There was a clear and present danger that I wasn t going to finish this.I don t watch soap operas I used to I d get home and General Hospital would be on Mom was heavily invested in the Luke Laura saga, so I got stuck with it Consequently I know a soap opera when I see one and Clear and Present Danger is a soap opera How so It jumps from character to character, from scene to scene Some of it s nearly as melodramatic as a soap, but I won t go that far in my analogy Mainly the issue There was a clear and present danger that I wasn t going to finish this.I don t watch soap operas I used to I d get home and General Hospital would be on Mom was heavily invested in the Luke Laura saga, so I got stuck with it Consequently I know a soap opera when I see one and Clear and Present Danger is a soap opera How so It jumps from character to character, from scene to scene Some of it s nearly as melodramatic as a soap, but I won t go that far in my analogy Mainly the issue is in the episodic nature of the storytelling The scenes are big time ADHD in how they flitter back and forth This has an adverse affect on character development In fact, it seems as if Clancy attempts to counter this with info dumps Often he introduces a brand new character, who may not even be particularly important, with a mountainous info dump This is Joe Schmoe Joe was born in Eastbumfuq, IL, went to school atand a minute later Mr Schmoe is dead I know it s a writer s attempt to instill an instant reader connection to the character so that his death means something, but it doesn t work for me I don t give a shit if a thousand such Joe Schmoes die at the hands of the baddest of bad guys Nice try, but perhaps the issue is that you re trying to pack too much stuff into an already chunky book Emotional bonds take time to develop Okay, I ve been too nasty those far Let s look at Clancy s good pointsAction is his strong suit He puts you right in it Whether it s firing a gun from a helicopter or stalking an enemy in the jungle, you re in the shit with the characters However, if you were to debate that his strongest point is his research and application of military technical details within his books, I would concede Guns, ships, helicopters, military rank and decorum, wartime politics, spy craft, covert missions, etc etc etc phew eee This book grunts and oozes the stuff I can see how military buffs, special ops fanatics, and gun nuts would go gah gah over a book like this We ve all got our little fetishes and Clancy provides the porn for violent techies Before you start calling me a liberal, hippy, pussy, tree hugger or any of that shit, just shut the fuck up I ve owned guns since I was a kid I just don t get a woody over firearms any I shot that load when I was pre teen and moved on But I guess if reading a Clancy novel satisfies the sort of person that gets off on that shit and it helps them get it out of their system, well then I m glad these books exist Okay, back to the nasty Where the F is Jack Ryan He s barely mentioned in the first half of the book and then when he does show up it s only to look around and ask, what s going on And that is really his only purpose in the book, and it s purposeless Sure, the main character fumbling about trying to figure out what s going on works great for murder mysteries, but that s because we the reader also don t know what s going on We re finding out the truth with them But here we already know what s going on because that s what s being related in the main story That s theinteresting part Every time Clancy cuts to Jack the book bogs right down into a full on snorefest Like I said at the top, I almost didn t finish this After about the midway point the whole freakin thing turned into one of those snorefests for me The writing was only adequate, the storytelling too jumpy, the spot lighted details not my cup of tea Perhaps if I spiked my tea with testosterone Nah I d only end up inadvertently ripping the book in half out of sheer excitement Rating 2.5 stars I generously gave it three stars only because I m in a good mood and GR s rating system is ridgedNote upon the author s death Seems like it s becoming a thing where if an author s book sits on my nightstand waiting to be read forthan a couple weeks, the author is doomed to die Yikes Just re watched the movie last night, and I thought about the book While Han Solo did pull off quite a few of Clancy s movies with great flair back in the early 90s, Clear and Present Danger notwithstanding, the book is still better Mostly because it portrays Clark and Chavez in aprofound, emotional light than they are shown onscreen As a techno thriller, it s relatively low on materiel details, but the action is still solid It s also a beginning of The Fellowship of the Oval Ring, get Just re watched the movie last night, and I thought about the book While Han Solo did pull off quite a few of Clancy s movies with great flair back in the early 90s,

