Ever since middle school, I have loved Tom Clancy's novels. Within 3 years I had read every one of this books to the time. His writing style is something I enjoy immensely. His books are well written and complex in nature, but the complexity is often overshadowed. My favorite books of his are the trilogy formed by Debt of Honor, Executive Orders, and Bear and the Dragon. However, only two of his books have ever been turned into movies mostly faithful to the books. Hunt For Red October and Patriot Games. Clear and Present Danger was pretty unfaithful, and Sum of All Fears is an embarrassment as far as adapting the novel. Now, Hollywood is taking it even further and taking Jack Ryan and turning him into some sort of American James Bond. I've only seen one of the trailers and it seems to me that the film is so far divorced from the concept of who the Jack Ryan character is, that I cannot see myself ever watching the movie twice. Any other Clancy fans on here want to weigh in?
