Reviews Night Moves (Tom Clancy's Net Force, #3)

  • Sofie Giocante
    This book offers many good tips on how to build high-quality code. More importantly, it helps create a base framework of a manual that a cmopany could use to stanadrdise the coding styles of its engineering force. One shouldn’t follow all the tips listed in the book, but the book SURELY gives nice directions.

    This is the first one of these I've read. I did not find it as good as the Jack Ryan books or even the Op-Center series but still enjoyable.(Note: I'm stingy with stars. For me 2 stars means a good book. 3 = Very good; 4 = Outstanding {only about 5% of the books I read merit this}; 5 = All time favorites {one of these may come along every 400-500 books})

    This book was excellent and hard to put down at times. After reading this I started reading "Cyber Nation" and:in "Night Moves" a character named Nadine was Tyrone's girl friend but in "Cyber Nation" Nadine is Mr Howards wife.Proof readers where are you?
  • Angela Owens
    Excellent! Have "almost" read all of Clancy and Pieezenik
  • Kristoffer Erickson
    Good character development, and a very easy story to follow... If slightly predictable. I did enjoy it.
  • Steve
    There was so much that I hated about this book that I don't want to even go into it in this forum. Simply put, don't waste your time.

    It's rare that a long-running series like NET FORCE feels so devoid of fresh ideas this early on in the proceedings. Here we are only in Book #3, and already it seems author Steve Perry is struggling to scrape together a fresh plot.Like Book #2 in the series, NIGHT MOVES mostly forgoes the sorts of things you'd typically expect from a Tom Clancy novel, preferring instead to deal with scene after scene of interpersonal drama. Having just hooked up...

    I am reviewing the novel Tom Clancy's Net Force Night Moves which is a very good book which I bought from kindle. This story I think is science fiction and is set in the near future but that is 2010 but this is quite an old book. The plot revolves around a world that is reliant on super computers and they are all set to crash. There are 2 computer experts who maybe could sort it out but they have strokes. There are a lot of different characters i...

    This book was OK. It might have been better if I had read #1 or #2 first, but it stood on its own fairly. I'm a sucker for a good military action novel, and in that regard, this was pretty satisfying. I have two complaints, though.The first complaint is all the virtual reality stuff. I'm a computer guy, so I know first hand that my job would make one really boring novel. Clearly, the authors had to do SOMETHING to make those parts worth reading. ...
  • Rachel
    Okay, okay, I broke down and bought the whole series to date. This is the third Net Force book, and Tom Clancy's influence wanes a bit, pulling it more squarely into Steve Perry territory. It loses some of the hard military edge that Clancy pulls into the books he authorizes, but it holds onto enough to keep my attention. Besides, I'm a total Steve Perry fan. And anyone who can motivate him to list good knives by name (A Cold Steel Culloden (whic...
  • Michael Bates
    Pros: I will admit that the biggest thing that had me turning pages was Alex and Toni's relationship. By the end of the book I had to go try to find the next one in the series. I just had to know what the heck happened.(I mean I had an idea but you know) My favorite character though is Jay and he doesn't disappoint in this one.The virtual reality is pretty cool to me. Little out there but still pretty awesome. John Howard is badass and very likea...

    Riveting plot, great character development, and it was fascinating to read a futuristic set novel that pegs British high-society as the antagonists (a fresh brand of enemy not ventured by Clancy and Pieczenik). Similar to my review on Hidden Agendas (Net Force #2), this is a series that should be read in the order they were published to understand the backgrounds and motivations of the characters. Once again, Clancy did not disappoint.
  • S.B. Sebrick
    I was a little confused at the beginning because we hopped from one point of view to another four times (four different characters) in as many chapters. Once the story got going though, it flowed well. Tom does a great job of maintaining tention not just with the overall plot, but with the character's indiviual challenges. He picks a fairly wide range, so that something one of his characters are expiriencing will ciertianly ring true with a reade...
  • Toby
    This book is exciting because of the espionage plot, but nearly embarrassing to read because of how dated the tech references are. Weird lingo that I don't think anyone ever actually used. All the tech is done in 'VR' which is hysterical now. In fact, if you're a geek, you might have fun reading it because of how hokey it is...
  • Nile
    another interesting thriller and very interesting development of the characters of Net Force. The story line is tight and at times a bit too much considering the technology. But it is a make believe thriller, the action is realistic and I seemed to like the Russian. If you are a thriller fan or want to try Tom Clancy this is a good one.
  • Judith
    I really enjoyed Net Force Explorers, but I think I like them better. Not that it was a bad book, but some parts such as the relationship drama were just not that interesting to me. Of course, this stuff links the various books in the series, but I didn't particularly enjoy it. Otherwise it was fine.
  • Martha
    I read Night Moves right after finishing Net Force, the first book in this series. I have not yet read the second book, Hidden Agendas. I found Night Moves to be a better book than Net Force. I had trouble getting through Net Force, even though I enjoy this type of book, but Night Moves was much more interesting to me. I look forward to reading more of the series.
  • Ian
    In my opinion, you either like Tom Clancy or you don’t. I think is has more to do with the topics he writes about. If you do like him, most of his books are pretty good. You might like some more than others, but just about all of them are suspenseful and gripping. 9 times out of 10, you’ll be very glad you read his work.
  • James Atkinson
    2013-04-12 is one of the worst books I've ever read.Without the irrelevant padding (mostly lifted from book 1) this would only run 100 pages. Micheals is as unlikable as ever. The plot makes absolutely no sense, Gosford is a Daily Mirror fantasy figure and the overall quality of writing is appalling. Shame on Tom Clancy and Steve Perry.
  • Rebecca Shields
    This decade-old vision of where cyberspace would be today is not as suspenseful as one would hope. The search for a master hacker both in the Real World and Virtual Reality is mildly interesting, but not much more than that.
  • Wade Wiegel
    A little slow building up to the end due to character development. Additionally, the story humanized the main character Alex a bit too much -- made him seem a little weak and fallible. The end, while almost too neat, was still unexpected.
  • Dan
    Not bad. A lot of action but not much in the character development area. I couldn't relate to the characters. It was cluttered with a couple of side stories that got in the way of the main story (teenage problems and relationship problems).
  • Bharath M
    A weak piece of literature, moves very slowly with so many unnecessary sub stories. The description of virtual world is ridiculously bad. A 100 page book stretched to 350 pages. Their is no point in the kid's(tyrone) story line,such a waste of time.
  • Diane
    Starts off really slow, but then most of the action happens too quickly. Also, if your book has so many random acronyms that you have to define each and every one each time they come up, you might have too many acronyms.
  • Osarenren Ihaza
    2.5 stars. Night Moves was not an improvement to the previous installments but it was not particularly terrible either. Nothing new here. The story wasn't much about "advanced" technology as it was about the increasingly complicated relationship between Alex and Toni.
  • Kellen
    This was a good vacation book, but the story was a bit weak and the characters not really that believable.
  • Buddy Draper
    Good enough to keep my attention.
  • Parker
    An interesting portrayal of a quantum-computer invented by a criminal mastermind. Despite the lame VR world-as-manifestation-of-the-Internet, a good read.
  • Pat
    Computer police of not too distant future.Super duper computer invented.Not bad.
  • Thomas Roth
    A touch disappointing when compared to other parts of the series. A lot of personality developments both good and bad. The basic premise continues to be rock solid.
