I enjoyed the look at what might have happened at the end of the Cold War. Some of the detail seems to be a bit much at time, but it did help me fall asleep at night.
It can be a bit slow at times but DANG! it was I just finished it! it was a good performance but the layout could have been a bit better.
I lost interest during the middle, but the beginning and the End I was Very enthralled! I was just floored on how real this scenario was! and something like this could happen!
the last 8 hours were gripping!
Grabbed you and didn't let go, but probably from the beginning of the snow storm in Washington and Denver to the
The Nuclear bomb going off at the Superbowl in Denver and then the Subsequent Flash battles in Berlin and the Pacific and the whole defusal of the situation.
no, at 38 hours it took me a month at work to listen to it. but I listened to the last 8 hours at home in one sitting!
very long book! 800 pages,
You should listen to:
The Hunt for Red October
Clear and Present Danger
and then The Sum of all fears!
it makes it SO MUCH BETTER!
as a stand alone book, this is still good, but the others add to it!
I read the Sum of All Fears when I was a senior in high school and to listen to it helps you more easily create the visualization needed to enjoy a good book such as this. It also instilled a small amount of fear as you see that this "fiction" could've very easily became fact. Bottom line- excellent book and good job by narrator.
Must listen with a lot of scientific content. Even my boys learned from this book. Heading for the next book.
was difficult to follow and stay focussed on
the build up on the nuclear device
it inspired me to get the next book in the series
challenging narrator to follow, I found myself drifting away from the book many times, couldn't stay engrossed like I have with previous books in the series
The ease of the download of the book.
At this time I can not point to anyone moment. But I will say the beginning of the book would be a moment of record.
The only concern is the announcement every so often saying that the book was broken up to make the down load quicker. Because the interruption is short. The announcement would not be needed.
Suggest removing the announcement or make it short.
Clancy's, Story telling, his ability to wind a reader up slowly almost to a breaking point.
Jack Ryan, though having many characters that support the cast but in the end, Ryan stands out above all.
This was my 1st read by Scott Brick. I thought he did an admirable job especially with the accents.
Not a chance, this 38 hour book took me quite awhile to finish.
I think this book could have been easily scaled down a bit without hurting the story, At times Clancy bogs the story down with details.. really I'm don't need to know all about neutrons and protons and how they react with one another for me to understand the power of a nuke.
My favorite tom Clancy book.
It was very interesting.
John Clark was my favorite
