Aardig verhaal, maar wel een waarbij duidelijk de Amerikaanse arrogantie en superioriteit blijkt.

De plot belooft veel, maar helaas, het heeft nooit de spanning van Clancy's betere werken gehaald. Erger nog, het boek lijkt gemaakt te zijn van de geweigerde onderdelen uit 'kardinaal van het Kremlin;. Want het is een prequel, het einde is al een uitgemaakte zaak. De karakters vormen het middelpunt van het verhaal, en daardoor ontwikkelt plot nooit verrassende wendingen waarmee dit boek een topper zou kunnen worden. Clancy's stijl is nog steeds fris en door zijn beschrijving van de handelswijze kan het zo naslag materiaal in Langley worden. Toch heeft het plot gebrek aan echte spanning en actie. ( )

Like a lot of Clancy's books, they are rather long winded. I get the idea that he was definitely paid by the word. This book could have easily been a couple hundred pages shorter and would have been a real page turner at that. This one has Jack Ryan getting dumped onto the Brits to help them get information from a defector out of Mother Russia. The defector says that the Pope is in danger of getting at least one bullet hole put into his body. Ryan finds himself on the team to try and stop this from happening. As is known in real life, a Turkish thug was employed to take out the Pope and almost succeeded. This is a novelization of that and using a real person in the old Soviet Union who, according to what Clancy wrote, had ordered the hit on the Pope. All in all, a good addition in the Ryan universe. Now onto something, perhaps, less wordy. ( )

What a difference a lot of hindsight makes.It was my first and probaly last Tom Clancy.Every single american in this book is super competent,super sagacious,can plot out the future events of soviet history in the most precise detail,and all in all are almost superhuman.I was continually annoyed at the patronising tone about the rest of the world,none of whom were shown as more than semi-competent.While the americans were supermen,the brits were bumbling around,and the book gave a bashing to almost everything british except the bacon!.The National Health service was derided,the only doctors were two drunkards who left their patient halfway through the operation to go for a drink.The Hungarians,oh well,the american spies didnt wash that morning,so that they could pass as Hungarian workmen.A whole nation tossed aside as dirty and unwashed.
The Italians? Ryan's smug wife Cathy seriously states that its possible that Italy may have a few competent doctors,but wishes the Pope had the services of brilliant american surgeons!
But Clancy's opinions of the Russians! Whereas every single american is saintly,every Russian is venal,cold,selfserving,and totally focused on getting western goods.Mary Pat,american spy is totally scathing of evrything russian-even the furs are not as good as US furs,even before they are sloppily sewn.Really.I never knew even US animals were superior to russian ones.
Even american spies are angelic,they gave up killing spy opponente years ago,and even at the end of the book,they hand over the spy,of COURSE captured by Ryan,to the british,who then murder him after 2 hours questioning.
No wonder the american armed services adore Clancy,he shows americans as the saviours of the world,so he is their poster boy.As I said at the beginning,everything is wonderful with 20 years hindsight.But it made me smile as Ryan seriously pontificates about the russians failure in Afghanistan,This book was written probably in 2001,and 10 years of american failure to cope with Afghanistan was still in the future.Not so wise and clearsighted with no hindsight,was he.
No,this book seiously infuriated me with it patronising attitude,smug belief that America is the greatest in every sphere of life.Couldnt some of the american characters have had at least a few human flaws,or made a couple of mistakes?I am more used to Len Deighton and John Le Carre where everyone is flawed,there is rarely a victorious outcome,and the whole murky world is one of rather sad depression.This whole book seemed a sort of updating of Ian Flemings ludicrous hyping of the british secret service,which other brit writers spent decades knocking down.Clancy just seems to have modernised the whole thing,but from an american perspective ( )

A long winded attempt at a spy-thriller that manages to combine predictability with improbability! Its only contribution to the genre is to confirm Le Carre status at The Master.

Long before he was President or head of the CIA, before he fought terrorist attacks on the Super Bowl or the White House, even before a submarine named Red October made its perilous way across the Atlantic, Jack Ryan was an historian, teacher, and recent ex-Marine temporarily living in England while researching a book. A series of deadly encounters with an IRA splinter group had brought him to the attention of the CIA’s Deputy Director, Vice Admiral... ( )
