I liked the story but there was just too much detail that wasn't needed. The performance was a little choppy in places as well. All in all though the story was good and unique.
Say something about yourself!
Loved it. Very captivating, didn't want to stop listening till the end. An excellent plot.
Great book written before 911. A good insight not only into the SOF world but into the general military mindset. If nothing else shows you whats happens when you poke a bear with a stick and there are no bars between you and he.
Great characters and lots of action. This book throws you right into the action in the first chapter. It's fun to see characters from previous books come back in a somewhat different context, and to see the character grow and mature as they age.
It's a classic story of teamwork and being great at what you do. In a time when so many people are looking to slide by with the littlest effort possible, it's refreshing to be reminded that there are those that strive for near perfection in all that they do. The Rainbow team illustrated this nicely. It's also nice to start looking at terrorism and international crime for what it is, terrorism. As compared to one country against another.
Prichard is great. He tells the story well without getting in the way. In a book like this it's tempting to try and perform all the multi-national accents. He did not, and I think it came off perfectly.
There's a new Sheriff in town.
Great book overall. I felt the ending was a little abrupt, but maybe that's how we feel when any good story ends. Rainbow Six has been one of my favorites for a ling time and I keep coming back to it.
It takes less concentration to listen rather than to read.
John Clark. I have followed all of his accomplishments since his SEAL days in Viet Nam Through his civilian time before recruitment into the CIA and on.
How can I compare him with my two top narrators, Alexander Scourby and James Earl Jones.
I have read the book at least twice, how could I have any extreme reactions??
I kind of like these Audio Books. I think I will be getting more.
... initial success or total failure...
Michael has none of the presentation quality of Lou Diamond Phillips or Scott Brick. Monotone, broken and hard on the ears. It took half the book to tolerate him.
Story is great, as always, but this narrator has very little differentiation between character voices and accents so at some points you need to give complete attention in order to follow the story.
Lou diamond Phillips is certainly much better in this aspect.
Those of Philistine Thought will fail to . . .
Worst reading ever. Destroyed the book. I love the author just v the way this guy read it hurt.
