Review The hunt for Red October
The book held my attention for days. I read until midnight most days. I was a submariner during 1964. I got to see Vladivostok through a periscope. A great treat excel for the depth charges.

Haven't read the book but I saw the film which was apparently very good and the book was very acceptable which gave people a chance to read the book and check out the movie
We have lost one of our greatest authors! I will miss not seeing new books written by him. This book was his first, and one of his best considering how much he matured as an author through all the rest of his books.
I've read the print version when the book first came out and there seems to be two scenes missing from what I remember: the scene where red October goes through the trenches showing how they are able to navigate in tight spots and the scene at the end where the Russian diplomat mentions that they lost another sub ( the alpha that was rammed). Why were those cut out?

Tom Clancy has proven to the world that he is a Magnificent story teller in all senses. The names that are listed as my title are known throughout the gaming community and are mentioned in house old conversations daily. His stories grip you with a sense that is genuine in few stories and makes you want to read his books all the way through to the last page.

"Red October" brings a deep sense of urgency and mystery to a compelling story. Ramius and Ryan drive each side of the defection attempt toward its exciting and harrowing end.
