I think I'm going to have to read this book in print before listening to it again. The narrator seems to read fairly quickly, which isn't a problem, per se, except that it gives everything a breathless urgency which doesn't quite seem to fit the first chapter that I listened to.
The other problem for me are the names. With as quickly as the narrator goes, it's difficult for me to keep the names straight, especially since, sadly, they run together, being unfamiliar.
The story itself seems interesting, but there was an odd jump from the first chapter to the second (which was as far as I listened), that left me confused.
Having grown up reading Tom Clancy novels, I'm used to novels that jump around during action scenes, giving different points of view on the same moment. However, and this could just be me, I find that novels that have audio-versions are very difficult to follow, and this one was no exception. While I think the plot had promise and the narrator did a great job distinguishing characters, this is one audiobook I won't return to until after I read the text copy for myself first so I don't find myself getting lost. There was just too much happening for me to be able to listen to and enjoy.
