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
When the United states realizes that hackers could literally control any essential system remotely
Yes, on par
On my long commute I have become addicted to audio books. I listen for hours daily!
The storyline was great, it kept me on the edge of my seat!
The romance storyline. I hated her for abusing Jacks trust.
Listening to this book is like being hooked on Meth. You will beg, borrow and steal time to listen to this book once you get hooked within the first 5 minutes.
If you are a Clancy fan then you would enjoy this book. In my reading, the use of the son as the main character, just doesn't come up to the thriller level that Clancy had under the Father. There is, however, enough of the old Clancy in the writing to make it a good way to spend some time.
The narration by Lou Diamond Phillips was excellent. A wee bit hokey on the accents at times but performance wise I do give it a 5 star rating.
Yes, performance was great! Very engaging and hard to put down.
Yes, author used great detail in developing characters.
Nope, first one
I wanted to but didn't have time
Fantastic high tech story line that is built off of many current world issues. I could see it happening ....
Very solid plot that was hard to pause.
This is the second audible book that I listened to from him and he has become my favorite reader.
Very solid effort. Clancy is back to teaching us about topics as well as keeping us in suspense. I heartily endorse this book.
This Clancy book really stands upright by itself. It always helps to have read previous books but in this case you really didn't need to . I would consider listening to this then going back 3 or 4 and catching up.
Lou Diamond Phillips does an outstanding job narrating as he has in the past with strange last names and different accents.
Stare down, Chinese style
You need to be somewhat excited about computers and the internet or weapons to really have a good listen.
I've been an audible subscriber for years but this was the very first time I simply couldn't stop listening. Clancy has done a marvelous job at building suspension, and the narrator tops that off with a great performance. I found myself pushing off other things just so that I could listen to "one more chapter"!
Yes because it was interesting, return of some ol' favorite characters and some interesting new ones.
I was moved to anger and disbelief with Melanie's stupidity and wimpiness.
I loved the pace with which Lou Diamond Phillips read. I hope they continue to work with him.
