Enjoyed this as I do enjoy any Tom Clancy work. This one left me a bit saddened, certainly admirable work, however.
I did not read the print version, hence the reason I chose audio.
Roarke was my favorite character. His character and committment were commendable.
Steven Weber was perfect. I felt like i was at the movies, listening to his performance made this experience most enjoyable. Great choice.
Navy Seals - Family, Honor and Committment
This is a very good book: a novelization of the movie. It leads you through the exciting and close paced world of US Special Operations Forces. As I was reading, I wondered where some of this material originated. You can't make this up. I want to see the movie.
I am an over the road driver with a lot of drive time. So tend to enjoy longer unabridged versions of books. I also like history and spy or western novels as well.
I wouldn't know I Drive a truck for a living so all of my books are on audio.
yes I would even though I thought this one was sort of rushed. I prefer more story detail and build up in a action story.
I really wanted to love this book. I went into it with very high hope's but I have to admit this one for me fell a little short. I will say this though I'm glad I listened to it before seeing the movie it helped to understand the story line of a very abridged version of the story the film used.
Misled. Thought it was a Clancy series. Wished foe something different from the movie.
Lover of life and lover of books! I read/listen to a wide range (many) but my favorite non fiction are self-help and autobiographies.
I highly recommend this book if you have any interest in what takes place 'behind' the scenes to protect the world from Terrorists. The story unfolds slowly but builds speed ending with emotion and impact.
Great story about the brotherhood of SEALS.
Wonderful! Awesome! Entertaining!
What I really liked most was the attention to detail of the characters. The author took you into the personal lives and minds of the main characters. The book was not just mindless violence and action. You got to learn about these people, how they thought, and a little about their personal lives. This book let you see the people behind the trident.
Roarke Engel was my favorite character. The book focused around him and Dave Nolan.
I was amazed by how quickly the life of Christo, a bad guy, changed. He went from having great wealth and power to losing it all in a matter of moments. He never saw it coming. And, it was the result of one bad decision, supporting his terrorist friend.
The naration by Steven Weber is superb! He really makes the book come alive. This audiobook is extremely well written and narated. It is a rollercoaster ride which keeps the reader's attention from beginning to end. I highly recommend it!
I have already listened to it twice and will listen again to pick up the small points.
I am a veteran Army officer so it was interesting the difference between my service and where the troops are today.
He kept the action moving
I had seen the movie and this moved me to read the book. I enjoyed the book as much as the movie. A good read.
