    First feelings of lust for another boy, all-night study sessions, the excitement of a student hot for a teacher...is it any wonder that college boys are the objects of fantasy the world over? Whether toweling off after a swm, lurking in the library stacks, or engaging in some male bonding at the frat house, these gorgeous undergrads are good for page-turning, arousing action.

    As mysterious injuries, and even deaths, begin to appear in the medical ledgers, it's clear that all is not well amongst the native recruits to Britannia's imperial army. Is the much-decorated centurion Geminus preying on his weaker soldiers? And could this be related to the appearance of Emperor Hadrian? Bound by his sense of duty and ill-advised curiosity, Ruso begins to ask questions nobody wants to hear. Meanwhile his barbarian wife Tilla is finding out some of the answers....

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes especially anyone interested in the Roman era. This book was very good targeting the other areas of the Roman empire.


    What did you like best about this story?

    How sophisticated the Roman empire was behind the scenes, although making sure it was a tough exterior.


    Which character – as performed by Simon Vance – was your favorite?

    It would have to be the doctor.


    If you could rename Semper Fidelis, what would you call it?

    Earning your Gladius


    Any additional comments?

    I would like to see this book turned into a movie or a mini series.

    His work for the CIA is brilliant, cold-blooded, and efficient, but who is he? In a harrowing tour de force, phenomenally best-selling author Tom Clancy shows how an ordinary man named John Kelly crossed the lines of justice and morality to become the CIA legend known as Mr. Clark. It is an unforgettable journey into the heart of darkness, without mercy - without remorse.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Without Remorse to be better than the print version?

    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...


    What did you like best about this story?

    John kelly progression from military, victim to CIA operative.


    Which character – as performed by Michael Prichard – was your favorite?

    Kelly, was my favorite followed by Greer and Mancuso.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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...


    Any additional comments?

    Great book, Michael prichard did an outstanding job assimilating characters, changing characters and reading this book...

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    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.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    not sure


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    His reading was in "run on" sentences... hard to stay with him, follow him.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Debt of Honor?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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".

    Jack Ryan has only just moved back into the Oval Office when he is faced with a new international threat. An aborted coup in the People's Republic of China has left President Wei Zhen Lin with no choice but to agree with the expansionist policies of General Su Ke Quiang. They have declared the South China Sea a protectorate and are planning an invasion of Taiwan. The Ryan administration is determined to thwart China’s ambitions, but the stakes are dangerously high as a new breed of powerful Chinese anti-ship missiles endanger the US Navy's plans to protect the island.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This book was worth the listen...narrated well and written well. interesting and action filled.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The Global effect of the overall story.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Lou Diamond Phillips?

    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.


    Could you see Threat Vector being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    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.
