I listened to Without Remorse first which introduced me to John Clark in his early career. I bought Rainbow Six with a lot of hesitation because of the negative review about he narrator.
I have completely enjoyed the book and the narrator. I highly recommend the book and the narrator.
I have bought over 200 books from Audible and this book was really enjoyable. Buy it if you want a nice long listen that is loads of fun.

I got this book when it came out in about 1999.
The world has moved on since it first came out and the terrorist threat has moved on a good deal from the books cold war roots, but as a plot line it does remain valid.
It is still a good story, especially if you like Clancy's other Ryanverse works.
It well paced and Clancy develops the main characters nicely. As always, Clancy's attention to the accuracy of technical details is reassuring.
What ruin's it though is the reader - Michael Pritchard. Pritchard narrates as though he is reading the instructions for a microwave.
He over enunciate's everything, one character's 'voice' is essentially the same as every other character, and his attempts at doing accents, with the exception of English ones, is nearly non-existent.
Pritchard's reading of this book spoiled it for me, and i won't be going near anything else he narrates.

Good Tom Clancy Story, but the reader sounds a bit pompous just doing his own American accent, and more awful doing British and Australian. It is very obvious that it has been edited together from different sessions - the tone, quality and rythmn of the reading changing abruptly is quite jarring.
I got another Tom Clancy read by Lou Diamond-Phillips which was much better.
