Debt of Honor Reviews

    Apr 16, 2009

    5.5 to 6.0 stars. This is my favorite Tom Clancy book. I don't want to give away any spoilers but the scope of the plot and the multi-pronged attack on the U.S. was amazing. Add to that the superb way in which the good guys fight back and an "over the top" ending and you have a memorab...

    The last of the Clancy/Ryan books I liked and I'm very happy I put that 4-star rating for it there way before writing this review. Because trying to remember it now, it kind of blends, not surprisingly, with Executive Orders - the first one I really disliked. My gut tells me 4 stars is...

    A pretty solid book. It's got a lot of good stuff, and it's reminiscent of the earlier works. It's probably the most colorful of all Tom's works, including a Pearl Harbor like event, B-2 bombers, nukes, why not to draw your pistol from an armpit holster, lasers, Chavez and Clark are...

    Perhaps 1 star is a bit harsh; maybe I should give it 1.5 instead. Clancy remains a skilled writer, in terms of dialogue, character development, and the build-up of suspense. If you've gotten this far in the Jack Ryan series, Debt of Honor will be an easy and enjoyable read for you. ...

    OK, maybe two stars looks harsh, but the book was OK and that is the best I can say about it. The spy plot thread, with underground operatives in Japan was actually pretty good. I liked the air war thread. But the long, long, LOOONG, parts about financial double dealing left me cold. ...

    The very first Tom Clancy book I ever bought, and by mistake as well. (Through a book club in case you were wondering. I was too lazy to send it back) After reading this, I had to go back and get all of his previous books. Having reread this recently, I marvelled at the complexity of e...

    I enjoyed this book - but for how long it is, not a whole lot really happened. When I was done, I though "It really took 990 pages to tell that story"? There was a lot of really intricate military information that was not as interesting to me, but showed that Clancy put a lot of though...

    A more enjoyable outing than The Sum of All Fears or the lamentable Without Remorse; Clancy managed here to get it up one last time following the CCCP's dissolution, and I've got to admit that one of my first thoughts on 2001-09-11 was "holy gawd some Montana nutcase has brought his De...

    Another solid Clancy novel! A lot of parts in the book seemed to drag because Clancy would get into long and lengthy descriptions but the plot really held my interest. What I didn't see coming was the ending, I won't say what happens for those of you who like Tom Clancy and haven't rea...

    If not for the last 200 pages, this might've earned a one-star rating. It's just incredibly boring. The first 400 pages could've been 200 pages, and everything after that could've been heavily trimmed. This is a general complaint I've had with Clancy, but he usually overcame it with go...

    One of the most intense Tom Clancy novels I've read so far. An extremely intricate collection of plots are expertly tied together, and brought not to a satisfying conclusion, but rather a stunning end that picks up with the next book, 'Executive Orders'. My only criticism comes from pe...

    Like any Tom Clancy novel, it started off a bit slow, but I have to say it ended with a huge cliff hanger. I'm definitely going to want to get the next novel soon! ...

    The last decade of Tom Clancy's life must have been very frightening for him. He found himself in a world rapidly demobilizing from the Cold War, where spending enormous sums of money to secure nebulous degrees of security was going out of vogue (he needn't have worried--the War on Ter...

    This is by far my favorite of Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan novels, in which Jack and the NSA 'discover' that Japan's business interests have coerced their government into launching a modern-day sneak attack on the US and get away with it almost without the US even being aware of it. Together...

    This was by far my most favorite of the Jack Ryan series! Uniquely, as I was enjoying the whole thing, I thought to myself that one would be hard pressed to enjoy it as much without the entire backstory of all the collective other Jack Ryan books, up to that point. So, in light ...

    5.5 to 6.0 stars. This is my favorite Tom Clancy book. I don't want to give away any spoilers but the scope of the plot and the multi-pronged attack on the U.S. was amazing. Add to that the superb way in which the good guys fight back and an "over the top" ending and you have a memorab...

    The last of the Clancy/Ryan books I liked and I'm very happy I put that 4-star rating for it there way before writing this review. Because trying to remember it now, it kind of blends, not surprisingly, with Executive Orders - the first one I really disliked. My gut tells me 4 stars is...

    A pretty solid book. It's got a lot of good stuff, and it's reminiscent of the earlier works. It's probably the most colorful of all Tom's works, including a Pearl Harbor like event, B-2 bombers, nukes, why not to draw your pistol from an armpit holster, lasers, Chavez and Clark are...

    Perhaps 1 star is a bit harsh; maybe I should give it 1.5 instead. Clancy remains a skilled writer, in terms of dialogue, character development, and the build-up of suspense. If you've gotten this far in the Jack Ryan series, Debt of Honor will be an easy and enjoyable read for you. ...

    OK, maybe two stars looks harsh, but the book was OK and that is the best I can say about it. The spy plot thread, with underground operatives in Japan was actually pretty good. I liked the air war thread. But the long, long, LOOONG, parts about financial double dealing left me cold. ...

