SSN Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of SSN

Fantastic book, as are all Clancy novels. This book is based on a game created by Clancy...While the game leaves much to be desired, the book is wonderful. There are 15 scenarios in the book, and all are action packed. While this is far from the norm for Clancy, it is a welcome change. There isn't much techno buildup, but there is wonderful action. I was pleasantly suprised that I liked this book, I figured that without the usual technical jargon, the book would be lacking the beauty of a regular Clancy book, but it wasn't. I recommend this to anyone who has already read a lot of Clancy material, and is looking for something new.
