it was amazing
bookshelves: fiction

I got this book for Christmas as a teenager and did not sleep as I read it. It was such an engrossing read especially as a teenager in the 1980's. My guess is a teenager today would not understand why it had such an impact as the Cold War is something they study in history. Tom Clancy was so detailed in setting up the plot, you had to push through the many chapters setting up a climax. I have always considered a Clancy book like a roller coaster, you go up a long hill really slow until that moment when you crest the top and take off on a wild twisty, curvy ride. That crest usually happened about midnight which meant I did not sleep until morning.
