Glasnost has failed, Russia is economically desperate, and Gorbachev's successor has launched the first strike in what may become World War III.

    "Defcon One"

    I wanted to enjoy this book, I even finished it though I couldn't explain why.

    The basic premise, that the Soviet Union elected to embark on a nuclear strike rather than concede the cold war I thought had some potential. Unfortunately a good idea isn't enough.

    This is really not good writing, actually the more you think about it, the worse you have to admit the writing is.

    The characters, well character is probably too strong a word, the dialog, best not mentioned, even the plot execution was pretty disjointed.

    Sometimes a gifted narrator can rescue some pretty average story telling, this is not one of those times. This narrator may work for some pretty specific books but here, he was as bad as the book and at least in this case, two negatives most definitely didn't make a positive.

    If you do find yourself part way through the book and are hoping it gets better, um, it doesn't.

    I had always thought I could happily read some pretty trashy ridiculous light books, it seems I have limits.
