Publisher's Summary

A terrorist bomb explodes during a South Korean celebration of the anniversary of the election of its first president.
Alarms are raised in Washington. No one is claiming responsibility.
The first suspect is North Korea. Could it be making a power play against South Korea and unification? If so, how will the U.S. respond? Paul Hood, Director of the Op-Center, must answer these questions. The Op-Center, a largely autonomous new agency which takes on the government's toughest security problems, is only six months old, and has never been given a foreign crisis until now.
Hood's team, which includes a general, a former ambassador, a psychologist, and a computer specialist, tries to find the solution, only to discover a factor that could change the new world order.
From the Compact Disc edition.

Excellent listen

This was my first Tom Clancy book I've listened to, and loved it. It was difficult at times to try and remember the pile of cast members, and the jumping around style took me a while to get used to, but after a while, the style seemed tight and clear. The reader, Michael Kramer is incredible . .either he's incredible, or they actually used 5 or so different people doing the voices.

The story was full of the action I heard Tom Clancy was so well known for, and I felt like the story balanced and pulled together each of the story lines together nicely.

It's 4 stars only because I had to concentrate while listening, and had to backup all the time and re-listen to sections :-)

Well written just not gripping for me.

Where does Tom Clancy's Op-Center rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Near the middle so far.

If you’ve listened to books by the authors before, how does this one compare?

It is a different author than Rainbow Six but they come from the same house. If Rainbow Six was The Illiad this was The Cat in the Hat. The Cat in the Hat is not a bad book. It just isnt as deep and well done as The Illiad

Which character – as performed by Michael Kramer – was your favorite?

No one really stuck out. Ms. Chong, whom we meet playing piano, was probably the most interesting via Kim's opinions that he expresses about her.

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

The knight hawk scene. Written really well. I am a very technical person the clean violent act mixed perfectly with the information given about the aircraft made a very short sweet read. mind blowing really.

Any additional comments?

It was a good book but most of the characters felt very plain/not fleshed/ Typical. I never found myself wondering what anyone was up to because i didnt care about them.

Annoying narration

What would have made Tom Clancy's Op-Center better?

A different narrator.

What was most disappointing about the authors’s story?

The narrators voice.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Michael Kramer?

Anyone who doesn't 'ask a question' in the middle of and at the end of most sentences. Infuriating vocal habit.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Can't say, couldn't bear to listen to more than 45 minutes.

Any additional comments?

Only stuck it out for the first 45 minutes, before the narrators irritating voice sent me screaming for the off switch!
