Clancy's latest about cyber warfare. Scary stuff. Not up to his best, maybe his co-writer was the problem. Although I don't agree with his point of view he could be said to be a realist.

I can't believe I've read every single thing by him. I guess I have more time on my hands than I should.

yeah

one thing about Tom Clancy, he doesn't shortchange you on the page count! And he keeps you turning them, too.

Debt of Honor

Tom Clancy writes great cloak and dagger spy thrillers. This one is 990 pages long and is in small print. Jack Ryan (Sr) is with the CIA and about to get involved with some unknown clandestine activity on a small island in the south Pacific.
Meanwhile, in the desert, field agent tough guys, Chavez and Clark, are chasing a Somali warlord.
I hope to have it read by December....

Tom Wolfe's Back To Blood

There is no one who does satire of the American culture like Wolfe. This one is about Miami. He has done it so much he is close to becoming tedious. But if you've never read anything else by him except for "The Electric Kool-Aid..." then he is always worth another read.

I'm almost finished reading...

...The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson. It's a book about the great migration of African Americans from the Jim Crow south in the middle part of last century.
My last 6 books have all been non-fiction, 187 Things You Should Know about the War of 1812 by Donald Hickey, No Easy Day by Mark Owen, Smoke Signals: A Social History of Marijuana - Medical, Recreational and Scientific by Martin Lee (very enlightening), 20 West by Mac Nelson and SEAL Target Geronimo: The Inside Story of the Mission to Kill Osama bin Laden by Chuck Pfarrer.
