Publisher's Summary

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.

WHAT CAN I SAY

Would you consider the audio edition of Tom Clancy Presents: Act of Valor to be better than the print version?

I spend a great deal of time in my car and have very little time to read the book. So I would say yes.


Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The plot was predictable in a good way, but the action was non stop.Good guys win, bad guys lose. At times I found myself driving slower to listen to a little more. Edge of my seat no but, always wanting more.


Have you listened to any of Steven Weber’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Couldn't say but, I would love to listen to him again.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

YES, as a man and an Amercian.


Any additional comments?

It is simple to to bad mouth Amercia, Why because we care. We fight the worlds battles with little help or understanding. Kill Bin Landen and half the world wants to kill all Americans and the other half second guesses every move. What other country would allow you to do that.The men of the Seals do missions that few could or would do and should be respected and honored in every way posible.
