    Description

    For President Jack Ryan, his son Jack Ryan, Jr., and the covert organization known as The Campus, the fight against America’s enemies is never over. But the danger has just hit home in a way they never expected in this #1 New York Times bestselling Tom Clancy thriller....

    The Campus has been discovered. And whoever knows they exist knows they can be destroyed. Meanwhile, President Jack Ryan has been swept back into the Oval Office - and his wisdom and courage are needed more desperately than ever.

    Internal political and economic strife has pushed the leadership of China to the edge of disaster. And those who wish to consolidate their power are using the opportunity to strike at long-desired Taiwan, as well as the Americans who have protected the tiny nation.

    Now, as two of the world’s superpowers move ever closer to a final confrontation, President Ryan must use the only wild card he has left - The Campus. But with their existence about to be revealed, they might not even have a chance to enter the battle before the world is consumed by war.

    The Clancy that gave us Clear & Present...

    This was the most intriguing Clancy novel in a long time. The very real threat of the Chinese, (see yesterday's headlines of Japan and China) and cyber warfare is as fascinating as it is threatening. No one researches better than Clancy and few know military operations and capabilities more than him.

    Better still, the suspense in this novel is top rate, on the same level as his earlier novels. Lou Diamond Phillips is the perfect choice for this work. His characterizations are spot on.

    In his recent works, Clancy has been criticized for his politics. This is not the case with this book at all.

    If you like action, you can do no better!

    Would you consider the audio edition of Threat Vector to be better than the print version?

    Absolutely, Lou Diamond Philips is a masterful narrator, his performances never disappoint. The material within these pages is so action packed and the stakes are so high that listening to the story from someone with directed intention elevates the material to an amazing height.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This is a silly question, Jack Jr. Is the perfect American hero. He is a perfect melding of Jack Ryan, Mitch Rap, and the Gray Man (Mark Greaney's breakout action character). He is a selfless hero that is willing to risk everything in order to protect his country and he doesn't leave men behind.

    What about Lou Diamond Phillips’s performance did you like?

    Everything, LDP is an amazing actor (See Southland for a recent role) and he is able to turn his skill into amazing narration.

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

    This book is adrenaline pumping, I felt excited! I finished this book 12/5/12, 24hrs after it was released. I couldn't put it down!

    Any additional comments?

    If you are on the fence about this book, let me explain my tastes so that you can gauge if we share common literary tastes for this genre.

    I love:
    Mitch Rap (Vince Flynn)
    Dewey Andreas (Ben Coes)
    Court Gentry (Mark Greaney)
    Jack Reacher (Lee Child)
    Tommy Carmellini (Stephen Coonts)
    Carlos Guillermo Castillo (W. E. B. Griffin)

    Ok, so those are some of my favorite action series that are in this similar espionage action genre. I found this book in particular to really mirror some of W. E. B. Griffin's early work melded with Flynn. That said, there is the signature Clancy storytelling in this book that jumps between several stories. I do not particularly enjoy the earlier Clancy novels that pertain to the elder Ryan, I found them amazingly slow and complicated with relatively low reward. This book mimics the same storytelling style but doesn't pull any punches when it comes to action.

    I found myself wanting to spend more time with particular portions of the story and characters but the pacing was well thought out and I was never disappointed when prospective shifted. I have detected some of the Stephen Coont's syndrome, the seeming inability to set aside older characters and allow new ones to flourish but I think that Greaney's influence on this new series is helping breathe valuable life into the Clancy novels.

    Jack Jr. is an amazing character, more lovable that Mitch Rapp and far more whole than Greaney's earlier two dimensional characters. This new younger Ryan is deposited brilliantly in a deep and rich fiction that creates a vivid backdrop.

    I would strongly recommend that you start this cycle of the Jack Ryan Junior novels at their beginning, this story moves at a swift pace and you will love all of the returning characters so much more for your previous experiences with them!

    On a side note, I want to tell you that I try to consume media that is character driven, not story driven! This particular genre has a tenancy to be heavily story driven but I think that this novel and series does a wonderful job of focusing on the characters! If you are looking for a quick action read this can satisfy you but it it is heavily enriched by knowledge of the characters. For example, if you aren't familiar with Tom Clancy's earlier "The Teeth of the Tiger" you might not have the richest or fullest appreciation for Haney and Associates and its remaining founders. Not a major issue but one that clearly supports a rich character development that honors faithful readers.

    This is one of the good ones, they are few and far between and you should not hesitate to read this book immediately, or place it in your wishlist for your next credit!

    Needs an Editor

    Went on vacation with my wife. We both like to listen to books, but have different tastes. She is a huge Clancy fan and I am ok with him. She has read all the Clancy books written, I have just read "Hunt For Red October". She said this was not Clancy's best, but she would give it four stars. I found it a little too long, sometimes boring, but very informative. we both agreed that an editor was needed.

    Once a writer gets as famous as Clancy if he writes about pigs farting then an editor is scared to say anything and pigs farting gets published and probably becomes a best seller. In this book are some scenes that just go on and on and on. For instance there is a scene that involves a gun fight in a strip bar. It takes up about 2 hours of listening and four or five chapters. Some Clancy fans may love this, but I thought it went on too long.

    As someone who easily gets confused by different characters, who they are and what they are doing in the story, I found I had none of that as a problem. Clancy builds his characters well enough that you know who they are even if you don't hear from them for hours or chapters. I enjoyed the China politics where my wife thought that was boring. I am more of a political junkie then she is. Some may think this story of computer hacking by different countries may not be realistic, while I believe it is happening as we speak. I seem to remember stories about it during the Clinton Presidency.

