    Story
    (3126)

    Although his father had been reluctant to become a field operative, Jack Ryan Jr. wants nothing more. Privately training with a seasoned Special Forces drill instructor, he’s honing his skills to transition his work within The Campus from intelligence analysis to hunting down and eliminating terrorists wherever he can—even as Jack Ryan Sr. campaigns for re-election as President of the United States. But what neither father nor son knows is that the political and the personal have just become equally dangerous.

    Jackie says: "WHAT? WHEN? WHO? WHY? WHERE?"
    "Wayyyyyyyyyyyyy too much politics"

    What did you like best about Locked On? What did you like least?

    Always a good read. It is obvious that Clancy hates Democrates.


    Would you recommend Locked On to your friends? Why or why not?

    Nope. Would not waste another credit on him. He can't separate his politics from his art.


    Have you listened to any of Lou Diamond Phillips’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    A great performance. I look forward to listening to him with other authors.


    Do you think Locked On needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Sure, there must be plenty of fans who don't mind his mean spirited portrayals of half of this country.


    Any additional comments?

    Sad that Clancy has no issue marginalizing 50% of the potential reader base. Interesting how he can portray Democrats as un American. After reading most everything he has written ... I'm pretty much done.

    "'You knew they were there, didn't you?' Kahlan asked in a hushed tone as she leaned closer. Against the darkening sky, she could just make out the shapes of three black-tipped races taking to wing, beginning their nightly hunt. That was why he'd stopped. That was what he'd been watching as the rest of them waited in uneasy silence."

    Would you try another book from Terry Goodkind and/or Jim Bond?

    Nope not a chance.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Terry Goodkind again?

    Nope


    What didn’t you like about Jim Bond’s performance?

    I hope he was paid well ... how could anyone read the same two or three thoughts a thousand times ........ yikes. He should get an award


    Any additional comments?

    I considered going forward, but honestly I was using fast forward to get past the same thoughts repeated over and over and over and over and over and over ..... almost from book one. So no more credits for Terry ... and althought I enjoyed the early books unless you can let go .. do not start this very long trip. I should have stopped about three books back.
