It's not clever, or that original, but it is a great page turner! Really enjoyable escapism, and gripping (despite not being that original in concept).
Well read by lou diamond phillips and Flows along and keeps you gripped to the end
"Threat Vector "
Wanted the stroy to go on and on..... full of twist and truns.
Cannot wait for another story in the same vein..... if you watch the news it could striat off the front pape.
This is my first Tom Clancy, but I love the idea's, plus the game franchise. Lou Diamond Phillips really makes this book come alive, but the story for me, was well paced and well structured. I could hardly put it down, but it was easy to follow if you did, then picked it back up again. Highly recommend this book.
The son of the US President is an undercover operator for a CIA offshoot. If that is one of the more credible plot lines the listener is expected to accept you can imagine how incredible othere are.
The more the book progressed the more I thought it was comedy not thriller. I have never written a review before but feel obliged to warn other possible victims.
The plot of Lord of the Rings is more true to life than events in this "novel".
...and now they find evidence this actually exists. A very unusual book well written and presented. Recommended.
"Complicated, and too complicated"
I didn't enjoy this book, it was over Long and over complicated. Frankly, only finished it because I did not want to be defeated by it. I didn't find it an original plot in any way. The narration was also far too fast. I found myself rewinding constantly. I usually enjoy this author, but this didn't really excite me
An edge of the seat forget everything else book. the narration is excellent, the story- line punchy and total attention gripping. More of this please.
"Back on Target"
I am always a little wary when I see a book written by some famous author "with" someone else and wonder just how much of the the former we are getting. I have been disappointment with the last few Tom Clancy books I have read and so bought this with not very high expectations. The Reader is good although as normal some of the American pronunciations make me wince or smile but than it its and American book so to complain of and American reading it would seem a little churlish . The story however is right back on form and reminds me much more of the earlier Ryan novels. I have always enjoyed Clancy's level of detail and slow unwinding or plot mixed in with the compelling action. This seems to be right back on form. I still prefer the earlier Ryan books but am now looking forward to the next with some anticipation.
excellent as usual from Tom Clancy, held my attention from start to finish. I am looking forward to the next Jack Ryan book already.
