Maybe I’ll get back into that genre —Clancy just left me more and more and more disappointed.
His early stuff was great, and then it plunged downhill after that. Also whenever they’d make his stuff into movies they were usually stupid —Sum of All Fears terrorists were blonde guys?
I agree the past few Clancy novels were no where near as good as the first five or six.
He has a new one coming out. I think the last few have been pretty good, though not of the caliber of “Hunt for Red October”.
Just finished Clancy’s Dead or Alive, now am reading Locked On. Both are very similar in style to his early novels and are very timely to today. He is back on his A game.
