Description

The President is dead. Now, the weight of the world falls on Jack Ryan’s shoulders in this extraordinary #1 New York Times bestseller from Tom Clancy.

At the climax of Debt of Honor, the most devastating terrorist act in the history of the world left the President, the Joint Chiefs, the Supreme Court, and nearly all of Congress dead. Only Jack Ryan, confirmed Vice President mere minutes before, survived to take the reins of a shaken and leaderless country. Now he must rebuild a government, comfort a grieving nation, and become a true leader. Meanwhile, he is surrounded by enemies—both inside the White House and around the world—all of them plotting to destroy an untested President. And bring an already wounded country to its knees....

    A typical Tom Clancy book but sadly the EXTENSIVE typos detract from reading. Clancy already places unusual words in his stories. Having words completely spelld wrong interrupts the flow of reading. It would have been a 4 star except for typos.
  • Great book, but bad transition into e books

    Great plot with numerous moving parts. I couldn't stop reading. Full throttle the whole time. However it was annoying to see that "e"s were "c"s and "H"s were "11"s etc. it's worth the read hopefully they'll fix the e edition to reflect the paper back.
  • Would have been a 4... except for the editing

    The plot of this book is exceptional. The character development is good albeit maybe a little too deeply introspective with regard to Jack Ryan. Like many books this one suffers from technical (usually medical) misstatements. The MAJOR flaw in this book is the editing. I don't know if this book was scanned from a paper original or taken from a pre-edited electronic copy but the spelling errors are ridiculous. I know editing has become kind of a back burner kind of thing lately but COME ON. Running across a spelling error every 10 pages is a bit much. Overall, a good book. Could have been a great book without the constant editorial goofs.

    What a waste of ink and time. Like a telephone book, many pages but no action. Shame on the ghost writer.

    I'm currently reading the Ryan/Clark series in order of events. This book isn't as cloak and dagger super spy as most of the prior Ryan/Clark experiences, however this is by far the most entertaining story yet. Until you read Executive Orders, you haven't read Clancy.
  • Love Tom Clancy

    Phenomenal book, extremely well written and if I had it my way I elect the jack Ryan character in this book to actually be president. I love the political policies and eventually the war. The vast majority of the book of the book is based on political topics and what would it really look like if the entire government were destroyed of leadership in one blow. Loved it and I can't wait to sink my teeth into the next one.
  • Love this book, but...

    This is easily my favorite Jack Ryan book. I've read it many times and really enjoyed the portability of having it on my phone. However, at the price I paid, I would have expected less typographical errors within it. How difficult is it to use spell check, Apple?

    Welllll, it has happened again. I just paid for an ebook through this program and got exactly 267 pages of mostly errors. What has happened to this publishing company? They are now jerking people off. This is the 3rd book in a row that has nothing to it. Ronald W. King Now I want a total refund on the last three books that I purchased.
  • Awesome book

    I an slowly but surely making my way through the Ryan universe. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It was one of the better ones in the series in my opinion.
