Dr Mr.Clancey I am a big fan of yours,but it just seems like you were just strugling trying to get this story out and you fai)ed,I'm sorry to be critical it's just not your best work, getting ready to start on another of your novels . I'm looking forward to it. Thanks, David L email@example.com
On the negative side, there was just a few too many easy resolutions for Jr. And Sr. In this book. Knowing this genre well, I would expect this, but a little more difficulty for the protagonists would have gone a long way.
On the positive, having two stories running in parallel and connecting them through a common set of characters was brilliant. The development of one character in particular was extremely fun to watch. I could not wait to get in the car or on the tractor (yes tractor, not everyone lives in the burbs) to listen to the next chapter. I am looking forward to the next book in the series.
Lou Diamond Phillips nails the Clancy Books and characters. His British sounds a little Aussie, but over all he is a fantastic performer for these books and characters.
I'm glad to see the Jack Ryan Series continue. Great story and an even better narration. Worth the credit.
If anything, Lou Diamond Phillips makes this shine!!
Although the parallel story line of "present day" and "30 years earlier" is a great blend of classic Jack Ryan and Jack Jr.
Overall, very enjoyable.
A great continuation of the story line tying in some classic Jack Ryan with some Jack Ryan Jr. As always, Lou Diamond Phillips performance brings the characters to life.
Lou Diamond Phillips does a great job bringing the characters to life.
Action packed. A bit slow after a quick start, but momentum builds again until you can't stop listening.

In many ways, this dual plot line is confusing but appropriate. It's like the official handing over of the character reins from Ryan to his son, and sadly from Tom Clancy (RIP 2013) to his apparent heir and quite competent Mark Greaney.
As the series evolves, I hope that Greaney will see the advantage of strong and plot active female characters. The series has occasionally done this in the past, and modern warfare now allows for those female roles to be present.
Military fiction with great tech and fight/battle scenes.
