I've been following the stories of Jack Ryan and company since the 80's, always looking forward to the next instalment from Tom Clancy. This one continues the saga in a way that I think incorporates all the original values of the Ryan stories really well.
There are equal parts fast-paced plot and technology exposure. This time, although there is lots of detail of weapons used, etc., there is also a lot of computer technology in the picture. I've always found the technology aspect to make Clancy's stories more interesting.
Once again, the audio book is read by Lou Diamond Phillips with great pacing, consistent voicings, and an overall excellent presentation.
A great read!
I don't tend to re-read books very often, but this one had enough different aspects to it and a good pace. I might well revisit it in a year.
The book was well read, clear and easy to follow. The infrequent other characters were subtly different from the main narration voice. Overall very well presented.
My only negative comment on the book was that it contains regular exercises to examine your own work and life situations. This sort of exercise is hard to picture in audio form, and clearly requires sitting down and working at the exercise. I tend to listen to audio books on the move, and will naturally not stop to do the exercises.
