I have always enjoyed reading Tom Clancy – it is the equivalent of chick ‘lit for blokes. The Bear and the Dragon was a slight disappointment – probably due to its length and complexity. The last few hundred pages when the action gets going were fantastic and utterly enthralling, but before then it was at times a bit too over the top. Worth reading but only if you’ve got plenty of time – there are far better Clancy books out there.
