The Book Net Force The Ultimate Escape, by Tom Clancy, is about a group of friends that are in a virtual aviation program called the net force. One of the friends, named Julio moved to Courteguay because his father was running for president.
During one of the aviation programs Julio appears desperately in need of help. Everyone in the program believes the appearance of Julio is nothing but a rift, but when they enter another program and see Julio in worse condition they take action. The team gets the police involved and the police contact the special forces. When the special forces officers find out that the Cortezes are in fact being held hostage, they get a team of Navy Seals on alert right away.
Julio shows up in another flight program and tells the team to tell the forces to not send anyone to get him or else he will die.
If you want to find out what happens to Julio and the Cortezes read Tom Clancy Net Force The Ultimate Escape.

I felt that the book was ok, but it lacked a cohesive story line, because often the story jumped from one subject to another which detracted from the excitement of the main story. I thought this produced uninteresting sub-plots that took away from the details of the main story. I also felt this book did not develop the characters as well as it could have, therefore I would not recommend this book.
The most interesting character is Matt Hunter. I am fascinated that he is able to handle being a net force explorer at such a young age. Matt is only thirteen years old and all of the other explorers are around seventeen and eighteen. He has to know about hundreds of planes and jets and be able to fly several. Along with that, he has to do very well because of the high expectations of his parents. I hope this review will guide you well and help you in the future.

The Ultmate Escape is the best Tom Clancy book that I have read. It's about Julio, the son of a father who is running for president of Courteguay, a small island nation that does not accept high technology. Julio is captured and sent to a virtual prison with the rest of his family and the U.S.A. has to rescue them before the elections. Julio virtually escapes and tells some Net Force Explorer friends he meets in a flight simulator that he is in a prison. His Net Force friends think Julio is a Rift, a bug that connects the mind and the programming so you can imagine anything. The Net Force makes a plan to get them out but a million things can go wrong. It is very exciting and full of interesting technology. I would recomend reading the other Net Force books first.

Although written for young adults, "The Ultimate Escape" packs more invention and imagination than the "adult" Net Force novels or even most cyberpunk sf books. The ghost author (whose contract doubtless forbids any disclosure of his name) does some fresh things with virtual reality, including complex air combat games and (Something I'm SURE I've never seen before) a convincing rationale for a "virtual" prison and the means of "virtually" escaping from it ­ all in the context of an exciting, fast-moving story. Let's hope other Net Force authors can do as well!

This book is about a group of kids that are in an organization called the Net Force Explorers. Julio Cortez, the Net Force flying ace, moved with his family to Corteguay, a Socialist Nation that does not allow recent technology. When they arrive they are taken prisoner. The remaining Net Force Explorers have to go into a high tech flight simulator contest. When they are in the simulators, Julio appears asking for help. The Explorers go to their adult superiors with their story. Will they believe the kids, and will they be able to get to Julio in time. You'll have to read the book to find out.

This book was OK. I got it after reading Cybersspy, which is also a Net Force book. That book trapped me in and I couldn't get out. This one never hooked me in. I read it because I had it, not because I liked it. If you want a good thriller, get Cyberspy or I Know What You Did Last Summer by Lois Duncan. If you want this, go ahead and get it, but you might regret it in the long run. Believe me. And click yes on the "Was That Review Helpful To You?" because, believe me, this review will help you. Steer clear of this book. Do me a favor, don't buy this.

This Tom Clancy created book is an easy read and is entertaining.
This series of books is aimed at the younger reader and takes you into the lives of a group of kids that are part of the "Net Force Explorers". The Explorers are a program created by Net Force, the agency charged with fighting crime on the internet.
Follow the kids on their latest adventure to help their friend Julio and his family.
This is an action packed story that kept me hooked until I was finished. Buy this book today, you won't be disappointed.

Ok, I've given Clancy a chance with his net force project, but it is obviously not a good example of his work, nor good writing. Although the plots investigate corruption and high tech crimes, I am still unsure of the target audience (possibly 12 year old boys) based upon the level of writing. If you are a die hard fan, skip this one. Otherwise it will damage your impression of all other Clancy books. Tom clancy, if you read this, I'd like my money back for all those net force books. Please spare us!
