Great book. Well done in the Clancy tradition
As a Clancy fan, this was a major disappointment. Extremely slow. Way too much focus on the history and environment; hey Maden, we get it, you traveled to Bosnia and liked it. But seriously it was overkill and lost me.
Also, whoever edited this book should be questioned. How many times did he write “iWatch”?! Seriously?! It’s 2018 and the “Apple Watch” has been out for years! One time I can understand, but throughout the book was embarrassing.
Overall, I have read Maden’s other Ryan book and was also disappointed. I wish they would find another author. So far Mark Greaney is by far the best shadow author.
Overall the story line took to long to develop. If I wanted s history book, I would go back to graduate school!
Like all Tom Clancy novels, you will not be disappointed by this novel. The novel grips you as soon as you pick it up. You learn very quickly that you have no idea who are the good guys and who are the bad guys. If you decide to read this book you had better have some good alibis as to why you did not show up for work. Once you begin this novel, you will be unable to put it down until you complete it!
... not enough action. I almost didn’t finish this one because I was bored.
Jim Cerone The Perfect Host
Apologies to the author, but if I wanted a history lesson, I’d read non-fiction. Slow, dry and boring.
So a novel about Jack Ryan chasing after a woman, being an idiot and then saving the day. This was a pathetic extension of a great storyline.
This was a good read, though not great and well below Clancy at his best.
but half the text is a travelog and history of the balkins
