Tom Clancy remains one of my favorite authors and Point of Impact is another installment of the Netforce (Number 5) series. Previously I have listened to the audio book version of several of the Netforce books. Unfortunately, I listened to them out-of-order that Clancy had intended. Well, a few months ago, I sorted the books into the order intended and have been listening to them again. I'm about half way thru the series. Since the Netforce characters continue thru the whole series, it makes alo...more

The fifth Net Force book was highly amusing, though not one of Perry's best. The book revolves around a recreational drug that makes the user superhumanly powerful and quick, but tends to also cause them to go on murderous rampages. It's never quite clear why Net Force is involved, other than to let Perry go on a couple of drug rants, but still, it's got the cool characters, hot guns, and interesting scenarios typical of the series. The final military confrontation has now evolved entirely into...more

Hurá! Zase žádný megapadouch, s touhou vládnout světu. Tentokrát geniální chemik s drogou, o kterou se perou farmaceutické společnosti, vláda, armáda i feťáci. Výborně prokreslené charaktery (konečně!), hodně ujeté účinky drogy (taky super) a hlavně - soupeření agentur, dvojití agenti a akce. Hodně akce. Vypadá to, že Perry se konečně přestal držet mantinelů, které vymezil Clancy - a to je sakra dobře.
Ještě ubrat toho patosu a dám 5/5 :-)
I like most of Tom Clancy's book (the newer ones somewhat less) and I tried to read this book. I have been aware of the fact that it's not written by Clancy when I bought this book, but his name is on it, and I thought, maybe it fits with his own books.

Not so. At least not to me. The style is very different, and I just couldn't bring myself to like it. So no more Net Force for me.
Not as good as some of the previous ones in this series. On the plus side there were no long chapters about General Howard's son and his boomerang career.. On the downside there was very little 'Net' in this book and it could have been any other run of the mill law enforcement 'v' drug dealer novel.

Net force is asked to help find who created and is distributing a designer drug that makes one feel indistructible. Drug companies also what to get their hands on the formula and sell it to the military.
The plot concerns a designer drug that seems to be a combination of Meth, MDMA, steroids, Viagra….Producing amazing strength and no fear; drug companies want it along with a couple of governments….
A new kind of reading for me. Enjoyed. Easy read, but could have had a better ending
An easy quick read ... paperback is good beach book.
reasonably entertaining techno-thriller. Nice series.

Tom Clancy was an English major at Baltimore’s Loyola College. As a Maryland insurance broker with a passion for naval history, his dream of writing a novel came true with his first effort, The Hunt for Red October (1984).

He since wrote more than a dozen novels, which have a blend of realism and authenticity, intricate plotting, and razor-sharp suspense. Ten of the novels, including The Teeth of...more
