The sigh of satisfaction

For no particular reason I decided to take on the challenge of reading every single Jack Ryan book every written and to do this in chronological order. Using this guide, I ploughed through the list. I clearly remember entering the modern era of Jack Ryan when the average read dropped from 45 hours to 15 hours. The classic Tom Clancy novels of the nineties had a full novel as an introduction; leaving you to wonder, how much you should be paying attention to the detail. But no matter the length the story telling is great and the historical context is excellent.

So job done. Jack Ryan, Jr, Clark, Ding, Dom and Adara see you again when Amazon resurrect you out of sequence and with less super-hero awesomeness.

For the stats: Total reading time – 585 hours , Calendar duration – 20 months.