    The very first Tom Clancy book I ever bought, and by mistake as well. (Through a book club in case you were wondering. I was too lazy to send it back) After reading this, I had to go back and get all of his previous books. Having reread this recently, I marvelled at the complexity of e...

    A more enjoyable outing than The Sum of All Fears or the lamentable Without Remorse; Clancy managed here to get it up one last time following the CCCP's dissolution, and I've got to admit that one of my first thoughts on 2001-09-11 was "holy gawd some Montana nutcase has brought his De...

    Debt of Honor, among other things, is the story of Jack Ryan and his role in a conflict between the Japan and the United States that eventually leads to war between the two countries. Personally, I found this book to be very boring because of the fact that it was overly long. Throughou...

    Book on CD, but I also own it in paperback. My family really found this one too hard to follow while driving. Kids put on head phones, wife was bored. I loved it. We finished it and I finally found out how Jack Ryan Sr became president. ...

    Another solid Clancy novel! A lot of parts in the book seemed to drag because Clancy would get into long and lengthy descriptions but the plot really held my interest. What I didn't see coming was the ending, I won't say what happens for those of you who like Tom Clancy and haven't rea...

    If not for the last 200 pages, this might've earned a one-star rating. It's just incredibly boring. The first 400 pages could've been 200 pages, and everything after that could've been heavily trimmed. This is a general complaint I've had with Clancy, but he usually overcame it with go...

    One of the most intense Tom Clancy novels I've read so far. An extremely intricate collection of plots are expertly tied together, and brought not to a satisfying conclusion, but rather a stunning end that picks up with the next book, 'Executive Orders'. My only criticism comes from pe...

    Like any Tom Clancy novel, it started off a bit slow, but I have to say it ended with a huge cliff hanger. I'm definitely going to want to get the next novel soon! ...

    Absolutely great! If you love Clancy, you'll love this one too. ...

    The last decade of Tom Clancy's life must have been very frightening for him. He found himself in a world rapidly demobilizing from the Cold War, where spending enormous sums of money to secure nebulous degrees of security was going out of vogue (he needn't have worried--the War on Ter...

    I don't usually read espionage novels but once I started reading Tom Clancy's "Debt of Honor" I felt ready for the challenge. Written in a lengthy format where a wide range of characters in the United States, Japan, Saipan and Russia struggled to exist in a world changed by war, techn...

    This is by far my favorite of Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan novels, in which Jack and the NSA 'discover' that Japan's business interests have coerced their government into launching a modern-day sneak attack on the US and get away with it almost without the US even being aware of it. Together...

    Debt of Honor is basically about what happens when the Americans mess with the Japanese. Our main character, Jack Ryan, has been called in as the National Security Advisor and must deal with all the problems that take place over the course of the book. Ryan was a pretty boring char...

    The first of a mini trilogy within the Ryanverse, this book sets of a chain of events that culminate in the end of "The Bear and the Dragon". Poorer than its sequel "Executive Orders" but better than "The Bear and the Dragon", it details a war between Japan and the United States, trigg...

    This was by far my most favorite of the Jack Ryan series! Uniquely, as I was enjoying the whole thing, I thought to myself that one would be hard pressed to enjoy it as much without the entire backstory of all the collective other Jack Ryan books, up to that point. So, in light ...

    With Clancy, I usually have to skip through the boring parts, but the interesting stuff more than makes up for it. At the end of this novel, (view spoiler)[Jack Ryan (hide spoiler)] becomes President of the United States. ...

    p406: a few people, none closer than half a block away, would remember the vehicle, a small white delivery truck that had been big enough to contain half a ton of amfo, an explosive mixture composed of nitrogen-based fertilizer and diesel fuel. ...

    Too many characters, too much tech, too convoluted, too contrived. This isn't his best book. A failed epic. ...

    5.5 to 6.0 stars. This is my favorite Tom Clancy book. I don't want to give away any spoilers but the scope of the plot and the multi-pronged attack on the U.S. was amazing. Add to that the superb way in which the good guys fight back and an "over the top" ending and you have a memorab...

    The last of the Clancy/Ryan books I liked and I'm very happy I put that 4-star rating for it there way before writing this review. Because trying to remember it now, it kind of blends, not surprisingly, with Executive Orders - the first one I really disliked. My gut tells me 4 stars is...

    A pretty solid book. It's got a lot of good stuff, and it's reminiscent of the earlier works. It's probably the most colorful of all Tom's works, including a Pearl Harbor like event, B-2 bombers, nukes, why not to draw your pistol from an armpit holster, lasers, Chavez and Clark are...

    Perhaps 1 star is a bit harsh; maybe I should give it 1.5 instead. Clancy remains a skilled writer, in terms of dialogue, character development, and the build-up of suspense. If you've gotten this far in the Jack Ryan series, Debt of Honor will be an easy and enjoyable read for you. ...

