Description

His work for the CIA is brilliant, cold-blooded and efficient, but who is he? In a harrowing tour de force, phenomenally best-selling author Tom Clancy shows how an ordinary man named John Kelly crossed the lines of justice and morality to become the CIA legend known as Mr. Clark. It is an unforgettable journey into the heart of darkness, without mercy - without remorse.

©2009 Tom Clancy (P)2010 Random House

“Highly entertaining.” (The Wall Street Journal)

“Clancy's writing is so strong that readers feel they are there, in the middle of the action...satisfying and engrossing.” (Boston Sunday Herald)

Start here if you are new to Jack Ryan.

After starting the Jack Ryan series with Dead or Alive I thought I would try starting the series from the beginning, now there is a series view but this is the one that starts Jack Ryan out. He is not a character in this story but at Boston College, or just going to start at BC.
But John Clark begins in this book and he is a strategic character to the entire series, even when you don't get a mention of him he is there and you know it. But this is where it all starts, and this is where I wish I had started the series.
In my humble opinion the series should be started here, Without Remorse then follow along to Patriot Games, then Red Rabbit (one of the two of the series I won't buy because of the price being twice the other books). Hunt for Red October next then Cardinal of the Kremlin and Clear and Present Danger. Sum of all Fears next, though Hollywood added some drama that is not part of the book in the movie and the movie sucks for me now. Debt of Honor next then Executive Orders and Rainbow Six. Coming back to the stretch is Bear and the Dragon then Teeth of the Tiger and Dead or Alive and Locked On.

Without Remorse does give you the start and basics of the Jack Ryan universe and the over arching story is really founded in this book. Great Read and a fair narration, easily worth the time and credits.

Story is great - Narrator is horrible

Would you try another book from Tom Clancy and/or Michael Prichard?

Two stars overall because the narrator is so bad that I am losing the storyline because my mind wanders away... I think Tom Clancy is a great author; however, to listen to this narrator is killing me. It is taking me much longer to finish this book solely because I have such a hard time listening to the narrator's monotone voice. I can not tell when one story line stops and another picks up.There is no emotion in the narrator's voice as if he has never read that book before. I would have to say this is my second book on audible and if it wasn't for the fact that the first one I read was wonderfully narrated I would have cancelled my audible account it is that bad...

Narrator is terrible

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Michael Prichard?

I would have cast Lou Diamond Phillips - Michael Prichard sounds like he never read the book beforehand and is bored.

Monotonic, monosyllabic reader ruins it

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Would not recommend. This reader takes what could be an exciting listen of a good story and makes it boring. The droning saps all incentive to use your imagination on the characeters, settings etc.

This book was ruined for me

Any additional comments?

I read this book years ago and loved it. One of my top ten for sure. But the monotone way Michael Prichard reads makes the book so difficult to follow that it loses all of the great detail that I loved so much. From chapter to chapter you can't figure out where you are or who is talking. You miss a lot while trying to figure it out. I thought his voice and voice inflection was good for the main character John Kerry, but everyone else sounded just like him. When I read it myself, it was heart wrenching and then victorious, hearing it read it was just so-so and didn't stir much emotion for me at all.

Couldn't even listent to it - horrible narrator

While the content of books is very subjective the narrators are not. This is the first book in many years of being a Audible client that was just horrible. I couldn't listen to it as the narration was so poor. This is one that I should receive a credit for on my account. Yes - it was that bad and I wasted my money. I couldn't really rate the story, although I enjoy all of Clancy's books, because I couldn't get through it.

Enjoyed it! Even with the Narrator, Pritchards OK.

Good development of "Mr. Clark", dark, ruthless, but somehow likeable. This is the good Tom Clancy.

This should be your first Clancy book!

This should be your first listen of a Clancy book and should have been the first book made into a movie. Evil meets it's match with John Kelly!

Great Characters, Great Plot

Set in the latter days of Viet Nam, this is the novel that explains exactly who "Clark" is and what made him so well regarded and ruthless in the Jack Ryan novels, (principally "Clear and Present Danger." I highly recommend this novel!

Gute Geschichte, mäßig erzählt mit miserabler Soundqualität.

Steht eigentlich alles in der Überschrift.
Zwischen wechselnden Handlungssträngen keine Pause, der Sprecher stirbt vor Langeweile und die Soundqualität eines Plattenspielers aus den 30er Jahren ist HIFI dagegen.
Story gut und erklärt hervorragend die Geschichte einiger der Hauptakteure des Ryan Universums. Mit besserer Soundqualität und einem leidenschaftlicheren Sprecher eine Empfehlung, so aber besser als Buch lesen oder die deutsche Version probieren.

super spannendes Buch, dass auch in die Tiefe geht

ein tolles Buch, fantastisch vorgetragen von Michael Prichard. Es hat eine tolle Länge und kann daher gut ins Detail gehen, nicht eine Minute langweilig, sehr zu empfehlen.

Absolut fesselnd

Ein absolut fesselndes Hörbuch. Habe ich vor Jahren geschenkt bekommen und erst kürzlich gehört - Action-Stories sind sonst nicht meines. Bin beeindruckt und finde die Charaktere extrem gut gezeichnet.

Was ist Gerechtigkeit.


Der Thriller Without Remorse von Tom Clancy geht es um die frage was Gerechtigkeit ist.

Es spielt während des Vietnamkriegs und dient als Ursprungsgeschichte von John Clark, einem der wiederkehrenden Charaktere im Jack Ryan-Universum. Without Remorse stellt Clark als ehemaligen Navy SEAL John Kelly vor und erklärt, wie und warum er seinen Namen geändert hat.

Der ehemalige navy seal John Kelly, der kürzlich seine schwangere Frau Patricia bei einem Autounfall verloren hat, begegnet einen Tramperin namens Pam auf seinem Weg zu seinem Haus auf Battery Island ab. Sie werden schnell zu Liebhabern, und im Laufe der Zeit erfährt Kelly, dass Pamela Madden eine Ausreißerin ist, die zu einem Drogenkurier und Prostituierten wurde; sie war gerade ihrem Drogendealer entkommen.

Der Zuhälter/Dealer findet sie aber und ermordet sie.

Kelly geht auf ein Rachefeldzug.

Die Personen in diesen Thriller sind ziemlich einfach da gestellt. Sie sind entweder Gut oder Abschaum. Es ist mit Sicherheit kein Entwicklungsroman oder Literatur. Das ist aber auch so nicht gemeint. Es ist Unterhaltung. In seine Art prima. Aber erwarte nichts tiefgrabendes.

4/5 sterne
