Exciting, Interesting, fast-paced. ( They ask for three words yet tell me I have to have a minimum of 15 words?)
All of the other Clancy books.
As I may have stated in previous reviews, I am amazed at his talent. I never really liked his acting, but his storytelling is top notch.
China is at it again!
Just discovered The Campus and Jack Jr and have been devouring the series. Threat Vector was outstanding and primed me to go directly into the next "installment."
Yes just because it is Tom Clancy and you can never go wrong with a Clancy novel.
Jack Ryan Junior is my favourite character as he is a brilliant analyst and isn't afraid to get his hands dirty.
Yes and his narration of the Jack Ryan Junior novels is excellent.
It was a shame that the Campus had to temporarily shut down but you they will be back.
I am a huge Tom Clancy, Jack Ryan, and John Kelly fan. Not able to narrow down from there.
The way it mirrors current events in the World.
At first, I didn't think Lou Diamond Phillips could do justice to the characters, but he does have a surprising range of accents to keep the story flowing smoothly.
Clark is back.
Threat Vector leaves behind all the political polemic and unnecessary detail of "Locked On" and follows better the Clancy recipe for action. Some parts are a little difficult to "suspend belief" enough to accept although they are key to the overall plot (for example, the "Melanie" subplot - how can someone be incredibly smart and incredibly stupid at the same time?). I also miss how the older novels were always 5 or so years in the future where the next generation of technology was available, but all-in-all a good action novel. Lou Diamond Philips does his, as always, excellent job. He makes the characters and action come alive.
The story line is suspenseful and relevant.
The narrator swings back and forth from giving characters accents- sometimes they have them, sometime they don't. And his accents are horrible. His breathy "female" voices all sound the same.
When you buy one of these stories, you probably know what you are going to get up front. You have an expectation. The book does not disappoint. The story is fast paced and holds your interest. If you like this kind of book, you will like this book I think.

A good foundation was built for the story to unfold on. This was classic Clancy and reminded me of Debt of Honor and Bear and the Dragon. Decently fast-paced and you didn't get the feel that parts were drawn out.
I thought it was good but I wish I hadn't read the reviews which complained about his sharp breath intakes because there were times that I tended to fixate on it and I honestly don't know if I would have even noticed if I hadn't been "forewarned". It was worse at times than others. Only time I got annoyed was when he kept saying H-U-D rather than just saying hud.
Worth the time and credit.
Fast paced, interesting and action packed
John Clark, old school bad ass
The entire story was great, not one scene stood out
The whole book was exciting
Awesome story, well read by Phillips
Audible is better than TV
Cyber threat meets physical operators.
Clark He plays a rather limited roll, but I love the character.
No. I was rather impressed with Mr. Diamond's performance. Having seen Mr. Diamond's acting in several shows I was surprised at how well he did the voice narration. Well done.
Yes, but alas time is precious.
This really did not bring anything new to the Clancy series, but if you like Clancy novels this is a good read. Techies will need to be forgiving of the technical fiction found in this book. It is a novel for the masses, not the network engineer/programmer.
