I probably would not choose a Tom Clancy book because it was so off topic from what I'm interested in. I could tell he did his research, and the writing was good. I just didn't care for the book.
no, I think it ended fine.
I buy audible book to listen to while I drive, if they are dull they can lull you to sleep. Believe me, this book will keep you awake!
Yes, this is highly entertaining.
The plot was fast moving and intriguing. It is helpful if you are a fan of the series and are familiar with the characters, but you don't have to be to enjoy the story.
Excellant. Moved effortlessly from character to character.
Not sure. It's classic Clancy, though. Lots of spy and weaponry information.
Excellent performance.I always knew which character was speaking. Very lively narration. I would definitely be happy to hear another book read by him.
Scared. Very scary scenario and very believable threat to our national security. 90% of our email at work is spam and I'm quite certain, based on the English grammar used, it is foreign-based hackers at work. This book's premise is very plausible.
You won't be disappointed if you've read other books by Clancy and enjoyed it. He still describes espionage tactics in detail so if you dislike that, you may want to skip this book.

I truly enjoyed this book. I am a huge Mark Greaney fan. They make a great duo of writers. The tech side of the ops is great and the movement of the plot keep you on your seat.
My first. Really enjoyed
no other experience
Easy to listen to, adds personality to the characters
15 hours, not hardly
Military Suspense Thriller
Lou Diamond Philips has a soothing voice that brings a calmness to the tension of the life and death situations. You know the conflicts will be resolved. He does a great job of changing his voice for different characters making all the voices sound natural - not like he obviously changed his voice.
Clancy seems to always be ahead of the crowd when pointing out present or future dangers. In this case, my listening coincided with real world headlines regarding China's cyberwar capabilities. Overall, a good story but dull writing.
BTW: LD Phillips is a good narrator but not at Scott Brick's level.

Threat Vector is the much-awaited continuation of the Jack Ryan saga, although this one, as the previous two books before it, centered much on the younger Jack Jr. As a certified Tom Clancy fan, I bought the book, e-book and the audiobook--that way I have options available to me. If you've read any Tom Clancy book before, you know that it's impossible to put down.
So anyway, Tom Clancy's strength played out in much the same fashion as in his previous works--his ability to meld current events with very plausible scenarios and come up with a completely believable story proves he's still the master of the game. At times I've found myself wondering if he had sat down with general officers and war-gamed these scenarios, as the details are just so ironed-out that it's like reading actual events.
This time around, the conflict is centered in the Asia-Pacific region, with the disputed South China Sea territories being in the center. Although the threat of mass-destruction in North America is not too apparent as in Executive Orders, the threat of a cyber meltdown is very much present. With much of the world dealings conducted in the wires, this is a very real, very plausible threat. If an antagonist such as the one in the book do exist, he then sits among the POTUS and the commander of a nuclear submarine as the most powerful individuals in the world.
Threat Vector is a must-read and/or must-listen-to Tom Clancy novel.
I don't want to give anything away, but it has got to be when the POTUS finds out where his son has gone to. You could almost see his face and feel what he's going through.
I've never heard Lou Diamond Phillips narrate a book before, but after this one, I'm buying whatever he's going to narrate in the future. He has put up a stellar performance!
As a soldier in the reserve forces in the Philippines, I'm very much aware of the tensions in the SCS. A lot of what-ifs crossed my mind while listening to and reading this book.
Need I say more? If you don't have this book, go and buy it now, and get ready for a great story.
Lou Diamond Phillips did a great job with characters and will look for more read by him.
