Publisher's Summary

For years, ex–Navy SEAL Maxwell Moore has worked across the Middle East and behind the scenes for the Special Activities Division of the CIA, making connections, extracting valuable intelligence, and facing off against America’s enemies at every turn. And then...news of a potentially devastating coalition: What if two of the greatest threats to the security of the United States were to form an unholy alliance? The Taliban is trying to exploit a Mexican drug cartel to which they supply opium as a means to bring the fire of jihad to the hearts of the infidels. It is up to Moore, and his team, to infiltrate and dismantle the drug cartel, even as they hunt for those who would bring the ultimate terror and destruction to the streets of America.In a story that races from the remote, war-scarred landscapes of the Middle East to the blood-soaked chaos of the U.S.–Mexico border, Tom Clancy once again delivers a heart-stopping thriller that is frighteningly close to reality.

    "Really enjoyed this one"

    looks like Clancy / Telep are developing a new character. Look, if you are looking for literature, I guess, this isn't it! This is fun, tense and while I was a bit put off by Weber, his narration got better as the book went on.

    "Enjoyable Listening"

    Listened to this book at work, it seemed to start slowly but eventually I was looking forward to getting further into it. Doesnt seem to drag out like some books that are this long. I would recommend it if you are fan of Clancy.

    "The usual Clancy"

    Have you ever wondered why Tom Clancy novels are so long? It is because he insists on describing every scene in detail, down to the most minor. In this book he describes the training of a Navy Seal for at least 30 minutes. Every weapon is described down to the last screw. Every plane and helicopter takes minutes of description. I figure that he is either trying to dazzle the reader with his intimate knowledge or he is being paid by the word. Another annoying characteristic is his habit of introducing new characters and sub-plots in each sequential chapter so that by the time he goes back to an existing one, you can't remember what was going on. The main plot is ok, but takes too long to develop.

    "Could have been good, but ...."

    Story starts with too many story arcs and a massive waste of space.
    As soon as you get a grip on who and what the character is he/she is killed.
    No one survives the story other than the 'hero' who self loathes himself all through the book to the point that you just skip ahead in attempts to avoid listening to it all over again...
    The two story arcs that makes up the actual story is pretty good, but weeding out the rest of the junk is just too painful.

    "Not up to his former standards."

    Found this book to really be a drag. Too many flashbacks, jumped around and hard to keep track of just what was going on. If they should ever make a movie, I sure would like to have guns, ammo and explosives contract. Evidently the main guy does not understand that "stuff" happens and seems to want to carry the a lot of blame for everything. Actually I fell asleep several times, just could not get involved with it.

    "Sorry? Who wrote this exactly?"

    I am sorry but I cannot think this was written by TC, it is misses everything that makes his work work. Either he is in his dotage and lost the plot or he is being 'played' by the publishers. Couldn't follow it, the names were all over the place and you lost track, it just made me think 'what is going on here?' This is the only bad report I have ever written for TC and if he DIDN'T actually write it but leant his name to it in some way well then it is a publishing ripoff. If he did write it then it is time to stop, sorry!

    "My First My Last"

    This was my first Tom Clancy book and it will be my last. It was too long; it gave too much unnecessary information too far into the book. It also seemed like two different novels with a lot of events cramped into part 3. I got very little pleasure reading this book.

    Changed my thoughts on this book since I've realized it's part one of a trilogy; story = 4 stars.Wish Audible made this clear on their site.

    "Terrible book.... this is NOT Tom Clancy"

    I am a huge fan of Tom Clancy's novels... loved his authentic story telling and even his attention to detail. But this was obviously NOT written by Clancy. While the story was enough to keep me listening... I found myself groaning and rolling my eyes at the lame dialogue and the weak attempt at showing the characters inner turmoil. It would be interesting to see how many times he used the term "gasp" and how many instances of "balled his fist tight" there were.
    In addition the narrator did no favors with his over the top drama! If you want Clancy.. don't read this

    "Credit-worthy action with a great lead character"

    I've never read a Tom Clancy novel and think I am now a big fan. This book pulls absolutely no punches and the death toll is high but it's a great read.

