Default Re: What are you reading?

I found "Executive Orders" by Tom Clancy kicking around my closet. It's a book with a lot of potential thus far but for f*ck's sake, Clancy's at his best when he doesn't use the first 200 pages as exposition. NOBODY wants to read that much introductory material. I can only read it in small doses because despite the fact that's it's interesting as hell, the book just doesn't flow whatsoever. I loved "Red October," "Red Storm Rising," etc., but this book is killing me now. I want to know what happens next but I don't want to wade through 40 pages of fluff to find it.
