Familiar classic Clancy style.
The Chinese CIA agent was entertaining.
Air combat scenes were well researched.
No. Do not have such reactions to books.
"Threat Vector" is Tom Clancy back at his best. I have not been especially happy with some of Clancy's more recent books but this one it first class. Lou Diamond Phillips does an excellant characterization. Cyberterriorism is something that is real and people that can do at least most of the things that Clancy's villain does really exist and are doing damage all over the world. The sooner we become aware of such things the better off we will be.
It keep me guessing on who was behind the plot. This was another good write by Clancey
Yes, at first I was not use to his style, He is getting better though
I liked the technology as applied to the "real" world.
I liked the "good guy" characters.
I liked his portrayal of the different characters' voices.
I wanted to get to the end of the book to find out what happened but I didn't want the story to be over.
I really liked the narration by Lou Diamond Phillips. Somewhat chose the book because of this.
Senior Chief Bill
Sorry but so far I have not had time to listen to it ! When I do I will be glad to review it for you!
The characters who have wound their way throughout the Jack Ryan novels feel like family at this point. The members of this remarkably talented group struggle with everyday wishes and problems. You care about what happens to them.
I listened to this just days before the Chinese government hacked into several US companies. Their People's Liberation Army is believed to be behind cyber attacks which have, in 2013, been accused of hacking into Facebook, Apple, the New York Times, companies involved in the critical infrastructure of the United States such as the electrical power grid, gas lines and waterworks and and US government agencies, among others. While this is a work of fiction, Clancy has once again tapped into the events that are shaping life as we know it right now. The intricate chain of events and weaving together of the lives of each character keep you on the edge of your seat. The level of reality to what is really coming out of China today will scare the heck out of you.
Tense and scary
Clancy up to his old style. China claims the southern China sea for it's own and the US is under massive cyber attack. Lots of the technical details for which Clancy is so well known with his usual cast of character. If you like Clancy, you will not be disappointed.
I have listened to over 250 books in the last 10 years. I tend to listen to certain authors and try to read all their books. I listen while exercising and driving which makes the time past enjoyable.
Typical Clancy espionage
Yes, but it was not as fast moving, with a lot detail that disrupted my concentration.
He is alway excellent
Future Cyber warfare could be today
The cyber attack are a real possibility. Having the President's son doing under cover in China is too unrealistic.
The writing, especially the dialog.
I don't know that anyone could have made this dialog sound natural.
The performance was pretty good.
Yes - I won't read or listen to any more by this author. I am a government worker and everyone doesn't run around dropping the f bomb. Take that word completely out of the book and I will recommend it. Can't even listen to the book with my family!!!!
Take the explicit sex junk out also. It doesn't lend anything to the story line. I can visualize what happened with out you telling me explicitly.
