it was ok
Read in July, 2009

Can you say, "suspension of disbelief?" Could terrorists build a network of training camps in the rain forests of South America over several years and remain virtually undetected? OK. Super heroes need super villains.

What really bugged me though was getting little details wrong -- inconsistent chronology, characters playing gin rummy but the description of the hands don't make sense, and writing that the Washington bible is used for every inauguration. I once failed a history test (open book!) in high school (yes, I am ashamed) but even I know that's not right.

Eric_W Not to mention 12 horses galloping miles closely bunched together with 12 headless riders. I mean really. Suspension of belief? Mine went right out the window.
