The presidential debates make it seem that one must be right wing to be a patriotic man of action. It was at though Sarah Palin was the author.
Keep to what has been successful in their past books. Action against and triumph over our common enemies, not right wing rhetoric.
Clear deep voice.
I stopped listening after the presidential debate, wishing that I had not purchased this book.
An old style Clancy novel with all the can't put it down /can't turn it off thrills... Great story, great pace and the good guys win! Reading performance excellent.
A better actor to narrate. Better develop characters. I can't understand narrator's words and he has no emotion in his speaking.
Never buy anything narrated by Lou Diamond Phillips.
Please give us a better sample of the narration. I've read most of Tom Clancy's books and this one just doesn't measure up at all.
Check out narrator's past performance and sound.
I wasted almost $20.00 for a book I will never finish. I feel cheated!
I smile at books more than I smile at people. Unknown
I'm not sure. There are parts of the book that I enjoyed and parts that I didn't. But I spent too much time trying to remember the characters and how they fit into the plot. It was very frustrating.
Streamline the plot just a bit more. I'm not saying to make it predictable and ordinary, but when readers have to struggle to keep up with too many twists and turns it becomes a chore to finish the book.
The action scene at the hotel where Jack Ryan, Jr. is on one of his first real missions. He is tasked with driving the getaway car and guarding the exit of the hotel his team is about to inflltrate to catch a guy involved in some bad business. While his team is getting in place for thier take-down, Jack notices some curious activity going on at the next hotel. Trusting his instincts, he leaves his post for a minute to follow five shady-looking guys until he's able to reognize one of them as a terrorist. He quickly relays this info to his team and they immediately recognize a trap. At the last minute they have to change plans in order to save a group of unarmed surveillance guys that are unaware that they are about to be ambushed by the five guys that Jack Jr. identified.
This was the second audio book i have purcahsed and was not disspointed. I listened to it on my walk to work and in the car ride home. I pottered around the house and was able to do chores and make dinner while listening. A great way to tune out. Love it!
Names and acronyms were sometimes hard to reference as you cannot go back and recheck them like you would in a book, but if you have read the books you shouldn't have much trouble. I have missed a few in the series and still found it enjoyable.
Lots of characters to get to know, very descriptive, easy to picture and action packed.
I didn't recognise his voice at all, but he was very good, especially with the multitude of characters he had to keep up with.
Yes I finished the whole book in about three days...a mighty feet considering its approx 17 hrs long.
Nearly 1200 titles.
Ninety percent of the book is A+. Solid Clancy. At the end, the end he pulls Wolfe "Man in Full" style plot twist. What?! Other than that... Great book.
This was a great book to listen to. It reminded me of Tom Clancy's earlier books. It is well written and you don't want to turn it off.
The Jack Ryan series has be out there so long, I was curious to see how this book would evolve the characters, especially Jack Jr. It was well worth the credit. LDP does a good job narrating and giving the book additional life.
The fast pace, the characters
Very engaging, easy to relate to characters, fast paced, keeps you guessing.
no it needed to be broken up
Lives up to the Clancy tradition. This book was easy to listen to and not need a flow chart of characters to keep track of like his earlier books. Phillips was able to execute the foreign names and places flawlessly like having lived there. Overall a captivating book that you hated to see the fast paced end come to and as usual leaves you anxiously waiting for the next one.
