We love Elmer at home and I thought the Elmer application would be amazing too. However, the application is unintuitive and fiddly and cannot be used by a child. There is far too much zooming in and out of pages required. There has been too small imagination place into how to create this work well on a tablet. Sorry people.
Not good quality CD, disc two wouldn't play on my Bose CD player, the case is not good quality & simple 2 break, even while using extreme care removing CD from case. I have CD'S 10 years old that still play & sound amazing on my Bose, they're thick CD'S. Don't create them like they use 2. I returned this CD, even tho songs were great.
The Essential by Teddy Pendergrass album has all the hit single that I hear on the radio sometimes and what had drawn to me topurchase this album was the hit single TKO which was the single that I would hear over the airwaves every once in a while.
Is the reason I bought my first bag of Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee. Loaded with conservative ideology, Russophilia and amazing coffee, paired with some scenes that may have been written by a twelve year old, what's not to love?Seriously, though, I loved this book. If you're a millennial liberal, don't bother, it will create you mad.
A very long and unnecessarily drawn out novel which included too much detail about battle planning and the different weapons used. U.S. casualties were unrealistically low. Author did not recognize the U.S. National Missile Defense system. Not believable that the Russians would let the Chinese to retreat from their soil without retribution. I read the book to the end to search out what would happen; it held my attention. This book is not up to Clancy's past books for credibility.
As always Tom Clancy was a Master Story Teller in the Bear and The Dragon. This is a amazing read, full of action and detail most authors can only dream of. This latest installment of the Jack Ryan series is an awesome read. HOWEVER!!!!The Kindle ver has a lot of errors. I have the hardback of this book and it is a lot cleaner then the Kindle Version. First it's listed as a John Clark Book. It's not. Look at the Hardback. Second, there are more spelling errors/ formatting errors then seems possible. I think Clancy is turning over in his grave over this. For instance several chapters, sentences and words begin out with an additional letter or the the wrong letter as this true example here. "Fit was a wark night . . ." Instead of "It was a dark night." It doesnt detract from the awesome story, it just makes it a small annoying as you read along, especially as you reach the end and realize just how a lot of errors there are. I have a first edition hardback that doesn't have that a lot of errors. Not sure what happened. But you should have fun it as long as you don't mind the errors. Enjoy!
I rate Clancy's Classic, early stories five stars. Hunt for Red October and Cardinal of the Kremlin are the best, Clear and Show Danger and Without Remorse are also amazing tales with amazing characters, well written. This book shows the weaker side of a formula followed for too long. The Ryan hero is now fully emersed in a fantasy globe and characters that were filled out in earlier books are now hollow shadows. And, the gratuitous and Jack Ryan's increasing use of foul language don't ring real compared to Clancy's earlier stories. I wonder if, at the time of this book, Clancy started using uncredited "collaborators" to boost his writing output? This story still provides some entertaining reading, but it is far less compelling than the earlier work that created Tom Clancy the highest standard in spy/techno adventures.
The Bear and the Dragon is the culmination of a trilogy within the Jack Ryan series that is peak Tom Clancy, IMHO. Debt of Honor, Executive Orders, and Bear and Dragon are subsequent books (with a parenthetical detour in Rainbow Six) concerning the Japanese, Iranian, and Chinese plot (with India’s help) versus the US, Saudis, and Russians. Ryan is the national security advisor in Debt of Honor and is President in EO and B&D. It’s probably helpful to read the earlier Ryan books to know the characters, but this trilogy is a very satisfying conclusion to the Ryan saga. The books after this are decent, but not peak TC/JR like this trilogy and the ones before are the best of the “prequels” to read before this trilogy:Hunt for Red October (Soviets)Patriot Android games (Terrorists)Cardinal of the Kremlin (Soviets)Clear and Show Danger ( Cartel)Sum of All Fears (Terrorists)Without Remorse is focused on John Kelly/Clark and is by far my least favorite book in the Ryan Storm Rising is outside of the Ryan saga and is actually my #1 favorite Clancy book.
Worst "Tom Clancy" book ever written. Tom Clancy would never have allowed this pile of garbage to be published. Whoever really wrote it has no idea about military equipment or operations. Seems like it was written by a Sophomore in High School trying to obtain his grade from a D to a C.
