THE BEAR AND THE DRAGON

by | Read by Frank Muller

Mystery & Suspense • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2000

This latest thriller featuring Jack Ryan, now U.S. President, seems to lose its way between Clancy's earlier novels, like Red October or Patriot Games and the later techno-thrillers of his Op-Center series. In abridgment the fast-paced story suffers from repeated scene changes between Washington, Moscow, and Beijing, with a dis-orienting dateline, acronym overload, and minimal character development. Frank Muller puts out an amazing performance, whipping off endless Chinese and Russian names--even in dialogue--as if they were his native tongue. But even this veteran narrator can't help listeners follow the plot or care much about the characters. R.F.W. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 01]
