- A Decent Sendoff4 star

First off, I highly doubt Clancy put any major input into this one. The book contains some rather boring and drawn out sequences but it's balanced by great action. It was nice to see the return of the classic alliances, organizations and characters. All in all, this book was decent. If you have a few dollars to spare: Get it.

- Command Authority5 star

hard to put down when you start this great story. Clancy delivers again.

- Just So So3 star

I have read three of the latest Clancy books co-authored by Mark Greaney. I liked the other two, Full Force and Threat Vector much better than this one. The failure of Command Authority is that a lot of the Book seemed like a history text. Not enough action. And I think it had a very complex, forced plot. I had to force myself to read large portions of this book. That is not my idea of a great and enjoyable novel. Read the other two. They are great.

- Command Authority5 star

As usual a great read and very apropos to the day’s headlines. I highly recommend this for the action, the insight and the continuing saga of J.R., Junior along with the continued saga of J.R., Senior

- Well done4 star

Have read them all but this one is right up there. Not the best but certainly worth the read. Very different approach weaving the past into the present with Dad and son interacting.

- Fantastic !5 star

Highly recommend. Multiple subplots, great action sequences, interesting characters, this book has it all.

- Command Authority4 star

Another excellent Clancy book. Not as engrossing as earlier works but, still quite good. The bouncing back forth 30 years takes away some suspense, action and story line . Worth the read.

- Disappointed3 star

Slow, unnecessary flashbacks and a sense of two very good writers not being able to pull together...made for a long read! Greaney can write a strong action packed book; and Clancy was very good at one time. But, perhaps conditions existed that did not permit these two writers from morphing into a single entity that took control. The introduction of the long flash-backs was very disruptive to the story and added little, other than, filler for this book . If this had been my first book by these writers, I believe I would have concluded this would be the last I would read.

- Command Authority5 star

This was Tom Clancy's last book. How fascinating that he wrote of Russia taking over Crimea without going into the rest of the Ukraine a year before it happened? Just like in the 90's when he wrote of someone using an airliner as a bomb to destroy the capitol building several years before 9/11. The world lost a great fiction writer last year someone insightful enough to sometimes connect the dots to the future.

- Command Authority5 star

Awesome book. Given the current state of World affairs today, this book is eerie in the way it seems to have predicted current events. It is an easy, gripping read that you don't want to put down. I enjoyed it very much!

- Awful1 star

Very disjointed. Multiple 30 year flashbacks distracting. No continuity. Weak plot. Far, far from the standards of "Hunt for Red October" or "Clear and Present Danger". Don't waste your time with this loser.

- Command Authority4 star

Incredible likeness to current crisis in the Ukraine. It is as if the authors wrote the book today in real time . Only, negative is the characters are many and not necessary.

- Excellent book5 star

Another thrilling book from Tom Clancy and Mark Greaney. RIP Tom Clancy and I hope Mark Greaney can carry on the next chapter of the Ryan's and all the colorful characters that we all have come to love.

- How Does He Do It?5 star

For years I've read Tom Clancy's books and there have been so many times over those years that what I am reading between the covers of the fictional book is simultaneously playing itself out in the real world. Whether it's the Medellin Cartel or the turmoil in Ukraine, Tom Clancy has been dialed in like few else. This book does not disappoint and is eerily in line with our world today. I just hope that the John Clark's and Jack Ryan's of the world are out there putting it all on the line and come out on top as well.

- Good, a tad drawn out.4 star

Enjoyed the book but of the last three Clancy wrote this one was the least entertaining. At one point towards the end I actually forgot how I got to where I was that drawn out. Overall, it was a good book.. I didn't read it in three days like I do Child or Flynn(r.i.p.) but it was good nonetheless.