    While I had no problem knowing who the different characters were, I did get a little confused on the whole story and all the in's and out's of all the back stabbing, spying, twist and turns, while my wife had no problem keeping up, even though she fell asleep during some of it. She was tired, and does not travel well.

    I don't believe you must read any of the other books to follow this story, but my wife enjoyed knowing what certain characters did in previous books. Unless this is on sale, I would suggest you read them in order for a slightly more pleasurable experience.

    LDP is a good narrator, I was surprised.

    Spies and a counter espionage

    This book is packed with suspense and action including sea, land and air battles. The major part of the book is based on cyber warfare. Even though this is fiction it should act as a warning of what could happen. Lou Diamond Phillips did a great job narrating this story. Jack Ryan Sr is back as President and Jack Jr is off chasing the cyber spy "center". His girlfriend is spying on him for the FBI. War heats up in the South China Sea as China tries to increase it's territory. Great air battles--felt like I was in the plane with the pilot. Clancy sure can write a good suspense military story. Looking forward to his next one.

    Great book - but Lou Diamond Phillips was bad

    Where does Threat Vector rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Great story - Lousy Narration as he kept doing rapid LOUD breaths during his reading that were very annoying. It was like he was playing a musical instrument. Back away from the mic or take normal breaths or do editing after the fact or hit a cough button to remove it.

    What did you like best about this story?

    Typical Clancy Action

    What didn’t you like about Lou Diamond Phillips’s performance?

    He needs to learn how to breath and talk correctly. He has a really annoying way of taking fast quick LOUD breaths during the reading. This is the first Audible reader I have heard this from and it was so bad this is my first ever Audible Review.

    Cyber war with China!

    There is a new war taking place China has decided to declare a cyber war on the USA. They are doing it by proxy using an unofficial off the books agency that officially does not exist. This agency uses computer exploits to infiltrate corporate and governmental agencies in combination with human assets that they have compromised and are black mailing into rendering aid.

    Jack Ryan is once again in the oval office and is doing everything in his power to stop a full-fledged shooting war. But he has to deal with President Wei Zhen Lin who has lost control of his country to General Su Ke Quiang.

    We also see Jack Ryan Jr. storyline progress and he is quickly gaining valuable in field abilities.

    This book reminded me of Tom Clancy’s earlier work Net Force but I found the book enjoyable and Lou Diamond Phillips did a great job narrating.

    An easy to read book for Clancy

    Lou Diamond Phillips is getting better with each book he nararates. He does an excellent job with this one. It must have been quite difficult, especially with all the Chinese names and voices. He did it very well. The story was very believable and scary, because I think what Clancy portrays, is Very close to how this scenario would actually play out. It is not as complicated with multiple stories as most Clancy novels. If you like espionage and clancy novels, you will love this one.

    The sound mix has major issues!

    What made the experience of listening to Threat Vector the most enjoyable?

    The narrator - has a nice voice making it easy to follow the characters

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Threat Vector?

    I have not finished the book yet.

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

    I have not listened to other books narrated by Phillips - but here are some problems. Everytime he takes a breath - you hear it. A good audio person should have been able to fix that. Also they have speeded up the rate of his talking so that I had to slow it down to 1/2 rate in order to follow the book. Average rate of speech is 150 WPM. When you make it faster it is harder for me - and perhaps others - to follow the story. When you slow it on an iPhone there is a slight reverberation. Not the fault of the iPhone.

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

    My main reaction to the book is the issue with the breath intake of the reader. I should be focusing on the plot of the book not the audio problems of the book.

    Any additional comments?

    I am really concerned about this problem with audible books as this is the second book that I have observed this issue. The other was Darkness at Noon. Audible needs to fix this problem - or they shall lose me as a customer.

    The Panther, Split Second & One Amazing Things were done beautifully. What gives????? Are you selective about who gets the better treatment in order to hurry the book to the public?

    where is the other half?

    Debt of Honor, Executive Orders, the Bear and the Dragon, and Rainbow Six are all over what 36hrs long, with EO being 51. This is book 3? in Greaney's series and all of these books have been 17-19hrs long. Paying new book price, for 1/3rd to 1/2 of the content...

    The story is good, but you signed on to a franchise with spoiled fans that had long books. It is written well, and I want more of it, but in the old format...

    Outstanding espionage thriller

    Threat Vector, released in 2012, is the second novel Tom Clancy co-wrote with Mark Greaney. It is a remarkably outstanding novel. Jack Ryan is back as President and the US and China are near outright war. The suspense is very, very intense. Jack Ryan Jr. is now employed by the Campus, a group who contracts espionage work with the CIA and he plays a significant part in the novel. One thing we learn is that Mark Greaney makes Tom Clancy novels better. Actor Lou Diamond Phillips narrates very well, but Scott Brick who narrates more recent novels in the series is much better. I very highly recommend Threat Vector.

    trifft die Erwartungen

    Die USA als Hüter von Recht und Ordnung auf der Welt. Alle sind böse (diesmal sind's die Chinesen) und nur ein kleiner Teil von Superhelden verteidigt das Land der Guten. Völlig altruistisch, und vorbei an Recthtsstaat und Gewaltenteilung, verteidigen die Helden die Freiheit der Welt.
