This was a typical Clancy book. I very much enjoyed it. That is until it abruptly and inexplicably ended. It was as if there were other parts to the download that I didn't have. I literally checked for missing parts twice. It wasn't until I pulled my hardcover off the shelf and looked at the ending that I really believed that the book had ended this way.
I would recommend it if you like Clancy's spy novels and if you are willing to be entertained for 16 hours and then left hanging and disappointed (with the ending) at the conclusion of the book.
The book was below average compared to most books I listen to. That said, it kept my attention and interest enough not to stop listening. I have no interest in investing resources in future books in this series.
I believe there are other books in the series. I will not read them....
As I recall, I bought the book on sale. It was worth a few bucks but would not have been worth a full credit.
Absolutely! I very much enjoyed the thought provoking topics and rationale that was presented by most of the speakers. Unlike a print version of this "book," the audio version is actually digital recordings of guest speakers and short Q & A sessions that followed. I would love to hear additional speakers in a sequel. I would suggest that Eric edit his introductions. I very much have enjoyed Eric's books and have learned a lot about great leaders (I would recommend any of his books to you). However, before each speaker Eric spends nearly TEN full minutes introducing them and telling jokes. I appreciate a brief introduction so that I know the background of the speaker. A joke or two would be fine. However after the first few introductions I started skipping the intro all together (saving myself 10 minutes per speaker) and jumping right to the meat of the topic.
Well told story. The main character reminded me of Odd Thomas but in a fresh storyline.
I very much enjoyed listening and continually wondering what made the main character so different. What an amazing and interesting twist/revelation that completed the book. I hope there is a follow up to this book.
I would highly recommend this book to everyone.
I enjoyed the first few chapters (or so) of this book. After that the author seemed to simply rehash the same idea over and over and over. I would not consider this book a waste of time or money but would recommend when you note that the book is becoming redundant that you stop and consider it done.
Great concept but too redundant and long for the idea presented.
Thrilling military (special forces) story.
Back in the day, I actually read a few of these books--holding the printed page. I found them enjoyable so I thought I would give it a try again. If you like Tom Clancy's work, you will likely enjoy this book. It is important to note that Op Center books are not as detailed (complex story lines) as Tom's full novels. That said, the more complex story lines can be a bit to keep track of unless you are staying steadily with the book.
I would recommend this book and will buy others.
This book would serve as a great resource for any church leader. In general, there are many life lessens to take away from this book. As with most books, there will be parts that may not be applicable to everyone's situation. However, you will not regret the time spent listening. This, like many good books, was compelling to the point that I subsquently bought the print copy so that I could go back and study it in depth! Enjoy.
I highly recommend this book! It is the first book that I was tempted to start reading again as soon as I finished it! I read a paper copy of this book and I am very interested in listening to the audio version.
I bought multiple copies of the book to give as gifts!
While this book may not be of unending layers of depth, nor is it shallow. I found it to be entertaining. I was not disappointed and if you are looking for entertainment I doubt that you will be disappointed.
Some reviewers have complained about the content and if it is correct or factual. The author gives references (amazing for a book of fiction)! Some times books are for enjoyment. This certainly fits the bill, regardless of your scientific or political views. Enjoy.
