no, there wasnt really any one thing wrong , just the story was a so predictable, the only surprise happened in the 1st chapter with the killing of golovko.
i wouldn't recommend that they pay good money, wait till it gets to your library.
yes , performance was good, the author just didn't give him much of a story to tell
not at cinema prices no,but would rent it in dvd
i own every one of the jack ryan series and this is probably the worst,apart from a very poor narration of Red Rabbit that i once listened to.(funny how you remember the bad ones)
It is with Regret I finished this.
Lou Diamond Phillips was excellent. Having listened to other of his performances I am glad he did this too.
I was sorry to finish this as it was Tom Clancy's last. I have enjoyed the wild ride of his stories particularly the John Ryan (Snr) stories and was dubious of the John Ryan (Jnr) trail yet I have grown to love the sagas. Tom Clancy will be missed by this reader/listener and will wonder if Mark Greaney will take on the mammoth steps to continue the stories on, I don't know.
This is a long way around to say this was as great book as expected, a well written, well told book and one that deserves to be in my library. I will listen to this again and marvel at how the past and present, the injection from other Ryan books and the characters have grown.
Why the regret, I just hope maybe, there is something more. If not, I will just have to read and listen again and enjoy a master storyteller.
