Yes, I would recommend it to a friend. The author is a very educated man who has traveled far and wide. His life experiences are a huge bonus in understanding geographic hotspots and the reasons behind the conflicts.
The author shares many stories of his world wide journies to help the listener understand the different areas. It is very helpful for a fuller understanding of the situation.
I especially enjoyed the overview of China and the Middle East. It is helpful to know some geography before listening to this book.
A very thorough overview of potential conflicts in both the near term and long term.
I would listen to his book again because it is very entertaining. The narrator does an excellent job in voicing the several characters in the book. It is a silly story but it is well worth the listen.
The story is the set up for future story lines of this lineage. The book doesn't have enough story line in it to keep it interesting. This was my least favorite Clancy book. It was just plain boring in spots.
I have moved to The Killing Angels by Michael Shaara.
He did the best he could with just mediocre material.
The only way this should be made into a movie is if it is combined with the sequel to this book. Otherwise everyone in the theater will fall asleep.
Clearly not one of Clancy's best but then again he wrote many other wonderful books.
I would recommend tis book to anyone who has an interest in this particular part of ancient history. (200 BC)
Hannibal was my favorite character because the book goes into detail about his reasoning behind the great invasion. It also shows how Rome was
He did a great job changing voices and reserved a deeper voice for Hannibal. His performance was outstanding.
The part when Hannibal and his army was crossing the Alps. The sacrifice his men had to endure to survive this march is remarkable.
If you are interested in the days of the Roman Republic (200 BC) and want to listen to a very thorough review of Hannibal and the invasion of Italy this is the book for you. I can not rate this book high enough and will in a few weeks listen to it again.
This was one of the best audiobooks that I've listen too.
The story is very fast paced and exciting. It made the time on my treadmill go so much faster while listening to this book.
President Elect Jack Ryan was my favorite. He also does a good job on Jack Jr.
I listened to this book on my daily commute to work and while working out on my treadmill.
A great listen and I am looking forward to the next book in this series.
Starvation Heights is a very detailed oriented book that I found very interesting but not overly fascinating. The book covers the death of Claire Williamson in great detail. The trial of Dr. Linda Hazzard and her way of think is done in exact detail. However, I found that some parts were very dry and not really worthy of inclusion in this book such as the great details about the lifes of the Williamson sisters before the starvation treatment. While other subjects such as why Dr. Hazzard was granted a medical license is not covered at all...
