my next listen was back to Tom Clancy
not sure if it was because of him, or because of the way the book was written...but very little exhuberation and or excitment carried on his voice.
Yes especially anyone interested in the Roman era. This book was very good targeting the other areas of the Roman empire.
How sophisticated the Roman empire was behind the scenes, although making sure it was a tough exterior.
It would have to be the doctor.
Earning your Gladius
I would like to see this book turned into a movie or a mini series.
I would in that the audio book gives you a reader that was able to change with characters...in the print version your imagination is limited to the character you create...
John kelly progression from military, victim to CIA operative.
Kelly, was my favorite followed by Greer and Mancuso.
Moved..no, but my favorite part was when he was attacked and hospitalized and PAM was killed...showing he was not a superhero and invincible, but made mistakes...
Great book, Michael prichard did an outstanding job assimilating characters, changing characters and reading this book...
Not sure, the story takes a long time to take off, the reader has a hard time bringing you in, he reads in run on sentences.
His reading was in "run on" sentences... hard to stay with him, follow him.
gosh, not sure i would cut scenes, but have it read by someone who can capture and bring you in ...Lou Diamond Phillips seems to do a good job of holding your attention when reading.
The end was good, but not sure if it was because it is coming to an end, or finally caught up to the story after all the "run on sentences".
Never read the print version, so i would not know.
The cardinal was my favorite character. He seemed to wanting to redeem himself someway, but never really figured why or how.
This book was worth the listen...narrated well and written well. interesting and action filled.
The Global effect of the overall story.
Yes, I think LDP, did a great job on this book... He seemed limited on his voice changes but otherwise I was captivated and wanted to keep listening to the next chapter.
I think a movie would be great as part of the Jack Ryan series already in place... a t.v. series would be good... but not sure if that would run out of gas.
For a movie... as Jack Ryan Jr., Matt damon, Mark Walberg, Jake Gyllenhal.or. Ben Affleck.
As Jon Clark... Tom Cruise, Willem Dafoe or sean penn.
the rest of the actors can be more easily placed.
