Read from June 01 to 20, 2012

This will be the last Clancy book I read. His writing has gotten sloppy, and his personal politics have taken over his story lines. I'd like to think he was a better writer than this back in his "Hunt for Red October" and "Cardinal of the Kremlin" days - and that my love for his writing wasn't purely a lack of maturity on my part.

Bear & Dragon has all of the granular over-detailed descriptions of every little working part of every military piece of hardware one would expect, with a completely obvious plot. Oooh, and some racism thrown in too. He really seems to hate the Chinese. And women. Clancy doesn't like women.

Like I said, last Clancy I'll ever read. Which is refreshing to *know* with such certainty.
