This book was worth the listen...narrated well and written well. interesting and action filled.
The Global effect of the overall story.
Yes, I think LDP, did a great job on this book... He seemed limited on his voice changes but otherwise I was captivated and wanted to keep listening to the next chapter.
I think a movie would be great as part of the Jack Ryan series already in place... a t.v. series would be good... but not sure if that would run out of gas.
For a movie... as Jack Ryan Jr., Matt damon, Mark Walberg, Jake Gyllenhal.or. Ben Affleck.
As Jon Clark... Tom Cruise, Willem Dafoe or sean penn.
the rest of the actors can be more easily placed.
Though my favorites by far are the core Jack Ryan books, as they give both a great story and character development, this ongoing series is a good way to keep the story going as and did not disappoint. The characters are a bit two dimensional, but as thrillers go, at least we're getting to keep up with what-happens-next in the lives of the original JRetc characters. Though this story did grab my attention early on, there was a point when I thought it was just going to be a remake of the previous JRJ-and-friends books. Stuck with it, though, and soon the story took some new turns and got interesting in its own right. One warning--don't jump in here--read the series in order, otherwise it will be quite difficult to handle the moral dilemma created and explored by the overall premise. Can't say more without giving you spoilers! The narration was very well done.
Probably wouldn't listen to it again since I know the story.
Yes I would recommend Threat Vector to anyone who wants a fast paced escape from the real world into a modern, well researched, fiction.
His voice inflections and dramatic influence help the flow of the story. This is the first performance I've heard from Lou, but I will be looking for him again in the future.
the suspense thoughout the book
yes, every chapter
yes, as always great
terror in cyber space
the advanture of each chapter interacting
The focus on the cyber threat and the plausibility of such a thing happening.
Adam Yao - liked the personality and could see someone acting the way he did.
It was energetic.
Started loving books as a teen. Burroughs, Howard, Tolkien. Moved on to Asimov, Keyes and Ludlum. Current faves Greaney, Hunter and Rothfus. I'm an old mechanic who loves the outdoors and computers
I guess I am a closet techy because I love Clancy's stories most because of their accuracy where tech is involved. The fact that he has built characters over many years and situations that bring you into the story is a bonus. This means that there is enough information and detail that I can get plenty of entertainment out of the story the second time around.
I loved the conversation that Jack Ryan had with the Chinese Prime Minister that caused the Chinese leader to give him the information he could use to assassinate teh Defence Minister.
Mr. Philips has become the voice of of Tom Clancy novels. Very good performances.
not quite but good none the less
Narration was ok but story did not, as advertised, revolve around Jack Ryan. It was more a story of "The Campus". Way to much "computer geek" talk. Could tell that it was not a true Clancy story. The Jack Ryan actions that I was looking for (Debt of Honor,Executitive Orders) did not exist. This book should be listed as a Jack Ryan Jr. novel.
the plot and the narrator
there is not specif memorable moment but the plot flow is great
shootout at the bar
The enemy is in your computer
No. Authors like Vince Flynn research every aspect of their story to make it believable. In contrast, Tom Clancy clearly doesn't understand Information Technology because some of his statements remind me of NCIS episodes - meaningless techno babble.
I don't know if it was because of the abundance of characters in the story, but the voices Lou used for some characters were terrible. I have to admit, anyone narrating this book would have a hard time.
After listening to Vince Flynn's books, this was very disappointing. Vince Flynn kept me in the car after arriving at work. Tom Clancy made me want to fall asleep behind the wheel.
At times I thought I was listening to the movie "Guys and Dolls" because Tom Clancy characters don't use contractions when they speak. Very annoying.
complex engaging frightening

Yes, on par
