Publisher's Summary

Newly elected, Jack Ryan has found that being President is not easy: domestic pitfalls await him at every turn; there's a revolution in Liberia; the Asian economy is going down the tubes; and now, in Moscow, someone may have tried to assassinate the chairman of the SVR - the former KGB - with a rocket-propelled grenade. Were the potential assassins political enemies, the Russian Mafia, or disaffected former KGB? Or is something far more dangerous at work here? While Ryan dispatches his most trusted eyes and ears, including black ops specialist John Clark, to find out the truth of the matter, forces in China are moving ahead with a plan of truly audacious proportions. If they succeed, the world will never look the same again.

    "great story but too.........long"

    Great Story well written and plotted. It was long....... At times I couldn't remember what all had happened earlier in the book. it's like two stories joined together.

    "Great Story, Oh Jack can you be our real president"

    The reality that a major war could start with the killing of two civilians by police is not too far fetched.

    "Entertaining"

    The ending felt like the author was up against a hard deadline...or perhaps wanted to move onto a new project

    A middle-aged romantic who grew up reading Heinlen, Louis L'Amour and Richard Hooker. Expect and honest opinion, even if it's not PC.

    "Not Clancy's Best - By Far"

    It's hard to kick somebody when he's dead, but for any living Authors who want to take Tom's place: you can't keep saying that someone is a good, decent Christian - and then have every other word out of their mouth be the F-bomb, and also start each sentence by taking God's name in vain. Kind of makes me wonder if Tom actually knew what being a Christian means and where he is right now.

    "slow...."
    What did you like best about The Bear and the Dragon? What did you like least?

    long engaging story, a little predictable, not many twists in the plot...


    Would you be willing to try another book from Tom Clancy? Why or why not?

    yes most of his work I have enjoyed


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Michael Prichard?

    Lou diamond Philips


    Was The Bear and the Dragon worth the listening time?

    mostly, but I will not return to it like I have many other books


    Any additional comments?

    so much unnecessary swearing! why Clancy?
