    Ahh, the great sequel to "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie". I wrote a fan fiction book called "If You Give a Mouse a Feral Cat". The illustrations are sick.

    Raven One- I've seen this book characterized as a technothriller but the plot isn't really fleshed out enough to really fill that description. Its a very straightforward plot regarding a Navy F-18 pilot, the in's and out's and who's and what's of a deployed carrier group and air wing, in which all gets tested following an incident in the Persian Gulf. The technical specifics, tactics and jargon are very detailed and the author expects you to keep up. If you are a fighter, navy or military geek, this is a good but simple book. If not, there isn't enough elsewhere to make this worth your while. I enjoyed it.

    Added Shogun to an order to get free shipping. I bailed on another of Clavell's epics and I wasn't impressed with the televised miniseries that my mother made the family watch when I was a wee lad so I didn't have high expectations. Pleasantly surprised though. He certainly is a researching fool. I'm over half way through and I'm certain I'll finish it within a couple of weeks (still several hundred pages to go). Sometimes taking a chance on a book works out well.
