Clancy does a better job when he writes the book rather than using Greaney. Phillips is a good reader.
I prefer real ending instead of lead-ins to the next book.
Crisp, pleasant, and understandable.
It was a good yarn and worth the time.
Mark Greaney writes fast paced books that are difficult to put down. If I had one criticism it would be that he goes into a lot of detail about the guns that are used by the main characters. It's clear to me that Mark like firearms. I don't think the long descriptions of the bullets, grains of powder, etc add anything to the story. On the other hand they don't detract from it either. Now he just needs to produce books faster than I can consume them. Which means he needs to issue about 150 books a years! WOOHOO I'm good with that!
yes. it is a interesting story. A little heavy on the Middle East stigma based on current events.
He has good diction.
This was a short Clancy Novel. Waiting for more stories of the young Mr. Clarke.
I am a Clancy addict, I freely admit. This book was so action packed and fast paced I could not stop listening. I listened to it for 10 hours at work and the 15 minute trip home. Some of Clancy's book get so detailed they kind of bog you down with information. There is some of that here but overall I think the duo of Greaney and Clancy is excellent. If you enjoy Clancy or Greaney you can't go wrong with this book. The narration by Phillips is excellent as well.
Lou Diamond Phillips is the very best narrator I have heard - he has a mastery of accents and language. He is the audible book!
No. Too partisan.
Tom Clancy has a great page turner style. If your political views are anyting other than far right, some of the passages may make your neck hairs bristle.
It's a great book that keeps you entertained.
Most of Clancy's other books. Especially his newer books.
The final firefight in Soviet Russia.
Clancy does a great job of not only wrapping up some story lines and he leaves a few open for the next Jack Ryan book. Taking the direction of developing Jack Ryan Jr. is turning into a good one.
The story was fast paced and suspenseful. Lou Diamond Phillips is one of the best narrators ever. He performs the accents wonderfully. Loved the book
Love the story line for both Jack Ryan Sr and Jr. When does the next one come out?!?!? Can't wait
Too long gone, two wrongs right, to a brighter day and Tupelo night . . .
But, a great narrator can make a terrific story unforgettable.
That is what Lou Diamond Phillips does for Locked On. Phillips is fabulous!
It would be my greatest wish fulfilled to have Phillips re-narrate all of the Tom Clancy classics. I would buy (or re-buy) every one.
Locked On is one of my top-three favorite Clancy novels. It sets up a smooth transition from the old-Clancy characters to the 2nd-generation characters. Within this story, ALL the old characters are present and involved with the new characters. Nicely done.
The story is first-rate. The depth of plot, full-bodied characters, and pacing are all what you'd expect from Clancy. This is tight, high-action, intrigue at its best.
Clancy's hallmark is intelligent plotting and writing. It's difficult, even painful, to read many of the other authors in this genre after having read so much Clancy.
One of the best Tom Clancy's I've read.
Very well narrated.
I wish I could have stayed up all night
