What the Critics Say

"Clancy's latest novel traces the financial, political, military, and personal machinations that drive America into the next major global war.... a shocker climax so plausible you'll wonder why it hasn't yet happened. (Entertainment Weekly)

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    Story
    "The most exciting/suspenseful Jack Ryan novel!"

    In Clancy's 1994 release of Debt of Honor Jack Ryan goes from retired CIA agent the president's National Security Adviser as the US is in deep trouble. The VP is then forced to resign and the president names Jack Ryan VP. Immediately, the same evening, a Japanese pilot angry with the US fries a jumbo jet into the US capital during the State of the Union speech killing the president and most members of the US. Ryan and his family escape. He is now President Jack Ryan!

    "Story was stead fast... Reading... Well..."

    Love the book, but the reading hurt. Through the series, worst so far but gets better as you listen. Guy is just too robotic. Sorry bud... I said it.

    Tom, book is an ace. Love it as always. Already downloaded the balance of series and will listen to as soon as I post this.

    "Poor narration "

    If you like Michael Prichard you won't like this one. Hard to follow, monotone, almost computer generated, poor inflection.

    "Read by a Frog"

    I sure wish they'd let us rate narrators separately from the writers. Some reviews say it has bad sound engineering, but honestly I just don't hear a faulty recording. I hear a guy with a croak for a voice.

    And honestly I find it annoying when someone can't pronounce America towns' names correctly, but has an overzealous flair for French words.

    I enjoy counter-terrorism, westerns, historical fiction, detective mysteries, and old school comedy like "A Christmas Story".

    Story
    "Loved this long novel flying 14 hours to Manila"

    This is another long overdue review. Flew to Manila for the XMAS holidays and listened to this audiobook 2 times. Clancy weaves such complex plots that it actually takes me 2 readings to get the most out of his novels. Clancy stands alone when it comes to adding extra's to his counter terrorism novels. Those extras include rich history and political science: be it Asia, Eastern Europe or the Middle East. Clancy also provides wonderful description of military weapons: whether aircraft carriers, submarines, fixed or rotary aircraft, tanks or the latest small arms weapons. His knowledge seems unequaled to all other writers when it comes to military science. I loved this story. Enjoy.

    Story
    "A Big Tip & Thank You To Another Reviewer"
    Would you listen to Debt of Honor again? Why?

    Yes


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I hope.


    Any additional comments?

    I actually haven't listened to the book yet, but was forced to "review it" in order to give you this tip.

    Another reviewer remarked about the "slowness" of the speaker & he/she said it was an easy fix. If you are using an Apple product, you merely speed up the Audiobook under the Settings. Wow, it worked! OK, so many of you guys already knew that, but I am PC based. But for all the complainers, I wish they had changed their iPods, lol.

    audio books are Theater of the Mind when done right. They lift words from a page written by an author and transport you into another world

    Story
    "Honor is what Tom Clancy does for story telling"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I highly recommend the entire Jack Ryan series to everyone and all of Tom Clancy's works
    for that matter. In this story he shows what having debt and what economic conditions can due to the entire world and he makes it so real and so believable full of action and adventure as only the Mind of Tom Clancy can give.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Debt of Honor?

    To many moments to just pick one


    What does John MacDonald bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    at first I thought he sounded like a computer voice mail but that soon passed and I think he is one of the best story tellers to date. The way he does the characters and how he can hold you into the story is very good


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    with any great story teller if you don't feel something like this then it is not a good story or they a good teller and Tom Clancy is a master of his craft so this story makes you feel all sorts of things


    Any additional comments?

    Everyone that loves a great suspense, action drama and political thriller needs to listen and or read Debt of Honor.

    Story
    "Draggy"
    If you could sum up Debt of Honor in three words, what would they be?

    Good story and plot. but he drags it out to to much, Clancy's way. he has not learned youcan say more with fewer words.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    most intrerestimg? Are we gonna let Japan kick out hineys.


    What about John MacDonald’s performance did you like?

    good narrator


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no. is to long


    Any additional comments?

    Clancy needs to learn to get to heart of matter..not keep building supsense, cos it fails, and you are left with an overly long book even though is a good book is to lenghty.
