Tom Clancy has started this series - Net Force - but it has deteriorated into a series of incoherent books that do not show anything similar to what Mr. Clancy offered in the golden era of his career. I believe most books after the initial one were written by others. This one is about a lot of separate stories, but mostly about unknown hackers entering into highly protected military Virtual Reality software and crashing them. The Net Force goes after them. At the same time several threads are un ...more

I've read a number of the NetForce books and at first I really liked them. At first I really enjoyed the vision of gadgets and technological gizmos in the future. But the scenarios have become tired. Since it had been a while since I'd read a NetForce novel there were a few new characters, but there were essentially copies of the characters they replaced.
Not my favorite of the Net Force series. Trying to get into the new immersion in minutiae about characters, without real character development. Narrative time could be better spent in really spinning the yarn, imo.

Not sure I'll read Net Force again unless really desperate.

Okay, I'm giving this a four, but I happened to notice that it's got a 1 on Amazon. This book is probably best read if you've read the whole series, and have room for a lot of the soap opera aspects of the story. It finally catches up to modern times, more or less, with a scenario that includes Chinese hackers, and the effect that has on the US-Chinese relationship (only mildly discussed, but there). I liked it as much as I liked the others, but I definitely get the sense I'm in the minority. An ...more

Someone hacked a top secret Pentagon wargame and Cyber-Nations web site. Net Force was taken over by the Military to find the hacker.

I liked that this book had more of the web-walking that first intrigued me to the series.
