    This long-awaited culmination of the Agent of Change sequence of Sharon Lee and Steve Miller's internationally acclaimed Liaden Universe novels pits unexpected friends and unexpected enemies against each other in a war that spans planets and races - and threatens to bring interstellar violence to the very surface of fabled Liad.

    Story

    Although I usually prefer print over audio, because I like this series so much, I wanted it in as many formats as possible. I purchased the entire audio series as soon as it was available in 2012 but did not actually start listening to it until October 2013, finishing the entire five-volume "Agent of Change" sequence in just under two weeks.

    For the most part, I enjoyed the audio version very much. I tend to read very fast and the audio forced me to slow down immensely; I even picked up on some scenes that I apparently missed while reading the series.

    Mr. Caploe gives a good reading performance although I do disagree with the pronunciation of of certain (English) words. My main criticism of his performance deals with his character voice for Pat Rin in "I Dare". I have always had an affinity for Pat Rin, a quiet, elegant, and reticent person, and to hear him presented in a nasally, almost (to me) hoodlum-like voice was extremely off-putting and grating to the ear. Another voice that could have been done better was Anthora; he made her sound like some "Valley Girl" parody.

  • Without Remorse

    • ABRIDGED (5 hrs and 54 mins)
    • By Tom Clancy
    • Narrated By David Dukes

    Story

    John Kelly, former Navy SEAL and Vietnam veteran, has a mission - but the Pentagon wants him for a mission of their own. As Clancy takes us through the twists and turns of Without Remorse, he blends the exceptional realism and authenticity that are his trademarks with intricate plotting, knife-edge suspense, and a remarkable cast of characters.

    Billy says: "Not His Best, But Worth The Read"
    "Unfortunately abridged..."
    Overall

    This is one of my favorite Clancy books and I was so looking forward to hearing it again. Unfortunately, this is an abridged version which is noticeable in more than one instance. This drops my rating from 5 to 3.
