With over 6 hours of listening into the book complete, I was still wondering what the plot was and where this story was going. I kept thinking I should continue to listen because so many people like this books so much; in the end I quite listening to this book and have been wondering why it is so popular ever since.
The characters seem dry and unexciting, the story feels worn and re-hashed. The narration was dull and drawn out. It is rare that I write a negative review about any book, as I am very careful in choosing what I read or listen to. In the end I can't recommend this book, but so many other people have that I am left thinking that maybe it's just not my style.
Unfortunately, the narration in this was so poor that I had to give up. Sounded like a cross between a speech impediment and a headcold
audio books are Theater of the Mind when done right. They lift words from a page written by an author and transport you into another world
As always with a Tom Clancy book it's his pure style and the way he can drive a story with great characters and suspenseful action. Plus Mr. Clark in any of Clancy's book as he is unlike any other type of the normal tough guy.
He always does a masterful job, wish he did debt of honor
I could not stop this book, I just wanted to listen to it all at once but i broke it down over a weeks time. It is an amazing book
any Tom Clancy book would wonderful to listen to as his style is so thought out. This book to me is one of his best. There is nothing like rainbow and nothing like Mr Clark
The narrator has one voice, one tone, and no sound effects. It was a major effort to remain conscious.
The quintessential opposite would be any of the Harry Potter book narrations.
Mark Thompson, Jim Dale, Gerard Doyle
A bit technical for me but Tom Clancy is very thorough. I like Lou Diamond narrating his books, this fellow was a bit too slow on the drawl for me. I am never disappointed with a Tom Clancy book.
Narrator could not hol;d my attention. Had to keep rewinding because I had drifted off. Neither the story or narrator or the story could keep my attention. I have listened to many Tom Clany audiobooks. This was a major disappointment. I like Tom Clancy because of the length of his audiobooks. Would not recommend this to anyone.
Not the best, but a good listen. Guy stuff. Guns, bad guys, good guys winning - typical man cave stuff.
The ending. Classic "you asked for it, you got it"
The end. I wont ruin it for you, but it was just the perfect ending.
Again, rather long to do that, but it was good to keep listening over a couple of days.
Unless the narrator tells who just spoke you almost have no idea. It is as if someone who does not understand the language but can read the words is reading them. I will never purchase another book that has him as a narrator. It is a drugery to finish the book.
Where did they find this reader? He sounds like a Edward R. Murrow wannabe. No more Michael Prichard for me.
I picked this book because of the Author and secondly for the length. As Tom Clancy does, his research is unbelievably well done. But at times the story seem lack at times.
The story line was great, a lot of twists and turns.
At the different acsents are tough, but did a good job.
Yes, for sure. Jason Statham or/and Daniel Craig
Tom clancy always produces excellent quality.
