Transfer of Power

Transfer of Power - Vince Flynn This book was pretty good. I liked it a bit better than the usual Clancy novel, because the action began much sooner.

However, some places have poor writing and out-of-place informal styles. For example:

At that point, Rielly’s mood turned from brooding to self-loathing, and now she sat feeling not so hot about herself.

Feeling "not so hot"? Huh.

Also a bit jarring was the use of "awesome" outside someone's dialogue. Saying "it looked awesome" doesn't seem to fit.

Otherwise, besides those not so hot areas, this book was awesome.... :)
