Book was OK. The major problem with it is that th book was too detailed with technical details. For example, all of the detail depicted in the assembling of the bomb was too much. It made the book longer than necessary and very difficult to read at times. I rated this for 16 and older because it was a difficult read at times. It took me a while to read it due to the technical aspects put into a lot of the book and I lost interest for a week at a time. There were some times that sucked you in, especially the last 15% of the book.

This terrific novel although 20 years old is a great commentary on what could happen in a world that is epitomized by the partisanship, personal ambition of individuals and the total lack of coordination and/or cooperation of various bureaucracies within current and recent governments both here and abroad.

Another of Clancy's worst case scenarios plays out; the book is a bit too long and ponderous, and Clancy once again is way too enthusiastic about technology.
