Love mystery, Favs-Clancy, King,
I haven't read (listened) to a Tom Clancy book in years because of his work straying from hie early days. I took a chance and was not disappointed! Great fast paced story. Great story telling by Lou Diamond Phillips. I hope to hear another book he reads. Classic Tom Clancy with great details of a crazy area in the world.
Another amazing book from Tom Clancy. After listening to this one, I'm wishing that the next one will be out soon -- I won't spoil it but there's a cliff-hanger at the end that's leaving me wisihing the next one was already out. Definately a must-"read"
too much information
too much repetition (are we morons with limited memory, or what?)
it was a major struggle to finish this
Charles Dickens without a doubt, you can keep this third rate action packed drivel.
Lou Diamond Philips was an excellent narrator- the only thing that kept me with this until the miserable and inevitable end
disappointment, boredom, annoyance
I took this book to apply some light relief after a couple of Jo Nesbo books. Guess what ? for me now it is DIckens and then a couple more Nesbo real thrillers!
2nd best Tom Clancy book I've listened too. Among all the audio books???? A Tom Clancy book is like watching an action movie, it doesn't make you any smarter, but it's enjoyable and a good diversion. Not to say I'm ashamed to be a fan, I'm not, I just can't compare his work to Mark Twain.
It was hard to stop listening. LDP is a great narrator, he makes the story come alive.
His accents, intonation, and style kept me interested. Some narrators can really be tedious and boring, but LDP seems enthusiastic and works hard to get the characters right. I will definitely listen to any Tom Clancy book he reads.
I really like the action in Tom Clancy's books, I'm not as big of a fan of the politics, but overall they're worth it and I will continue to listen especially with a great narrator.
A commercial shoot-em-up thiller with a body count in the thousands and an f-bomb count to match. The highlight was the narration by Lou Diamond Phillips, which was superb.
It will appeal to some people.
The narration was fabulous and on the whole the story was entertaining, with plenty of action sequences. However the plot line was a little bare and was fairly predictable. The characters got a little confusing in the middle and the ending seemed hastily thrown together compared to the earlier chapters.
Probably not, at least in the near future. I might listen later
Yes, I like Tom Clancy's books and this is the first time I have heard of Mark Greaney.
The presidential debates make it seem that one must be right wing to be a patriotic man of action. It was at though Sarah Palin was the author.
Keep to what has been successful in their past books. Action against and triumph over our common enemies, not right wing rhetoric.
Clear deep voice.
I stopped listening after the presidential debate, wishing that I had not purchased this book.
An old style Clancy novel with all the can't put it down /can't turn it off thrills... Great story, great pace and the good guys win! Reading performance excellent.
A better actor to narrate. Better develop characters. I can't understand narrator's words and he has no emotion in his speaking.
Never buy anything narrated by Lou Diamond Phillips.
Please give us a better sample of the narration. I've read most of Tom Clancy's books and this one just doesn't measure up at all.
Check out narrator's past performance and sound.
I wasted almost $20.00 for a book I will never finish. I feel cheated!
