As a Company Representative covering a substantial part of Central Qld, I spend a lot of time in my Car!
Tom Clancy's Books not only deliver excellent stories but also good value in the Hours it takes to conclude them!
The Sum of All Fears has the usual Clancy ingredients, very precise descriptions & strong detail. I think that the Reader, Scott Brick, is perfectly suited to this style of narrative.
His voice & tone add an extra dimension to a long story which could easily become boring with a less accomplished Reader.
As with most long stories, I find it best digested in large chunks! Most of my journeys are 3 hours plus and this enables me to get really involved. I think a Book like this would be less satisfying if it were listened to in ten to twenty minute sessions. I will undoubtedly be working my way through all of Tom's work!

Where does The Sum of All Fears rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
It's near the top of my list. I love the spy genre, with Tom Clancy and W.E.B. Griffin being my favorite authors. I love the way he explains what is happening during the nuclear explosion, and the way he weaves together multiple story lines. Classic Clancy.
What other book might you compare The Sum of All Fears to and why?
I'd compare it to any amazing mystery book that has been raped in film by Ben Affleck.
Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?
Jack Ryan, and John Clark get really distinctive voices in the book, and it adds an extra element of realism to it. I especially appreciate the way Mr. Brick addresses the female dialog. He doesn't go over the top, and gives them fairly neutral voicing.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
When Jack refuses to second the Presidents launch order I was almost jumping up and down in my car.

Admittedly a big Tom Clancy fan but I found this book to be in my top three Clancy novels...very enjoyable even if the narration sounds slightly dated...

This narration held my attention for every spare minute I had to listen to it. Tom Clansey gets it out there for all of us to see; the reality that espionage and war can bring to the human soul, and the actions they are prepared to take. Worth listening to more than once.
