As a mum to 4 kids, I rarely get time to read, so audio is a life saver to me. The classics are my favorite, but I love finding new writers.

    It is fall. CIA analyst Jack Ryan, historian and former Marine, is vacationing in London with his wife and young daughter. Suddenly, right before his eyes, a terrorist group launches its deadly attack. Instinctively, he dives forward to break it up, and is shot. It is not until he wakes up in the hospital that he learns whose lives he has saved - the Duke and Duchess of Kent.

    Story

    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.
