Excellent book, good narrator, story is believable and flows naturally.
Interestingly, author recognizes the fact that threat to Western civilization is coming from Muslim extremism, no matter what country they are from.
One thing, which doesn???t mean much to most people around here, but I have to mention it:
I am a native Russian language speaker, and Narrator???s attempt (or lack thereof) of pronouncing Russian words and geographical locations to sound Russian is annoying beyond believe. I was so irritated with my efforts to recognize what he is trying to say, that I almost dropped the book altogether. How hard would it be to actually consult somebody? Hell, I would teach him myself???
A very gripping and intricate story from Tom. It was awesome!
LDP's voice characterizations add life and depth to the story.
Overall, another outstanding story and a great performance!
help- there must be a way to return to a specific chapter in audio books, if you are near the end and accidentally loose your place you have to go back to begiining skip from Chapter 1 to 73 one at a time to reach your last place read - not great
I am rarely seen without my headphones on and my iPod clipped on my waist. I love my books.
I think that this novel got too bogged down with technical details for me. The parts that involved Jack and the rest of the central characters, I found extremely interesting and gripping. I will continue to listen to the Jack Ryan series. Hopefully the next book will be as good as previous ones.
If Tom Clancy had actually written the story
One of the worst novels I have listened to
Very slow and monotone voice
Latin America was worn out years ago, just bury it for a while.
I have read and listened to many of Clancy's books,but will not be listening to anymore.
The story line is very intriguing and keeps you wondering what is going to happen next. Lou Diamond Phillips does an outstanding job with all the character voices and making them special.
John Clark - one tough dude.
LDP adds a dimension to the characters that I would not have factored in. His ability to bring the different voice and mannerism to each character really adds to the reading enjoyment.
Made me want to get the next book as soon as I could to keep the story going.
Listening to creative stories and well presented dialogue makes long driving trips a lot more pleasurable.
I have a science background and I am fascinated with epistemology.
This novel is as up-to-date as today's newspaper. It gets US clandestine services against Muslim extremist terrorists. The political climate in United States also replicates our current situation. I am not turned off by the attention to detail devoted, I love it. The plot weaving is superb! The audiobook was perfect for an intercontinental flight. I hope that I can find another one as good.
I enjoy reading (and listening to) Books! I have enjoyed fantasy and history the most, but more recently I have been brodening my horizon.
Loh does a great job of giving each character a personal touch on the voice, and it is easy to tell who he is reading as.
I got this book not realizing that it was the middle of the series. It does stand alone as well. I loved the characters and the way that Clancy puts things together is phenomenal. His knowledge of all things military is amazing and he gives life to the story in a way that others in this genre don't quite achieve.
I loved it!!
