    Jack Ryan has only just moved back into the Oval Office when he is faced with a new international threat. An aborted coup in the People's Republic of China has left President Wei Zhen Lin with no choice but to agree with the expansionist policies of General Su Ke Quiang. They have declared the South China Sea a protectorate and are planning an invasion of Taiwan. The Ryan administration is determined to thwart China’s ambitions, but the stakes are dangerously high as a new breed of powerful Chinese anti-ship missiles endanger the US Navy's plans to protect the island.

    What made the experience of listening to Threat Vector the most enjoyable?

    The performance was pretty good.


    Has Threat Vector turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes - I won't read or listen to any more by this author. I am a government worker and everyone doesn't run around dropping the f bomb. Take that word completely out of the book and I will recommend it. Can't even listen to the book with my family!!!!


    Which character – as performed by Lou Diamond Phillips – was your favorite?

    Ryan Jr


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    Take the explicit sex junk out also. It doesn't lend anything to the story line. I can visualize what happened with out you telling me explicitly.

    When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early 40s, the little town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty façade is a town at war. Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils.... Pagford is not what it at first seems. And the empty seat left by Barry on the town's council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen.

    Would you try another book from J. K. Rowling and/or Tom Hollander?

    This book was not good. I listened to the first 8 chapters and quit. The story didn't move and the reader put me to sleep. I would not recommend this book and if J.K. Rowling doesn't write better than this I won't get another of her books.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Dick Francis books


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment and horror that she would write something as bad as this
