Book review: Ghost Recon by Tom Clancy and David Michaels

Ghost Recon by David Michaels

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I love Tom Clancy’s novels, and I took a chance on this one, which is a spinoff of his by another author. The plot was interesting, and the action fast-paced. Maybe it was the mood I was in, but despite those factors, the book just did not grab me. The characters were flat (which is a common problem in a military thriller, even Clancy’s), and there wasn’t enough oomph to make up for it. There was an attempt at dealing with mental health issues, but it was done in such a cursory way that it felt unauthentic.
It was an easy and fast read and entertaining enough, but it certainly didn’t make me rush out to buy the next installment.