    OK, maybe two stars looks harsh, but the book was OK and that is the best I can say about it. The spy plot thread, with underground operatives in Japan was actually pretty good. I liked the air war thread. But the long, long, LOOONG, parts about financial double dealing left me cold. ...

    A pretty solid book. It's got a lot of good stuff, and it's reminiscent of the earlier works. It's probably the most colorful of all Tom's works, including a Pearl Harbor like event, B-2 bombers, nukes, why not to draw your pistol from an armpit holster, lasers, Chavez and Clark are...

    Perhaps 1 star is a bit harsh; maybe I should give it 1.5 instead. Clancy remains a skilled writer, in terms of dialogue, character development, and the build-up of suspense. If you've gotten this far in the Jack Ryan series, Debt of Honor will be an easy and enjoyable read for you. ...

    OK, maybe two stars looks harsh, but the book was OK and that is the best I can say about it. The spy plot thread, with underground operatives in Japan was actually pretty good. I liked the air war thread. But the long, long, LOOONG, parts about financial double dealing left me cold. ...

    The very first Tom Clancy book I ever bought, and by mistake as well. (Through a book club in case you were wondering. I was too lazy to send it back) After reading this, I had to go back and get all of his previous books. Having reread this recently, I marvelled at the complexity of e...

    I enjoyed this book - but for how long it is, not a whole lot really happened. When I was done, I though "It really took 990 pages to tell that story"? There was a lot of really intricate military information that was not as interesting to me, but showed that Clancy put a lot of though...

    A more enjoyable outing than The Sum of All Fears or the lamentable Without Remorse; Clancy managed here to get it up one last time following the CCCP's dissolution, and I've got to admit that one of my first thoughts on 2001-09-11 was "holy gawd some Montana nutcase has brought his De...

    Book on CD, but I also own it in paperback. My family really found this one too hard to follow while driving. Kids put on head phones, wife was bored. I loved it. We finished it and I finally found out how Jack Ryan Sr became president. ...

    Another solid Clancy novel! A lot of parts in the book seemed to drag because Clancy would get into long and lengthy descriptions but the plot really held my interest. What I didn't see coming was the ending, I won't say what happens for those of you who like Tom Clancy and haven't rea...

    One of the most intense Tom Clancy novels I've read so far. An extremely intricate collection of plots are expertly tied together, and brought not to a satisfying conclusion, but rather a stunning end that picks up with the next book, 'Executive Orders'. My only criticism comes from pe...

    A mazing. Gikk hardt utover nattes°vnen ...

    Like any Tom Clancy novel, it started off a bit slow, but I have to say it ended with a huge cliff hanger. I'm definitely going to want to get the next novel soon! ...

    Absolutely great! If you love Clancy, you'll love this one too. ...

    The last decade of Tom Clancy's life must have been very frightening for him. He found himself in a world rapidly demobilizing from the Cold War, where spending enormous sums of money to secure nebulous degrees of security was going out of vogue (he needn't have worried--the War on Ter...

    I don't usually read espionage novels but once I started reading Tom Clancy's "Debt of Honor" I felt ready for the challenge. Written in a lengthy format where a wide range of characters in the United States, Japan, Saipan and Russia struggled to exist in a world changed by war, techn...

    This is by far my favorite of Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan novels, in which Jack and the NSA 'discover' that Japan's business interests have coerced their government into launching a modern-day sneak attack on the US and get away with it almost without the US even being aware of it. Together...

    Debt of Honor is basically about what happens when the Americans mess with the Japanese. Our main character, Jack Ryan, has been called in as the National Security Advisor and must deal with all the problems that take place over the course of the book. Ryan was a pretty boring char...

    The first of a mini trilogy within the Ryanverse, this book sets of a chain of events that culminate in the end of "The Bear and the Dragon". Poorer than its sequel "Executive Orders" but better than "The Bear and the Dragon", it details a war between Japan and the United States, trigg...

    This was by far my most favorite of the Jack Ryan series! Uniquely, as I was enjoying the whole thing, I thought to myself that one would be hard pressed to enjoy it as much without the entire backstory of all the collective other Jack Ryan books, up to that point. So, in light ...

    With Clancy, I usually have to skip through the boring parts, but the interesting stuff more than makes up for it. At the end of this novel, (view spoiler)[Jack Ryan (hide spoiler)] becomes President of the United States. ...

    p406: a few people, none closer than half a block away, would remember the vehicle, a small white delivery truck that had been big enough to contain half a ton of amfo, an explosive mixture composed of nitrogen-based fertilizer and diesel fuel. ...

    Too many characters, too much tech, too convoluted, too contrived. This isn't his best book. A failed epic. ...

    Voor de tweede keer gelezen 2017 Even geen zin om een review te schrijven. Sorry ...

    Mi calificativo es trepidante ... Aunque los acontecimientos lo hayan recordado ... Pero he disfrutado de su lectura ...

    Highly recommended...my usual for this author! Glad to say this segment of the Jack Ryan series holds up. Although it has a cliffhanger ending, it does not disappoint. ...
