Read in April, 2009

This book is pretty awful. Tom Clancy gave it a good review and I love Tom Clancy, but this was a waste of time. Two significant men in my life are both total military/aircraft nuts. I thought plowing through it would give me something to talk to them about. Riiightttt! I talked about how awful the book is. Three things made it bad. 1) The main character is a James Bond 007 type that has women dropping their panties for him everywhere he goes. His call-sign is "Don Juan." 2) The lead female character comes across like a sappy teenager instead of the professional she is supposed to be. 3) Every other word is an acronym-not just the common ones like CIA-all kinds of alphabet soup. Here's an acronym for ya Don Juan, STD. That's what happens in the real world to people who act like you. Did I mention that I didn't like this book?
