This story was much better than his last and reminded me of the old Tom Clancy.
Lou Diamond Phillips still does a good job at narrating.
The last part suggests another edition coming soon.
Lou Diamond Phillips is fantastic, what a fabulous voice. Tom Clancy's characters are great, another great book, from a great writer. I can hardly wait for the next in this series, the ending leaves you wanting more.
No, I will not read another book by Tom Clancy as long as he continues his right wing rant.. It is just Fox News fodder
He should kept his nonsensical political views out of the story
Lou's performance is great.. But the story sucks
Tom Clancy believes Muslims are naturally terrorists, the environment is there to exploit, big oil should not be regulated or taxed. If those are your beliefs you may like his books. Tom Clancy has become a meaningless author. He has bloated his books with his right wing neocon politics. Save your money for intelligent authors.
EXCELLANT READ ! One of the top
Most of the time, however during some of the longer narratives re political positions was a little dull.
Yes, the personal interactions between father (Sr.) and son (Jr.) when father knew son was in a life threatening situtation.
Only hope is that Clancey has another in the works and that it will be out soon. This is a CAN NOT PUT DOWN BOOK!!!!!!!
This is the best book I have heard this year. I listen to app 5 books a week. This book is a great read. Do not let the political comments influence your decision. If you like this type of book, you will like this book.
This story started at a quick pace and picked up from there.
If you are serious fan of Fox News, maybe. And if you're genuinely convinced that there's a terrorist behind every rock and anyone who doesn't agree with you is an anti-American potential terrorist, you'll love it.
How about believable characters? A real plot wouldn't have hurt either.
The narrator was fine. The book was almost a parody of Clancy's earlier efforts. Is Tom Clancy actually writing the books at all any more?
I wouldn't have published it. If it were a different author, it probably wouldn't have sold.
This is the third disappointment in a row from an author who used to write great thrillers. I never agreed with his politics, but the books were good. Now, the characters are all stereotypes and the plots are simplistic and silly. The great wealth of detail and careful crafting of characters and plots that made his book outstanding are just gone. They've been gone for a while, but I kept hoping that they'd show up again. I have hoped and faithfully bought the books ... but now, I think it's over for me. I'm going to give up on this author. I seriously doubt Clancy is writing the books himself anymore. They don't sound like his writing. I don't even recognize the characters: they have the same names, but they don't act like they did. Sad.
Guitarist with The Prudes
This starts out OK but soon devolves into a thinly veiled republican neoconservative propaganda tale. Military = Good, privatized military = Better. Republican = good, Democrats and liberals = bad, ugly, fat & traitors.
I am no hippie terrorist lover, I actually used to work in WTC 2 in 2001 but this simplistic drivel is way below Tom and I hope Mark Greaney runs a mile from future projects, I really liked his past book.
I can see why thin-skinned liberals would be offended by this strong story-line. I don't read fiction for political reasons, but this one certainly rings clear for any true American. Our enemies are everywhere and this book clearly reflects the reality of current day politics and beliefs. Tom does an excellent job as ever showing the true cost of freedom. Those who feel offended after hearing this book can certainly move away to another country and try to speak their opinions there (although there is little tolerance for freedom of speech in other countries. Good luck though.).
Clancy used to be a very good writer. Now he just spouts Rush Limbaugh like trash talk. Every arab is out to get the U.S., and every liberal is undermining the country. This is the last Clancy book I'll ever buy. Don't waste your money or your time.
