    Debt of Honor ends as Jack Ryan is confirmed vice president minutes before a mammoth act of terrorism kills the President, most of his cabinet, all but a few members of Congress, the entire Supreme Court and all of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Suddenly Ryan is President, which is where Executive Orders begins.

    Where does Executive Orders rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of my favorite Clancy novels. It is an amazing story and to think it was witten several years prior to 9/11!


    Did Michael Prichard do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I was a little diasappointed by Michael Prichard's reading of the unabridged version. In my opinion, the gentleman that does the abridged version did a much better job with a variety of accents.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This is one book I enjoy lisening to over and over again. The detail of the tank and air battles are great.

  • Dark Genius of Wall Street: The Misunderstood Life of Jay Gould, King of the Robber Barons

    Author of The Kennedys at War and The Lion’s Pride, Edward J. Renehan, Jr. presents a fascinating biography of one of the most hated and most admired American entrepreneurs of all time. Here, he sheds light on Wall Street magnate Jay Gould and his frequently overshadowed creativity. Gould was the quintessential robber baron and the original modern businessman whose financial examples persist even today.

    Would you try another book from Edward Renehan and/or George Wilson?

    Yes


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jay Gould


    What about George Wilson’s performance did you like?

    Quite adequate!


    Any additional comments?

    My problem was not with the content or reader's performance but with the recording itself. There were numerous gaps throughout the recording. It was like reading a book and every now and then a page is missing. I tried downloading the book again but that did not make a difference. The problem persisted.
