I listen to books to be entertained... my favorite genre is a "Legal Thriller" I have actually been a member since 2001. 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!!
I would rate this book in my top 25. I would have rated it higher but I cringe every time I hear a book like this take God's name in vain when there is no reason to do so to make their point!
The plot continues as you finally get more of a background on some of the characters that was missing in the movies.
The plot in itself was the best part of the book. In this day where the world is getting smaller but we are still impacted by other countries this brought this to focus on how important are intelligence community is for our protection.
No, I listen as I drive and this keeps me on the edge of my seat as the miles pass behind me.
Once is enough.
The military speak that Clancy expresses is fantastic. The difficult to pronounce names that Philips breezes through was very well down.
This is my second with Phillips. The last one was also a Tom Clancy book. I can't wait for the next one.
Excellant story that keeps you interested in all the characters from the Jack Ryan series.
