Book Description

Feb. 27 2003 Tom Clancy's Net Force

In the year 2010, computers are the new superpowers. Those who control them control the world. To enforce the Net Laws, Congress has created the ultimate computer security agency within the FBI: Net Force.

Minor viruses are eating away at the Net Force computers. The e-mial shut-downs and flickering monitors are hardly emergencies -- but they've been keeping the tech department hopping. Same with the sudden rash of time-consuming lawsuits. No one in the Net Froce has a moment to spare, which is exactly the way Mitchell Townsend Ames wants it. Because when the shadowy mastermind launches his master plan, he wants Net Force to be looking the other way...

1.0 out of 5 stars Can anyone just stop this??? June 20 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I do have similar view several Net Force books back but this one really wins it - and makes me write this. Could anyone tell the authors not to continue as they seem to forever??? A plot which is less than void of anything of action, predictable heroes with hobbies that the authors never seem to be bothered to recapitulate at least three times within one book, and if, being totally used they disappear simply to be replaced by new ones who happily continue the same path... One really wonders if Mr. Clancy needs to put his name on the cover of these books. Awwwful.

1.0 out of 5 stars One of the worst Nov. 18 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
To be honest, I haven't read the whole book. I am the type of person who once I start reading a book I will read it regardless of how good or bad it is. For some reason, I feel an obligation to either myself or the author. This book was so bad I had to quit. This was my first read from this Net Force series. The author tried to get fancy with technology/futurism by describing the mundane use a computer as a virtual reality exercise. That literary 'technique' turned me off. After discussing how much I disliked the beginning of this book with a friend, I was turned onto Clive Cussler (Flood Tide) and am really enjoying that.

2.0 out of 5 stars Generic At Best Sept. 19 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This seventh book in the now stale Net Force series offers nothing new and is better left alone. The Net Force series started off fresh but the books have since grown forced and clichéd. Writers Perry and Segriff seem to still follow the same plot blueprint that most of the books have followed: ruthless bad guy with a diabolical scheme (even though we never learn what it is), a lowlife assassin, a new set of net viruses (a requirement), and Net Force saving the day. At least in this book the writers decide to change the status quo a little in the ending and provide a jumping-off point for bored readers.
There are a wealth of better alternative books: readers looking for military/political thrillers should check out Tom Clancy's REAL books, while readers wanting action/adventure should try Clive Cussler's writings, and readers looking for future/tech should try some of William Gibson's books.

2.0 out of 5 stars The first Tom Clancy I read was not a good one! Aug. 14 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
My wife picked this up for me - she thought I might enjoy Tom Clancy. In fact I do - but this isn't really Tom Clancy at all and, in fact, I'm embarrassed for him.
The good news: It's an easy and almost fun read.
The bad news: The writing is absolutely dreadful. I mean really really bad.
I will give some other Net Force books a chance some time. The premise is interesting and there are supposed to be some good books in the series out there. This, unfortunately, is not one of them!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best, but a fast read June 27 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have to agree that this book does not live up to the expectations of anything associated with Tom Clancy. The book was a fast read for me. I agree a lot of the computer stuff is fantasy at best, with a little too much Virtual Reality [...] involved.The entire book would probably take only 30 minutes in a film. If you like the Net Force series, you will probably like this one too, but if you are a Tom Clancy fan and have never read this series, be warned that it is not written by Clancy, and that is quite eveident.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst Tom Clancy's Novel ....Period! May 12 2003
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is by far the worst Tom Clancy's (or franchise) novel to date. It got so much un-interesting facts / drama / nonsense, that keep me guesing.. where is the good stuff???
Even after reading it (which is a waste of time) I still don't understand the intention of the bad guys (controling the world with network chaos, etc etc??)
This novel also bears a lot of product endorsement. <...

State of War had everything except good authors. I know Clancy's career doesn't exactly revolve around the NetForce series,but he should have kept writing them instead of letting someone else. Anyway, State of War is a multi-point-of-view story. It focuses on a lawyer that loves to see the system crumble, his lap-dog who discovers the excitement of killing a man, and the usual NetForce cast. The first Netforce book had the same subplot on top of supplot basis, but it worked for the book, mostly because the author was Clancy. But in State of War, the different angles are stretched too thin. The problem is since that there are so many charachters there's a chance you'rs going to end up reading an entire chapter about someone you don't care about and want top know about another charchter who doesn't pop up for another eight chapters. The anti-reality Jay Gridley was the main character I couldn't stand to read about. There are about three chapters out of fifteen that he's in where's he's not in the middle of some virtual-reality place that doesn't exist so you just don't care. However, the key element to State of War is Junior (the lap-dog in question). Something about the extreme measures he take to fix his stupid mistakes shows the excitement the book tried to project. The problem with State is that there are too many people to keep track of and most of them you don't like. The idea was great- the 3D charachters, likable good guy, likably bad bad guy, and the list goes on. The authors' inability to keep you interested is the main problem. Would I recomend this? Sure, why not. But be prepared to skip a bunch of pages.
