Picks and Pans Review: Tom Clancy
In his long-winded thriller about the 1981 murder attempt against Pope John Paul II, Clancy abandons the breathless pacing that made his previous novels, such as The Hunt for Red October, bestsellers. Six hundred pages trudge by eventlessly as CIA analyst Jack Ryan deals with family life, while Soviet apparatchiks hold meetings, and U.S. intelligence officials hold meetings to discuss what might be going on in the Soviet meetings. The reader, however, already knows how the whole story will turn out: Pope, 1, sinner, nothing.
