Publisher's Summary

Jack Ryan has only just moved back into the Oval Office when he is faced with a new international threat. An aborted coup in the People's Republic of China has left President Wei Zhen Lin with no choice but to agree with the expansionist policies of General Su Ke Quiang. They have declared the South China Sea a protectorate and are planning an invasion of Taiwan. The Ryan administration is determined to thwart China’s ambitions, but the stakes are dangerously high as a new breed of powerful Chinese anti-ship missiles endanger the US Navy's plans to protect the island.

Meanwhile, Chinese cyber-warfare experts have launched a devastating attack on American infrastructure. It's a new combat arena, but it’s every bit as deadly as any that has gone before. Jack Ryan, Jr., and his colleagues at the Campus may be just the wild card that his father needs to stack the deck. There's just one problem: someone knows about the off-the-books intelligence agency and threatens to blow their cover sky high.

    Story
    "Did no one educate this guy on his pronunciations?"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Threat Vector to be better than the print version?

    No.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Threat Vector?

    As precise and technically correct Clancy's work usually is, the pronunciations of almost every Turkish term is way, way off. Did no one tell him how to pronounce Gatatasaray or Besiktas, etc. Cmon.


    Did Lou Diamond Phillips do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes, as always... except for the pronunciations.


    Any additional comments?

    Typical Clancy. Great suspense. Page turner. Liberals are all evil.

    Story
    "Underworld of war."
    What did you like best about Threat Vector? What did you like least?

    I did listen to the end but it was almost difficult for my follow all ends end odds of everybody. Jet, I did and think I got it all, well almost all.


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

    The plot is complex and many threads laid all over the world almost and it kept my tension awake but not quite on the edge of my seat, no.


    Have you listened to any of Lou Diamond Phillips’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I honestly don't remember if I have listen to him before, but he is good and I would listen to him again for sure.


    Was Threat Vector worth the listening time?

    Well, I have to say it might have been shorter for my liking at least.

    Story
    "Classic Clancy"
    If you could sum up Threat Vector in three words, what would they be?

    Exciting, Interesting, fast-paced. ( They ask for three words yet tell me I have to have a minimum of 15 words?)


    What other book might you compare Threat Vector to and why?

    All of the other Clancy books.


    Have you listened to any of Lou Diamond Phillips’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    As I may have stated in previous reviews, I am amazed at his talent. I never really liked his acting, but his storytelling is top notch.


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

    China is at it again!

    "Totally Hooked"

    Just discovered The Campus and Jack Jr and have been devouring the series. Threat Vector was outstanding and primed me to go directly into the next "installment."

    Story
    "The Campus is under threat!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes just because it is Tom Clancy and you can never go wrong with a Clancy novel.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jack Ryan Junior is my favourite character as he is a brilliant analyst and isn't afraid to get his hands dirty.


    Have you listened to any of Lou Diamond Phillips’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes and his narration of the Jack Ryan Junior novels is excellent.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was a shame that the Campus had to temporarily shut down but you they will be back.

    Story
    "Awesome."
    What did you love best about Threat Vector?

    I am a huge Tom Clancy, Jack Ryan, and John Kelly fan. Not able to narrow down from there.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way it mirrors current events in the World.


    What does Lou Diamond Phillips bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    At first, I didn't think Lou Diamond Phillips could do justice to the characters, but he does have a surprising range of accents to keep the story flowing smoothly.


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

    Clark is back.

    Story
    "Much Better Than 'Locked On'"

    Threat Vector leaves behind all the political polemic and unnecessary detail of "Locked On" and follows better the Clancy recipe for action. Some parts are a little difficult to "suspend belief" enough to accept although they are key to the overall plot (for example, the "Melanie" subplot - how can someone be incredibly smart and incredibly stupid at the same time?). I also miss how the older novels were always 5 or so years in the future where the next generation of technology was available, but all-in-all a good action novel. Lou Diamond Philips does his, as always, excellent job. He makes the characters and action come alive.

    Story
    "Classic Clancy- questionable narrator"
    What made the experience of listening to Threat Vector the most enjoyable?

    The story line is suspenseful and relevant.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator swings back and forth from giving characters accents- sometimes they have them, sometime they don't. And his accents are horrible. His breathy "female" voices all sound the same.

    "Predictable but entertaining"

    When you buy one of these stories, you probably know what you are going to get up front. You have an expectation. The book does not disappoint. The story is fast paced and holds your interest. If you like this kind of book, you will like this book I think.

    Story
    "Classic Clancy"
    What did you love best about Threat Vector?

    A good foundation was built for the story to unfold on. This was classic Clancy and reminded me of Debt of Honor and Bear and the Dragon. Decently fast-paced and you didn't get the feel that parts were drawn out.


    What about Lou Diamond Phillips’s performance did you like?

    I thought it was good but I wish I hadn't read the reviews which complained about his sharp breath intakes because there were times that I tended to fixate on it and I honestly don't know if I would have even noticed if I hadn't been "forewarned". It was worse at times than others. Only time I got annoyed was when he kept saying H-U-D rather than just saying hud.


    Any additional comments?

    Worth the time and credit.
