Act of Valor stars a group of active-duty Navy SEALs in a powerful story of contemporary global anti-terrorism. Inspired by true events, the story combines stunning combat sequences, up-to-the minute battlefield technology and heart-pumping emotion for the ultimate action adventure. Act of Valor takes listeners deep into the secretive world of the most elite, highly trained group of warriors in the modern world.
When the rescue of a kidnapped CIA operative leads to the discovery of a deadly terrorist plot against the U.S., a team of SEALs is dispatched on a worldwide manhunt. As the valiant men of Bandito Platoon race to stop a coordinated attack that could kill and wound thousands of American civilians, they must balance their commitment to country, team and their families back home. Each time they accomplish their mission, a new piece of intelligence reveals another shocking twist to the deadly terror plot, which stretches from Chechnya to the Philippines and from Ukraine to Somalia. The widening operation sends the SEALs across the globe as they track the terrorist ring to the U.S.-Mexico border, where they engage in an epic firefight with an outcome that has potentially unimaginable consequences for the future of America.

Exceptionally well written and narrated audiobook

This audiobook is incredible; I enjoyed it from the first chapter to the last. Couch and Gladorisi do an excellent job of writing. The story is very well conceived, flows well and is very believable. Steven Weber does a very good job of narration.
After reading a previous review, I had concerns this book might be a 'little mushy,' it isn't! It's about Navy Seals and their heroic wives who never seem to get the credit they deserve for their sacrifices while their husbands are deployed to keep us safe.
I will warn you, this is a great book worth every minute of listening. In fact, you will probably be wishing it were longer - I would rate it a 10 if I could,,,but I hated the way it ends.

Give me a sec while I dry my eyes.....

Would you listen to Tom Clancy Presents: Act of Valor again? Why?

Wow~ I would have to say yes, but this is one very intense story...at least for me it was. Yes, I am a girl...yeah, girls are a little more emotional, but even manly men are allowed to get teary eyed over the conclusion of this one.


What did you like best about this story?

What can I say, it's an intriguing & compeling story. The writing & narraration is so well done that you feel like you are right there living it or that you are at least being told the story by someone who actually experienced a real situation. It doesn't really have that


Which character – as performed by Steven Weber – was your favorite?

The narration was so amazing, but I have to say... holy moly, there is one scene with the Dr. when she(he) says


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I had planned to, but I just couldn't do it....it was just too intense. I had to take 2 seperate breaks which is very unlike me to be honest. I usually like to just plow through from start to finish.... however, it is now 4:30 a.m. because once I got back into it I couldn't turn it off because it got so intense. Then, I had to write this review while it was still fresh in my thoughts....not that I will be forgetting this one any time soon.


Any additional comments?

This story is about the ugly up-close and personal side of terrorism. But it is truely about bravery, patriotism, honor, loyalty, and the ultimate sacrifice.
I highly recommend this audiobook~
Happy listening~
