Why I chose this book • I was in the book store and I noticed the title of the book and knew it was based off the video game. • When I read the back of the book I was very intrigued and wanted to know more about the book. • I noticed the Tom Clancy on the front and heard he was a good author, so I decided to pick it out.
B a s i c Summary

OPSAT attachable camera Equipment SC Pistol • In the novel Sam Fisher uses all kinds of special Third Echelon Gadgets and Weapons to move on in the book. Such as: SC-20k
My Favorite Part of the Book • My Favorite Part of the book is near the end of the book when Sam tells the rest of his team to go on without him and leave him behind. “Hansen started back down toward him. ‘Ben.’ The tone of Fisher’s voice stopped Hansen in his tracks. ‘I can help you, Sam.’ ‘Get everybody topside. I’m right behind you’ ‘Your foot’s broken.’ ‘I’m not going to argue with you. Go now, or the next time I see you I’m going to shoot you”(378). • This is my favorite part of the book because it shows how Sam Fisher puts other people before himself and that he is brave.
The Message • The message of this book is to never give up. The message is to never give up because all the way through the novel, all odds are against Sam Fisher, yet he never gives up which allows him to survive in the worst of situations.
Recommendation • I would definitely recommend this book because: • It is very suspenseful and keeps you wanting to read more to know if Sam Fisher will survive or what surprise might happen next • It is very action-packed and is great for any one who likes a lot of action • Although I would recommend this book it is a higher level book that may be hard to understand at sometimes and is also very long.
