RIP Tom. We love and miss you, God knows, and I am certain it all looks far different from the Perspective at which you have now arrived. Mark Greaney represents you well, and Lou Diamond Phillips is keeping the flame burning.
Until we meet again.....
This is my second Tom Clancy book , and I have to say I love them . This book does not have a boring moment in it , keeps you wondering what's happening next . This is my first time listening to Lou diamond Phillips , and he is now among my favorite narrators . I think he gives great life to the characters
This is a great book whether you read it or listen to the audible version. Lou Diamond Phillips demonstrates good vocal range changing the tone and inflection for different characters.
I intend to listen to this book again in a few years. It's intriguing and suspenseful enough that it will be worth it.
This is just another example of why LDP may have found his new career. He does a great job with all the voices, and his characters are immediately distinguishable in a conversation.
You can feel the impact of Mark Greaney's input into the novel. He'll make a great torch bearer for all the follow-on's in the Jack Ryan series.
This is the fist audio book I have listened to on Audible. It was amazing! The plot was complicated and well developed. However, as it is Tom Clancy, the outcome was a bit predictable, but it was very satisfying.
I'm a narrator for Audible and a lover of recorded fiction in the mystery/thriller genre. A great book needs a great narrator.
Clancy's research is 2nd to none. Combined with his story telling and Lou Diamond Phillips narration this book is a Winner!!
I loved this story, which is probably why I finished it. Also, Lou Diamond Phillips was excellent as the narrator. However, the language was so bad that it should have an explicit warning. If the language was more toned down and reminiscent of the original Clancy novels this would have been so much better. As it stands, I'm not sure I will get the next in the series due to he language.
It was a fun plot. It really wasn't to the level of a true Jack Ryan novel, but still fun none the less. Several times I almost forgot I was running because I was so absorbed into the story. It won't wow anyone with deep characters or truly complex story lines with deep researched military understanding, but it is still fun and a good distraction to cardio.
He is easy to listen to and understand. Then, add to that the characters he pulls off and you have a great performance.
Please put an explicit rating on this and any other Clancy's that are this laced with poor language.
Found the story to be absolutely amazing, compelling and just to fight to quit listening between chapters. Lou Diamond Phillips' narrative does is the absolute best ever and would listen to any book he ever reads..Overall the best ever and highly highly recommended.
