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.
I enjoy all of Clancy's books. The characters are rich even the bad guys. You really understand the mind-set of where they're coming from and it's always an adventure. lol..my favorite part had to be John Clarks fake heart attack..In my head, I'm imagined Fred G Sanford, " Elizabeth I'm coming to join you." not sure why but I couldn't stop laughing. John Clark is simply a badass. Even if he's an older guy. :)
I liked the story very much. This is the second book by Tom Clancy and I enjoyed it as much as the first one. I plan to read more one his books in the future.
My only objection to the performance was that the reader had no clue about Mandarin pronunciation....otherwise, great job.
If you like TC, then you'll like this one for sure, lots of misdirection, but you sort pick up on what's going on earlier than I prefer but it kept me interested nonetheless. if you didn't start at beginning of campus series, then at least read the one before this one, Locked On, you'll be glad you did. Enjoy!
Another good story by Tom Clancy. Although originally released in 2012 it still meets with headlines of 2016. WI cyber warfare that could happen by Americans enimies well it chilling. Lue Dimond Phillips performance is outstanding. Hope to see him on other Tom Clancy books.
... If not even mo' better. 5++ stars. I'm concerned if I elaborate, I may give away the plot or set incorrect expectations--immensely satisfying Clancy story! I highly recommend it and I recommend reading the series in proper sequence.
The book picked up the pace and had a number of great story lines. It provided great insights on cyber warfare and had an interesting ending.
Mark Greaney is doing a great job in continuing the Jack Ryan series. Lou Diamond Phillips continues to be the very best narrator of any audio book I've had the pleasure of listening to.
