I am sure this will mean more to me than to the rest of you, and this may seem like a strange way to break a rather long silence, but I view it as a rather significant milestone:
I finally finished the Ryanverse series by Tom Clancy!………(with caveat)
As explained in previous posts, I have been making my way through the lengthy saga for several years now and since I began the series there had been no new novels, until 2010. In the past two years Clancy, with assistance from other writers, has published three additional novels, two of which extend the Ryanverse universe. I have made the decision that since these novels are not “pure” Clancy that I will consider my accomplishment complete.
Of course I plan to read the additional novels, but with the vast myriad of books and genres available I find it more difficult to restrict myself to this narrow focus.
Thank you Tom Clancy, it was a memorable experience!
