Having read and enjoyed the book when it first came out in hardcover, I've just been waiting for the unabridged audible edition. I'm not sure I'll be able to stand the monotone narration for 36 hours. It's the worst I've ever heard.

As I drive a lot I love audible books. I have over 200 titles and must say this is THE READING ON THIS IS HORRIBLE. It sounds like a bad computer voice and often does run on sentences (no pause between sentences or paragraphs as most every reader in the world would do).
The story is classic Clancy. I have read all his books years ago and love them. I was going to listen to them in order but can't finish this one due to performance.
Bottom line is this book needs to be re-done as it is not up to Audible or Clancy standards....

Like the lovechild of Stephen Hawkins & a telephone answering machine. This narrator is more robotic than a child's robot toy. It's unbearable. I read the book and it is superb, but I can't get past the first 20 minutes of this awful, dead drone.
1 star - only because I had to tick the damned box.
If this had been my first audiobook, I would never buy another.

I just can't listen to this recording. The narrator reads it in such a dull monotone voice it's impossible to get into the story. Chapters back and forth but unless you are listening very carefully you would not notice as there is no gap in between them. I am sure the book is great but the narration is the worst I have heard, I will make sure I buy no other books read by the same person.
