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.

Entertaining


I am a fsn of Clancy. The guy's stuff is pretty good, got eorse the more success he got. He is knoen as best at the "techno-thtiller,"... like Grisham sns the legsl novrl, or Fleming snd the spy novel. I think Vlsncy resesrchrd the heck out of everything, trying to br as suthrntic as he could. As research got easoer, Clancy got lost in it, snd buried himsrlf in technicsl details instesd of just writing. The guy started to brleivr his own hype aftet awhilr. This book is early enough that he just wrote...good. It reads like a 'Death Wish' or 'Taken' kind of vigilsnte story. Kind of silly but satisfying

Even Better the Second Time

I read this book when it was first published. Loved it then, love it now. I would read it again, however, I'd forego the audio version. Why? Because the quality of the recording is not great. The Narrator is mediocre at best but more importantly, the recording quality sucks. It's fuzzy and somewhat distorted. Kind of like listening to an old 78 record. It detracts from the story because it makes it hard to understand at times. Otherwise, it's classic Clancy and they don't get much better than that. Still waiting for the movie.

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...

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.

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.

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.

The Origins of John Clark

If you could sum up Without Remorse in three words, what would they be?

Brilliant, dramatic, excellent

Who was your favorite character and why?

John Clark because in this book we meet him for the first time and we see how he got to be the man he is in all the Jack Ryan books

Which character – as performed by Michael Prichard – was your favorite?

Michael Prichard is one of the founding fathers of the Audiobook Industry! He performed the entire book with great talent. All the characters are very well brought to life....

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

YES

Any additional comments?

One of my favourite books of all times, written by one of my favourite authors of all times, performed by one of my favourite narrators of all times! Great story, deep characters, brilliantly written, performed with elegance

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!
