Day Ten – A book you thought you wouldn’t like but ended up loving
The Hunt for Red October. My stepdad was (is) a fan of Tom Clancy’s, and seeing how much he’d read and enjoyed Clancy’s novels made me curious. I really didn’t think I’d like a spy/military story, but much to my surprise, I did. I then went on to read Patriot Games, The Cardinal of the Kremlin, and Clear and Present Danger. And then sometime later, I read Rainbow Six, and it was cliché and stilted enough that I decided not to back to Clancy’s writing for a while. Funny that the one I liked the least has spawned a franchise of games and ghost-written tie-ins.
