Una nueva novela de Clancy, la tercera sobre las andanzas de Jack Ryan Jr. En esta ocasión hay amenaza de guerra nuclear, daguestaníes islámicos armados, una caza de la CIA contra sus propios agentes y unas cuantas historias paralelas más. Las novelas de Toma Clancy son buenas para lo que son buenas: pasar un rato muy entretenido y ver cómo hace Clancy (y su adlátere de turno) desfilar el mundo paralelo ante nuestros ojos. De vez en cuando, en sus novelas, Clancy hace paradas y detalla de manera bastante técnica técnicas de espionaje y policiales. En esta novela hay muchas páginas detalladas sobre cómo es un seguimiento en coche o sobre cómo se colocan cámaras espía en una casa. Para los que tenemos cierto interés, están muy bien.

Por supuesto, Clancy ofrece su habitual sobredosis de barras y estrellas forevah, hay que tolerárselo porque si no no escribiría estas novelas. Hoy mismo, 4 de diciembre, sale publicada la siguiente de la serie: China invade Taiwán. Promete. Esta ha sido muy entretenida. ( )

No breaks on right wing adventure plot ( )

I have read other books by Tom Clancy and enjoyed his story telling but I found this book really annoying. This book is a political bully pulpit. Tom uses this book to paint his right wing, conservative, hawkish opinions as the only appropriate government. If you are of this political stance you will probably like this book, otherwise avoid this propaganda. ( )

This is the story of Jack Ryan Jr's exploits out in the field as he transitions from analyst--a story we've heard before. This was an OK book. It isn't as good as the vintage Clancy; some say that the ghost writing and editor meddling have caused quality decrease. I'd say that what ever it is, this one is not as good as the Clancy classics. The most silly plot point, no one is going to recognize Jack Ryan, Jr. out in the field, when daddy's running for President, right? The detailed descriptions of military/intelligence components, in the true style of Clancy, leave little room for character development if the book is to be less thick than Exodus. And, read the 10 hour version, vice the 18 hour one. If this country's politicians are really as one-dimensional as Kealty, we're in trouble. It's a good blend of politics and action with a few familiar faces.The book brings back many familiar faces for another round and makes some money for an outsourced ghost writer and a meddling editor in NYC.

Tom Clancy's All-Star lineup is back. Jack Ryan, his son, Jack Jr., John Clark Ding Chavez and the rest of the Campus team are facing their greatest challenge ever. Jack Ryan, Sr. has made a momentous choice. He's running for President of the United States again and thus giving up a peaceful retirement to help his country in its darkest hour. But he doesn't anticipate the treachery of his opponent, who uses trumped up charges to attack one of Ryan's... ( )
