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
The was the first book I've read from cover to cover. Actually I've read it twice now. Audio book makes the third time. it is by far the most complex book I've ever read. I hope that someday it's made in to a mini series but it would be very costly. anyway a very good book.
It ranks in the top 3 among the audiobooks I have listened to.
The attack on the Carrier Fleet was my favorite
I like his narration of the story, how he gets into portraying the characters.
Clancy was always the best. a better man for a better world. I wish I could've met the man before his passing. He will be missed. My tribute, I guess.
Tom Clancy reigned supreme as the king of military thrillers starting with The Hunt for Red October. This book got passed around my division on the USS Jouett. We would sit around and critic mistakes he made in the Russian order of battle for the Navy parts. Giving this a listen after so long was good. The story is exciting almost all the way through. It just seems the writing was as good as I remember. I still enjoyed it tremendously and would reccomend it to anyone looking for a good read.
