Who reads/ has read his books? I started my first one, rainbow six, and so far it is pretty good, but long (~750 pages). I plan on reading others by him. Which arte your favorites?

Man, rainbow six was awesome. I have also read Teeth of the Tiger and Op-Center: State of Siege. They were both great and reccomended to teens and adults, although buying these books for your children is not reccomended.

I've read both Splinter Cell books...
But they're based on something Tom Clancy made, so I guess those don't count...

I've read those. I found the writing a little on the immature side. I've read Patriot Games, which is supposed to be one of the accessible Clancy books. I enjoyed it.

Rainbow Six has pretty much the sweetest beginning of all time. Why do you say he's a dick?

If you like Clancy or even stuff like Clancy, I'd sugguest Vince Flynn. He's like Clancy with out the extreme detail, and his main character, Mitch Rap, is pure bad ass.

Yeah, not as good as ol' Clancy himself, but entertainable nonetheless.

Can't wait for the movie. :D

I've read a few of his books, most of them start off like Rainbow Six, with the intense action.

I've read Rainbow Six, Teeth of the Tiger, Red Storm Rising and The Hunt for Red October.

Honestly, I thought Teeth of the Tiger was not one of his better books, it just seemed to end, it should have been longer. If you're going to read any of his books, you should really read Red October. It's very good.

I've also seen a couple of the movies, Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger. They're fairly good, but from what I've heard, the books are better.

Overall, I think he's a pretty good author.

Yes, he IS a dick...but he has a friggin' huge ass house. He lives in Waldorf Maryland last I heard. Or at least he has a house there...authors.

I am about 3 quarters through The Sum Of All Fears.
