I am single, retired and enjoy gardening. I don't have the discipline to sit and read a book. Audio books are such a blessing to me.
I couldn't get involved with the story because of the constant back and forth of the past and the present times. It was too confusing for me to keep it all straight.
None of the characters had any excitement to them.
I have never read Tom Clancy before, but because Mark Greaney and the Gray Man were such a favorite of mine, I expected this book to be more action packed and to have super heros. There were none. If there are any Gray Man fans out there, I suggest you pass on this book.
I would get another book by Tom Clancy. I did not care for the narrator. He reads much too fast. Michael pritchard is *perfect* for Clancy novels.
But with that said he does an exceptional job at accents and dialects. He should take lessons from Michael Pritchard on reading a Tom Clancy novel.
Yes I would.
People have to understand this is NOT a Clancy novel. Mark Greaney did all the heavy lifting and Clancy put his name and nothing more on it. Anyone that has read/listened to earlier Clancy novels will realize immediately it was written by someone else. It's a good story in it's own right, but it's not a Tom Clancy novel.
Cold War now.
I always like John Clarke - he embodies the hero that we all need/want. I love it when the US cavalry charges in!
I don't know if this was my favorite, but the scene where the jets come in over the safe house and scare the mob is classic. And of course the pilots are having fun as they safe their colleagues!
yes, but unfortunately I could not do this.
As always, Lou Diamond Phillips does an excellent job of conveying the story.
Not written it.
No. The weak story and the main characters totally unrealistic.
Disappointment. Found it hard to actually complete the listen.
Relevant, Current, Continuation
I'm about 1/2 way through this book. It is scary how close to current events this book runs.
Specific, action, exciting
For the most part not as much as the other books written by this same author
Yes all of the other Clancy books, Phillips is great reading the parts especially this one which had lot of Russian accents he had to do
No not really, not that type of book
Very good book, however my least favorite from this series, lots of business technical talk etc. But is was a good ending to the series until the next one comes out
This book is great, but in a real way Tom Clancy must have seen the future because so much of what he has said in this book seems to be taking place in the real world. I hope Mark Greaney keeps Jack Ryan and everyone else in this world alive.
Command Authority & Threat Vector were so good I decided to go back and read Cardinal of the Kremlin. I have read some of Clancy's earlier novels enjoyed some but gave up on later novels as to much data, subplots that were difficult to follow and were confusing, just very difficult to follow and boring at times that lead to skimming. After several hours of listening to Cardinal I realized how much Greaney improved upon Clancy's work. I gave up on Cardinal for the reasons above... Greaney's addition to the Clancy franchise has done away with all that I disliked about Clancy's style. I highly recommend these two novels and hope you enjoy the action, concise subplots, and the characters that continue to amaze and entertain...
Too close to reality.
It certainly kept my attention! It was so true to life, I realize it was fiction, but not too far off our current reality.
I don't know, I just read the whole think on Kindle.
It was definitely suspenseful. I thought the President's son's activity was a bit over the top,but who cares, when reading fiction we should be able to "suspend disbelief"
Right after I finished reading I turned on the news and saw the book being shown in real life with the blazzing fires from the protesters and the warring in Urkraine with their people fighting to keep their freedom instead of being sucked back into Russian style of life.
60 year old geologist, standup surfer and father of 6, Closet writer hope to be some day
I love audio books and Tom Clancy is one of my favorites.In the written format he is hard to follow some time but in audio I can hit the 30 sec back and catch it all
the scene where Jack Ryan jr goes up to oxly's falt
Thoroughly enjoyable starts off a little slow but I like the character development and the story line
