Part of it was that even though it was a prequel, it really didn’t sound like Jack Ryan at all. Mostly it was the plot. It’s the early 1980s-and historian, teacher, and recent ex-Marine Jack Ryan is now a CIA officer on loan to the British SIS. On his very first day, an extraordinary document crosses his desk.

Everything was written down in some huge book, and everybody here played the game by the book. Foley got aboard the subway car, looking around at his fellow passengers, seeing how they looked at him. His clothing marked him as a foreigner as clearly as a glowing halo marked a saint in a Renaissance painting.

I am a huge Clancy fan and am in the middle of reading all the books he wrote over again and this has to be his worst. Unfortunately I didn't realize this was a prequel of sorts so I re-read them sort of in the wrong order. I was waiting for the typical "heart pounding out of my chest" part and never found it. Sure, there is about 3 pages that's piqued my interest towards the end, but the rest was just dialog and creating of characters whom I really didn't care about. I can see there was supposed to be at least one or two books after this one, but obviously he never got around to writing them. I agree with a previous reviewer - many parts of this did not seem like Clancy at all and that was sad and disappointing. I'll continue with The Bear and The Dragon and then the Rainbow Six books but not likely to read the co-authored books. It's just not in the Clancy style and this one didn't seem to be either.
I'm re-reading the Ryan books in chronological order and this book suffers greatly being placed between Patriot Games and The Hunt for Red October. Aside from mixing up character traits (Cathy wants a nanny in Patriot Games then suddenly doesn't in Red Rabbit), Clancy's personal interjections keep pulling me out of the narrative: every citizen of a NATO country fawns over Reagan and Thatcher; the UK's National Health Service is an irredeemable socialist disaster; journalists are a bunch of self-righteous, lefty buffoons (contrast with Marty Cantor's nuanced view in Patriot Games). Maybe I'm mis-remembering books I read 25 years ago but it's just so heavy-handed here.

Some reviewers claim Clancy's writing got better with time but it certainly doesn't show in this one. The pacing is off and he constantly repeats himself. (Hey, did you know that Mary Pat likes to take risks but Ed is more cautious? You might have missed it the first five times and it's VERY important to the story.) I end up skipping most of the Introspective Andropov sections out of sheer boredom.

In short, unless you're compelled to read *all* the Ryan books, skip this one. It adds nothing to your understanding of the characters except for maybe Mary Pat and Ed and even that's overwhelmingly tedious.
I have been reading Tom Clancy novels since the late 80's. And I have always been impressed with his ability to mix global-political intrigue with action, but with technical knowledge/research. It has always been clever how he has developed characters sufficiently such that he can draw on enough previous definition to go back and write a prequel. Red Rabbit managed to combine factual history with fiction to make this a pleasurable, albeit, belated read in his Jack Ryan Sr. series. I have felt that some of his more recent books became (his passing 4 years ago is a great shame) a bit formulaic, as most authors tend to become, by the nature of time. However, this book was both engaging and a page turner because of, both the knowledge and links to familiar characters, and also it's resonance/ integration with historical fact
I believe that this is the last "Jack Ryan" book that Tom Clancy actually wrote, however, it takes place earlier in Mr. Ryan's history - after Patriot Games but before Hunt for Red October. It is a fictionalized account of the assassination attempt on Pope John Paul II. However, who's to say where the history ends and the fiction begins. I like the fact that this book looked back to a time when Jack Ryan worked in the field, instead of sitting around the Oval Office, bemoaning the fact that he was the most powerful man in the world, yet constantly being told how to act like it.
The first half of this book is somewhat slow as it explores the inner workings of British, US, & Russian intelligence services. The Russians hatch a plot to kill the new Polish Pope, as he is, they feel, unduly influencing his former homeland. The KGB is in charge of the plot, but a man of conscience in their own ranks sticks his hand in the raincoat pocket of a CIA chief of station during a ride on a commuter train.
This books takes place after Dr. John Patrick Ryan joins the CIA. He is residing with his young family outside of London. And he is placed as an analyst with Her Majesties Secret Service. From there the plot takes some curious twists and turns.

I consider this book a must read for any die-hard Jack Ryan fan!!!
