Clancy writes a great story but this one is so full of foul language and terms like Jap, Chink, etc. that I'm finding it difficult to overlook the ugliness and stay focused on the plot. Disappointed. Even though the plot is good I'm only giving it 3 stars.
An unashamed Audiophile who has his own studio and business called iZENEARS which brings Australian travel and history to life for locals and visitor's alike.
Audible would do well to let us all know when you select a book if there are ones that you should have heard first. I got the series out of order which was confusing. That being said, a great book and a long listen
Not my favorite Tom Clancy by a mile. Now I know why this was somewhat obscure. Without giving away a major story theme - too much time was spent on that point. Yes, the antagonist country is evil because of this practice but I didn't pick the book to be lectured on the subject.
One of the better books in the Jack Ryan series. Clancy tended to be all over the map in most of the books, but then I buy the unabridged. Most of the book takes place in Russia. Clancy seems to have had a liking of Russia and Russian names.
There was some suspense, but I wouldn't say I was on the edge of my seat. I did stay up later than I should have during some parts.
Probably when the old Russian sniper kills the Chinese general.
The taking of Russia.
this was a seriously long book. But has enough nail-biters and suspense to make it all fly by fast. Wish it could continue. So many characters and situations unresolved.
