Summary

In late summer of 1994, Jack Noble, a former All-American quarterback, is in the middle of the toughest event he's ever taken part in: marine corps recruit training. After eight weeks he's managed to make enemies of every drill instructor and every recruit in his platoon. Then on one particularly humid South Carolina day, an odd sequence of events changes everything. Contains an excerpt of Noble Intentions: Episode 1.

Prequel short story to Jack Noble series!

This short story is set in US Marine boot camp where Jack Noble meets Riley "Bear" Logan for the first time. It is not Book 12 in the series as Audible lists it.

Good but too short

I like the story and the narrator did a great job. I just wish there had been more to it. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.

The Recruit - A Short Really Short Story

A Short... really short story. This is Jack Noble as a marine recruit. The DI's give him a really hard time, they get Bear to fight him, Bear loses and the DI's go after Bear. Jack goes to help Bear and that is how they meet. This is the beginning. The very beginning... very short beginning.

It wasn't a bad short, just really extremely short. It could have been expanded a bit I think. Narration was not bad.

Great, but too short

I wish this had been a complete book in the 9 to 12 hours range.

Kick Ass Beginning

I've listened to the whole Jack Noble series, and this short story sets the perfect tone for the rest of the series. Wonderful/Amazing author and the narrator is a bad ass. Keep up the great work you two.

BORING!

This might be a decent story, but I can’t get past the guy reading it. The reading just isn’t very good. In fact it makes the whole thing bad and boring!

No Jack Ryan.

To violent and crude. However it was better than the evening news these days. Uninspiring.

good story, didn't care for the readers voice.

I liked the story but the readers voice didn't appeal to me for this type of story.

Rip off

I wasted a credit on a 30 minute story, and it pisses me off. This flashback could of been in any of the other books. I feel cheated by this short story. I have listened to every book in this series, and it sucks to end it this way. Very disappointed!!
