In 1981 Pope John Paul II threatens Moscow and Warsaw that if the repressive government does not ease off the people he will resign his current position and return to his native Poland, causing an international incident. Hard line Soviet KGB leader Yuri Andropov refuses to sit idly by and accept the Pope¿s intimidation.

Historian Jack Ryan conducts research in England when the CIA and the British SIS recruit him as an analyst. Jack learns from a defector that Andropov plans to assassinate the Pope. Even for the Russian Bear that seems farfetched, but then again sending a confrontational message involving world affairs appears out of the ordinary for the Papacy. Still Jack needs to find confirmation that Andropov has decreed that Pope John Paul II must die. If he finds his evidence, the tyro spy knows he enters a realm that his entire life has not prepared him for in the slightest, as he must find a way to keep the Pope safe from the Soviets.

RED RABBIT is a clever prequel that places Jack at the beginning of his espionage career. By doing this, Tom Clancy enlivens his hero, yet keeps his core values consistent with the other novels. The story line is exciting as the rookie Jack seeks proof while engaging in a battle of wits though readers will wonder why the novice has such responsibilities with something of this magnitude. Still Jack is back doing what he does best, leading to the audience enjoyment of an old fashioned Cold War thriller.

Red Rabbit By: Tom Clancy My name is Ronnie Haines, I'm 17 years old almost 18 in 2 months, why I picked this book is because I love war books and my dad has read it (he has all the Tom Clancy books) and he read some to me then I got into them and I started reading his books, why I'm writing this is because I'm a senior in high school but I have to make up some credits so I'm in a sophomore English class and the teacher is having us do a book review on the book we read. Red Rabbit is written by Tom Clancy. Tom Clancy is the popular American author of "techno-thrillers", novels of political and military intrigue and complex geopolitical themes mingled with remarkably accurate details of modern high-tech military hardware. He's also written several highly respected non-fiction guides to military history and hardware. Clancy himself turned 18 as Vietnam War casualties were mounting, but never served in the military. College students were exempt from the military draft, and Clancy studied at Loyola College before becoming an insurance broker. (http://www.nndb.com/people/504/000022438/) In the early 1980's long before we fought terrorist attacks, Vice Admiral James Greer was the President of the CIA, Jack Ryan was a Historian, Teacher, and recent ex-marine living in England, and he was researching a book, a series of deadly encounters with an IRA splinter group. And it just tells you about what he goes threw, the CIA, life. I would give it a 5 star rating, because it has great detail, it's a good book it would be had for a kid to read this but it's a good book to read if you're into war books. I really like the book, like I said above I love reading Tom Clancy's books and playing his video games, there always fun and interesting.

After the hugely drawn-out 'Bear and the Dragon' (getting paid by the word, Tom?), 'Red Rabbit was practically a pamphlet. T.C. can really bring the reader into the lives of mundane people going about their daily grind in a way few others can. To find these 'peons' as main characters shows, to me at least, that there are no unimportant people, everyone can make a difference in the grand scheme of things. Having been a fan of his fiction since the 1st printing of 'Hunt for Red October' - am I that old? (yes) - I was glad to see him return to his strengths with this one. It's not as tight as it could, or should, be but certainly headed in the correct direction.

First off, I am 14, I have been into Tom Clancey's literature for 4 years now, ever sicne I read his books on Netforce 4 years ago. Red Rabbit was a very itneresting book, not as much Espianauge as in Rainbowsix, but a great title, though it has some weak points in it, it is still very well done and has its own strong points throughout the story.

I am from sweden and I have read the translation of this book. And i though it was great, not that much action, ok, but that isn`t everything. It did happen alot in it, and I can`t undestand all the bad reviewers. No, it is just as good as all the other clancy books.

Dear reader, <br> ____ I have always had a love for all animals great and small, and a fantasy that they are a as civilized as, if not more than, us. We just misunderstamd them, and they us. Please think deeply of my stories. <p> In a land of happiness, eight rabbit tribes fought over the best food and the least wolves. <br> There was FlightTribe, ShadowTribe, IcyTribe, FuzzyTribe, WonderTribe, MysteryTribe, LightTribe, and SufferingTribe. MoonTribe lived in the sky. <br> "Natali, Gofuun, Adaken, Fikip, Rose, IcyTribe gather!" Called the tribe king, Aebon. Natali, the queen, quickly hopped next to him. <br> "IcyTribe must welcome twelve new bunnies." The queen picked up the bunnies one by one, the first was a black one with a white splotch on his face. "This shall be Nightare." The second was an all white girl with long fur. "This shall be Cloud." The third was a brown boy. "This shall be Gavtert." The fourth was another brown boy with a white tail. "This shall be Gear." The fifth was a small, creamy, runty girl. "This shall be Little." <p> And so on. The tribe king started speaking: "ShadowTribe and FuzzyTribe has been caught foraging our food! We have allowed FuzzyTribe, but ShadowTribe is outrageous!" The IcyTribe were prepared to start singing the warsong. <br> "We will organize a war party. Dieu, Kister, Frosst, Snaek, you will be going to attack ShadowTribe." The queen bellowed. <br> "Now!" Roared the king as Dieu, Kister, Frosst, and Snaek ran out of the safe haven. <p> They left the icy hills and headed for the ShadowTribe territory. It was dark and in the middle of a creepy forest. Dieu was starting to hum the warsong, which the whole group broke out into singing at the top of their lungs. "It the frost and the snow, <br> hiding from sight, <br> Lives many a life! <br> Protecting the hills our ancestors forraged, forraging for food we must." Then it got louder. <br> "In the frost and snow! <br> Hiding from sight! <br> Lives many a life! <br> Even when we loose lives to the ice and cold, <br> we survive... <br> WE CAN NEVER BACK DOWN!" Then it was a roar. <br> "IN THE FROST AND SNOW! <br> HIDING FROM SIGHT! <br> LIVES MANY A LIFE! <br> We may be small but we keep strong, <br> Zo zooh, <br> Zo zooh, <br> We pretect our ancient land, <br> Evil like you will not stand, <br> Zo zooh, <br> So run away while you can, <br> We are hoping with anger!" Then it was a booming echo <br> IN THE FROST AND SNOW!! <br> HIDING FROM SIGHT!! <br> LIVES MANY A LIFE!! <br> ZO ZOOH <br> ZO ZOOH <br> RUN OR HIDE OR PERISH <br> WE WILL NOT LET YOU STAY! <br> GO AWAY, <br> OUR KING DOES NOT LIKE YOUR COMPANY!" And the song went on, a musical masterpiece to show who's boss. <p> Soon enough they found a ShadowTribe patrol party. <br> It was a writhing mass of biting and scratching, and eventually the ShadowTribe patrol ran away, the IcyTribe with barely any wounds, minus Snaek's body. <p> (five likes to continue!)

I liked that Clancy finally decided to use the Pope as the subject of one of his political thrillers, but Russian defectors was a subject that Clancy covered already. I also did not like that there was a significant drop in the action in the middle of the book and Jack Ryan had a smaller role than the other books. If anyone wants to read a pair of great Jack Ryan books, pick up Debt of Honor and Executive Orders.
