Description

Jack Ryan Jr.--along with the covert warriors of the Campus--continues to uphold his legendary father’s legacy of courage and honor in this thriller from number one New York Times best-selling author Tom Clancy.

Privately training with special forces, he’s honing his combat skills to continue his work within the Campus, hunting down and eliminating terrorists wherever he can--even as Jack Ryan Sr. campaigns to become President of the United States again.

But what neither father nor son knows is that the political and personal have just become equally dangerous. A devout enemy of Jack Sr. launches a privately-funded vendetta to discredit him and connect him to a mysterious killing in his longtime ally John Clark’s past. All they have to do is catch him.

With Clark on the run, it’s up to Jack Jr. to stop a growing threat emerging in the Middle East, where a corrupt Pakistani general has entered into a deadly pact with a fanatical terrorist to procure four nuclear warheads they can use to blackmail any world power into submission--or face annihilation.

Take another thrill ride with Jack Ryan.

My first Clancy novel.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Heck yes !

What was one of the most memorable moments of Locked On?

All of the action scenes.

Have you listened to any of Lou Diamond Phillips’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Never listened to Lou before, but he is an excellent narrator.

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

It took me back to when I was in the Air Force. I listened while commuting to and from work. I managed not to wreck the car.

Any additional comments?

Never read a Tom Clancy book. Saw hunt for Red October when it came out. Jumped right in there with this one. Had no trouble keeping up with his continuing characters.
It's a great book as an audible !! Planning on getting his

Classic Tom Clancy

Would you listen to Locked On again? Why?

i really like the abridged version of Tom Clancy books. the action is not dragged down by information that i do not need, or can get by reading the book, and i enjoy listening to them again and again.

NOTE: i first tried to down load this book in enhanced format. it would play for 50-55 min. and stop. i repeated the down load with the same results 4 times. finally i downloaded format 4 version. and it played.

What did you like best about this story?

i can stay interested in the story.

Have you listened to any of Lou Diamond Phillips’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Lou Diamond Phillips is excellent. i condersider him one of the best.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

if i had enough time, yes. but, i can spread my enjoyment over 2 days.

Any additional comments?

get rid of enhanced format. i have had repeated trouble with. it does not sound any better then format 4 and uses 2X the memory

Not one of the best "Campus" books.

Lou Diamond Phillips CANNOT do a Welsh accent! He substitutes a very bad English or a just as ridiculous Irish or Scottish accent in a poor attempt to sound broadly 'British'.
There is a character who is supposed to be a Welsh fitness trainer early on in the story. He is only a minor character so why not make him a nationality he can do? I'm sure the authors would prefer a small re-write if it meant the listener would stay with their belief of the storyline. This mistake cost me my belief and the story was difficult to take seriously after that. Welsh people don't call other guys "Laddie"! Scots maybe. Perhaps Irish, but if you're that bad at an accent why not change things slightly. No big deal, and then we can read on.
It's my opinion that the overall integrity of the work of art (the book) is more important than whether the character was Welsh, Irish or Norwegian. As soon as I got to this laughable passage I knew he wasn't Welsh and I was just listening to an Americans idea of what a Welshman sounded like.
I would like to add that I have a lot of respect for Lou Diamond Phillips. I think he is a very good actor and have admired his work in the past. I have listened to many of his audiobook narrations too and he's very good at telling a story. My criticism is not aimed directly at him. My point is whoever has the final say when a book is adapted for audio should either leave out the joke accents if they are that bad and change the character slightly, especially if it's so inconsequential to the story. Better that than lose credibility, belief and integrity.

Shoot Em Up in Russia

This is good for a TV movie full of guns and exciting explosians and terrorists and mssiles in Russia of all places. John Clark is the new Superman.

This Review Needs a Title...So, I

This is the story of Jack Ryan Jr's exploits out in the field as he transitions from analyst--a story we've heard before. This was an OK book. It isn't as good as the vintage Clancy; some say that the ghost writing and editor meddling have caused quality decrease. I'd say that what ever it is, this one is not as good as the Clancy classics. The most silly plot point, no one is going to recognize Jack Ryan, Jr. out in the field, when daddy's running for President, right? The detailed descriptions of military/intelligence components, in the true style of Clancy, leave little room for character development if the book is to be less thick than Exodus. And, read the 10 hour version, vice the 18 hour one. If this country's politicians are really as one-dimensional as Kealty, we're in trouble. It's a good blend of politics and action with a few familiar faces.The book brings back many familiar faces for another round and makes some money for an outsourced ghost writer and a meddling editor in NYC.

A Grim Taste of Global Near Misses

Seemingly endless combat. Scanty characterization, except for the narrator's spellbinding talent for breathing unique life into bellievable voices from many nations.

Ok

would be better if not so many characters. Too hard to track all of them
