Either Clancy is cranking books out too fast or he's selling his name.
One chapter might as well be a cut and paste of the previous.
I've read two books now that were "co-authored" by Clancy and neither was worth a damn. I will never buy another one.
This book reads like a strategy guide for the CD game that apparently exists by the same name. Actually, I have read better strategy guides. It is BORING BORING BORING. Shame on the publishers for the packaging. They should be sued. Like one of the earlier reviews said: every chapter is a repetition of the same thing: Cheyenne detects sub; Cheyenne sinks sub; Cheyenne is never in any real danger. No tension. I actually fell asleep several times, I am about halfway through and wondering if I should bother finishing it.
If you have played submarine sims like Jane's excellent (but 5-year old) 688 there is perhaps some value to this book, but only if you're not very good at it. Otherwise, forget it. And Mr. Clancy, you have been downgraded from an "automatic buy" to "let's leaf through the first few pages before buying" for having lent your name to this effort.
SSN is not the typical Clancy fare but it certainly was a light and easy going read. Unfortunately like in real life on SSN's ther is little margin for errors or damage reports since you are either in top fighting condition in the sub or dead. Not too many subs are found limping into to port or like bombers after a mission making crash landings at home with thousands of bullet holes in the wings. Nope, subs are not forgiving .... there is generally only one landing when something goes wrong and usually it's like a few thou fathoms down ....
The action may be reptitive in the book because it deals with a hunter killer sub and thats what happens in the whole book ... it's hunter killer.
If you are looking for a Red october kind of book then don't buy, but if you are looking for a little boy Sunday afternoon with nothing to do kind os book, you'll enjoy it ....
It's like watching the Discover channel on nuke sub tactics .... I LOVED IT!
