I drive allot and books help pass the long miles
I read some of his most recent books and decided to start from the beginning and read them all in order
good writing, decent plot, but gets predictable and some of the dialogue is annoying. good performance.
I enjoy spy, military, psychological, technical and fiction based in reality and science. I really value intimate, thorough writing.
Probably not. I like Clancy alot and there are many better ones. I wouldn't risk their interest with this one. It's good just not good enough compared to the others.
Absolutely. I love the amount of detail. Many people complain about Clancy being wordy but it paints a better picture for me and violence/action is ALWAYS written effectively. Detailed enough to illustrate the event but he doesnt dwell so long that it muddies the action.
I dont believe so. He was quite effective but not remarkable.
:/ Elements of one of the conclusions.( NO SPOILERS, dont worry).
Disappointing. I understand it was suppose to speak on character but it made it unbelievable for me. I was more baffled than... proud. Only time it didnt feel real.
Very Slow, very detailed. I enjoyed the investigative element and the cause and effect domino feel of the book. It makes the action that much more satisfying. Its a slow crawl to violence. Some of it even comes out of no where. And the psychological torment of the situation on the characters was FANTASTIC!... except for that element i mentioned in the last question.
Top 5, easily top 5
A good 90% of Tom Clancy's books are amazing and can only be compared to each other.
The book is already a film, far better than the film though.
I grew up on Jack Ryan movies, Hunt For Red October, Clear and Present Danger, Patriot Games, and Op Center. The book is far superior to the movie, and Scott Brick did a great job bringing the book to audio book. If you are a Clancy fan, I highly recommend this audi book.
It was an interesting book. I struggled keeping up with all the characters who they where and what they did. But that's a problem I have with a lot of novels.. Apart from that I really enjoyed this one.
