More story less politics
the fact that the book was a thinly veiled political rant
No, I thought his acting career added a lot to his audio book and I would like to listen to him again.
the many political mono-logs
I really liked the old Tom Clancy he can tell an amazing story but I'm very disappointed that he got so caught up in today's heated political climate. If I wanted to read a book from a political hack there are about six new ones released every month and I'm about as likely to buy one of those as I am another Tom Clancy book I'm sorry to say.
By the most intriguing listen of the lot. Can't wait for the next chapter in the Saga
Jack jnr coming of age
He seems to own this range
The end. Seems like it sets up a new direction.
FAST MOVING PLOT
He brings it to life
I was on the edge of my car seat...
I only wish Greaney word write another Grey Man book. He is VERY entertaining. If you like Silva, Thor, etc, you will like Greaney
I have been a Clancy fan since the beginning and I reccomend that's where you start. I though this was a good book but it's not the place to start reading/listening to Him.
While the book stands on its own and the ending is just a precursor to the next book, if you you really want to immerse yourself in to a cast of characters, an actual world , then there are 13 books before this one. Yes it's almost 400 hours but it stands up there with other long series, like Stephen King's "The Dark Tower" or Patrick O'Brians "Aubrey/Matchurin - Master and Commander".
So go ahead and read this one, but do yourself a favor and start with " Without Remorse" first. You won't regret it.
For what it's worth the order that Audible lists these books is in published order and not the true sequential order of the series. Just look up the Jack Ryan books on Wikipedia and it list the correct order.
I'm a marine and enjoyed the tech side of the story and I thought that the narration was great.
This was my first by Lou Diamond Phillips, but it will not be my last.
I almost didn't buy this one since I wasn't too satisfied with Dead or Alive. But with a different author in play I gave it a shot and enjoyed the story. It'll keep me coming back to the next one although I'll miss the characters I grew up with as the approach getting put out to pasture.
Yes. I love the mix of action and relationships that makes up a Tom Clancy book.
The relationships among the core team.
LDP is great! I listened while driving, and it made a long trip seem not so long. I could differentiate between the characters, but the change in accents was believable.
I held my breath while John Clark was being tortured!!!
A good solid adult action comic book. Light reading. If you like Clancy, you will like this.
The detail and description in this book are right on target. I can see where the characters are and what they are seeing. The plot is true to life and very contemporary. Full of action, suspense and I really get to know the characters and worry about what will happen in their situations. You really don't know who is going to live and who will die. Lou Diamond Phillips is a great actor and he doesn't disappoint in this narration. He reads clearly, nice voices that are not over the top, dramatic moments are dramatic, but he doesn't over-dramatize every other word, which is a pet-peeve of mine with narrators.
