Love submarine thrillers and especially Clancy's early novels.
Plot moves along well, keeps you wanting to listen.
Anyone. I had no clue everyone in our military and intelligence services is from the deep south..... or that everyone in Russia has the exact same voice.
Narration is terrible. The speed almost seems sped up and the narrator is awful. Every single American sounds like they are from the deep south, all Russians are the same, Brits aren't too bad. Seriously, if you can't do accents, just NARRATE!
The only audiobook memoir I've found from a member of Hitler's inter-circle. As Hitler's valet he was obviously one of the closet to him, however much seems to have been purposefully omitted. Although unstated it is clear that Linge still thinks highly of his former "chief". If you haven't read other memoirs from those close to the former dictator this book could come off rather objectionable. Despite its flaws it's still an interesting listen. Recommend only to those interested and experienced in this era of history. Narrator does a good job.
Came across this one while searching for something similar to Clancy's early stuff like Red Storm Rising. Have gone on to read the following 2 novels by Jeff Edwards and wouldn't hesitate to purchase an audible version of either. Not many novels from a naval surface unit perspective. Narrator does a great job. The story moves along quickly and keeps you interested. Did find the "single combat" element a bit far fetched but was able to overlook it thanks to the entertainment value of the story. Highly recommend!!!
Plausible situation that makes you think but keeps you engrossed in the story at the same time.
Makes each character more personable and easier to imagine in your mind. Have also read the book and prefer my mental picture of the characters as described by Barrett.
