With little over 3 hours into the book, it has become obvious that this book is less of an action thriller and more of a discussion of political intrigue . The question that begs to be asked “was this written by Tom Chancy or a group effort with his name attached”. Not one of the better Tom Clancy’s books.
I could not listen to more than 5 mins of the intro. The intro was against the practice of using bombing during war without any recognition of what war is. Good book for someone that is a pacifist
John Clark plays a reoccurring role in Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan book series. It would be interesting to know if John Clark’s background was generated before the first book was written. If not, then this book is a touch of genius by the author. The character’s traits’ and strengths’ in the other books are reinforced and consistent.
The plot moves along at a good pace and is not bogged down by extraneous details found in some of Tom Clancy’s other books. The details are sufficient to bring John Clark alive and give you the feeling you know some of the main characters. If this book was made into a movie, John Wayne would be John Clark.
A good action and drama novel and an enjoyable listening experience.
This was a little different from the black tower series but it was nicely done and provided some insight to earlier years.
good story and development was a little predictable in the end. would recommend the book
In the Ghost Story, John Glover is telling a Harry D. story, when J Masters was the narrator, it was Harry D speaking. Different approach. It gives the story a different feel. less real time. It could be that the nature of the story is different enough but you don't get the feeling that this is a Harry D story. Not bad, just not the same. Recommend getting the free chapter before you buy- I did not.
