So the story is placed in the 80s during the last phase of the so called cold war. I can easy remember that time and the feeling, language and the whole setup sounds very familiar. Of course many saw the film with Sean Connery which was honestly not too bad, but compared with the book the film lacks a lot of valuable details and also the story goes a little different, I would say not bound on the obvious time and detail constraint which a film of about 120 min. obviously have to follow.
A clear recommendation..

Ein klassischer Kalter-Kriegs-Thriller und nach meiner Meinung immer noch Clancys bestes Buch.

Man sollte keine philosophischen Diskussionen über Mutual Assured Destruction erwarten. Das Buch liefert actionreiche, kurzweilige Unterhaltung.

Wer den Film mag sei das Buch wärmstens empfohlen.
Die deutsche Version habe ich zwar nie gelesen, in Originalsprache ist dieses Buch jedenfalls klasse.

Ich habe diesen Roman bestellt, weil ich den Film mit Sean Connery kannte und Tom Clancy im Oktober dieses Jahres (2013) gestorben ist. Deshalb: E i n Clancy muss im Buchregal stehen - keine Frage.

If you enjoyed the film then this is a must read for all Tom Clancy fans. It explains so much more in detail than the film does.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it was well written,intriguing, and was impossible to put down. Before I go on about howgood this book was I have to say a couple things. First, I read this book only becasue I was told that the movie was good. Second, normally I do NOT like action books such as this. I prefer the historical fiction or real life fiction, not action. However, this book was fantastic. It was impossible to put down, the characters were real, and the plot was original. I could go on and on about how wonderful this book was, but I am sure some other people have already done that. Therefore, I am going to give you what I believe is an even stronger reccomendation. After reading this book I thought, maybe action books aren't so bad after all and decided to read some of his other books (Red Storm Rising, Cardinal of Kremlin, Sum of All Fears, and some by other authors) and they were not nearly as good. Now, I did read them, and couldn't put them down (especially Red Storm Rising) until I was finished. However, they just weren't as good. I finished them becasue they were suspenseful and I wanted to know what happened. But after I was done the other books were no where near as good as Hunt for Red October. So after reading other suspense-action books I have made a conclusion, not so different to what I thought beforehand, action-suspense books are not that while written and are generally bad books, with the exception of Hunt for Red October which is fabulous, and should be read by everybody, whether you are a fan of action or not. I personnaly have gone back to reading my real life fiction and are enjoying it much more. To end this long review I have one last thing to say, read Hunt for Red October, it is a FANTASTIC BOOK that should be read by all, and I HIGHLY RECCOMEND IT!

Despite the many allegations that this book is unfair to the Soviets, portraying them as crude, belligerent, and even downright evil, I have but one thing to say: well, duh. That's pretty much communism in a nutshell, and Clancy just lets the facts speak for themselves. He's really quite fair in presenting both sides. The reader learns about both sides through the characters, not the narrator. The Soviet characters praise their beloved homeland, while the American characters praise theirs. As Clancy points out, we Americans were not without fault. (I could argue this point a little better, but that would give away too much of the plot.) Point is, it just so happens that we Americans surpassed them in many respects. But before you get to feeling all sorry for the poor widdle Commies, keep in mind that these are the people whose solution to the mutual devastation of nuclear war was their "first-strike capability," whereby the Soviets would use their nuclear arsenal to obliterate the United States, leaving us too crippled to launch a counterattack. Now that's a friendly bunch, eh? Well, I'd love to finish bashing communism, but this is a book review, and they only let me have 1000 words anyway. To sum up, this book is a fabulous read for both sides of the Commie/Yankee Imperialist Pig argument. The plot's fast-paced and well developed, the characters are realistic, and it's the most interesting way to learn about the Cold War and its combatants. He teaches a little Russian, some navy acronyms (which might as well be in Russian), and everything you need to know about a sub. By the way, since I'm taking the Yankee Imperialist Pig side of this issue, I would like to point out that pigs are the only barnyard animals noted for both their intelligence and keen sense of smell.

1984 it isn't. Jack Ryan, meet Marko Ramius. With The Hunt for Red October, Tom Clancy launched a new literary genre, the technothriller. This, Tom Clancy's first novel, introduces Jack Ryan and his family. They don't appear until the second day. On the first day, Captain First Rank, (Commander), in our navy, Marko Ramius, the half- Russian, half-Lithuanian commander of the Soviet missile boat Red October, commits an act of baratry by hijacking his submarine and in killing his zampolit, Captain Second Rank, (Lieutenant Commander),Ivan Putin; he makes it look like an accident by splashing tea around his body. The Soviet and U.S. navies begin a search for the submarine which was supposed to be at its station and participating in war games. One of Ramius students fires a torpedo at the Red October as the Americans, led by Jack Ryan, Admiral James Greer, Bartolomeo Mancuso, and Sonarman Jones, try to bring Ramius in with the help of the British. A Soviet sub breaks up and sinks when its nuclear reactor explodes, exposing the rest of the crew to a deadly dose of radiation. The sole survivor, the cook, is rescued and operated on. In the final, climactic scene, Ryan and the Red October's cook, a GRU agent, fight it out in like a couple of gunslingers in the Old West at High Noon, in the Red October's missile bay. The GRU agent's killed and Ryan receives a flesh wound. On the flight back to London, he falls asleep on a plane for the first time. Blair Colquhoun @cybertours.com
