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
    "Great Story, Narrator from Slumberland"
    What did you love best about Debt of Honor?

    A typical Tom Clancy novel, great story with good characters that help build the Jack Ryan persona.


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

    No, the plot kept me intrigued but it is not a "cliff hanger" type story.


    Would you be willing to try another one of John MacDonald’s performances?

    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.

    Story
    "Great book, horrible narrator"
    What did you like best about Debt of Honor? What did you like least?

    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


    What did you like best about this story?

    Classic Clancy! Jack Ryan, John Clark, and Ding Chavez. Three of my favorite fictional characters.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of John MacDonald?

    Scott Brick was great in the earlier books, but Armand Schultz, or Dick Hill could have done a great job as well.


    Was Debt of Honor worth the listening time?

    Sure, it helps me to occupy brain power when doing menial tasks (like driving, and having heart to heats with my wife)


    Any additional comments?

    Not horrible, but not quite good,

    "LISTEN before purchasing rights!!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    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.

    "a computer would sound more life like"
    Would you try another book from Tom Clancy and/or John MacDonald?

    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.

    "Narration was awful"

    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.
