The only other Clancy books I have read are Teeth of the Tiger
and Hunt for the Red October
. I don't think Rainbow Six
gets nearly as technical as October but I don't think it is as good as Tiger.
Here is my one big complaint with Rainbow. It truly is 3 novels wrapped into one. Clancy does a good job of describing the back stories but they come at all parts of the novel. I mean I am 500 pages into the novel and a new back story starts to develop. But I will say this. I just got done reading an action scene that was 40 or so pages long and I couldn't put down the book. It am starting to get closer and closer to the end and it keeps getting more interesting, I just wish it could have been done in 600 pages instead of almost 900. I would recommend reading it as long as you realize its going to take you a while.