    A character named Moore is an ex-Navy Seal gathering terrorist intelligence when he finds his way to Mexico to take down a major drug cartel leader. Both stories and a host of characters intertwine masterfully as we deal with loner Moore who's bad luck is everyone who surrounds themselves with him seem to die off.

    There aren't many plot secrets here, just action, reaction and the results afterward. The plot is strong, the writing stronger and I appreciated how the book didn't end with a slapped together happy ending.

    "Would have made a great movie"

    Tom Clancy does it again. Would go and watch the movie if Michael Bay and Jerry Bruckheimer put their heads together. My second audio book and I was impressed by Steven Webers very accurate impressions of the various dialects involved in the story which made it a joy to listen to. If you like good guys vs bad guy stories then this is for you.

    "Hard work and badly disjointed"

    This book was hard going from the start. It's full of cliches and as cheesy as hell. You have little or no empathy with the main character who is frankly no more than a knuckle headed misogynist dinosaur.

    "Was Tom Clancy alive when he "wrote" this book?"
    What disappointed you about Against All Enemies?

    Rubbish story: people dying for the sake of it; complicated plot for the sake of it; contradictions in the main character's psyche; no sense whatsoever of the true consequences of death or betrayal or torture... In short, this is a video game fantasy for low-IQ, kill-em-all males. It has NONE of the hallmarks of a Tom Clancy story. If this were a script, even Jean Claude Van Damme would reject it.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Tom Clancy and Peter Telep again?

    Tom Clancy, yes. I have listened and read everything by Tom Clancy going all the way back to the early 90's. Peter Telep needs to read some Tom Clancy too.


    Which character – as performed by Steven Weber – was your favourite?

    None of them. Steven Weber is a pretty good narrator though, insofar as he can drop in and out of different accents and convey emotion in all of them. But he has a really irritating tick...he does a little gasp before starting to read every line. That took me quite a while to 'stop hearing'.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No redeeming qualities. I came very close to returning it.

    "No stars really."

    I expected this to be exciting, thriller like. To be honest, I suppose it's been written to engage an audience who are wrapped up in the ins and outs of which exact gauge bullet is being loaded into the gun. I would prefer that the hero just shoots the villain, but the devil is in the detail and this slows the action down too much. If I hear the phrase 'eyes widen' once more I'll go mad. I felt this was repetitive and the hero couldn't save anybody. Almost all of his contacts are killed. Poor in a literary sense and not very exciting. My eyes did not widen.

    "Not what I was expecting"

    In short, I was really interested to see a new series based on a new lead character, but possibly a little naive that he could possibly strike a chord with me the way John Clarke (et. al.) did. I never give up on a book, print or audio, but I did with this one. It did start to get going eventually, but to be honest I would rather be engaged from the start and not have to endure. For me, the main character 'Max' was a bit all over the place. I suppose it could be a reach into non-polarising figures ( i.e not a hero, not an expert tactician but a little of everything) but the whole thing just didn't click with me. Tom Clancy is an expert in telling the one story from various characters and perspectives, and you always get the feeling that, while its not tied together from the start, or even 2/3 the way in, that it is building to something, and its a great ride along the way. For a long time this seemed to have no real direction, and by the point it started to go somewhere I had lost interest. It's ok, but if you want to get a Tom Clancy you dont have, get a classic, or if you have them all, wait for the next Clarke/Chaves installment. You wont miss this.

    This is the 4th Tom Clancy I've listened to and I've enjoyed them all, and whilst Steven Weber is a good narrator, I prefer Lou Diamond Phillips for these books. Highly recommended.

    "Another great listen!"

    I have spent the last 3 years working my way through every Tom Clancy audio book in order when I walk my dog! This book has carried on the action and suspense of the series of the books. I really enjoyed the plot in this book as it adds a new twist to the Ryan stories. I look forward to seeing how this progresses in the next Tom Clancy audio book.
