Yes, if they're interested in how a cyberwar might play out in its early stages. No, if they're looking for an intricate plot, character development, etc. Clancy's The Hunt for Red October reads like a chess match. Threat Vector was like watching the game end in 4 or 5 moves. In a word, it's anticlimactic.
This was my first time listening to Lou Diamond Phillips. He a very good narrator; easy to understand with enough variation between characters to keep it interesting. He could slow down the pace a little, but you get used to his speed after a while. I'd definitely listen to him again.
I could see it, but I wouldn't see it. This would be a typical Hollywood blockbuster; full of hype with little substance.
Clancy spends more time describing military machinery and tactics than he does in developing characters and in spinning an engaging tale of strategy and deception.
The production. The sound is not good. Lou Diamond Phillips breath intake is annoying.
Anybody who would not gasp for breath.
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!!
