Yes - Great story. Like most Clancy books there were some technical details, but not so many that you get lost in the weeds. In my opinion it is definitely one of the best of the Clancy books.
Definite page turner (if there were pages.) Once Clancy gets the background in place and the actions begins you are left anticipating what is going to happen next. You do not have to go too far into the book for the action of the story to get under way in full swing.
Prichard did a good job narrating. I have never narrated a book, but I would imagine this would have been one of the tougher books to narrate. I think it would have been challenging due to the large number of characters involved in the story as well as the various nationalities.
The story made me want to.
The story may seem dated to some due the changing political scene since it was written. I was in the US military at the height of the Cold War and so everything in the story resonated with me and real and plausible. However, with the Russian incursion into the Crimea that has been the new lately, the story may not be a dated as one would have once thought.
I enjoy counter-terrorism, westerns, historical fiction, detective mysteries, and old school comedy like "A Christmas Story".
This might be my favorite Clancy audio book. The plot was exciting and complex. Air, submarine, battleship/carrier, tank, infantry battles interwoven with info about satellite and cruise missile technology delivers an exciting war novel between superpowers and their allies. The premise that a war could be fought over something the average citizen may not imagine creates nail biting angst. After hours of thrills the story ends with a satisfying finale.
I hope you enjoy as much as I did. This is a totally enjoyable war thriller.
the story line keeps you going through out the whole book
i would not compare red storm rising to any book there is no comparsin
a scence of being there
could not turn off until finished
best book i have ever read listened to
Lots and lots of sub battles and naval battles and other battles. With no real attachment to any characters.
Fierce fighting, politics, romance and then some. Battle rages in Germany between East and West, submarines and jets clash all over the world and everything hangs in the balance.
if you like military fiction or even non-fiction this is for you. The battle scenes are well described and epic, the naval battles feel like your there and the sense of loss is real. One of the best Clancy books out there.
out of all of the t Clancy books that I have listened to, this was the least favorite.
it seemed very choppy and was not fluid at all, it's like reading or listening to someone reading a manual not a book
I've listened to two of his audio books and he can pause a little too much for me. I just speed up playback to 1.05 or 1.1x to help out a little. favorite book of Tom clancy. Have hard back and two paperback versions. (one was a little too used)
