The collaboration of Mark Greaney with Tom Clancy has made for a very tight concise action packed novel. If you have read some of Clancy's earlier works you know he is a master at plots, sub plots, and bringing them all together at the end. I found in Clancy's later works that the plot, sub plots became wrapped up in Minutiae, information in such detail that skimming would not detract from the plot. I could not finish some of his later works, too slow, too VOLUMINOUS... In Threat Vector you find none of that, just a great action pack story with the sub plots you come to expect and characters that just jump off the page with realism... Hopefully Command Authority will be as good... Highly recommended. The narration is super!!!!
I guess I'm weird, because the way Lou Diamond takes a quick little breath before each sentence was very distracting to me, and just about drove me batty. After a few minutes of each listening session I started to disregard it and focus on the story, but for a while I was annoyed almost to the point of turning off the recording.
since there is no way to mark books as read in the library I thought this might be a way to mark them
I enjoyed the book so much that I went right back for a second listening! Now that he is gone, I'm not sure what else is worth listening out there!
This is a great story with a wonderful performance by the narrator. Suspenseful, intriguing, engaging.
Lou and some of the content made it mind numbing at times. I am a huge Clancy fan... But this one missed it.
The narration was a bit eh... Also they tend to get really long and boring in setting up some of the characters. Actually made the book boring. I guess I just need to stick to Clancy classics.
Great story line and subplot, I found myself talking and yelling the characters.
The capture of the chinese death squad leader, he folded like a deck of cards, coward!
The rescue of the Hornet pilot
This was my first audio book by Clancy, It shall not be the last!
Harry Turtledove fan
The author is not alive. So there is no next novel.
The book starts off very well. But ending was hurried and unbelievable.
Having spent years growing older with these characters, its nice to see they are feeling the years too!!
Pity Mr Clancy died before his time, however I look forward to the book that's already done.
Absolutely I would recommend this book to a friend, it is probably more accurate that the news.
I really like Gavin Biery, the behind the scenes computer whiz who can do just about anything in the cyberworld.
Such a great and consistent portrayal of the characters.
It made me shudder, thinking that this cyber-warfare is really happening, and hoping we really have some folks that are as good as Jack Jr. and Ding and Gavin to defend us.
Tom Clancy will be missed greatly!
