"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)
Too much finance and too much politics! I cannot believe this was a Tom Clancy novel. It took until part 2 for something exciting to happen and then it still went down hill from there.
A typical Tom Clancy novel, great story with good characters that help build the Jack Ryan persona.
No, the plot kept me intrigued but it is not a "cliff hanger" type story.
No, if I did not know the Clancy novels I would have insisted on a refund by the end of the prologue. Either MacDonald or the recording / transfer has reduced the experience. Very disappointing but I'm not prepared to take another chance on MacDonald.
I disagree with the previous reviewers that the narrator sounds like a computer. This is not true. his enunciation isn't good enough. It was really hard to adjust to after listening to
Classic Clancy! Jack Ryan, John Clark, and Ding Chavez. Three of my favorite fictional characters.
Scott Brick was great in the earlier books, but Armand Schultz, or Dick Hill could have done a great job as well.
Sure, it helps me to occupy brain power when doing menial tasks (like driving, and having heart to heats with my wife)
Not horrible, but not quite good,
I would recommend someone READ a hard copy of this book if this is the only audio version available. Great story, as usual from Clancy, poor robotic, monotone narration. It has been a struggle to pay attention.
this one is hard to listen to.
The guy speeds up and slows down at random, no emotion or change in voice.
Bring back Scott Brick or Michael Prichard.
I could not get past the first few minutes because the reader was too dull. Sounded robotic and stiff. Like my GPS. Book however was great in print. Get it that way instead.

Yet another great listen. If he was piad by the word he would be a billionair for each is a gem
