4.0 out of 5 stars A book for all espioniage fans
"Ryan was nearly killed twice in half an hour"
As soon as the reader reads this first sentence of this book, he or she knows that she will not be able to put the book down until the last assassination has failed.
When Jack Ryan, a history teacher from America, foils a plan to kidnap the "Prince of Wales", he immediately becomes the number...

3.0 out of 5 stars Engrossing and yet a bit embarrassing in parts!
I am 3/4 of the way through this book and it's very engrossing, I must admit. However, the parts concerning the Royal Family had me squirming in embarrassment. The Duke of Edinburgh would never escort someone other than close family from a hospital, and the Queen would not accommodate at Buck House the family of someone who'd ostensibly saved the lives of her son and...

2.0 out of 5 stars Pathetic, 5 Jun 2013
By 
J. Floyd "floss" (Dorset, UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Patriot Games (Paperback)
What? The scenes with the Royal Family are cringemaking but the real stupidity comes with the attack on Ryan's house. We are told that rebels' van is stopped and searched. Just yards later the ULA is streaming out - dozens of them. When they shoot [with UZIs, a sub-machine gun which is a weapon notoriously inaccurate at anything over 50 yards - they kill or severely wound virtually the entire FBI, Secret Service and CIA contingents, losing next to nothing themselves. The whole scene is pathetic and deplorably written, Is this truly the same author who gave us 'Clear and present danger' and 'The hunt for Red October'? Virtually unbelievable.

Almost worse is the result of the sea chase when who should appear but Breckenridge with dozens of Marines. Stretches credulity to virtual breaking point. Dearie, dearie me. Don't buy it unless you want a good laugh.

Tom Clancy's books are always a great read.
This one did not disappoint. Even though it was a used book the condition was very good.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Clancy's best, 10 Feb 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Patriot Games (Paperback)
Nice first ten pages and last fifty, but the rest is rather boring. Very slow paced and a few huindred pages are wasted on unexciting information. At the end, however, the climax is unbearable. I recommend this book if you are very patient and like high climaxes.
