I'm not dead...yet.

Tom Clancy sucks: official

Look, OK, when some things completely change in nature from one chapter to the next, I can take it.

When assumptions are made about countries based on nothing but the vaguest preconceptions (see: Russians drinking vodka all day), I can just about tolerate it.

But a sentence like "He paid her well, in euros or d-marks" is just insulting to the reader's intelligence. Especially since this particular edition was printed in Britain, ostensibly for European consumption.

That's mere bagatelle compared to that Dan fellah.

If there was a prize for cramming the most foreign language words into a short English sentence then the one above could be in the running.
