Dead or Alive by Tom Clancy
There are some authors, as a librarian, I feel that I am duty bound to read. It is with this duty in mind that I forced myself to listen to a Tom Clancy book. I was prepared to hate it. But, alas, I truly loved it and can’t wait for the next one.
There are six or seven storylines weaving and breaking and coming back together and up until the end you were puzzling through how they would fit together and how the Campus (the kind of outside the government yet still government special-ops agency) would stop this multi-pronged terrorist attack on America. Wow.
I think my enjoyment had a lot to do with Lou Diamond Philips who I didn’t think would be a great narrator, but wow. He got every accent right (and there were lots of them) and you could tell all the multiple characters apart just by listening. I would now listen to anything he narrates.
