then falls in love. When she is killed, his revenge is not really revenge, and is so subtle even the police are hard-pressed to figure out what is really going on: he is cleaning up the streets using the only way he knows to solve a problem.
Prichard's voice is evocative, and brings the characters to life.
The day the doctor demanded that Kelly be treated for his STD without the nurses telling him that he has it.
Without Remorse illustrates that prostitution is not a "victimless crime." It is a wake-up call to our society on the workings of the dark world of drugs and prostitution. Tom Clancy brilliantly wrote a story that will touch, break, then heal your heart.
red storm rising
good story and suspence
Tom Clancys best book. you get to know what makes Clark tick
No for Michael Prichard yes to Tom Clancy. I love the book Without Remorse and have read it many times. Narrator ruined it for me.
Did not finish book narration was horrible
You will find a lot of complaints in the reviews about the narrator, ignore them and get this audio book. The narration is not great, but good enough. I did not have any problems following the story or spotting the scene shifts.
It is a brilliant story, really developing the main character into what he is in the other Tom Clancy books. It also cleverly explores several moral issues with compassion and insight.
I highly recommend this book.
Great action, strong characters, feel-good justice at times and cringing horror at other times.
If there is an alternative version narrated by someone else available, no.
A master in the making
How John Kelly was continually knocked down by life's circumstances and some how was able to pull himself up and keep going.
It was a roller coaster ride from beginning to end.
When Michael reads it changes from just words on a page to relating the story as the author intended the listener to experience.
I can't think of anything at this time.
I'm just a Tom Clancy and Michael Prichard fan.
Never, the narrator was horrible. I just wanted to drive my truck off the road and make it stop. Just read this book and you'll be better off for it.
Michael Prichard needs to quit reading outloud.
Yes, until the narattor opened his mouth and began to read.
Don't get this in an auddible format with Michael Prichard reading.
I have read the Jack Ryan books in hard cover when they were first released and loved them.Now that they are available in unabridged format, i am back for more. But, M. Prichard and the guy doing 'Debt of Honor" comon, doesn't Mr. Clancy care about the product being produced.I just finished 'Sum of All Fears" which was read by Scott Brick.Great Novel and Suberb Narrator.There is a reason why Nelson Demille only has Scott Brick read his stories.
