    It has been rud 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 It has been rud 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 with the powers that be and considered it to be an extreme threat to national security Clancy s lawyers pointed out that all of this information is available to the general public in any college library if someone is willing to take the time to look it up The court agreed and allowed the book to be published without any of the information being removed.The story starts during the 1967 Arab Israeli war By then Israel had already secretly developed atomic weapons Israel had a jet fighter loaded with an atomic bomb ready to scramble, the atomic bomb was not armed, but the plane was scrambled to go engage a group of tanks threatening the air base with the atomic bomb still attached During the battle the plane was straffed with 50 caliber machine gun fire and the bomb mounts were hit, the bomb broke loose and came down in a farmers field The jet crashed before it could limp home and the pilot was killed Searches failed to locate the bomb Flashforward, to the fall of the Berlin Wall Communist scientists desperate for money sell detronium or heavy water to the palistinian terrorists allowing them to convert the atomic bomb to a hydrogen bomb They decide that the Super Bowl will be the perfect target since it is televised and the Vice Presedent of the United States has box tickets.You will be hanging by the edge of you seat waiting to see if they succeed

    This was a decent story but was very long in my opinion I struggled to follow with all the subplots and backstory information.

    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 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 title would have been The Sum of All Ridiculousness.A convoluted plot with numerous sub plots that I just knew would come to a logical conclusion, instead came together in a contrived conclusion and some didn t come together at all There were sub plots about Ryan, his wife, Caroline, who was called Cathy don t ask me why Dr Ryan as was Jack Ryan Dr Ryan Another sub plot included President Fowler Bob Robert Elizabeth Liz Dr Elliot There were high low level Arabs Russians, German military civilians, the U.S Navy submarine destroyer officers enlisted , Air Force pilots Pentagon personnel, Israelis White House staff Oh, the Japanese They had a small part too and the Mexicans Have I missed anyone Chinese No, I don t think there were any mentioned.The sub plots were confusing, but Clancy didn t think the story was complicated enough, so he spiced it up by referring to people, at various times, by their first names, last names, full names, nicknames, titles multiple, sometimes just their informal roles , middle names, terms of endearment the reader was supposed to remember who he was talking about Russian names Forgetaboutit I soon lost interest in keeping up with them not just the Russians.Several hundred pages, I m sure, were spent describing the inner workings ingredients of bombs, submarines, aircraft, facilities for making them other dull stuff Who cares Dozens of pages were spent describing football plays players, which were background for the bombing, but really, dozens An entire chapter was devoted to describing the inner workings of a bomb which fizzled.Goodley Benjamin Ben Dr Goodley was sent in by Dr Elliot Liz Elizabeth to spy on sabotage Jack Ryan Dr Ryan, then suddenly became his ally What was with that Why did she finish this book at all you ask At first I thought it would get better not , then I felt I d invested so much time in it I might as well finish, then I wanted to finish it so I d have good cause for writing this scathing review.Tom Clancy is a pompous know it all language cleaned up I won t be reading another of his books.The almost five months spent reading this garbage were not entirely wasted I read almost 30 other books concurrently with this one, most of which I enjoyed I m not exaggerating I keep track of them on Goodreads

    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.


  9. Lisa Lisa says:

    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 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 adventures, or to why there is so much animosity between him and NSA advisor Elizabeth Elliot And that may prevent you from caring as much as you should about Ryan s imminent burn out as Deputy Director of Central Intelligence So see the movie on this one reworked as a prequel before events in The Hunt for Red October For something a little faster moving, try Patriot Games for something where the endless set up pays off much better or for which I ampatient, since I aminterested in epidemiology than in nuclear weaponry , try Executive Orders But you still may need to search for a Cliff Notes version of Ryan s earlier adventures to catch all the allusions and understand the nuances

    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 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 and not bothering with any fears but one didn t just make it inaptly named it got to be a totally different story
