This review is from: Executive Orders (Paperback)
I liked Clancy's early stuff, but this, like Debt of Honor is a mind numbing slog to get through. There is a good story in there (even more so given recent (09/2001) events), it's a pity Clancy feels the need at times to turn it into US Politics and International Relations 101! Also it's nice to have a twist to get you to read the story; the story of Aref Raman is signposted so clearly by the middle of the book why should I bother to read the rest? The other plotlines are basically good but I get the impression that Clancy wrote this book (and a few others) with a ruler nearby - "not 3 inches thick yet need some more prose"
