The #1 New York Times bestseller that launched the phenomenal career of Tom Clancy—a gripping military thriller that introduced the world to his unforgettable hero, Jack Ryan—nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read.

Somewhere under the freezing Atlantic, a Soviet sub commander has just made a fateful decision. The Red October is heading west. The Americans want her. The Russians want her back. The chase for the highly advanced nuclear submarine is on—and there’s only one man who can find her...

Brilliant CIA analyst Jack Ryan has little interest in fieldwork, but when covert photographs of Red October land on his desk, Ryan soon finds himself in the middle of a high-stakes game of hide-and-seek played by two world powers—a game that could end in all-out war.

I've watched the movie Hunt for Red October three or four times. Seldom do I watch a movie more than once; the movie has to be real good! After listening to the audio book, I rate the book better than the movie especially the ending. The movie would need to be ten hours long if it included the detailed accounting of the Hunt for Red October. Tom Clancy was a brilliant story teller and this book is proof of it. I give the book five stars!

Loved the book. The audio is a bit hard to follow but it's not a lack of effort on the narrator; there is just so much happening and going on.

I was so so pleased when Tom Clancys The Hunt for Red October made PBS Great American Read. I have watched this movie 25 times I own both Special Directors Cut on Dvd and Blu Ray versions. Something draws me in and I am glued.

What a joy to listen to. The only thing that could make this better is more voice actors to minimize confusion in busy scenes. I'm glad I didn't go through the book before seeing the movie. If I did, I would probably be like most that are critical of the condensation to fit into a movie time frame and not enjoy the movie. Fortunately, I can enjoy both.

Awesome! Riveting. On the edge of your seat throughout. !!!! I plan to watch the movie next but based on previous reviews I'm so glad I listened to the book first.
