We had a hard time following the story in the beginning. We felt the performance should have been better at queueing the switching of scenes.
We loved the story and look forward to more in this series.
If you're familiar with the series this is the backstory for Mr. Clark . It also includes history on many of the supporting characters in the Jack Ryan series. Very well done with lots of surprising cross history for many of the characters who have entered our lives through these books.
In the past I have loved reading Tom Clancy novels, however I was unable to get past the first hour in this book do to the horrid narration. Not only did the narrator fail to give different characters different voices/inflections, he failed to have any inflections or passion whatsoever. The exact same emotionless, dry and apathetic voice was used for a scene with two men repairing a boat and for a scene with a woman being tortured for information.
I would compare this recording to sand, dry, nasty and irritating.
I would definitely try his performance should I ever have the need to interrogate someone, five minutes of hearing this guy talk and they would say anything.
Disappointment, a perfectly good story ruined by a horrible narrator.
Don't use this narrator again.
Read book few years back and loved it
Narration completely monotone. Unlistenable IMO.
Love Audible and Audible books but don"t buy this one.
Good guy vs. bad guys, sustains some losses but wins in the end ... and gets the girl in the end.
I really tried to like this book. It would be a good listen with a different narrator. Wondering if anyone listens to these performances before going to market.
"Good book to start the Ryan Jr series. Very interesting character bio for John Clark, née John Kelly."

Long and detailed as one would expect. I enjoyed.
