A nice premise to start with, ruined by the unrealistic portrayal of the characters. Too much coincidence. I mean come on!!!! Having the presidents son find a pilot that has ejected from a high speed jet in China? when they both started out near the bombed out place and the pilot ejected several minutes later? Did he circle around? Did his plane stall?
And this is only one of about a dozen improbable things that happen.
I'm just an average man, with an average life I work from nine to five; hey hell, I pay the price
I would definitely recommend this book. It is captivating.
This story has it all Intrigue - Action - Violence - Drama - Humor - Fascinating Characters
This is the first time I have listened to Lou. His accents were spot on. English - Russian - Chinese - Male - Female. Man, Lou was amazing.
I was on the edge of my seat listening to this book. I laughed - I gasped - I held my breath - I screamed and talked to the characters as I was listening to it on a drive back from vacation. I am sure the drivers next to me thought I was crazy.
Please Tom Clancy - I need more of these characters. Loved Jack Ryan, Jr - Gavin - Dean - Jack Ryan, Sr. - John - Adam. Especially Adam and Gavin what a great pair of characters.
This is the first book I have reviewed, and I always finish books I start - but in this case, I can't finish it as an audible version. Lou Diamond Phillips talks very quickly, audible breathing, and if you saw this on an audio graph - there is very little variation in volume, tone, speed...... I kept falling asleep - we couldn't even listen to it in the car, we kept getting distracted and having to back it up to grasp the plot again...... I've tried several times to finish this - and I still haven't. I'm going to the library for the written version.

Again another good Clancy novel made all the better by Phillips' masterful narration! He should be the ONLY Clancy work narrator!
