About the Author

Tom Clancy was the author of eighteen #1 New York Times-bestselling novels. His first effort, The Hunt for Red October, sold briskly as a result of rave reviews, then catapulted onto the bestseller list after President Ronald Reagan pronounced it "the perfect yarn." Clancy was the undisputed master at blending exceptional realism and authenticity, intricate plotting, and razor-sharp suspense. He passed away in October 2013.

I'm a huge Tom Clancy fan and anxiously awaited his new book. However its quite clear that this is not written by Clancy, and he has just lent his name to a moneymaking exercise.

Its a thriller, and I guess its ok. But its certainly not a Tom Clancy book. Its let down in the details which Clancy always gets right. For example in the book a drug dealer lets someone shoot him with a .45 to test out a bulletproof coat, and he barely notices the impact. In the real world the kinetic impact would break his ribs. In another chapter a navy seal picks up two pistols and runs at his enemies firing them two handed, something counter to every military tactic known.

In numerous little details the author gets it wrong, where Clancy consistently gets it right. For this reason I doubt very much if Clancy even proofread the thing before adding his name to it.

In character development, plot development... its average. Not bad, its certainly readable, but pure garbage.

I wish I had 3 thumbs so I could give it 3 thumbs down

I made it to page 2 before seeing proof that this is another non-Clancy work. Here's a part of a sentence describing the Pakistan Special Service Group: (it isn't dialogue)
"...an organization similar to the U.S. Navy SEALs, but, ahem, their operators were hardly as capable."

'Ahem'? Amongst non-dialogue description in a book not written in any 1st-person narrative? C'mon. I stopped reading at page 14, and I'm returning the purchase.

I'm sure it might be an entertaining read for some, but it's obviously a low-quality work written by an author who writes the fictional equivalent of B-movies. I worked at a Border's for five years, ending in 2006, and I'd never even heard of Peter Telep until now. The entire Los Angeles Public Library System only shows two other titles of his, written in '95, and '99, neither of which I'd ever heard of.
According to Telep's blurb on the book jacket, we're supposed to believe that this is Tom Clancy collaborating with an author who's works include "science fiction, fantasy, military action/adventure, and medical drama, and film, television, and video game tie-ins."
Seriously?

ATTN ALL CLANCY FANS: Save yourself the curiosity. This item would be a waste of money.

I have been a Tom Clancy Fan since I first read Red Storm Rising. Over the years I quickly read all of the Jack Ryan novels, many of them multiple times. I can even say that I didnt mind Dead or Alive. Now to Against All Enemies. I knew that it was a collaberation when I bought it. Once I started reading the first chapter I realized that Tom Clancy had nothing to do with the writing of this book. The style is very different, there is none of the descriptive writing that is Clancy's style. The writing in fact is very poor and vague.

For fans out there that are on the fence, if you are buying the book for the plot line, then thats fine. If you are buying it with the hope that the book is in any shape or form Tom Clancy, dont waste your money. If you are at the bookstore undecided, grab a copy with a quick starbucks, and read the first chapter and make your decision then.

Reviewers seem ready to harshly savage this book with a 1 star, or go breathlessly fanboy and give it a 5. Either ranking is absurdly misplaced.

Clancy is not "back," as many of the 5 star folks looking to be quoted somewhere else proclaim. I seriously question how much of this book, if any, he actually wrote versus helping with an idea and/or a plot outline only. Technical inaccuracies are present (i.e. referring to the round caliber in one place as a "7.63 mm" when it is 7.62, making a similar error on the case length part of the caliber in another place). Does this take away from the readability or the story devleopment? Absolutely not - but given that Clany in no small part developed his reputation on technical accuracy back when that was almost unheard of, it matters to his fans. Similarly, the character development doesn't grab you like an older Clancy, and the storyline is largely a reboot of "Clear and Present Danger" with some slight borrowing/mixing from other past stories.

It is also, however, not a 1 star book. Editing was sub-par (misspellings, technical editing for military accuracy probably non-existent) and the ending is somewhat forced. However, it is interesting and timely enough that I read it over 2 days and really didn't feel any struggle or rallying was needed to get to the end. A decent beach read, a good book to throw in your carry-on if you have some flying coming up in your schedule. If I had a 10 hour car ride ahead of me, this book would easily keep me reading. I wouldn't, however, be staying up to all hours of the morning to finish it ASAP.

On a final note, when the original Clancy novels came out, I was 1.) a teenager, and 2.) the action/fiction market was stagnant.

The last time I read a, "Tom Clancy", novel was in August of 2002, it was "Red Rabbit. It was a terrible book and after 622 readers had commented it had a well-deserved and miserable rating of 2 stars. I decided then I was done with this author and that was before he decided he needed help putting out a novel in the form of a co-author.

I don't know what happened to this author who wrote, "The Hunt For Red October", and a string of other entertaining reads but he has either lost interest in writing fiction or run out of ideas. I have no idea how much of this book he wrote, whether he penned an outline or contributed heavily to what is presented to readers.

The facts are that he now cannot give us a novel without a co-author, the writing is terrible, and unlike his early work, this novel turns you away quickly, just the opposite of his Jack Ryan books. Again, why this is the case is pure speculation but the results are sadly evident.

Thankfully, readers are given the opportunity to sample the electronic version before being expected to pay a fee comparable to the hardcover, an absurd presumption on the part of the publisher.

Enjoy his early work, do not waste your time or your hard-earned money on this very poor work of fiction.
