Phenomenal book. Although Jack Ryan is probably the charachter who's perspective the reader is most meant to be seeing the story through, he's not actually in the book all that much. John Clark and Ding Chavez are in the book more prominently. Which is all fine by me, they're my favorite characters in the "Ryanverse" anyway. Michael Pritchard does a really good job on the narration. He adjusts his voice just enough for each character, even the females, to help give them color and identity in conversations, but not overmuch so as to get too close to being cheese. If you are on the fence about what to read next, and you even have a passing interest in Clancy's novels, get this one.
I have recently lost the ability to hold and read books. I have a print copy of this title but must admit, listening to it is riveting. I had forgotten much and the movie (with Harrison Ford as Jack Ryan) was a good one. There was some "artistic license but what out of Hollywood isn't?
great book.read it couple of times. in my work I can now listen to it
