Publisher's Summary

Newly elected, Jack Ryan has found that being President is not easy: domestic pitfalls await him at every turn; there's a revolution in Liberia; the Asian economy is going down the tubes; and now, in Moscow, someone may have tried to assassinate the chairman of the SVR - the former KGB - with a rocket-propelled grenade. Were the potential assassins political enemies, the Russian Mafia, or disaffected former KGB? Or is something far more dangerous at work here? While Ryan dispatches his most trusted eyes and ears, including black ops specialist John Clark, to find out the truth of the matter, forces in China are moving ahead with a plan of truly audacious proportions. If they succeed, the world will never look the same again.

    "This is a great book"

    This story is about Russia, China, and the USA , human rights and the treatment of citizens...a whole lot of history, and predictions for the future.
    The story highlights ... Greed, a country on the fringe of becoming economically stable, and unusuall alliances ... Something here for all readers...lots of emotional flares... And vulnerablity by strong people.
    Worth a credit any day
    Michael Prichard turns in a great job reading

    "So Foul"

    Clancy writes a great story but this one is so full of foul language and terms like Jap, Chink, etc. that I'm finding it difficult to overlook the ugliness and stay focused on the plot. Disappointed. Even though the plot is good I'm only giving it 3 stars.

    "Watch what you listen (the order that is)"

    Audible would do well to let us all know when you select a book if there are ones that you should have heard first. I got the series out of order which was confusing. That being said, a great book and a long listen

    Story
    "Literally Preachy"

    Not my favorite Tom Clancy by a mile. Now I know why this was somewhat obscure. Without giving away a major story theme - too much time was spent on that point. Yes, the antagonist country is evil because of this practice but I didn't pick the book to be lectured on the subject.

    "Good Listen – Minus the Sub-par Narrator"

    The reader does not understand how to utilize inflection. He got it wrong every time someone addressed someone else.

    Story
    "A good read. Not all over the map."
    Where does The Bear and the Dragon rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the better books in the Jack Ryan series. Clancy tended to be all over the map in most of the books, but then I buy the unabridged. Most of the book takes place in Russia. Clancy seems to have had a liking of Russia and Russian names.


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

    There was some suspense, but I wouldn't say I was on the edge of my seat. I did stay up later than I should have during some parts.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Probably when the old Russian sniper kills the Chinese general.


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

    The taking of Russia.
