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~

Best of America, honor and character astounding

What made the experience of listening to Tom Clancy Presents: Act of Valor the most enjoyable?

The suspense, the real drama, the detail and the love story between the main character and his wife. The bravery of America's soldiers who are willing to lay their life down so all Americans can live free and be critical of American millitary. The reader of the book brings this story to life: especially the funeral of the fallen soldier. I was listening to the last portion of the story while shopping for groceries and could not help but cry. I had to explain to people I was O.K. but listening to a great book.This story is what makes America the best country in this world.


What did you like best about this story?

The bravery of America's soldiers, the honor they bring to our country and the fact that the millitary men and woman go beyond their duties to keep our country safe is stunning to those of us who live our lives in relative safety and warmth of our homes.


What does Steven Weber bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Steve Weber brings a realm of reality and emotions to the story. He brings the book to life.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed and cried. I thought the light hearted banter among the soldiers was funny, I also could envision the scene where they stole the truck in Africa and then tried to explain the


Any additional comments?

The book and the story was so inspiring. My small troubles of everyday life seem so small compared to one man giving up his life for his fellow soldiers and the freedom that we so much enjoy in America.
