    "WOW!!! Tom Clancy has done it again!!"
    Where does Tom Clancy Presents: Act of Valor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have always been a huge fan of Tom Clancy's books especially the Jack Ryan Series, and as a verteran of the armed forces and having had MANY relatives in the service of our country, this is a very powerful story and can even open the eyes of those hardened veterans. I would have to say that if you are a veteran or even active duty and do not at least well up with emotion toward the end of this book you need to re-read it again you missed something!!! Bravo Tom Clancy!!! Bravo!!!! Cant wait to catch the movie!!!!

    "get out your olive drab hankie"
    Would you listen to Tom Clancy Presents: Act of Valor again? Why?

    Yes, absolutely! It was a pleasure to read about heroes that are not obsessed with booze, sluts, or obscenities. Heroes that can care about each other, their families, and their country. In my experience, these men and women are a more accurate portrayal of real Special Operations warriors than many found in fiction today. I have recommended this book to more people than any other I have read since A Prisoner of Birth.

    "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.
