Jack, Jr does it again! I did miss not having the regular Campus Crew in this story, but Jack holds his own in this crazy intense adventure.
Scott Brick is awesome as always!
Very good listen
I have always enjoyed the series but I found this one a bit tiresome. I know that it is necessary to “suspend disbelief” but the author makes it hard here. For one thing, Jack Ryan Jr., son of the president of the USA, moves through the world unrecognized, manages to get involved with the Israeli police and Security Service and NOBODY can figure out who he is. “Don’t touch anything. They are trying to get your DNA?” Doesn’t anyone have facial recognition software? C’mon. It’s like reading the script for a blockbuster special effects movie like Die Hard. This thought kept intruding. “Author jumps the shark”.
I really don’t know why I am going back to read the latest instalment of Jack Ryan Junior. They are becoming carbon copies of each other where Jack starts off with a fairly innocuous mission and ends up in a scarcely believable situation. This seems to happen over and over with this latest instalment being quite possibly the most unbelievable yet.
Don’t get me wrong, it is a reasonable technothriller but I think where this series does the best is where the full array of developed characters are utilised. The last few books have not done this and have been the Porra for it.
Upsides are the great descriptions of latest technology and its utilisation in the military the tactics employed. Downsides are that it barely is believable.
I am not sure I am going to return to the series but I am sure this book will delight many.
