    Oh thank God. Thank God it's over. I picked this up en route to Goa a few weeks ago, and I seem to have been reading it forever. As always, Clancy's world is incredibly detailed and credible, in many ways all the more impressive for its sometime parallels to the world we live in today. As ever, the central plot is great. As ever, there's just too bloody much detail for anybody outside of the military to maintain much interest. The characters are for the most part the same seven or eight core peo [...]

    It has been rumored that permission to publish this book had to go all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court and ever since then there is a standing court order that the CIA, FBI, and NSA receive advance copies of every Tom Clancy book a month before it goes to the publisher. Why? Well this book tells you step by step, in layman's language, in exacting detail how you build a hydrogen bomb. About the only thing that is left out is the exact amount of plutonium you would need. This did not sit well wi [...]

    Ben Affleck as Jack Ryan, bahahaha!Jack Ryan is the Mary Sueist of all the characters in the history of this world.

    Together with The Cardinal of the Kremlin, my favorite Clancy. Sure, the stories stars to be a bit repetitive by now, but if you know what you are in for and look upon this as it's own work, it's brutally effective! The Sum of all Fears, is just that - there are so many things converging that the sum is overwhelming. The suspense and intensity does this story, even if it is a long and not always fast moving one. Forget about the horrible movie adaption, the double mistake of casting Ben Affleck [...]

    3.0 to 3.5 stars. I am a big fan of Tom Clancy, especially of his characters Jack Ryan and John Clark, both of whom figure prominently in this Middle East thriller centering on Nuclear proliferation. As good as Clancy is and as compelling as the story can be, this one felt just TOO LONG to rate any higher. With some strategic editing, this one could have been amazing. As it is, it is still very good.

    I finally got interested at about 600 pages - no kidding - for about 75 pages. This was the worst book I've ever read (there've been some other bad ones, but I had the common sense not to finish them). If I could take stars AWAY from a book, I would. At about 700 pages, it got so tedious that I thought I wouldn't finish; why was I wasting my time? (I had this thought a number of times while plowing through it.) After that, I was saying, 'Oh, come on!' because it became so outrageous. A better ti [...]

    This is a Tom Clancy novel where the movie is better than the book (like The Hunt for Red October). The Sum of All Fears is so crammed full of everything Tom Clancy learned about building a two-stage nuclear weapon and about submarines and submarine warfare that it really detracts from the interesting plot, which could have been pulled together in half or one third of the space. And if you haven't read earlier Clancy books you won't get some of the references to hero Jack Ryan's earlier adventur [...]

    I think I now know how to make a nuclear bomb

    The Sum of All Fears isn’t Tom Clancy’s best written book in the series, but as the title suggests, it is certainly the most frightening – especially when it was written during the collapse of the Soviet Union and the thaw of the Cold War. It is a sobering look at what can happen when dysfunctional Washington leadership is confronted with an unthinkable attack and how things can spiral out of control. Considering it was written ten years before 9/11, it is startling how it foreshadowed the [...]

    now to make a bomb of my own. in peace, tomand oh, one thing i didn't notice when i first read this (this was way back in the '90s): black sunday was referenced three times, though in film form (and not the book) in all instances

    "L'ammiraglio Greer diceva che la prima legge delle operazioni del servizio segreto è che la probabilità che un'operazione fallisca sono proporzionali al quadrato delle persone che che conoscono i dettagli".Romanzo che, pur essendo stato scritto nel "lontano" 1991, affronta tematiche (purtroppo) sempre attuali: cosa accadrebbe se qualcuno (politico o terrorista che sia) si impadronisse di una delle tante testate nucleari sparse per il mondo?Libro stranissimo (e lo dico subito, il più "soporif [...]

    Tom Clancy's books are like having sex for the first time: It starts out exciting, gets a little awkward in the middle as you have no idea what's going on and are waiting for something to happen; it becomes intense toward the end but it ends too quickly and you feel unsatisfied.**SPOILERS BELOW**All major conflicts in the book are too well-resolved. Clancy expertly builds suspense when Cathy is convinced Jack is having an affair, only for it to end anticlimactically with Clark explaining it all [...]

    Like most of his work, Clancy's "The Sum of All Fears" starts pretty uneventful. The events have played out pretty much as you would have expected from the end of "Clear and Present Danger" and the new president and his cabinet have settled into their new roles and with Ryan's help are looking towards a more more peaceful future. As you can expect that doesn't go as planned.The biggest criticism I've seen/heard/read about "The Sum of All Fears" is how long it takes for any real action to takes p [...]

    I'll do the same review for all Clancy's novels because they're all pretty much the same. Very long, very detailed, and after a while, very repetitive. If you stop after just a few of his books you'd probably give them 4 or 5 stars, but beyond that they start to grate. Especially where Jack Ryan is involved. I mean, Clancy spends hundreds of pages getting his details just right, the settings perfect etc then he has Ryan dodging more bullets than James Bond! I finally threw my hands up and surren [...]

    Gelezen van 8-03-2013 tot 20-03-2013Weer een boek uit de 'Jack Ryan' serie geschreven door Tom Clancy. Op dit moment is er een vredespoging tussen de verschillende geloven, Amerika, Rusland en het Vaticaan. Maar zoals in alle boeken zijn er hier ook allerlei onverwachtse wendingen te verwachten.Voor de 2e keer gelezen van 12-2016 tot 08-01-2017

    Scott
    Clancy's gripping depiction of just how fragile the nature of leadership can be in the midst of crisis is shockingly frightening. When emotions run high and the ever-present voice of reason (who else but Jack Ryan) is ignored, Clancy masterfully paints his most intense piece yet.

