    Where does Command Authority rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    middle


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Didn't really have one.


    What three words best describe Lou Diamond Phillips’s performance?

    Stop doing accents.


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

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Given what a stickler Clancy was about details down to the material on gun stocks and things like that I think it's pretty funny that Junior and Dom can basically become Tier 1 special forces operators with like 3 years experience at the Campus. Driscoll is believable but I must have missed the part in the series where the other 2 become interchangeable with Delta.

    Final fight at the hotel is near Rainbow Six quality excitement.

    Any additional comments?

    Another installment in the Jack Ryan series (both senior and now junior), this book picks up where the last left off. Scrambling to find a new base of operations after their last was compromised by the Chinese, the members of the campus split up and lay low. Jack Ryan junior takes a job in London as a financial analyst and quickly becomes involved in a case involving Russia's state owned oil company Gazprom. John Clark and the other members of the operations unit become interested in Russia's largest crime syndicate, which has set up shop in the Ukraine, and fly to Kiev where they offer their assistance to the CIA station chief. Meanwhile, President Jack Ryan (senior) is involved in diplomacy trying to keep Russian forces from invading the Crimea region of Ukrainia. Additionally, President Ryan flashes back 30 years, when he was a CIA analyst investigating rumours of a KGB operative involved in assassinations.All these characters actions converge and the result is a very good novel. Lou Diamond Phillips does an excellent job in his narration, providing character accents and emotions which add to the quality of the story.If you liked the previous Jack Ryan novels then you will like this one as well. If you have never read the previous novels in the series, this one can still be enjoyed as a stand alone story. However, I recommend reading the books in order as the character development becomes deeper as the novels proceed. The first book in the series, "The Hunt for Red October," is still one of my favorites.

    "Liked it from start to finish"

    It's hard not to like a Tom Clancy book. I thoroughly enjoyed this one. It's his last, of course. I'm hoping that Mark Greaney wrote enough of it to hint that the Clancy style will continue to provide us with such great reads. I loved the detail in Command Authority. Everything here could have actually happened. The historical relevance is captivating. This book goes fast and deep.

    "Delivers as expected"

    This was another great Jack Ryan Jr story. My only disappointment was that the conclusion was rushed. Other than that it was fun to listen too.

    "Confusing story,"

    Hard to follow just by hearing. Action was in Focus but the relations were not always clear.
