This was a slow ramp with ma speedy ending the ddescriptions were fantastic the history was impeccable but I found myself wanting more action even at the ending. All in all a wonderful read and a wonderful story.
I simply loved it. So timely and on point. I could not stop listening. The back and forth with Sr. and Jr. wove the story together
Great real time story, but disconcerting by continually flipping back and forth 30 years to tell parts of both Jack Ryan and his father. got confusing.
Great disappointment, really. Perhaps I should just put "The Hunt for Red October" and "Red Star Rising" and the rest of the early Clancy's out of mind, but I was hoping that "the last novel he wrote (co-wrote, apparently) before he died" would be worth more. Jack Jr. is just not as good a character as his dad, and this book is so fascinated with the not-so-intriguing detals of "international finance" (page after boring page) that it made my eyes glaze over (ears, actually). A little action, but neither makes it as an action-genre or an international spy-genre vehicle. I plodded through, but the kiss of death was that I could frequently find my attention lapsing and realizing I had not heard the last five minutes. Not the kind of excitement in an audible book I crave or expect.
Jack Ryan...Sr. and Jr. Junior acting remarkably his young father.
The looking back device was necessary for the storyline but it wasn't handled very well.
The situation in the Ukraine going on now- yet Clancy told the story before it happened.
The storyline and its relevance to current events.
Jack Ryan Sr
I always want to listen to Clancy novels in one sitting.
I used to be a big Tom Clancy/Jack Ryan fan, but fell off the Jack Ryan bandwagon after Executive Orders. Looking for a juicy series to sink my teeth into, I went back to Jack and discovered Jack Jr and The Campus. Now I'm hooked all over again. Devoured half a dozen in the last few weeks and have been anxiously awaiting the newest release.
