    "good book, but disappointing abridgement"

    The story's great, the narrator is very good, but the abridgement is disappointing (although someone who has not read the book would probably enjoy this abridgement, despite the fact that many of the best characterization bits are missing). The completely unnecessary musical interludes are horrible - very melodramatic, corny, quite distracting.

    "Patriot Games"

    If you like Tom Clancy this is a terrible abridgement. It leaves all the important parts out.

    "Excellent On All Counts"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Anybody who is an action adventure or Tom Clancy fan should enjoy this book, which is non-stop action in a realistic context.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jack Ryan is a main character in a series of Clancy books. The character is real, human, and personable, with a family and children. He is an unlikely hero who always finds himself in situations where he comes to the rescue.


    Which character – as performed by Martin Sheen – was your favorite?

    I have always enjoyed Martin Sheen's voice. In this case, he performs all the characters well, but I particularly enjoy his characterization of the main character, Jack Ryan.
