  •  Re-read 'Red October' and 'Red Storm' over... (6+ / 0-)

    ....the summer.  Great novels that still set the bar for military/espionage/tech thrillers.

    After Jack Ryan became POTUS in the novels, I stopped reading him for many of the same reasons stated in the diary.....too pedantic, too RW political and too implausible.

    Tried to read 'The Dragon and the Bear' and quit halfway through.....characters were literally repeating themselves, dull pacing and card board (border line racist)  villains

    This space for rent -- Cheap!
