What the Critics Say

"Clancy's latest novel traces the financial, political, military, and personal machinations that drive America into the next major global war.... a shocker climax so plausible you'll wonder why it hasn't yet happened. (Entertainment Weekly)

    "Great Book Narrated by Droopy Dog"
    Would you try another book from Tom Clancy and/or John MacDonald?

    Tom Clancy yes.John MacDonald no.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I only ever got 10 minutes into the book before the narrator's voice put me to sleep. This fact prevented me from listing to the book while driving.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    His voice was like a drunk robot giving a glue drying lesson in a hot class room after lunch.

    "Narrator bland"

    The is the latest of the Jack Ryan chronology I have listened to. It is the first with John McDonald as the narrator. I much prefer J. Charles or Michael Pritchard. McDonald is very dry and flat.

    "Excellent Writing, Terrible Reading"

    If you've made it this far in Clancy's series, I don't have to tell you how well he constructs the plot and subplots. Debt of Honor is no different. The writing is superb, and an excellent stepping stone in the series. Of course, you have to get through the reader for that.

    This is, without a doubt, one of the worst readers I have experienced on Audible (avid listener but first review). He is monotone and robotic. He shows no inflection unless trying to use a voice. I say "trying" because many of his voices are very similar, but, given the scope of characters, it's hard to fault him for that. The timbre of his voice during the narration portions sounded extremely boring and difficult to endure. I do think he gets better from the beginning of the book (or maybe I just got use to it?), partly because there is more conversation between characters, and he does a better job with inflection and tone for that. Which is why he gets 2 stars instead of one. But it is still difficult to ensure.

    Although the reader is difficult, this is still a great book, which is why, for me, it still gets 4 stars. If I wanted a play I'd go to broadway. Clancy's story trumps the reading. This was the next book for me, and I had been putting it off because of the reader and reviews, but I'm glad I decided to go for it and just push through. The story is worth it, and, on a positive note, he isn't reading the next book. 😂

    "One of the best of Jack Ryan "

    This one one of the best books in the Jack Ryan series. The performance by John MacDonald is also perfect.

    "Great story, but ruined by a terrible voice over"

    The reader sounds like a text to speech machine! The story is great but this ruined it. I wish there was a different version without him.

    "Good story"

    Good story line. Kept my interest and didn't want to turn it off. Not a fan of John MacDonald. He kind of ruined it for me.

    "A little slow at times"

    If you have read or listened to a lot of the newer Tom Clancy books this one will bring to light a lot of things that are the way they are. The end caught me off guard a little but makes sense.

    "Great Story, but the narrator is horrible!!!!!!!!"

    I just started listening to this, I read the novel way back when it was first published, and as with all actual Tom Clancy novels(as opposed to those ghost written after his death) the story is compelling and interesting, but the narrator...I should have listened to the reviews, oh my GOD!, the guy sounds like Auto from Wall-E, the text to voice feature on my PC has more inflection and personality than John MacDonald.
    I honestly thought that the reviews were being over the top with their "bashing" the narrator, but if anything they were being kind.
    They need to find someone else and re-record this novel, this is horrible. I may return it, but I really want to listen to this novel.
