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.
Please spay/neuter your pets! Adopt your next pet from your local shelter/rescue group!
Again another good Clancy novel made all the better by Phillips' masterful narration! He should be the ONLY Clancy work narrator!
Bachelor Chef and Mathematician. I don't bother with books shorter than 20 hours, not worth the effort.
The story followed the previous thread very well without twenty pages of rehashing.
Jack Junior was my favorite as his story has been built through the previous 15 books.
This is probably Lou Diamond Phillips' best genre. He gives an added interest and dimension to the story line. I am truly amazed that he is not being chosen to complete the rest of the books. Rather using a mediocre narrator to save money I would assume. After a few books, as audio book sales plummet, Random House will realize that Scott Brick is a one trick pony and has no ability to keep the interest in the story.
I wanted to savor this book for hours and draw it out as long as possible. Unfortunately it ended long before I was ready for it to do so.
I won't buy any books that Scott Brick narrates as he has no ability to change his performances and it completely predictable in his narrations.
The story line was plausible and easily followed.
Don't pass this one by. It is first class in every respect, worth the read.
I enjoyed this audiobook immensely. The narration was top-notch, as was the storyline. Some listeners have complained that the more recent books haven't been as good as Tom Clancy's older books, but I find them quite enjoyable.
I have INSISTED that my child, who is majoring in Cyber Security, listen to this story to gain a deeper understanding of what they are going up against. The book is fascinating and complex.
