    Spy novelist Tom Clancy dies aged 66
    Have read few of his books, and enjoyed them. First book i read of his is "Acts of war". This books talks about plot by kurds to create situations which would start an all-out west asia war which finally might end up in kurdistan. Got to know lot of ethnic groups, issues in west asia via the book. I actually got this book in city central library. I used to go weekend afternoon to read this book. I used to read till library closed at 7 in evening. Then wait till next weekend to continue from where i left it from the previous weekend.

    But his book on indo-pak saga i.e. "Line of control" was not upto the mark i feel. None the less, a good writer. Mostly i will read his last book which will soon come out. RIP.

    I own the collectors editions of his entire Jack Ryan series and read just about everything else. I would say he is my favourite author. RIP Tom, a rare talent has died this day.
