This was my first Tom Clancy book. I was in the mood for a thriller and stumbled upon this. I have never read his books before and I have never seen the movie adaptations. This story starts off with a bang and a good deal of excitement to get the reader hooked. Then it slows down quite a bit for quite a few pages - but Tom Clancy is such a brilliant writer it was a joy to listen to the way he crafted this story.
I did find it a bit slow in the middle of the book - maybe a little too much detail, but I can appreciate this writer enough to overlook the dull bits. And the ending is worth it. By the end of the book, I had grown to know these characters in such a detailed way, that I could not stop listening until I found out what happened to them. I got so caught up in the tension and excitement that I completely lost track of time.
