Threat Vector Audiobook

Threat Vector

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.

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.

    "Nice Easy Read"
    What did you love best about Threat Vector?

    This book is not as 'technical' as some of the other Clancy novels. It was an exciting and easy read!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jr.


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

    Lou was a positive part of the novel. His character representation was pretty much spot on.

    "The best Tom Clancy book in some time!"
    Where does Threat Vector rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would definitely put this in the Top 5 of all the books I've listened to in the past few years.


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

    This is the first time I have heard Lou Diamond Phillips narrate and I was pleasantly surprised. He does an excellent job keeping the dialogue flowing and varies the voices just enough so you know who's talking without it being overly dramatic or distracting.

    "So scary, it'll make you think"

    Like all of Tom Clancy's novel, this one is well researched, but it takes us into a new arena, cyber warfare. Threat Vector presents a scenario, so well done, and yet so scary, you'll think twice before sitting down to your computer.

    "Keeps you listening"

    Clancy and Phillips make a good team. Phillips doesn't have the voice ranges some of the other readers have when making characters come to life. He does make the story sound as if the main character is telling you what happened. Long story short, it's worth the listen...

    Story
    "Serviceable Clancy"

    You know how Clancy books (most books) go; someone is attacking the US, it looks bad, gets worse, the tide turns, the good guys win with only minor injuries via displays of brilliance and bravery. Jack Ryan and progeny come out shining like a rose.

    Knowing that going in, this book is serviceable, but not exceptional. Good plot line, fun locations, reasonable action, characters you know and love. Better for old time Clancy fans than for newbies trying their first (start with Patriot Games, or Without Remorse).

    Story
    "Clancy and Greaney are a good duo"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Threat Vector to be better than the print version?

    I am addicted to audio and seldom purchase anything in print.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I don't have one. After the release of the Teeth of the Tiger with a new set of characters Tom Clancy has breahed new life in his books.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I rarely have favorite scenes and usually view a book after I have completed it and able to absorb the total content.


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

    I do not have one after all the movies made from his books they speak for themselves.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope he continues to write with Mark Greaney and would recommend to anyone who has not listened to Mark's books to purchase one they will not be disappointed.

    Story
    "Diamond brilliant reading Clancy Classic"
    What made the experience of listening to Threat Vector the most enjoyable?

    This was a true Clancy novel. The story line of Jack Jr. is much more comfortable than previous novels.


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

    Plot was always changing but believable.


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

    Maybe it is from watching Phillips on the Military Channel but he seemed to be perfect fit.


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

    suspenseful


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait for the next one.

    "tough listen"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    So many sentence repeats, the narrator sounded like a comedian with a very distinctive, dry delivery. Cannot remember his name, kept thinking about this throughout the story. His other reads don't seem to affect me the same way

    Story
    "Absolutely HORRIBLE Naration"
    What did you like best about Threat Vector? What did you like least?

    Did not finish


    Would you be willing to try another book from Tom Clancy and Mark Greaney ? Why or why not?

    Yes, as long as the narration is improved


    What didn’t you like about Lou Diamond Phillips’s performance?

    His breathing during the narration ruins the book. I kept wondering when the next intake of breath would occur which over-powered my interest in the book. I put it away for another day, possibly, and will seriously reconsider listening to any book that he narrates.


    Was Threat Vector worth the listening time?

    Did not finish.