    Loren
    long in some parts but loved interweaving story.

    John
    Re-read of this. RIP Tom Clancy. You are missed.

    I'd echo the top review: "Thank God it's over." This was a long slog--it took me two years of off-and-on reading to finish. Oh, the data dumps! I eventually learned to skip over the tedious technical descriptions of buttons and mechanisms that didn't alter outcomes in the story one iota. But it was still slow.And this book switched mid-page from one setting and cast of characters to another, with "scenes" often lasting only a single paragraph before switching back to some other group. Awkward/ch [...]

    My last Clancy, in which a terrorist nukes the Super Bowl. The 800 page book would've been half as large without the prerequisite exhaustive military hardware specifications for each weapon, vehicle, ship, and bullet introduced. Clancy even goes so far in the appendix to explain how he deliberately fudged the details of how a nuclear bomb works, so that terrorists won't glean anything from him. Oh puhleeze. As for Clancy in my future, I think I can sum it up with tl;dr.

    I first heard of Tom Clancy in 1990, when a coworker told me about this author who'd become the darling of military specialists (sonar guys on submarines, for example) because his books displayed an in-depth understanding of their work.So I read The Hunt for Red October, which was fairly satisfying, and Red Storm Rising, after which I was pretty much Clancy-ed out for a while.After all, these are fairly hefty books, and with all those pages I'd prefer to see more character development. In The Be [...]

    While this book was not terrible, I found it much worse than other Clancy works. Clancy has always been a bit "long-winded," but I never noticed it quite like in The Sum of All Fears. Clancy's penchant for throwing endless trips to Carol Zimmer's store (and that annoying way he writes her accent), endless football banter between the "SecDef" and others, and other tedious paragraphs (he must have Marvin Russell fantasize about revenge for his brother's death at least 5 times - in nearly the exact [...]

    The Sum of All FearsTom Clancy After the discovery of a damaged Israeli nuclear bomb which had gone missing in 1973, Arabs, who got their hands on this weapon of mass destruction, seek the help of a German scientist who helps them replicate the bomb in order for it to be used against the United States, after a treaty which is meant to settle the war against Israel and Arabians displeases them.As the engineering process of the weapon is complete, the Arabs, plan to use the weapon in a Super Bowl [...]

    This book is full of action, from start to finish. It is also an interesting look at how American politics might work. The big takeaway, I think, is that you don't have to be a powerful nation to build a hydrogen bomb, and it wouldn't be that difficult to get such a bomb across our borders.Although I don't foresee complete disarmament of the worlds nukes any time soon, the idea that these devices should not exist, even in the hands of world leaders, is compelling. How can even the President of t [...]

    I just re-read this book (about 15 or so years after reading it the first time), and I need to warn those who are thinking of reading it or who have just begun: stick with it through all the different story lines! Make notes if you have to, but Clancy doesn't tell you something that isn't going to come into play in the story later. Also, it may seem to go slowly for the first half of the book (which is a big book, admittedly), the second half of the book is nearly continual action and drama.Basi [...]

    This book was very exciting, just like the film, but more. It starts off with a protest gone wrong in Israeli. Palestinians begin to use peaceful protests but a protestor is killed and therefore, U.S. cannot support Israel. But U.S. manages to resolve the situation and create long lasting peace. However,there is a group of Muslim terrorists who are looking at this lasting peace as a failure in their campain for their anger is toward the U.S. They retaliate by detonating a bomb in a stadium locat [...]

    Dear Penthouse Letters:You'll never believe what happened one day when I was sitting in the library, flipping through the latest copy of "Jane's Guide to Military Technology"--let's just say that my passive sonar went active! Ping-ping-ping went my heart at the thought of sturdily-designed hardware like the Israeli Merkava tanke shaft of its 120mm MG253 smoothbore gun, capable of firing APDS as well as HEAT rounds looming over me, making me quiverI couldn't help but imagine the feel of its ceram [...]

    As usual Tom Clancy knocks this book out of the park with it detailed content and gripping story. It's a ride of turn off turn from domestic issues to foreign policy with Israel. It posts the Russians as innocent as a group of territory want to star world war three so Israel will no longer have u.s support. This will allow the Palestine's in there eyes to hopefully over take Israel and stop a peace agreement from being made. This also takes on the challenge of if there was a nuclear attack on th [...]

    When I first started to read this book it grabbed my attention straight away. However there is a lot of detail some people have said that regarding this book there is too much detail, but I think with out it, it would be Tom Clancy. He gets slated for this quite often, but as you get towards the back end of this book all the detail begins to fall into place.It has taken me so long to read this book, I feel I have just completed a marathon, (in a good way though), and I have fully enjoy reading i [...]

    This probably has to be the biggest book by Tom Clancy I've read since Rainbow Six. While getting through the first couple of chapters, it was a little hard to follow, but as I read more, it started to make sense. The book was a lot better than the movie starring Ben Affleck, who played Jack Ryan, the movie was decent but the book was better, and also very different from the movie.There were parts in the book that my heart started racing because of the suspense, I literally couldn't put it down.
