i thought Rainbow 6 had a good story, but damn. Id listen to this again and again but i think once is enough... its so well done, that i personally dont think i could forget the events in this book., spoilers aside i live in denver LOL, absolutely captivating.
This book is great, but the narrator needs help. There is very little difference in character voices and the inner monologue of all the characters is too dry and absolutely no inflection. I had to stop listening at chapter 3. I hope there is a Michael Prichard recording out there. Listen to the sample and avoid my mistake.
Stall a technologically, socially, and politically significant page-turner after 15 years. Hard to put this down once started. Great, believable story. It will keep you thinking long after you've read it.
I am spoiled for life by having listened to Frank Muller read The Hunt for Red October.
But, Scott Brick does a excellent job nonetheless.

It would have been far better had the narrator been able to develop a different accent/voice for the separate characters. As it was while overall he reads well, the different national accents are all the same. Scott had some difficulty with developing a realistic feminine voice for the few female characters in this work. One could at times miss the change to one of them.
Awesome story. Six or eight sub plots. Strong protagonist with honor and scruples facing a sea of attackers and natural antagonists. Non-pornographic love scenes. Nuclear bombs. There is just so much.
This book builds slowly (not in a bad way). Details are revealed, and over time a picture comes into place. You feel as though you are be read into a Code Word level briefing of the events of the story. This story never gets bogged down by details or minutia, despite being one of (if not the) longest of Clancy's novels. I wish there were 10 more books like this one in the series.
Hahahaha! no one can stay awake long enough! :-)
