Listening to good books from around the world, in the comfort of home....
Lots of stories between this stand alone book. Stay alert...lots of characters with multiple sub plots, there is something in this book for most readers. Soviet Union vs the free world ala NATO with lots of the USA war machine. Well worth the credit and the listen.
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
Tom Clancy and I have a lot in common I always wanted to serve butt i was physically unable and if this is the only let him take it into my service that I was never able to get into
If you know Clancy or Bond, you know this book and don't need a review. If you don't know either, then what the he'll are you doing here reading this? Go get Hunt for Red October and start down the path
The narrator could have benefited by reading the book beforehand, or maybe just deliver a little better....but he does a great job none the less and it's a great story.
