When I first started listening to Threat Vector, I almost gave up immediately due to how fast the reading was. Then I tried listening at half speed. It's a little odd getting used to it for about 3-5 minutes, then, at least for me, it became totally listenable. Give it a try! About halfway through and loving the book so far! New to Clancy and very happy; I'm always excited to learn about good authors : )
A page-turning (if not listening to the audio version, of course), believable thread that you can't stop listening to. In true Tom Clancy form, Threat Vector is filled with interesting characters, complex subjects which are explained in detail, and exciting action scenes that you hope will one day make it to the big screen. I had recently been turned off by some of Clancy's later work, however this book brought back some of the Tom Clancy of old.
Lou Diamond Phillips gives the best performance of any audio book I have listened to. For the first time, I have sought out other books based solely on the narrator. It was almost like having an ensemble cast with his various feelings and accents. Outstanding!
If you are looking for an adventure to listen to during drive time, this one will make the time fly by. You may find yourself parked in the garage to see what happens next.
I have only read the first Jack Jr book. The rest have been audible and great
Does a creditable job with all the characters.
A great listen. Took two sessions to finish it.
The cyber attack lacked the detail of some of Clancy's previous technical descriptions. However it had at the same time all the anomalies of a cyber attack and like horror pictures of old was scary because of what you didn't see
The story was another edge of the seat story by Clancy should be read by everyone who follows Ryan.
I firmly believe that cyber war fair is the next real threat to the U.S.A. this story gives you an idea of what could happen
Lou Diamond Phillips is every character he plays. Mr. Phillips is one of the best story tellers I have listened to very hard to say which one was my favorite that are all great.
Captivated me brought right into the story
If you like Clancy in the Ryan series you will like this story.
The trip to Miami was not very good at all
Clancy yes. Greaney No.
Solid voice portrayals.
Huh? Like what, shoot-up a cab, sneak into China wearing a paper mask?
It's been obvious over the past few years that Clancy is all but retired. However, whoever made the decision to hire Mark Greaney to write the Clancy books made a great decision. This book gave me the old Clancy feel written by one of the best up and comers in the business. If anybody is looking for another writer to follow, Mark Greaney and the Grey Man series is the way to go.
The pairing of Clancy and Greaney hit a home run with this one. This is more like the work of Clancy back during his "Hunt For Red October" Days and I totally enjoyed it. Since he seems to heading toward phasing John Clark out due to his 'age' I would like to see a younger version brought in, but for us old timers who have been reading Clancy for years, tread lightly and let us see flashes of the Old John Clark in the New One! Now, Mr, Phillips, while I have admired your abilities as an actor for a long time, I must say you need some lessons from people like Brick and Guildall or a better editor. I could hear every BREATH you took and it was very annoying. I had to try very hard to shut it out. You never hear Scott Brick nor George Guidall take a breath much less a sharp intake because they have run out of air. You have a good voice learn to use it better.
Nicely accurate; scarily possible
As a Desert Storm fighter vet, my favorite scene was the large force attack package and engagements during the attack on China.
Musician, composer, entertainer. I travel around Australia presenting clinics on drums and percussion. I write music from my home studio. I love film music and salsa music. Love being with Audible and listen constantly to comedy, thrillers etc on my iPhone when I'm setting up my show, packing the van or driving to and from the gigs. It's my friend in my ear!
Jack Ryan and son Jack Jnr. failed to grab my attention this time in what I thought was one of the weaker books in this series. The plot was a B movie script of Chinese officials duping their leader into almost going to war with the USA. It really needed someone from Jacks Academy to leap into Beijing wearing a cape, with their hands on their spread hips.
The ending involved using miffed local boy scouts and girl guides to hold off the Chinese Army whilst Jack Jnr. knocked off the baddie.
No wonder I kept falling asleep during this one.
PS. Jack - stop getting girlfriends. They keep betraying you son.
On a brighter note, LDP did a good job as narrator with what I thought was a dull story.
