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.
Retired, living in Montana, enjoying the good life. Favorites: CJ Box; Carl Hiassen and historical non-fiction—Modern European History
Exciting, (to a point); technology and government
Made the Russians look like they were human and made the Chinese look really, really stupid. In other words, we get to deploy our best toys against a completely outmatched army and demonized Chinese.
Describing combat prep and combat Clancy excelled.
No one could talk that slow.
No, WAY too long and obscure. I don't want to sit in a chair for nearly 4 days straight. I couldn't say awake long enough.
The narrator is kind of terrible because the sound mixing inst great. But I recommend listening to it on 1.25x speed which makes it much more enjoyable, the long pauses are noticeably shorter but its not too fast.
Very excessive use of profanity!!! NOT typical of previous Clancy books. Long repetitive explanations/descriptions of everything.
General interesting story, however way to "drawn out"
Yes we have listened to Michael Prichard and enjoy his narration.
Not sure but again, I would significantly reduce the long drawn out repetitive "explanations" of what people are thinking etc..............................
I generally like Tom Clancy. The epic scale of his books, however, requires a lot of background and setting up.
Michael Prichard does a fine job of making the various voices and accent. He keeps his expression mostly neutral, but that's fine. However, Michael makes frequent un-necesarry pauses, seemingly at random. For me, this was slowing the pace down too much, and also somwhat disorienting.
