Tell me what to read.

I just finished “The Hunt for Red October” by Tom Clancy and I loved it (I have yet to see the movie but I can definitely picture Connery as Marko Ramius). Since I can loot my late grandfather’s study at any time and get just about anything (He had even more books than some libraries I know), I was wondering which other books by Clancy should I read next.

Red Storm Rising, maybe. Then Patriot Games, I think. You can just eyegrep the inside cover of a later one to figure out what to read next.

Stay away from NetForce, though. And I don’t trust the OpCenter series either. Clancy falls on his face if he gets too far ahead of current events.

The Bible

Rainbow Six is a fan favorite, but I could never trudge through all that.

Long? Dense? Boring?

D) All of the above?

Battle Royale by Koushun Takami

It’s a good book, bit differen’t from the movie.

Is that by Tom Clancy?

Patriot Games then Clear and Present Danger.

Cardinal of the Kremlin
Patriot Games (best Clancy movie too, IMO. Ford was perfect)
Sum of All Fears
Clear and Present Danger

There’s some order to all these, but I don’t know it.
