Format: Mass Market Paperback
I had read all of Tom Clancy's books up to and including this one. But this one made me realize that now that the Cold War was over, so was my fascination with Clancy. This book is part "Tom Clancy's Public Policy Opinions" and part virus outbreak, with a homegrown terrorist plot that, without giving too much away, ends up a major disappointment. The virus plot is interesting, but the political plot wasn't to me. Perhaps this is because I don't share Clancy's views, and he portrayed them as such basic common sense, with the opposing side so hapless in offering a rebuttle, that I was a little offended. This also made me reflect on his previous books and realize even more that his characters all seem to be either really really good guys or really really bad guys with horrible character flaws. There's never any shades of gray to his characters, and even the "scandal" that dogs Ryan is due to him being too noble for his own good. Finally, I realized that with Jack Ryan as president, his days of dodging torpedos in a submarine were at an end, and thus, my favorite literary action character was being retired to a desk job.

Some books are so good you wish they would never end. Sadly, this is not one of them. At 1358 pages, the story drags on way to long; I had to fight myself to finish it. Plots unravel with excruciating and unnecessary detail. Finally, once the basic story has all but concluded, Mr.. Clancy adds just under 100 more pages to end the book, describing a battle between the two sides in the conflict, in much too much detail. I expected better. I would not recommend this book to anyone. .

"Executive Orders" picks up where Tom Clancy's previous novel "Debt of Honor" left off, as Jack Ryan--moments after being confirmed as Vice President--has just been sworn in as the new President of the United States following a tragic attack which has claimed the lives of President Roger Durling, most of the House & Senate members and all nine Supreme Court justices. Ryan immediately finds himself facing numerous challenges both at home and abroad. Domestic enemies, including the mainstream media and a disgraced former vice president question the legitimacy of Ryan's presidency. And in the Middle East, Iran invades Iraq after assassinating the Iraqi president, and now the two nations are unified as the UIR--United Islamic Republic. A biological attack on the United States by UIR-sponsored terrorists leads to another Gulf War as President Ryan sends U.S. troops into the region to deal with the attackers and their sponsors. "Executive Orders" is an outstanding read, the best of the presidential phase of the Jack Ryan series. As "Red Rabbit" revisited the beginning of Jack Ryan's CIA career, I would love to see Clancy revisit Ryan's presidency someday.

Tom Clancy is the master of multiple plots and subplots, as he expertly proves in this book.
The book begins with multiple - and at the time, unrelated - incidents happening in different places. An airplane driven by terrorists is piloted into the Capitol, killing the president, and Jack Ryan is asked to step in as president. A never-before-seen outbreak of the Ebola virus is found. And two men sit around talking politics.
But by the end of this gripping story, the plots and subplots have interwoven to make one plot that could only be thought up by a genius like Tom Clancy.
I won't say any more so I don't spoil the book, but anyone should read this.
Highly recommended!

If clancy had put this book on diet it could have been a five star book. The plot is there but it is covered up with needless chatter. You have to be good skimmer to find just the good stuff. This book is a thiller. It is not "War and Peace". Maybe Reader's Digest can turn it into a five star book.

Jack Ryan is doing his best. He took the opportunity to become Vice-President as his way out of government service - he'd serve, then retire to teaching. But then things went wrong, and the President, most of Congress, the Supreme Court, and the cabinet were killed in a terrorist action. Jack Ryan finds himself the head of the country - a job he never wanted.
Faced with being the most important President since George Washingon, he faces a press who thinks he is playing by political rules, an enemy in the middle East who is out to cripple the country, and an ex-Vice President who claims he never really resigned.
The middle-east thinks he's weak because he won't crush political enemies. The press pounces on him because he is being honest in a political world of dishonesty. His enemies think it's the right time to cripple the country - with an attack on the country, and an attack on his daughter.
The question Clancy asks is clear - could another man, faced with a devestation of the American political system, rise to the occassion and reject tyrnany and kingdom over democratic law. Plus, could he, if faced with terrible domestic and foreign policy issues, make the right choices to combat threats, both foreign and domestic.
Executive Orders put Jack Ryan, an honest man who served his country the best he could, in the position of being President. He wanted strict constituational law, but was willing to take a step beyond it (in preventing free travel in the wake of germ warfare crisis) - and very willing to be impeached and removed from office as a cost of his decision.
Jack Ryan is the hero of the everyday man - somebody who understands the world and the threats, and is willing to admit his weakness in domestic affairs. When facing rebuilding the government, he wants people who really know what the real world is like. In the end, he neither wants or craves power - he just wants to do what he thinks is the right thing.