Tom Clancy's books have always been a favorite. I loved Jack Ryan, and I know he was a central figure in this novel as well. However, it appears I no longer have the patience to read until it becomes interesting for me to continue. Couldn't hold up with the characters, and although I hate to say this, I was just plain bored. A book is "good" for me if it is difficult to place down.
I don't believe Clancy actually wrote this book. It isn't like his prior Ryan books. It's over 1000 pages, and if you deleted all the "f" words, it probably would have been 100 pages shorter. Not having references to and whores/prostitutes could have chop another 100 pages. He could have been just fine not adding useless filler to demonstrate his knowledge of history. I had a hard time even getting interested in it and almost gave up about 10 chapters into it. It finally did pick up and I stayed the course, despite multiple typo errors and repeated statements in various parts of the book. Evidently, even the editors couldn't obtain through it all. Very disappointing. I ordered two more of the books in the series at the same time and really hope they are much better (written by Greany). Of the 13 books that I have read of the Ryan/Ryan JR/Clark series of books, this is the first one I've given a negative rating on, as I normally love his books.
After reading the (mostly negative) reviews I didn't plan on reading this book, but then realized I wouldn't learn about the beginning of Campus, which is necessary to understand the background for the second book. I figured to decide myself if it was a 'bad' book or not, and was in for a pleasant surprise! While it lacks the detailed technical descriptions of previous books, this one was a quick paced, simple read and before I knew it, reached the end of the book. It ends with a cliffhanger, so I wonder if Clancy picks up the thread in the next book. Looking forward to continue reading the series.
I had read all of Clancy's earlier novel years ago. I place off reading this one due to tepid reviews. I finally got around to reading it,and agree with the negative reviews. There is too much time spent on essentially telling the reader what is in the minds of the characters. For instance, that POTUS took the job out of sense of duty, but he doesn't really wish to be president, or to be treated any differently than anyone else. The Chinese politburo members consider themselves superior to everyone else, and all that matters to them is their political and private survival. Amazing to know, but I didn't need to be browbeaten into understanding the method these rather cardboard characters think. Frankly, much of the book was boring in a method I've never experienced in a Clancy novel. When battle finally broke out, things picked up some. That's about the best thing I could say. I may have to reread "Red Storm Rising" or another "good" Clancy novel to obtain the poor taste out of my mind. This is the only book review I have submitted. I really felt allow down by this tedious novel.
This is a amazing collection for both hardcore fans as well as those who are unfamiliar with this dynamic, one-of-a-kind, once in a lifetime male vocalist. I was unaware (until the UNSUNG episode) that TP had released 8 solo albums that went platinum - for an r&b artist at that time, this is a phenomenal fete and definitely speaks to a time when r&b fans truly supported the artists of this genre.Teddy had it all - charisma, movie-star looks and that voice!! This 2-disc set is chock full of hits from his days as the lead of the Blue Notes to his smoking hot days as a solo artist (it's also amazing that singles he released after his accident are included).What I've always loved about TP is that he sounds like a MAN while too a lot of of the young male artists of today lean too heavily on their falsetto to evoke feeling, TP could do that while powerfully commanding a woman to "come here" or tenderly singing a duet with Whitney Houston.R.I.P. Teddy and thank you so much for the musical memories!
My cd collection (which is huge in number), is mostly Massive Metal with some other gneres. R&B is one of the generes I have fun when I am not listening to Metal. Teddy Pendergrass is one of those artists/singer, who set the standard for guys like Christopher Williams, Eric Gable, yes; and even Gerald Levert (in my opinion). I have cds by each of those artists. Teddy Pendergrass had an awesome vocal ability and with such passion when he sang. He left us a lot of amazing memorable songs. THis Essentail Collection is amazing and well place together. The tracks follow each other consitanatly from his early releases to his later releases.I want I had all his cd rleases, but this collection will do for now. IT will provide a lot of hours of listening enjoyment. If you don't or cannot obtain all his releases, this is the next best thing. It has every known "hit" that I know of from Teddy. God bless him and hold him.
There is an eleven track difference between this 2 disc set and the first 2 disc set that I reviewed. Truthfully, I REALLY didn't care. This is Teddy P., and there could have been a one track difference, this would have been bought regardless. Teddy own these songs!!! With some of the selections coming from his move to Electra, to some of them from his stint with Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes, this was a truly ESSENTIAL collection that I totally enjoyed and sung to. Melody like this just isn't made anymore. Teddy, I totally loved it!!!!
