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.
I loved this book so much that I could not stop listening. On my 400 mile trip to Arizona I got a ticket because I did not notice the speed limit went from 75 to 65. I told the officer that I was listening to a Tom Clancy novel and he said that he loved his novels too. However he did admonish me to pay attention to the road more.
A really wonderful book and considering what is going on in the year 2015 Clancy definitely has a wonderful understanding of world politics and the military and technical capabilities of China
This is a very timely story and I find it ironic that I'm listening to it at a time when we are actually facing Chinese hackers. It was a great read!
