This book had poor audio quality with the words clipping off. If it weren't for that, I think this is a 4 star book. It was good and kept me listening, but they sped up the voice or tried to eliminate space between his words and they clipped quite often. If that kind of stuff doesn't bother you, get it...otherwise go to Amazon and order the actual book and read it, you'll like it better.

I love this book when narrated by Frank Muller, this book is awful, in fact, I cant find a word to encompass what a horrible job J. Charles did reading this. ITS ATROCIOUS!!!!! His accents are awful, almost every accent he does other than russian, which is awful too, comes across as deep south red-neck, including the british, and he often uses them interchangably, starts out southern and ends up british or vice-versa. I have never missed Frank Muller more. This rendition is so awful I will never listen to another book read by this person again. Accents aside, the pronunciations are also just plain terrible, in fact, saying they are terrible is like saying the ocean is a bit on the damp side, I could understand misspronouncing some of the russian, but most of the names, english, american and russian are botched, as well as common words in english. DID NO ONE LISTEN TO THIS BEFORE IT WAS PUBLISHED !?!?!?!? I cant believe anyone in literature, or Tom Clancy for that matter approved this reading. AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL, I cant stress this enough, it is the worst thing I have ever heard, a little part of me died listening to what this guy did to this great book. Audible, I am ashamed of you for putting this out there, where is the Frank Muller version??????
