I found the language in this book highly offensive. The blatant use of the Lord's name in vain caused me to wince many times. I didn't care for the lack of morality of the main characters. The performance by Gary Sinise was excellent and really helped my daughter get through this book for her English class.
Gary did a great Lenny.
If you are sensitive to harsh language, don't listen to this.
I have listened to all of Clancy's Jack Ryan Books. I have really enjoyed them. I think that I like Sum of All Fears the best followed by Debt of Honor and Executive Orders. Those were written as a trilogy and they are excellent. Hunt for Red October is also an excellent read. The book that I found most disturbing was Without Remorse; an excellent story with very disturbing subject matter. Teeth of the Tiger is also troubling and not very realistic, but most of the story is fun.
The ending was a cliff-hanger. It is particularly frustrating since Tom Clancy never finished the book. In fact, the book totally feels incomplete. Of all of the (actual) Tom Clancy books, I would rate this one at the bottom. The story starts out pretty good, but Clancy seems to have lost the thread
The narrator did a good job and I had no complaints.
Yes. Dead or Alive seems to be the follow-up, but it doesn't complete the original story.
