The story was unique and engaging.
This is a good book marred by a bad reading. The author seldom takes a breath; if you aren't paying close attention, you can move onto the next director and not even know it. I didn't realize I was past the prologue and into the first chapter for over three minutes. Also, this book sound like it was done at the guy's house at times, and there is no editing at all. When the author makes a mistake, he pauses (the only real pauses in the narration!) goes back a few words, and starts over; pages can be heard turning as he goes through his script, and in Chapter 18, either the file is bad, or the author skipped a few lines because something is missing. That said, it's not all bad, and the material is engaging enough that I now want to buy the kindle version of the book.
Fire this narrator and get someone else.
Jack Ryan has always been my favorite character in these books.
J. Charles is HORRIBLE. His Russians all sound like Count Dracula, his Robbie sounds like a white southern hick, which wouldn't be a problem except for the fact that Robbie is A BLACK MAN. He rushes through the story, barely pausing to take a breath. I have listened to other Tom Clancy audiobooks. Heck, I had another copy of this very book, but lost it and decided to replace it with the Audible version. This guy is horrible and I hope that he doesn't narrate any other Clancy books.
Great book, horrible narrator.
