The narrator - has a nice voice making it easy to follow the characters
I have not finished the book yet.
I have not listened to other books narrated by Phillips - but here are some problems. Everytime he takes a breath - you hear it. A good audio person should have been able to fix that. Also they have speeded up the rate of his talking so that I had to slow it down to 1/2 rate in order to follow the book. Average rate of speech is 150 WPM. When you make it faster it is harder for me - and perhaps others - to follow the story. When you slow it on an iPhone there is a slight reverberation. Not the fault of the iPhone.
My main reaction to the book is the issue with the breath intake of the reader. I should be focusing on the plot of the book not the audio problems of the book.
I am really concerned about this problem with audible books as this is the second book that I have observed this issue. The other was Darkness at Noon. Audible needs to fix this problem - or they shall lose me as a customer.
The Panther, Split Second & One Amazing Things were done beautifully. What gives????? Are you selective about who gets the better treatment in order to hurry the book to the public?
bow wow arf arf arf
In the bar in China...the first gun battle
the different pitch of his mono-tone voice great
wise I could have....you know other things to do like grands to school....pick-up after school
when will the movie come out?
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.
less facts and more action
I would be hesitant
good voice but not too expressive
I was pretty bored from the beginning and stopped listening after a few chapters, could not get my money back. I feel cheated.
Didn't read the print version.
Great spy mystery. Mark Greaney does a good job of tempering Tom Clancy's books. Clancy had too much going on, too many characters in too many different places. Every day I'd start listening, it took a while to figure out what was going on. I'm curious if Greaney finished the book after Clancy died, or if they worked together.
Yes, he continues to get better with each book. I didn't think he did that well in his first book, but is doing well now. Much better at changing his voice for different characters.
Not that I recall. The entire book was good.
Definitely recommend this book. One of the best.
simply put .I love listening to books. for over35 years now.My interest very love stories,fantasy novels, mysteries almost everything.
for yes how ?
the thought that could really happen that's scary.
the key thing to the books in listening library (abudiblebooks) is the voices, the voices behind the stories that gives it life.the answer to your question is, if I don't like the voice . i don't get the book.
the whole BOOKmove me it increase my weirdness.
