Yes - very entertaining and relevent to todays threats
Multiple charecters and storylines keep you engaged
Complex story, as usual for Clancy, but I was able to keep up with the plot and the characters. A scary look at the vulnerability of our nation in the internet age.
I really enjoyed this book. Lot's of intrigue and action! Lou Diamond Phillips does a fantastic narration job.
Jack Junior is earning experience and becoming a serious threat to those trying to harm the USA.
The rescue of the American pilot
Lou is excellent and his voice is pleasant
Kept me in suspense throughout
I stopped listening to it after 5 sentences. Why does the reader breath so loud into the mic?
I would never sit through a read this long. Bit, the audio was very entertaining
Like the TV show '24'
The bombing at the end
I would listen to it again. Lou Diamond Phillips is great! He really brings it to life. I have no idea how he remembers and changes his voice for so many characters perfectly.
It's very up to date and timely, makes you think of the non-obvious threats out there
I believe this is Lou Diamond Phillips's 3rd Tom Clancy Book. I think it would be cool if he went back starting from "Hunt for Red October" and performed them all!
I listened to the earlier Tom Clancy book, and while it was hard to get used to Lou Diamond phillips' speech patterns, I began to appreciate his many different dialects and thought he was spot on. This book was much easier to dive into because I was ready for his voice. His ability to mimic accents and sound like a native speaker when using Chinese, Russian, Spanish, French, and the many other languages in this book allows the listener to discern the large group of different characters in the story.
I've read most of TC's books and this is the first one in probably 10 years I found memorable. Strong storyline, great pacing and dynamic events along with LDP's wonderful accents made it a world to dive in.
Not a fan of Jack Ryan or his son Jr but I thought I would try again. I am bored to death and think the title should be "Sleepy Vector". Returning the crappy Tom Clancy rip off now. Words, words, words words, words words words words no story, no plot.
Lou Diamond Phillips has great performance and is an excellent narrator to this complex story with many characters and threads. He aptly tracts that characters slightly different voices and maintains the character voices throughout the 18 hours of audio.
Tom Clancy contiues his great writing style and ability to weave a thread of reality into fiction. It is never very hard to have to suspend dis-belief while reading this novel, especially with how close the subjaect matter is to reality.
I am only a casual reader, and generall read for information (technical, etc.). Tom Clancy novels have rarely disappointed in their ability to entertain and, in most cases, educate. The education is not the typical typoe, but more of an enlightenment on complex issues - like electronic espionage in this case. This was my first Audible experience and it did not disappoint.
