Threat Vector | [Tom Clancy, Mark Greaney]

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.

    "A great reading of a fantastic story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Great action, and a stellar performance by Lou Diamond Phillips


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

    This is my second time to hear LDP perform, and I have to say I am somewhat amazed by his incredible talent. From my brief previous exposure to him I never knew he had such depth of performance; his character voices are right on the money. He is quickly becoming my favorite narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    Pet Peeve - This is the UNABRIDGED version of this book; so many other reviewers are complaining about the length\detail of this reading. I would suggest the abridged version for those who don't want as much detail, but IMHO it is unfair to buy the lengthiest version of a book then criticize it for being "too long" as though the author has done something wrong. For my taste, I appreciate the unabridged versions and the hard work and detail that goes into them.

    "What a Team"

    These are some pretty heavy hitting authors, along with an excellent reader. Chinese cyber warfare is the backdrop for this cyber terror novel…though the US doesn't mind some good old fashioned bombs in the end, either.

    Lots of action. I'd definitely put this into the category of a good read for a long car trip as the action won't have you daydreaming or dozing off.

    "Just Great!!!"

    The collaboration of Mark Greaney with Tom Clancy has made for a very tight concise action packed novel. If you have read some of Clancy's earlier works you know he is a master at plots, sub plots, and bringing them all together at the end. I found in Clancy's later works that the plot, sub plots became wrapped up in Minutiae, information in such detail that skimming would not detract from the plot. I could not finish some of his later works, too slow, too VOLUMINOUS... In Threat Vector you find none of that, just a great action pack story with the sub plots you come to expect and characters that just jump off the page with realism... Hopefully Command Authority will be as good... Highly recommended. The narration is super!!!!

    "A good thriller; Phillips isn't for me"
    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I guess I'm weird, because the way Lou Diamond takes a quick little breath before each sentence was very distracting to me, and just about drove me batty. After a few minutes of each listening session I started to disregard it and focus on the story, but for a while I was annoyed almost to the point of turning off the recording.

    since there is no way to mark books as read in the library I thought this might be a way to mark them

    "Lou Diamond just didn't do it justice"
    What made the experience of listening to Threat Vector the most enjoyable?

    Lou and some of the content made it mind numbing at times. I am a huge Clancy fan... But this one missed it.


    If you’ve listened to books by Tom Clancy and Mark Greaney before, how does this one compare?

    The narration was a bit eh... Also they tend to get really long and boring in setting up some of the characters. Actually made the book boring. I guess I just need to stick to Clancy classics.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Different narrator


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No

    "Back on Target"

    I am always a little wary when I see a book written by some famous author "with" someone else and wonder just how much of the the former we are getting. I have been disappointment with the last few Tom Clancy books I have read and so bought this with not very high expectations. The Reader is good although as normal some of the American pronunciations make me wince or smile but than it its and American book so to complain of and American reading it would seem a little churlish . The story however is right back on form and reminds me much more of the earlier Ryan novels. I have always enjoyed Clancy's level of detail and slow unwinding or plot mixed in with the compelling action. This seems to be right back on form. I still prefer the earlier Ryan books but am now looking forward to the next with some anticipation.

    "Only four stars because ...."

    This story gets off to a interesting start. I personally think that this one is more like the earlier Ryan books. Though I have to admit apathy towards Ryan Jr's lady love.



    I will return to once I get to the end and post a full review but so far its worth the money spent on it. Great entertainment whilst cooking Sunday lunch!

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

    This could happen


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

    Great narration, he uses his acting skills to bring the characters to life

    "Very predictable"

    I'm not a marine or spy but I do work keyboard and mouse for living and I was very disappointed in poor knowledge of industrial IT. The story was exciting until author started heavily underestimate the enemy, then everything started to be very predictable and no fun to listen any more.

    One star for first part of the book.
