Hoooooo. Very interesting, this is.
The new Jack Ryan novel is a prequel that takes place when he’s in his late 20s/early 30s.
One really has to wonder if Tom Clancy started writing this before or after Ben Affleck signed up to start making the Ryan movies. (Hollywood had already made the other ‘young’ Ryan novel “Patriot Games” into a movie.)
Who wants to bet this is the next one they make?
