by Tom Clancy

The search for a stolen nuclear weapon on American soil sends Jack Ryan on a dangerous mission with global consequences in this #1 New York Times bestselling thriller.

Peace may finally be at hand in the Middle East, as Jack Ryan, Deputy Director of Intelligence for the CIA, lays the groundwork for a plan that could end centuries of conflict. But ruthless terrorists have a final, desperate card to play: a nuclear weapon hidden somewhere in the United States.

With one terrible act, distrust mounts, forces collide, and the floundering U.S. president seems unable to cope with the crisis. With the world on the verge of nuclear disaster, Ryan must frantically seek a solution—before the chiefs of state lose control of themselves and the world.

Great book. I highly recommend the Audible book. Scott Brick does a fantastic job of telling the story.

I'm probably one of the few that thought the movie was decent. That said, the book, as always, is infinitely better.

Was going to purchase it for $2, but I still had credit from the e-book settlement, so it was free for me. Thumbs up.

The statement is mostly true.

Though, I've read the popular Tom Clancy Jack Ryan book - 'The hunt for red October', and also watched the movie. I daresay I think that movie was better than the book. The book shows off an impressive amount of military tech research done by the author. But unfortunately I found it too dry. Pages after pages that I felt like skipping. The movie stripped out the extraneous parts. It was a good plot but too slow in the book. Plus, Sean Connery elevated the movie even more.

Of course, I read that book almost 15 years ago I think. Perhaps I'll think differently if I read it today.

I can't believe it either.... especially since they made the movie (2002) more than ten years after he wrote the book (1991).

I found the first ~100 pages (of the paperback version) to be excessively technical, like a thesis paper providing details of how to design and build a nuclear weapon. Hard to get through, but it did get easier to read after that.

This book is not bad, but isn't in my Top Three of Tom Clancy novels:
Red Storm Rising (Cold War confrontation brought to life)
The Cardinal of the Kremlin (excellent spy novel)
The Hunt for Red October (iconic modern submarine story)

This is a great book, but I do advise quickly skimming through all of the technical descriptions, unless you are really into that stuff. It really added a ton of pages that were unnecessary.

Oh, and Eff the movie. They changed way too much of the story with no real reason as to why. And Ben Affleck sucks.....

Loved the book but the movie was only half decent. They changed the plot from Islamic radicals to some loser Neo-Nazi trying to start world war 3. I think this was done right after the 9/11 attacks due to being PC. Also they made Jack Ryan much younger and not as experienced requiring a new mentor.

It would be amazing with todays technology to bring Red Storm Rising to movie screen. It would be an epic future war movie.

I always find Clancy books fun, though obviously they aren't exactly the highest level of literature. Worth $2 to speed through.
