YOU MAY NOT AGREE WITH HIS POLITICS, BUT THIS IS Tom Clancy AT HIS BEST!,
This review is from: The Cardinal of the Kremlin (Paperback)
I do not like Tom Clancy as a person. I despise his totalitarian amoral politics and I canNOT stand him slapping his readers with them in his latest oversized and underwritten duds.
However, Tom Clancy was once an EXCELLENT technothriller writer. He might not have invented the genre, yet he launched it into the stratosphere.
This is HIS BEST BOOK and it is actually very good.
The mid-80's Cold-War atmosphere, the paranoia, the double-agents, the clandestine methods and the hardware are all expertly presented.
Now, him being, well...Clancy there still are stereotypes and bigoted characters galore. Deciding to overcome this however, the reader can actually enjoy this one.
Do not judge CARDINAL OF THE KREMLIN based on his deteriorated career.
