RIP Tom Clancy

I was sad to hear that Tom Clancy died earlier this month. I’ve read his first two published novels, The Hunt For Red October and Red Storm Rising, several times. I’ve read a lot of his other books too, but those are still my favourites.

The Hunt For Red October was the first Clancy book I read. It’s a good story, very well told, and the film was better than many films based on books.

Red Storm Rising was the first book I read set in a Cold War turned hot. I’ve read many since, of varying quality, but this is probably still my favourite. I recently bought the audio book – over 31 hours of it – for the bargain price of $19.50 (about £12.00).
