    "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.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    No more Tom Clancy Presents books for me. Reading this book is like going out with somebody that only talks about how super they are. All the time, non-stop. Boring. Weak Plot, Every Cliche line at least 3 times a page.............

    "Good action, Good story"
    Where does Tom Clancy Presents: Act of Valor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's not a very complex book, but still it packs a lot of action, and a peek to the life of SEAL teams.


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

    It's sort of a grey man book, a fun to read not complex.

    Story
    "Marginal"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    someone without actual military experience


    What was most disappointing about Dick Couch and George Galdorisi ’s story?

    the story was mostly fine though the characters were portrayed much differently than all of the special forces people I have known


    What aspect of Steven Weber’s performance would you have changed?

    the character dialog was not believable.


    What character would you cut from Tom Clancy Presents: Act of Valor?

    none


    Any additional comments?

    all I can say is I have known many special forces personnel. I certainly don't diminish anything at all about there actual acts of valor, however, the way the story was read and the people were portrayed was simply not in keeping with what I personally have experienced.

    "A bit predictable"
    Would you listen to Tom Clancy Presents: Act of Valor again? Why?

    yes, it was a good story.


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

    in the fight scenes yes, but the ending was quite predicable.


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

    He avoided the he said she said to the point you really felt that the characters were real


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

    no

    "Well written, well read, exciting."

    As always, Clancy has written a taut, thrilling read, full of action and believable characters. Steven Weber's performance was wonderful and brought the characters alive. I appreciate the fact that Clancy's books always reflect reality, in that life is rarely tied up in a pretty bow at the end.
    I highly recommend Audible's Act of Valor to anyone, who likes Clancy's books and enjoys being read aloud to.

    "it was OK but no Clancy"
    What did you like best about Tom Clancy Presents: Act of Valor? What did you like least?

    I enjoyed Clancy's much deserved recognition to the SEALs but I felt it was too much wrapping oneself in the flag. It's one thing to be patriotic, which I believe one should be but its another to almost alwasy dismiss the other elite units in the world that are as good as the SEALs! Overall, I enjoyed the story and I tought it was well written. What I liked the least was the fact that I was expecting a Clancy-like story and that was not quite the case.


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

    Good, finally something that comes close to reality!


    Did Steven Weber do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes, each character had its own personality and they were easy to discern from one another


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes,

    "Non stop action. One of the best for my money"

    Almost from the first sentence therre was non stop action. Really a mans book if that is what you enjoy. Very little in the way of side stories which so many books do that have very little bearing in the subject matter. Hardily recommended.