on.Overall, it s a decent read, so if you are into dramatized, Gung ho books that mix politics with action with honest Republican values with a simple, carefree approach to resolving world troubles through luck and Chucknorrisness and heavy caliber guns, then this is pretty good entertainment Don t expect tears or any soulwrenching chapters, though.Now, can we limerick Clancy Yes we can Anything can be limerickized It s Rule 34d of the Internet.When Chavez and Clark to Bogota flewThe ire of drug lords they drewWith the company s checkRyan saved their neckAnd so they became a damn good crewRegardsomely yours,Igor A Jack Ryan in which we see quite little of Jack Ryan It s about the US war on Colombian drugs and it s quite long And honestly, that s about all I can remember about this particular one Because this was one that I did not re read and I m guessing that also says something As a recommendation to anyone who hasn t and wants to experience the Jack Ryan series, I d say stop at book 8 For the non completist I would say read The Hunt for Red October, The Cardinal of the Kremlin The Sum of A A Jack Ryan in which we see quite little of Jack Ryan It s about the US war on Colombian drugs and it s quite long And honestly, that s about all I can remember about this particular one Because this was one that I did not re read and I m guessing that also says something As a recommendation to anyone who hasn t and wants to experience the Jack Ryan series, I d say stop at book 8 For the non completist I would say read The Hunt for Red October, The Cardinal of the Kremlin The Sum of All Fears 4.0 to 4.5 stars Excellent Tom Clancy novel in which Jack Ryan and the Mr Clark take on the Columbian drug cartels This was a terrific read from beginning to end and confirmed by opinion of Tom Clancy as a master of the political thriller. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ME I FINISHED IT.Next time, someone tell me to just watch the movie For the Pop Sugar Challenge, this was a book you started but never finished Review to follow I wanted to really like this book because I ve heard such good things about it Also, I like action and military stories, etc So I went in very excited But, I got a bitthan 200 pages into it when I just had to stop I probably could have made it, had it not been for the massive amounts of swear words specifically F words I really, REALLY hate swearing Maybe it s the father in me, or the saint lurking somewhere within, but it just grates on me I used to work in a factory making styrof I wanted to really like this book because I ve heard such good things about it Also, I like action and military stories, etc So I went in very excited But, I got a bitthan 200 pages into it when I just had to stop I probably could have made it, had it not been for the massive amounts of swear words specifically F words I really, REALLY hate swearing Maybe it s the father in me, or the saint lurking somewhere within, but it just grates on me I used to work in a factory making styrofoam, where people would swear like that, so hearing swear words like that again brings back some unpleasant memories Futher, as a writer, I ve always felt that a person who swears a great deal is not intelligent or creative enough to think of anything better Now, I know he probably is trying to reflect the real world, and the fact that soldiers mostly do use that kind of language But in the story, EVERYONE, including Jack Ryan and the higher ups, had the same dirty mouths Maybe my circles are cleaner than others, but I know that not everyone swears Quite unrealistic, and it heavily detracted from the story.Otherwise, the story is intelligent and interesting, and very well researched TOO well researched in many parts The story is bogged down, when not riddled with F words and other curses with a lot of detail about military weapons, vehicles, military operations Some detail makes it feel real, but sometimes Mr Clancy goes on for pages and pages of endless details, until it seems almost pointless Like many fantasy novels, he gives feasts of technical details when a small, conservative meal here and there would feel better.These two things ruin the story for me especially the swearing Because of this, I m getting rid of my Tom Clancy collection, and not reading anything else from him I don t want my kids to be reading such things, so therefore I should be reading them got to set an example, right Anyway, I really feel that such filth brings a bad spirit into the home Oh, I love this one The movie too was fanfuckingtastic. techincalities , , , CIA, FB , ,.
