Always listen to Audible during my commutes! Thanks for everything!
Tom Clancy needs to contact Lifelock, 'cause somebody stole his identity. I kept hoping the book would get better. Couldn't finish it.
F bombs do not a story make.
Mr Weber needs to remember you can't polish a turd.
Tom Clancy does it again. He has you hanging on the edge of your seat and then switches it up in the next chapter. He knows how to draw you through until it all comes to a head!
He is easy to listen to as he reads.
No, I want to savor his books.
Atrociously written and badly read. I refuse to believe Tom Clancy was any where near this publication in anything apart from name. I did listen to the end only because I refused to believe it could not get worse - I was wrong.
Seems like the author didn't feel he had enough of one story for a full book, so he mashed three stories together. There's the flashback story of Moore's training as a Navy SEAL and the mission that went bad, the story of trying to take down one of the world's biggest drug lords, and the story of the terrorists. If he had left one out, the book would have been better.
I have read every novel Tom Clancy has published and recently listened to "Dead or Alive." I enjoyed them all, even the shared authoring of "Dead or Alive" with Grant Blackwood (Lou Diamond Phillips read was very credible). I don't think Clancy even read "Against All Enemies," much less participated in the writing of the book. The read was monotone yet tolerable, but the prose was just downright juvenile. Plus, all the characters in "Enemies" are new, so there wasn't even any nostalgia to fall back on. I managed to listen for thirty minutes, but that was it. I'm glad I bought it on sale - it's certainly not worth a credit!
I enjoyed the first chapter or two, but the story has got fuzzy and I'm not struggling with it. There is more enjoyable stories to listen to. Maybe the print version is better for this book. However, I do not feel like buying it.
I have listened to almost every Tom Clancy book he has written and enjoyed them all, that is until this one. The story was not written by Tom Clancy, it could not have been. It rambled, no plot to speak of, pathetic characters, ... The reader did the best he could. I wonder if Peter Telep wrote this book and Clancy put his name first. I won't be listening to another Clancy book anytime soon.

So real it is scary. The probability of this story becoming reality is chilling. It makes such sense. We have everything to be afraid of. There are so many enemies to the US, drug cartels, terrorist and God forbid they join forces in unexpected ways.
The suspense and eary resemblence to todays world.
The killing of the children and wives of the cartel lords. There was real love for their family but the money and power cost their families lives.
You cannot go wrong in reading a Tom Clancy book.
The book was full of the Tom Clancy distracting details of every little weapon, etc that keeps the reader from focusing on the story being told.

The book spends too much time on the hero's personal "crisis". Of course it has to do with a botched mission and a friend dies (been there, read that, not new). It intrudes in the story and it doesn't make the hero more human. Most of the plot is predictable and typical Clancy. The geewiz gadgetry, colapsed time and forced action. I prefer his earlier works. Jack Ryan was more believable and the stories more isdightfull. Reader sounds more like a lecturer, robotic and unemotional. Makes the parts that (I assume) are supposed to create sympathy sound more like reading a soap advertisement from a newspaper.
