The Bear and the Dragon

Author: Tom Clancy
Reviewer's Age: Grade 10

This story unfolds when China goes to war with Russia. Its main characters are Jack Ryan, prez of the USA, Hugo Chavez, CIA agent, and many more. As usual in Tom Clancy novels, the books began with many stories, completely random. However, as the story progresses, the story lines come together for a dramatic ending. Clancy's books are awesome, you can't put them down. I recommend this book for any war reading enthusiast (ages 14+).