- Excellent5 star

We lost 2 great authors recently, Tom and Vince Flynn . Both made me love reading and expanding my horizons . Thank you to both for countless hours of entertainment ..this world is a darker place without you

- Loved It/ Clancy did it again5 star

Tom Clancy was ahead of the curve with every real-word scenario. His characters, relationships, and military knowledge allowed you to be immersed into his world. I will miss him. This book is no different in his style of writing. The content is extraordinary and had me running back to it time and time again.

- Command authority4 star

Great read. Typical Clancy keeping things moving quickly.

- Excellent5 star

Another captivating, intrigue filled episode from Clancy. Even though he is with us no longer, I hope his team continues to put out more of "Ryan" series.

- Command Aithority5 star

Best Clancy ever..!

- Command Authority2 star

I found this to be a decent story but filled with unnecessary technicality. Perhaps it was written as a screenplay. The characters were not very well developed. It did not hold my attention for long at a time.

- An excellent FINAL book5 star

Being a Clancy fan for a long time, this one is a good one to end on, could not put it down.

- Fantastic Clancy book!5 star

If only this story can continue.. this book was so good, I think I'll have to reread more Clancy books very soon. God speed my friend.

- Command authoriy2 star

Except for some of the early battle scenes this book was totally predictable, needlessly wordy and boring. You could easily skip thru dozens of pages of useless detail without missing a thing. I knew this would happen from earlier books, but I thought maybe this one would be simpler...better. It wasnt

- Another winner5 star

I have read all of Clancy's fictional novels and this one did not disappoint me. Like the others it is a spine tingling tale that is so believable and exciting. He always paid so much attention to technological details. I am so very sad that this will be the last of Jack Ryan and crew. Clancy was a true genius. My only negative comment is that I really hate the bad language and especially using God's name in vain.

- A beautiful end5 star

After so many wonderful reads, it is with such sad regret this grat book is Tom Clancys last. We will miss him greatly!

- Incredible5 star

It was bittersweet to finish this book. What can you say? Tom Clancy was quite possibly one of the best storytellers of all time. He certainly was the best storyteller of his genre and will be sorely missed.

- Boring1 star

Boring. Dumb stupidity said in a billion pages. Run

- Command authority5 star

Thanks Mr Clancy. It's been fun.

- Very well written5 star

Wow! This story has it all, Jack Jr., President Ryan, The campus, Clark, ding, CIA, FBI, mi5, mi6, and of course Russia and the KGB. Man what an awesome story! Tom Clancy was a great story teller.

- Classic Clancy!5 star

Superb read at every angle! In true Tom Clancy form, the pages flowed as his characters intertwined from past to present. RIP!

- Ok3 star

Good, but could have been better. Obvious which parts Clancy wrote and which parts were added after his passing. Can't believe this is our last real Tom Clancy book! He will be missed.

- Great5 star

Very enjoyable, sad to see it end.

- Command Authority5 star

Truly a masterpiece! Mr. Clancy saved one of his very best for last. A must read.

- Great tale; saddest ending5 star

As every fan of Tom Clancy knows this book was released just after his death. It was the planned release date and his passing was unexpected. I've always hated reaching the end of a Clancy novel since Search for Red October. I hated to see the enthralling story end each time. However, there was always the comfort of anticipating the next tale. Today that comfort, that anticipation, is lost. There will be no more Clancy stories of the Ryans, Clarks, international intrigues and the page turning plot lines that only this master could produce. Others may try to pick up the baton in his name but it is unlikely that they will have the master's touch. Wherever you are now, Tom, I know you are weaving stories that will capture the imagination of you fellows (and gals). You will be sorely missed, but missed with gratitude for all the entertainment you have given your fans over the decades. Yours has been a pinnacle of quality that will stand the test of time. Well done, sir.

- Command Authority5 star

I have read all of Tom Clancy's books and Command Authority is just as good as the first. we have lost a great storyteller too soon. RIP Mr. Clancy.

- A fitting end5 star

I can't believe I just read the last words of the last Clancy novel ever. The book was excellent just like all he had written. We will miss you Tom.
