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

    I would say it is a top 20. Stephen King stories are excellent and the reader was able to show great emotion.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Sissy Spacek?

    I have and would again, I just wish Sissy Spacek knew how to pronounce Desjardins.


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

    I was actually the most moved by the forward by Stephen King himself explaining where the idea for the novel came from and his regret over not helping the outcasts who were bullied in his youth. Made me think a lot more about it and possibly my own ineptitude in the past.

    Tom Clancy returns to Jack Ryan's early days, in an extraordinary new novel of global political drama. Ryan's first days on the job at the CIA put him into a high-stakes game, playing for the life of the Pope and the stability of the Western world.

    Would you try another book from Tom Clancy and/or Scott Brick?

    I have listened to all of the novels by Tom Clancy in the Jack Ryan universe and I especially like the audiobooks read by Scott Brick. I may branch into the Op Center books and I would gladly listen to Scott Brick.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The gap filling to a character you thought you knew so well. Jack Ryan is a well known character spanning so many books yet with this one it filled in even more back story and gave you more of what you wanted. I just wished that Clancy could have reduced some of the repetitive nature of his writing describing the nature of the characters.


    Did Scott Brick do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    He did a pretty good job for most but at times I could not figure out when he switched from one Russian to another.


    Do you think Red Rabbit needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I am eagerly waiting for anything from the Jack Ryan series.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Not one of the best in the Jack Ryan series so I would say listen only for completeness


    Would you be willing to try another one of Stephen Hoye’s performances?

    The reader's voice is great but I wish the sound engineer would cut the chapters so that the last sentence doesn't get repeated as the first sentence of the next chapter.

    Two men possess vital information on Russia's Star Wars missile defense system. One of them is Cardinal -- America's highest agent in the Kremlin -- and he's about to be terminated by the KGB. The other one is the American who can save Cardinal and lead the world to the brink of peace . . . or war. Here is author Tom Clancy's heart-stopping masterpiece -- a riveting novel about one of the most intriguing issues of our time.

    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Michael Prichard?

    Somebody who didn't have such a sleepy old man voice. I felt like I would fall asleep listening to him.


    Any additional comments?

    I couldn't hold on and listen to enough of the book to comment on the story but the narrator just disappointed me.
