Advantagesanswers some questions

Disadvantagesrasies even more questions

Second he is nearly killed after saving the Prince and Princess ..." Read review

Quick review of Patriot Games - Tom Clancy

"This is one of my favorite books! Well, i love almost every piece that Tom Clancy wrote. And certainly, Tom Clancy has proven his diligence in writing this one. I recommend every spy novel lovers out there to try out this one. I' sure just like me, you will never set this book down without finishing it.

Disadvantagesnone

"...to be released. I read Patriot Games a year or so before the film came out on video. I could not put this book down. I laughed, I cried, I enjoyed Jack Ryan kicking some butt. The plot is ex-CIA agent Jack Ryan was trying to enjoy mixing business and pleasure over here in jolly old England - when he stops an assassination attempt on members of the Royal Family. The terrorist then follow Jack back home to the USA and attempts to kill off his family. ..." Read review
