Tom Clancy, Red Storm Rising
Ok ok this is probably bad to admit, but dang, I'm really liking Red Storm Rising. I don't believe I've ever read a Tom Clancy book before. When he tries to inject, y'know, actual human feelings into things, it's kind of facepalmy, but...well...actually that isn't even true. He seems pretty good at representing anguish associated with combat deaths...but as for these two characters who fall in love...uh...pretty cringey, actually.
