The Net Force haven't always been up to par with Clancy' other books and with the other ongoing serirs, Op-center. The book starts out and then disintegrates into a plodding story. Instead of focusing on the events, the author time Jay's new quwest to be a fatherhood .Alot of other things afre wrong including the reason why the General has inflilitrated the computers. Read it if your really are desperate for a Clancy fix. This book is the worse of the entire series(I have read all of them)

HASH(0xa1571024) out of 5 stars Spring-bored Feb. 4 2005
By Ira Stoller - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Are they kidding? This series has turned into Net Farce. In no particular order we get a Chinese computer geek who breaks into mega secure US government systems as well as some heavy duty commercial systems with consumate ease, a lecture on religion, or lack thereof, our hero, Jay Gridley, getting a new pair of VR glasses which may or may not let him catch the Chinese computer geek, several lectures on parenthood and is it more important than the job, Abe Kent stalking and killing the bad guy from the last book (or was it two books ago) after the bad guy first steals Abe's socks without taking his shoes off, a Chinese general who hatched the whole plot (plot? plot? don't ask!) and bites the big one (really!) while in Net Force custody, and oh what a lovely romp. Gawd, this series is going to the dogs. I think it's picked up a virus and needs to get its hard drive wiped and reformated.

HASH(0xa159866c) out of 5 stars Disappointment March 7 2005
By Steve Storm - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I am an ultimate Net Force fan. I loved the first seven books; it was my favorite series at the time. Book 8 let me down a little bit but this one was just awful. None of the characters are anywhere nearly as interesting as the initial characters. Thorn is much less interesting than Michaels. Fiorella adds a subplot while Lowe adds nothing. Fernandez is now a guest star. Kent is an extremely subpar substitution for John Howard. The new Gridley is a joke compared to the old hotshot. The antagonists have no depth. Michaels needs to get back in the picture and save the series from sticking itself farther down the tubes.

HASH(0xa1598c18) out of 5 stars Wow, this book is absolutely horrible Feb. 20 2005
By Matt P - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Admittedly, I haven't read anything else in the Net Force series, but this book was just disgraceful. I bought it on an impulse by at the gas station, and started reading it. What a horrible mistake.

There is no semblance of a plot or cohesion, and forget about character development. Mostly, all of the characters sit around 'grinning' at each other. This is one of the maybe 1 book in 200 that made me want to put it down and throw it away. That is not good.

HASH(0xa159f4d4) out of 5 stars Confusion Reigns Feb. 14 2005
By P. Bolton - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I am a Tom Clancy addict, I've read them all. This is absoultly the worst book ever put out under his name. Actually it may be the worst book of its type I have ever tried to read. I put it down after about 100 pages. There is no plot, the characters are one dimentional, and the story drags, with many pages that have nothing to do with the story. Grindly keeps going off into virtual reality and these little excursions make absolutly no sense. I will sell my copy, used for ten cents, and will be drasticly overcompensated.

HASH(0xa156dfa8) out of 5 stars A point to make Jan. 27 2005
By J. S. Baum - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I have agree that this is the worst book of the series so far, but if you'll examine the credits a bit more, you'll see that Clancy isn't responsible for this farce. He had the basic concept and then handed it over to Perry. And I ahve to say quite honestly that Perry generally isn't that great an author, he seems to generate most of his sales by hanging onto the coattails of better authors and series i.e. Clancy, Star Wars, etc... But don't blame Clancy for this one, unless you think he should have proofread it first.
