Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes I would to anyone who loves it when terrorists get what they deserve.
What did you like best about this story?
That Jack Ryan is able to do what needs to be done to save innocents, especially his family.
What about Michael Prichard’s performance did you like?
He is too monotonous.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Already been done reasonably well, but as usually changed way too much.
How could the performance have been better?
A zombie computer in slow motion would have created more excitement
Any additional comments?
I managed to get 8 minutes into this 20 hour long audiobook before giving up. Thoroughly dissapointed as I have heard many good things about the author and this series in particular. But the narrator is so monotonous, there is no character in his voice whatsoever. Very early on there is a action packed high octane moment with a car crash and explosions and guns being fired and he is reading it like he's reading out the ingredients on a box of corn flakes. Also having read other comments apparantly he gets no better and his poor pronunciation means perhaps he even gets worse.
Incase you couldn't tell... Not a happy customer, wouldn NOT recommend.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Great novel, however the narration was monotone.
Do you think Patriot Games needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
It was my intention to listen to all the Jack Ryan books having purchased the first two, however the narration is so poor I don't think I'll bother!!

Wasn’t as action packed as Hunt for the Red October but still a good listen.
A believable thriller and using the politics of the day entwining throughout the story that had me on the edge of my seat all the way through
