TotT not the best Clancy book ever[edit]

Sorry, I just couldn't sit there & allow TotT to be characterized as the best Clancy book evah! Look at the amazon ratings - 2/5 stars in a rating system that don't allow zero: Not many people think this book is a gem. Amongst the Clancy faithful (a.b.t-c, for example) the prevailing veiw seems to be that the best that can be said about the book is that hopefully, it opens doors for better followups. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) September 13, 2005 00:08 (UCT).

Come to think of it (replying to myself here) This book is so bad, it needs a proper "Criticisms" section. Quite a lengthy one, at that... —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) September 13, 2005 04:08 (UCT).

Criticism section leads to too much POV[edit]

I don't agree with a criticism section because more often than not it becomes to much of a POV from the writer. But if it has sites to back up what is being said than i guess i can't really do anything about it.--Hasty5o 05:23, 12 February 2006 (UTC)

The 'Conflicts with previous Clancy works' section is written in a highly inappropriate style - "our discussion"? Mind you, none of the Tom Clancy articles are exactly well written. Perhaps not entirely inappropriately.

Anyway, this analysis belongs somewhere more general - Ryaniverse, Jack Ryan (Tom Clancy), Tom Clancy?

Have just read the book...[edit]

Have just read the book. Fortunately I only paid $5.95 for hardcover at Goodwill. Clancy maintains his style at the very least. Of interest is the fact that most of the 'surveillance' techniques he describes are no doubt described in greater detail than the recent NY Times revelations that have garnered such criticism, and I believe Clancy probably has it down to the nat's ass on detail. So where is the outrage and uproar by the Conservative press on this one?

Truth is, that Clancy didn't damage homeland security any more than the NY Times and LA Times have.

  • Eh, there has to be something to get worked up over first and, I kind of hate to say it, but Clancy hasn't been in top form a long time; especially with this kind of story he wants to be taken seriously (being in the Ryanverse and all), but it's really different from any number of pulp action movies. Tom Clancy doesn't have the backdrop of the Cold War to write about anymore, and he's already done the predictable wars in the Middle East and between Russia/China; not much else he could as sweeping as those.

Brain of the Tiger? Where is it?[edit]

The end of Teeth of the Tiger ends with "Now they met the teeth. Next they would meet the brain." So I was expecting the sequel to be Brain of the Tiger. But the sequel is starting to be overdue. If the sequel is another 1000 page monster like previous entries in the series, I can understand the delay. But Teeth is only 1/3 of that length. Will (Talk - contribs) 23:08, 11 December 2006 (UTC)

Ryaniverse Divergeance[edit]

The whole thing about Ryaniverse divergeance from "reality" should be in the Ryaniverse article, not here! -- Kschang77 08:58, 17 December 2006 (UTC)

somewhat agree. At least put how this book diverges and a direct link to that section of the ryanverse article. I mean wiki's not paper. having it in both isn't hurting anyone. And its info to the world of the book.--Xiahou 23:28, 5 January 2007 (UTC)
