    (754)

    Newly elected, Jack Ryan has found that being President is not easy: domestic pitfalls await him at every turn; there's a revolution in Liberia; the Asian economy is going down the tubes; and now, in Moscow, someone may have tried to assassinate the chairman of the SVR - the former KGB - with a rocket-propelled grenade. Were the potential assassins political enemies, the Russian Mafia, or disaffected former KGB? Or is something far more dangerous at work here?

    What disappointed you about The Bear and the Dragon?

    Love Clancy's books, but I can't get through this one...the narrator SUCKS. He stops mid-sentence and then starts then after pause finishes. Monotone, no excitement or inflection. I have never gotten into the habit of listening before purchasing, and this book makes me seriously wish I had. There is humor in Clancy in parts, and this guy just rolls right over it without any difference in tone or feeling. Don't waste your time listening, unless your goal is sleep. I have been an audiobook listener for years now, and this has to be THE worst ever.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    NO clue, they all sound the same!


    Would you be willing to try another one of Michael Prichard’s performances?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    If Scott Brick was a choice, I didn't see it.
