Summary

The latest Tom Clancy Jack Ryan adventure thriller written by Mark Greaney, Clancy's last and most successful collaborator.

Abandoned by other international leaders, Jack Ryan alone counters the threat posed by Russian president Valeri Volodin. This isn't the first time that the dictator has threatened world peace, but this time he's playing a very nuanced game, moving chess pieces around the board while isolating Ryan from the rest of the international community.

Fortunately, Jack Ryan, Jr. and the rest of his Campus team find themselves in the middle of action with a vital clue to the Russian's intentions.

Great book, in the spirit of Tom Clancy

What did you like most about Tom Clancy Commander in Chief: Jack Ryan, Book 11?

I read reviews before I bought this, some of which were critical of the story being slow. I've been an avid Tom Clancy fan since way back and I have to say I find Mark Greaney's style just as engaging. I didn't think it was slow. Sure, there's detail, but I like that. The story switches to different sub plots quite often, but not so much it gets irritating at all. There's plenty of action in my opinion and the build towards the climax is very well done, really good tension.

Who was your favorite character and why?

All of the Campus operators are favourites. I like the way that they're portrayed as human and not superhuman. They make mistakes, but overall are a great team.

What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I've listened to Scott Brick narrate other stories and when reading Clive Cussler I don't take to the accent that he uses. I have to say that in this story though, he is really good. I like his delivery and pace and think he's a great choice

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

No

Any additional comments?

All in all a great book. Quite lengthy, but I was still sorry when it was over!

Not the best

A good listen but perhaps a little formulaic? A little over the top receivable too.

I personally love these books and love following the team, most books i get are only 8-10 hours and this being twice that was great and kept me following through to the end a definite 5 star review from me. Waiting for the next one! Keep it up Mark

One of the best

Mark Greaney has crafted a brilliant plot, neatly interwoven with current world events. Crossing this with the Campus has led to a fantastic book. The plot is somewhat predictable but the overall feel of the book is no less diminished by it. I thoroughly recommend this book to read.

Non stop action

While i am disappointed that Lou Diamond Phillips was no longer narrating i found this latest novel fantastic in continuing the Jack Ryan universe and hopefully we will get to see if Jack Jnr returns after his suspension.

Typical Tom Clancy / Mark Greaney

I have been a Tom Clancy fan since the first books....but took a long break for some inexplicable reason. Having started to listen to books over the last couple of years I have re-discovered the Jack Ryan books. This one does not disappoint. The storytelling is believable and the narrative creates a picture in your mind of the characters, the environment and the cut and thrust of the story.

Absolutely Terrible

one of the worst books I have ever listened to. the moral of the story is that Europe and everyone else in the world is stupid bit America. they save the world and they are the better specious in the world. so American mental attitude. tried to returned the book but Amazon wouldn't let me unless I returned the two books that I bought at the same time.

Good story

A really exciting and tense storyline. Well narrated except for some very dubious accents! Looking forward to the next book
