Publisher's Summary

Debt of Honor ends as Jack Ryan is confirmed vice president minutes before a mammoth act of terrorism kills the President, most of his cabinet, all but a few members of Congress, the entire Supreme Court and all of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Suddenly Ryan is President, which is where Executive Orders begins.
Ryan's responsibilities crush in on him. Where should he begin? He must calm a nation, pacify world leaders, arrange a massive funeral -- while he rebuilds a government as quickly as possible. But that's not all. Enemies abroad and at home see opportunities, and they'll soon present President Ryan with an unimaginable crisis. How will he tackle his greatest challenge ever?

Don't some of us wish Jack ryan was real?

I would hesitate to name any single one of Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan books as my favorite, but if I did Executive Orders would probably be it. What an excellent book! When I started reading this series sometime in the late 80's it never dawned on me that Jack Ryan would ever become president. Still Clancy comes up with a plausible if unlikely sequence of events to propel Jack Ryan into the presidency of the United States. My only problem with the whole scenario is that I find it hard to believe that there are any politicians with as much common sense as Jack Ryan demonstrates in this book. Prichard does a good job as narrator of this book although there might be some better choices for narrator. Some people don't care for the detail that Clancy puts into his books or the length of this book in particular. I don't understand that myself. To my way of thinking I got this audio book for entertainment. Isn't 51 hours of entertainment better than 5 hours of entertainment? Would I recommend this book? I sure would!

Long labour of listening

A monster of a book but worth every cent, this Jack Ryan tale is woven into a great tapestry. The charicters are sublime and they all work. His knowledge on warfare, be it truth or fiction, is of the highest calibre. If you only get one Clancy, get this one but be warned, it is very hard to turn off. Ideal for when you have a week of painting the house or you are confined to quarters!

Not an Enjoyable Listen

I was looking forward to Executive Orders, especially given other reviews and ratings. However, I found the narrator's delivery to be so irritating and monotonous that I have given up listening to it. I now have the printed version and it is an excellent read. I have downloaded many books from Audible and this is the worst by a long, long way. I just wish they would allow occasional returns. I suppose I am in the minority on this one but so be it.

Was looking forward to this as like Tom Clancy's books but the narrator spoilt it for me. I only got through half the 1st part. It was like listerning to a machine speaking, sometimes I got lost because I didn't realise we'd changed situation - so disappointed.
