Publisher's Summary

A terrorist bomb explodes during a South Korean celebration of the anniversary of the election of its first president.

Alarms are raised in Washington. No one is claiming responsibility.

The first suspect is North Korea. Could it be making a power play against South Korea and unification? If so, how will the U.S. respond? Paul Hood, Director of the Op-Center, must answer these questions. The Op-Center, a largely autonomous new agency which takes on the government's toughest security problems, is only six months old, and has never been given a foreign crisis until now.

Hood's team, which includes a general, a former ambassador, a psychologist, and a computer specialist, tries to find the solution, only to discover a factor that could change the new world order.

From the Compact Disc edition.

    "Excellent listen"

    This was my first Tom Clancy book I've listened to, and loved it. It was difficult at times to try and remember the pile of cast members, and the jumping around style took me a while to get used to, but after a while, the style seemed tight and clear. The reader, Michael Kramer is incredible . .either he's incredible, or they actually used 5 or so different people doing the voices.

    The story was full of the action I heard Tom Clancy was so well known for, and I felt like the story balanced and pulled together each of the story lines together nicely.

    It's 4 stars only because I had to concentrate while listening, and had to backup all the time and re-listen to sections :-)

    "It's okay"

    The narration was a little drab. I guess I just got used to Lou Diamond Phillips as a narrator in the later stories.

    Story
    "Story is classic Clancy, superb, the naration -10"
    What did you love best about Tom Clancy's Op-Center?

    The story lines are always marvelous in a Clancy story and this one is no exception.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Tom Clancy's Op-Center?

    Mr. Hood talking with his about a video game & comic books.


    What didn’t you like about Michael Kramer’s performance?

    NOT ONE THING ! I turned it off several times, his reading is enough to make me look 3 times before I get another book with his lack of everything. Rather like nails on a chalkboard and detrimental to the story.

    "Remarkable read, and great storyline "

    Once again Tom Clancy shows why he is the king of black ops. I for one wish the United States actually had a operations center like this. Michael Kramer did an excellent job bringing me into the story and painting a picture of the surroundings. Highly recommend reading this series of books.

    Story
    "Annoying narration"
    What would have made Tom Clancy's Op-Center better?

    A different narrator.


    What was most disappointing about the authors’s story?

    The narrators voice.


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Michael Kramer?

    Anyone who doesn't 'ask a question' in the middle of and at the end of most sentences. Infuriating vocal habit.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Can't say, couldn't bear to listen to more than 45 minutes.


    Any additional comments?

    Only stuck it out for the first 45 minutes, before the narrators irritating voice sent me screaming for the off switch!

    "Huge fan of the books, now a fan of Michael Kramer"

    I have read all of Tom Clancy's book and I have to say I really like the style of Michael Kramer. Good tone of voice, easy to listen to but knows how to to drama when the moment needs it.



    As for thebook, not Clancy's best but Op Center does become a very good series if you like style and are taking a break from all things Jack Ryan. This book sets up characters that you will like, loath and follow over the next few books.
