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)

    Story
    "Good story, somewhat fragmented at first "

    All the parts finally come together but it takes a while, and at least one character gets fairly well developed and then never comes up again (the VP's rape victim). I found my mind wandering at times with the Clancy tendency for excessive details.

    There were some weird quality problems with the recording, too (gaps-skips), that I have never encountered, but that could be my phone, I suppose.

    As some reviewers have noted, the narrator is mechanical but I got used to it. By the end of the story, I ordered the next book, so it was good enough to get me to finish it and want more.

    "Great story but..."

    Excellent story but the narration was so mechanical I didn't think I would finish the book. When I adjusted the speed of narration to 1.5x I didn't notice the robotic voice as much, and that let me continue listening.

    Story
    "Best listened to at x1.25 speed."

    The narrator sounds like a robot.

    The story is slow to build, but it ends with bang.

    "Could be today's news"

    I felt this book was to close to what might happen but gives me the knowledge that America would go on no matter what

    "I was falling asleep"

    Slow story progression. Good overall story. Too much explanation for the amount of story. I still liked it.

    "A robotic narration of a wonderful book."

    An unfortunate performance, especially following Scott Bricks spirited performance of the prior book in the series.

    "Great book; narrator was too mechanical."

    I enjoyed the book but the narrator made it difficult to listen to, especially during the early chapters.

    "Good Book, difficult narrator"

    The story was great, but the narrator was very robotic. Tried to listen to it once before and stopped after about an hour. I put up with the reading because it of the storyline.

    Story
    "Great Story, very well read"
    Where does Debt of Honor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book is near the top of the Audible books, John MacDonald does a great job of distinguishing the characters with very different accents, voice inflections and style of read. The story, is of course, great. I am a big Clancy fan, have been for years.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    John Clark is as always my favorite character.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There are so many, but probably when Clark and Ding are meeting with the local Russian counterpart for the first time.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    An old enemy, now an ally. An old ally, now an enemy.
