Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

The thrilling next instalment in Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan Jr. series

Jack Ryan Jr is on a simple job. An all-expenses paid trip to Israel in exchange for a of couple hours easy work, reporting back to an old friend at the CIA. What could be easier? 

Jack is here merely as an observer, but as he settles into his work in the market, he sees the glint of a knife, and throws himself in front of a woman and her young son under attack. 

Cover blown, he finds himself the target of trained killers. Alone and outgunned, Jack will have to use all his skills to protect the life of the child.

Not Tom Clancy but learning to try & get there.

The story a little disjointed but is fast paced. Any Jack or Jr. Ryan novel keeps your ears listening.
Worth trying but not the original Campus stories.

Sadly not up to par

Brick was fine. Storyline thin. Apparently Jack Jr is the new superman. Not impressed.

Story, narration and suspense all intriguing

I thoroughly enjoyed this title. It had me on the edge of my seat. Finished in record time. Recommended.

Poorer than expected

As I’m visual impaired I need to extract details from the voice and the explanation of the surrounding to visualise the story. The technical explanation is a little too much and the impossible achievements of Jack Ryan to much exaggerated. Other stories of jr. are much better. I have waited long for this audible book, but unfortunately it is disappointing.

the story continues

The Jack Ryan jr story carries on, a little far fetched and maybe the the characters have had their time.
This is definitely not in the Tom clancy style.

One of the better post Tom Clancy books

Love the Jack Ryan Jr novels and enjoyed this. Scott Bricks performance is on point as always. A few more technical bits that have been missing but this had limited scope - I always imagined Tom Clancy with a big map of the world on a table and he moved the pieces round - this isn’t playing in the whole world.

Enjoyable

Dont waste your time

Worst Ryan novel yet, even allowing for the suspension of disbelieve. Most annoying is the constant recaping of the characters background every few minutes which IMO is a complete waste of time. The last few Ryan books haven't been great but this one is a new low. They shouldn't be allowed to use Tom Clancy's name on these books anymore, because they bear no resemblence to the original books.

Jack is not superman but very entertaining

the Tom Clancy legacy should be kept alive by going to the cleverness of the old books and moving away from the superhero persona that Jack has become. Jack is supposed to be clever but the books are making him to infallible in brown and not in brain

not so great

an odd balance between incredible minutia, and a rush to finish the story left me with a feeling of being cut to soon.
I missed Jackbinteractions with the rest of the capus, it was very brief

These stories are getting ridiculous

The near superhuman climax reads more like Matthew Riely than Tom Clancy. I wish they'd go back to the epic plots that ended with Clancy. The ghost written stories are getting more ridiculous with each itteration. Still enjoyable, but not what it once was.
