Once again, Tom Clancy manages to add new twists to the alternate U.S. history he initiated in Paperback edition.
More information that I want in a novel, September 15, 2003 Reviewer: theoriginaljfmmb from Cumming, GA United States I have never read one of Tom Clancy's books. I have seen most of the movies that were made from them and have enjoyed most of them. I was moved to read this one after the flack over the much publicized "plot changes" that were prompted by sensitivity to the 9/11 tragedies. Curiosity led me to buy the book and read it to see what the changes were. Yes, the movie did change the bad guys from Arab Muslims to some neo-nazi types, but I never understood how detailed these books were. I have decided to stick to the movie versions. I cannot fault Clancy for his writing, it's just more input than I want. I really don't care about the exact sequence of how a nuclear devise explodes. I really don't want to know the manufacturing process of that devise in detail. I gave the book 3 stars because (at least for me) if I skip the pages and pages of technical detail the book is entertaining. I certainly don't want to try and chase folks away from this book if this type of detail is your cup of tea. But if you're like me, then just wait until they make it into a movie
