's review

it was ok

President Jack Ryan & Son vs a Putin-like Russian President in this slow paced, overly detailed thriller. I've always maintained that the late Tom Clancy was badly in need a page slashing editor to trim his otherwise excellent books into more readable prose. Unfortunately, this book is no exception to the existing template even with Mark Geary's assistance.

Cathy DuPont Ed: That's the reason I quit reading Clancy, his descriptions went on and on and on and...reminded me of Michener who I loved except...

Nice review and thanks for the 'heads up.'

message 2: by Ed (new) - rated it 2 stars

Ed I stopped reading him years ago as well Cathy but was hoping for sharper editing here with Mark Geary involved. That didn't happen.

Thanks for your feedback. It's much appreciated....Ed
