War And Peace

By Leo Tolstoy. This is going to be a hard book for me to get into and I'll probably read something alternatively, breaking my long streak of entertainment type fiction.

Threat Vector

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.
