What does /lit/ think of Tom Clancy?

Hunt for Red October is a great thriller. Everything else is fucking shit.

Highest paid author of the 90s.
Why?
>>
I read "Red Storm Rising" while locked away in a mental ward and loved every fucking page.

I tried a few of his other works (Red Rabbit, Clear and Present Danger, The something in the Kremlin) and they were all overbloated and over cliched.

I think he had amazing technical knowledge and possessed an admirable passion for his work. But at the other end, I don't care for any of his characters.

Because he consistently released work, he was well known as the dominant figure within his specific war thriller niche and his books regularly sold. I guess this should qualify Stephan King too, but eh.

as opposed to genre non-fiction?

The first book of his I read was Rainbow 6 and I thought it was bad ass. Then The Bear And The Dragon which also ruled. Since then I have read most of his stuff, nice military/techo thrillers.
