Publisher's Summary

Act of Valor stars a group of active-duty Navy SEALs in a powerful story of contemporary global anti-terrorism. 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. As the valiant men of Bandito Platoon race to stop a coordinated attack that could kill and wound thousands of American civilians, they must balance their commitment to country, team and their families back home. Each time they accomplish their mission, a new piece of intelligence reveals another shocking twist to the deadly terror plot, which stretches from Chechnya to the Philippines and from Ukraine to Somalia. The widening operation sends the SEALs across the globe as they track the terrorist ring to the U.S.-Mexico border, where they engage in an epic firefight with an outcome that has potentially unimaginable consequences for the future of America.

    "took me there"
    If you could sum up Tom Clancy Presents: Act of Valor in three words, what would they be?

    Took me there


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

    I like to read each book independent of any others.


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

    I loved it


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

    At the picnic scene when the team all knew something was up but were trying to keep family out of the pain of them leaving again.


    Any additional comments?

    Didn't think I'd like a war story. This was way more than a war story. The scenes came to life as did the characters.

    Hell yeah! The book audio book was a step above the movie and thats hard to admit because the movie is very good.

    I enjoyed the entire book but if I had to pick a moment that was my favorite ut is when the Seals are rescuing the captured CIA agent.

    Well it is a verying moving book that gives you an uncanny look into the lives of the men who put their lives at risk for all us. Some pay the ulimate price..... The ending is very moving and it did stir up some emotions in me.

    "Predictable, but it entertained me."
    Any additional comments?

    A fairly weak, melodramatic, and atypical US Flag waving story, but entertaining nonetheless.

    The narration was pretty good, but could use some work on the cadence. The voice matched well to the type of story.

    Story
    "LOVE Steven Weber"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Tom Clancy Presents: Act of Valor to be better than the print version?

    While fascinating, a lot of description of complicated machinery, technical specifications, and performance optimization was presented in this book. It was made palatable by the narrator. A tiny smattering of the complexities of our national defense and what goes on behind the scenes is unveiled in this book. Truly interesting. I didn't get the sense of knowing and appreciating the characters, but all in all a good read (listen).
    Steven Weber, from the old "Wings" sitcom, is a fantastic narrator. I will continue to seek out his narrations.


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

    Technical jargon. He sounds excited and enthused and proud when presenting the type of information that would be hard to follow otherwise. Maybe he could help me understand Chemistry and Algebra - he's that good!!

    Story
    "I Got Chills"
    What made the experience of listening to Tom Clancy Presents: Act of Valor the most enjoyable?

    Just knowing that some of this is probably true gave the story validity.


    What did you like best about this story?

    To keep the story realistic, someone has to get injured and/or die but it never happens when you expect or to whom you expect.


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

    Maybe not extreme but it made me think about the liberties I enjoy and why I am able to enjoy them.
