Book Description
Jack Ryan defends the USA against economic sabotage from the East that escalates into war in Tom Clancy's record-breaking Sunday Times No 1 bestseller -- now reissued in a new cover. It begins with the murder of an American woman in the back streets of Tokyo. It ends in war! Called out of retirement to serve as the new President's National Security Adviser, Jack Ryan quickly realizes that the problems of peace are fully as complex as those of war. Enemies have become friends, friends enemies, and even the form of conflict has changed. When one of those new enemies readies a strike not only at America's territory, but at the heart of her economy, it is Ryan who must somehow prepare an untested President to meet the challenge. For there is a debt of honour to be paid -- and the price will be terrifyingly high!

    Questo è il primo libro di Clancy che ho scelto di leggere in lingua originale. In questo modo la lettura risulta certamente più impegnativa, ma sinceramente penso ne valga la pena. Leggendo la traduzione risulta a volte difficile comprendere il vero motivo per cui l'autore compie determinate scelte narrative; a volte alcuni dialoghi sembrano addirittura estranei al contesto. Leggendo il libro in lingua originale invece si riesce a cogliere esattamente ciò che l'autore intendeva esprimere.

    I have been enjoying Tom Clancy's earlier novels a lot, but somehow I stopped reading his novels after Without Remorse. I think Without Remorse really put me off with its lengthy and grim narrative. For 15 years I never picked up any of his new books but re-read the old goodies several times (e.g., Red Storm Rising -- at least 5 times). Here I got this book by chance, and boy I regretted that I haven't read it 15 years ago. Well, I finished this book promptly and now are reading the next one in sequel -- Executive Orders. No time to review. I have a lot to catch up!
