Inspired by true events, the story combines stunning combat sequences, up-to-the minute battlefield technology and heart-pumping emotion for the ultimate action adventure. Act of Valor takes listeners deep into the secretive world of the most elite, highly trained group of warriors in the modern world.

When the rescue of a kidnapped CIA operative leads to the discovery of a deadly terrorist plot against the U.S., a team of SEALs is dispatched on a worldwide manhunt.

    "Disjointed but worthwhile"

    I thought this could have been 2 or 3 books...The "missions" didn't tie well together. I loved getting a feel for what these guys o through and do on our behalf as part of our armed forces and am curious to see the movie. I would recommend this to a friend.

    "An Excellent Listen"
    Where does Tom Clancy Presents: Act of Valor rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    I've listened to a ton of Clancy, Coonts, and Cussler. This was a great story. Extremely fast-paced.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Gives a different take on the "Navy SEAL" stereotype. Nice to know SEALs are people too.


    Have you listened to any of Steven Weber???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Steven Weber is a great reader. Not exactly Scott Brick, but even Scott Brick wasn't always Scott Brick. Weber does a great job moving from character to character and accent to accent.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm sure I'll be disappointed when I get around to seeing the movie.

    Story
    "God Bless the USA !"
    What made the experience of listening to Tom Clancy Presents: Act of Valor the most enjoyable?

    From start to finish - this was an emotional ride. I found myself cheering and crying along with the story. There were periods when I had to pull over - to recover. It touches you heart and mind. To think that we as Americans are protected by such a class of warriors.

    Those who hate us - you are on notice! We are peaceful people, until we are pushed to defend what is ours.

    to sum this up - FANTASTIC !!!!!!!!!!!! God Bless the USA. God Bless our Troops!!!


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

    The story was gripping and the reader was able to bring forth the necessary emotions - Fantastic.


    What does Steven Weber bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He brings a fourth dimension - as in sight - the combination of the story and the narration create s a place - that allowed me to experience the depth and width of the emotions. I was with the Seals when they rode the truck, I was with them when the leader died, highs and lows - triumphs and losses all came together.


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

    All emotions were forthcoming and not easy to control. In the plane I had to literally restrain my emotions - in my car I could express my emotions fully. Had I done that in the plane from LAX to DC - I am sure I would have been arrested. However, I could not stop the tears.


    Any additional comments?

    I love this book.

    Story
    "This is not a suspence thriller"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I was expecting to read a thriller with lots of suspence instead Clancy told a story of how the Seals operate and how their work affects them and their families.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The ending is predictable and evokes emotion.


    Have you listened to any of Steven Weber’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I enjoy listening to his voice. He makes the story come alive.


    Did Tom Clancy Presents: Act of Valor inspire you to do anything?

    No, but then I am not an American.


    Any additional comments?

    Even though it was not what I expected, it was still an interesting read.

    "A MUST Read!!"
    Would you listen to Tom Clancy Presents: Act of Valor again? Why?

    I would most definitely listen to this novel again. With military action involved, you just can't catch it all the first time!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Roarke would be my favorite character...strong convictions and loyal to his men.


    Which character ??? as performed by Steven Weber ??? was your favorite?

    Weber performed all characters well but he really seemed to get "into" Noland & Roarke.


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

    The book is not a "laughing" type of book but I sure did cry! Anyone who is connected with the military, either past or present, couldn't help having a visceral reaction to this novel!


    Any additional comments?

    This novel is not just a "guy" novel. Ladies, give it a try!

    "Act of Valor, a credible story"
    Would you listen to Tom Clancy Presents: Act of Valor again? Why?

    Whilst I'm a one time listener only I found this book to be well written and able to keep my interest the whole way through. The narrator did a great job and offered plenty of oral inflection and drama to the story.


    What other book might you compare Tom Clancy Presents: Act of Valor to and why?

    Having just read the American Sniper I found this somewhat similar although the former is a true account of Kyle's time as a SEAL. Act of Valor no doubt portrays the type of mission these guys are into all over the world and I found the references to other notable events quite interesting in both books.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked the finale as it conjured up a great image of the guys going into battle in garbage trucks! The ensuing scenes were high action, high body count and the intensity of the battle came through in the author's writing.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I found the moments surrounding Rork's death and his partner finding out she had lost her husband particularly moving.


    Any additional comments?

    Whilst I was trying to work out the plot while listening to the book's credit I wasn't able to pick exactly what would happen until the final stages...great work.
