This is the title that put Tom Clancy in the unenviable position as the Guest of Honor for a Secret Service confab on September 12, 2001.
The events as he laid out are nothing like our reality, and so it doesn't hold quite the same emotional power.
The narrator is the weakness here as others have reviewed, however I found that setting the playback speed to 1.25x clears most of the monotone and provides useful depth of voice.
This was a very intriguing story. Several new movies and TV shows seem to have taken inspiration from it.
I didn't care for the narrator, I had to speed up the program to deal with the slow speaking style.
Great story as all Tom Clancy books are but the voice reading this book was terrible in my opinion! Sounds like they used a computer generated narrator! Very annoying and hard to listen to.
This is my favorite book in the series. This story really grabs this 80's army brat. I have listened to this story at least 3 times and when I don't have a new book this is is my drive home go to. The narrator's voice gives this book the correct weight. You won't regret the 25 + hours this book takes.
Enjoyed the story as usual. Always enjoy Clancy's writing. However this is the first audio book in the series, that I felt the reading was not as good. The performer handle all duties well , but his voice made most characters sound like pompous asses.........just my opinion........
Story was great, learned a lot as usual. Narrator was not good, enjoyed prior voice narrations. ARARAT OR left no time as he transitioned from venue to another, this led to confusion. Paragraphs that take you from one location and set of characters should be preceeded with a small pause, he did not. That is my only complaint, Clancey really got into the minds of the societies and characters.
Like all books by Clancy, the story and pacing is great, sadly the narrator of Debt of Honor has very little emotion, and drags on and on. it's still worth picking up and about 2/3 the way threw he seems to pick up and find a little more life but it was hard to get into McDonal's performance
John MacDonald was a poor choice for this book. I had a hard time telling who was speaking, except for his awful boston accent for the few characters which was so over the top it was hard to listen to. Everyone else sounded the same that i had to go back often to catch it all.
