This was a wonderful book with an outstanding presentation. Don Brown is a exceptional author. I look forward to my next read of his work.

Would you try another book from Don Brown and/or Dick Hill?
No I would not. Good story, but ruined by all the constant prayer. I would expect in life or death situations that there should be references to prayer and faith. But this just went well beyond that required for storytelling. Furthermore, all the women characters were portrayed as weak and emotional. Even the first daughter. Was made worse by Dick Hill's inability to voice a female as anything other than meek and submissive.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Fire of the Raging Dragon?
I greatly enjoyed the sequences of military combat. One really doesn't think about the challenges faced by a naval captain when it comes to decisions of shoot/don't shoot.
What didn’t you like about Dick Hill’s performance?
I couldn't not stand the way he voiced the president's daughter. He made her sound so meek, unsure of herself, and emotional. At the times when she was probably meant to take a strong stand, he made her out to sound like a little 5 year old saying "daddy, I'm a big girl!" which I would hope was not what the author intended.
Was Fire of the Raging Dragon worth the listening time?
If you can put up with the constant praying, horrible portrayal of women, and occasional jabs at the left wing, sure. It was a great story. You just have to put up with a lot of what seems to me to be antiquated ways of thinking that goes along with it.
Any additional comments?
If your a chauvinistic, strongly Christian, military man from the 1980's you will love this book. If not, you can probably overlook the things I've mentioned and really enjoy the engaging storyline. It really was difficult to put away at times.
