After reading Fifty Shades of Girl Smut, I think I need a manly book. The Hunt for Red October seems virile enough. Strong sweaty men...at sea...with not a woman in sight. Wait a sec! What am I getting in to? They better not start singing, "In the Navy" or "Y.M.C.A." And if there's even a single...

I read this when I was on the USS Eisenhower. It was so popular with the Squids that I think it replaced the BMR. The thing that really impressed everyone on the ship was how accurate Clancy was with both his research and his story-telling. There was never a "that's not how it happens" moment, so...

Writer’s style is not engaging or entertaining for me. He’s probably good for military technical buffs.
This guy is a popular best selling author. But not for me. I assume his fans are those who love to think and talk about military technical stuff - with a story to go along with it. The author is...

Yes, I may be fashionably late to this party, considering the threat of war between Soviet Russia -- which doesn't exist anymore -- and Imperialist America is a major theme of this novel.
But I figured this should be my first experience with Tom Clancy, and I do not regret my decision at all. Thi...

The very first in a ridiculously successful series of thrillers and not surprising, since it is an incredibly effective suspense story. Or at least I think it is. I haven't read the early Clancy books in many years and frankly, I'm very afraid to. I remember the bloated cheap hardback editions (t...

Everyone always goes on about how meticulous Tom Clancy's background research is, but there was a moment in this book which made me wonder. They're going to run a big program on a military computer, and (being gamblin' military men) they decide to bet on how long it will take to complete. One of...

4.0 stars. My first Tom Clancy novel and the one that made me an instant fan of his work. Jack Ryan is a terrific character and the plot was very well done. Highly recommended for fans of political thrillers.

Uh. Bio sam između tri i četiri, no na kraju sam odlučio knjizi dati veću ocjenu. Razlog tome je taj što kada je dobra, onda je zbilja napeta i uzbudljiva, no u dobrom djelu nije takva (barem meni nije bila).
Ima više razloga za to, a jedan od glavnih je taj što je čitam danas, a ne u vrijeme kada...

Executive Summary: A pretty fun spy thriller that occasionally gets bogged down by too much military jargon.
Audio book: This is my first time listening to a book read by J. Charles. He's a pretty good reader. I initially felt like he read too fast, but I either got used to it, or he slowed down....
