It was Friday afternoon about two-thirty in Alexandria, Virginia, and in a sunny kitchen of a rambling house near the outskirts of the city, Madeline Green sat looking out of her virtual workspace, across the kitchen table, to where her mother was building a castle. Read the first page

These Net Force books are all short, easy to read, and interesting. Like the others that I have read, this one fulfills the promise of the creaters. In this book, Maj's life becomes even more interesting than usual when a younger visitor comes to her home - as an escapee. Her interaction and work with other Net Force Explorers adds character and excitement to the book. Creative design on the Net and action-adventure combine to make this one more in a good series to get and read, for both parents and children. If this is how and what the 'Net' will become, I am all for it. I especially like the values transmitted by the authors in these books. I only wish that I had, again, a younger child to share these with now. I plan on keeping them for my future grandchildren. Maybe by then these books will read like 'history'. Keep it up, authors.

Child-like for a Clancy book. Oct. 25 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Although, very few of the ghost written or jointly written "Clancy series", feel like the real thing to me, I have continued to read them in some unlikely attempt to recapture the original. Not likely. The perfect combo of what at the time seemed to be almost too much detail, as you jumped from venue to venue, from one field of operation to the next, was exactly what made Clancy feel like a second skin. The volume of details on the specific operational scene, the psychological details and back story that make up the psyche of each character, while heavily laden with specifics in-country, gave you the feeling of being there. Or-at least the knowledge and lay of the land; details of the weaponry & intricate make-up of the local peoples, infrastructure, and rebellious fighters, that could be for good against a bad old system, or for bad with a new self-involved dictator that was up to no good. The secret being you became so wrapped up in all of these details, and changing of venues that the plot sometimes escapes you. (And welcomely) surprises you.

This Clancy copy like most of the rest does not hit the mark but may be better suited for teens, actually. The two main characters are in their teens, and the bulk of the storyline written in an almost juvenile manner while in a VW. Maybe you should turn your younger teens on to this one. No graphic violence or sexual contact.

This reader is not too computer savy but Clancy kept this at an easy to follow level. Great fiction that is very believable.
Great Virtual Action-Packed Book June 6 2013
By Christina Dimon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I chose this book because of my curiosity, and also that Tom Clancy. Also, because it involved the internet.

What I liked was the cutting edge use of 21st century technology, the suspense, and political intrigue with oppressive regimes. It opened my eyes further to how much people had to watch what they said, even on paper. Triumph over terror!
