    I ll do the same review for all Clancy s novels because they re all pretty much the same Very long, very detailed, and after a while, very repetitive If you stop after just a few of his books you d probably give them 4 or 5 stars, but beyond that they start to grate Especially where Jack Ryan is involved I mean, Cl

    This early Jack Ryan prequel certainly evokes the 1980 s setting from whence it was written, though in a great way Whilst on holiday in London, Jack inadvertently prevents an assassination attempt on members of the royal family by a faction group of the IRA.The fact that it was the Prince and Princess of Wales alongside t

    Somehow, people like this book Other people complain about the slow plot, or the level of detail, or the lack of action I was perfectly fine with all of this, and in fact, I quite liked the idea that injuries were taken seriously and meant that people were out of action for a long time The thing that makes this book truly bad is

    Dude books I call them palette cleansers because sometimes I just get tired of reading about FEELINGS and EMOTIONS and THOUGHTS This book didn t have any of those other things It had intrigue, machismo, swearing, guns, and violence Pretty much pg 13 level, nothing too too much.But it also had bravery, mystery, and for reals the main gu

    Irish bashing aside, a solid thriller Can t deny I had a good time with the sun, not in the sun Too much fun Not that you need to know any of that Details are all mine.

    Executive Summary After enjoying The Hunt for Red October, I had high hopes for this book, and found myself a bit disappointed.Audio book I ve listened to one or two books read by Scott Brick He s a decent reader, but nothing special He does a passable English and Irish accent here, but not in anyway to make the characters of similar accents disting

    I heard that Tom Clancy hated the movie this book inspired Having read it, i can understand why Nobody likes it when someone takes your idea and makes it enjoyable This is another one of Tom Clancy s political statements disguised as a novel, with the IRA representing communism The Pacing is dull, the story unbelievable and at times hilarious I suppose tho

    When a book is over one hundred pagesthan it should be and a lot of the villainous aspects are predictable, it makes for an underwhelming read This is the predicament that I found myself in with this story For starters, it is longer than it needs to be which threw the pacing off and felt like it had a lot of filler pages added which wasn t necessary Also, I was a

    3.5 to 4.0 stars Third Jack Ryan book published but first in terms of internal chronology as the events take place before those in The Hunt for Red October While I enjoyed some of the later Ryan novelsespecially those in which John Clark and his crew played a major part , this is still a quality thriller and certainly worth a read A pretty good Clancy novel is still muc

    If there s anything better than classic Clancy I have yet to find it Damn but this was good, a perfect balance of action, intrigue, and investigation Listed as the first Jack Ryan adventure, the old girl holds up well.
