Clear and Present Danger

| | Comments (2)
So last week I *finally* finished Clear and Present Danger by Tom Clancy.  What a marathon effort that was! Took weeks and weeks and weeks.  It's a ridiculously long book.  There's some decent character development, but so many characters it was difficult for me to remember who was who.  It took ages and ages for anything to *happen* and even in the end there was a couple of little battles and that was about it.  

So yeah, a little disappointing.  

It's only the second Tom Clancy book I've read - the other being The Hunt for Red October - which I actually liked the movie better - the book got to where the end of the movie was then just went on and on for another couple of hundred pages :/

If any more Tom Clancy books cross my path I may read them, but won't be going out of my way.

I stopped reading Tom Clancy books after I read one that had 15 pages setting up a scene, then the scene took 3 pages. Duh?
