Tom Clancy, Rainbow Six - I was enjoying the book and wanting to see how the evil characters would be unmasked. I was at the point of the IRA attacking Rainbow 6 when Clancy lost control of his book. He used the most artificial method to throw the spotlight on Popov. In literature terms it is called duex ex machina, which means an unexpected, artificial, or improbable character, device, or event introduced suddenly in a work of fiction or drama to resolve a situation or untangle a plot....

This is definatly one of the best books I have ever read. Rainbow Six would be the first Tom Clancy book I read so far and it just shows me how amazing of a writer he is, and I'm only half-way done with it! He descibes everything so well and it's so cool how he describes it. If you are looking for just pure shooting and huge explosions with no real meaning except for shooting, shooting, shooting, then don't get this, you're far too unintellegent for this book. However if you are looking for... (read more)

The book was one of the best i've ever read and I strongly recommend it. If you liked "Without Remorse" this is a must buy novel. It starts out with Ding and John in a plane on the way to England were there are some terrorists aboard. Ding and John take them out and the plot builds quite rapidly. (read more)

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six is the most brilliant action thriller book. Good description of people, places and things. Recommended for everyone over 13 years old due to excessive use of coarse language. This book cannot be missed. The way Clancy keeps you in suspense and makes you want to continue reading is amazing. All of his other books are also fantastic. (read more)

I would recommend Rainbow Six because of the thought provoking issues on looking after the planet. Pity it has to be nearly 1,000 pages. Good ending though - no spoiler ! (read more)

I thought that Rainbow Six, by Tom Clancy, was an excellent book, Clancy made you wanna keep on reading. The whole multinational anti terrorist group was a great idea. Clancy had all the latest gadgets in, which i thought was great. I would recommend this book to others, it was a great book to read - i never got bored. (read more)

Rainbow Six by Tom Clancy makes for excellent reading. It catches the readers attention and is very suspenseful. I wouldn't recomend this book to younger readers though because the language is too much. Plus the violence in this book is too much. (read more)

Rainbow Six is Clancy running on autopilot. Whilst the original concept behind it - an elite multinational counterrorist special ops team is created by NATO to deal with global terrorism in the post cold war world - is intriguing and potentially thrilling to read about, the novel as a whole fails to capitalise on this. The characters (with the possible exception of a character who isn't even one of the soldiers) are dull and we have no pathos with them. Clark, the dark horse hero of previous... (read more)

This book is a brilliant insight into the way the minds of terrorists work and the thoughts of the guys who have to lead them to meet their maker. Plenty of gripping hostage situations which leave a real feeling of suspense. The way the Rainbow members skills are described and what they acheive made me go out and buy a bb gun. A truly brilliant book. (read more)

The book moves into something unique: Clark as the commander of Rainbow Six, a counter terrorist group that tries to limit the bad guys in the world. I thought the way that the story moved along smoothly was great, and the bad guys are a group that you would never expect: enviromentalist. thats right, the tree huggers are the bad guys in this plot, though I thought it to be a rude interpretation of such tree huggers, it still was very interesting and I enjoyed the angle. There are a lot of... (read more)

The book has four or five climaxes. It looks as if Clancy could not make up his mind about a conclusion. The soldiers are portrayed as robots, and he goes into far too much irrelevant detail. His other novels benefitted from attention to detail but the plot lines were always tied to the manouvering of nation statesand in these situations detail was necessary. The idea that an environmentalist would cull the worlds population is not a plausible plot. Rainbow Six is an outright attack on the... (read more)
