Product Description

Amazon Review

The Teeth of the Tiger answers, vigourously, the question of what a Tom Clancy thriller would look like in the post-9/11 era. A new generation of the Ryan family takes the field, operating with considerably more ruthlessness and fewer constraints against Islamic fundamentalist killers and the money men who fund them. Jack Ryan's nephews, a Marine and an FBI man, are the hit men and his son the controlling intelligence behind their choice of targets, as revenge is taken for a set of vicious assaults on American civilians. There is a lot of background knowledge at work here--Clancy knows his stuff when it comes to people-smuggling and financial transfers--and a certain understanding of what makes both kinds of killer tick. Both religion and the idea of America are things for which men are prepared to kill and die--Clancy is at times scarily certain politics give him insight into the modern world. You read him for the occasional flurries of exciting action, but he also has something interesting to tell us about the frame of mind of his more devoted fans. --Roz Kaveney --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Unfortunately Teeth of the Tiger can only be described as another downward step on the alarmingly declining career of Tom Clancy. Much shorter than most of his earlier work, this novel still takes an age to really get going and much of the book seems to be used as little more than a platform for the author’s own political (very right wing) agenda.
The story is based on the highly improbable premise that America’s secret new spy agency will employ, purely by coincidence, Jack Ryan’s son and two of his cousins. Little effort is made in the development of these characters and some of the dialogue between them is excruciatingly, painfully, embarrassingly bad with…
“You packin?”
“Bet your bippy bro. You?”
“Hang a big roger on that.”
…typical of the sort of rubbish perpetrated in this book.
The plot is one of Islamic terrorists attacking America and an unofficial new agency which executes them without reference to judge or jury. This is far from ambitious compared with Clancy’s earlier work and the entire novel comes across as being a very transparent attempt to articulate and justify his own, obviously extreme, ideas. The action scenes are neither original nor particularly exciting and the story frequently becomes lost in meaningless descriptions of car journeys and other unnecessary digressions.
As a former Clancy fan I take no pleasure in dismissing this book as dull, repetitive flag waving rubbish. Much the same can be said of Clancy’s last few books such as Red Rabbit, The Bear and the Dragon and Rainbow Six and it is amazing to think how far this author has declined from his peak with classics like Red Storm Rising and The Cardinal of the Kremlin.

I have always been a Clancy fan and eagerly await each offering. Iactually liked Red Rabbit although his recent work has certainly not beenchallenging. I used to have to work to get through the first third of aClancy novel and then became obsessed by it. Now it has all the pull ofchick lit and my 8 year old son has been reading bits of it! I kept TOTTuntil I had a weeks holiday and was really looking forward to it. I keptwaiting for it to get better and it never did. In places it was totallyimplausible and like a plot a child would come up with that hasn't beenthought through. Then I began to think that it must have been a ghostwriter. I can't believe that a master such as Clancy could produce thisand let it be printed. THANK YOU TO THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE LEFT NEGATIVERESPONSES - it made me realise that it was really as awful as I thought!

What is going on with Tom Clancy? I haven't read "Red Rabbit" yet but judging by the reviews I don't think I'll bother. His first five books were excellent but this is absolute, complete, rubbish. The story is so thin as to be almost transparent, based around a whole bunch of unlikely coincidences. The characters have no real development, and two brothers who end each sentence with "bro" and use phrases like "Bet your bippy, bro" and "Hang a big rodger on that" become increasingly annoying to the point of severe irritation the more you read on. The book also ends (nowhere?) where one of the earlier books would have just started getting going - it's like he was in a rush to finish writing it. Having said all this, I did find it hard to put down after I got to the last third of the book, but overall it was a disappointment and relief to finish it - know what I mean 'bro?

Make no mistake - as an avid Clancy fan I still found this book a good read. Clancy is, for the most part, still in a different league for details and well constructed plots.
But.......I was left, ultimately, feeling disapointed on 2 counts. (1) whilst good, and definately better than Red Rabbit, it is no where near as good as the Jack Ryan and Clark novels; and (2) it's a bit short: the book seems to come to an end at an unnatural point, just as things are getting more interesting; this book is half the thickness of previous Clancy epics and I was left wondering if the original book had been split in two for the benefit of sales and profit. Probably just me being cynical!
To sum up: still good, but could be so much better. Lets hope Clancy returns to his own high standards with his next book.

I can't remmember the last time I was this dissapointed with a book. It's nothing more than a knee jerk reaction to 9/11 and I wouldnt be surprised if Clancy wrote the entire book on 9/12 while watching CNN. It's racist, offensive and contains nothing that makes his earlier books so enjoyable. The plot is EXACTLY the same as red rabbit! A Ryan being introduced to the intelligance community and then jaunting around Europe. But the line that most annoyed me is when of our 'hero`s' uses the line "what have we ever done to them?" when viewing the carnage at the mall. I'm not condoning terrorist actions but this clown seems to think that the US sends marines all over the world to feed the hungry and clothe the poor! I pray to God that rather than this being Clancy`s personal view that he is instead trying to tell us how ignorant Americans are; but I wouldn't bet on it. Petty, boring and anti everything non-american; avoid this as you would do the black death.
