Description

When Muslim fundamentalists blow up a key Soviet oil complex, making an already critical oil shortage calamitous, the Russians figure they are going to have to take things into their own hands. They plan to seize the Persian Gulf, and more ambitiously, to neutralize NATO. Thus begins Red Storm, an audacious gamble that uses diplomatic maneuver to cloak a crash military build-up. When Soviet tanks begin to roll, the West is caught off guard. What looks like a thrust turns into an all-out shooting war, possibly the climactic battle for control of the globe.

Good Story, Good Narrative, Good Book!

This book is about a time period that has always fascinated me, as are a few of the Tom Clancy books. The tensions between the United States and the USSR have made for quite a few good stories and this one is no different.

The events leading up to the hostilities between NATO and the USSR are described in a completely believable manner and set the stage for an overall good book. I was especially entertained by the tension that Mr. Clancy was able to convey during the many submarine battles that seem to make up a good portion of the story. I listen to my audiobooks in the car during the ride to and from work and several times didn't want to leave the car once I arrived due to these battles!

The ground war was told more through the eyes of a few people, generals and their staffs mainly, which is a stark contrast to the detail of the previously mentioned sub battles. But the details that were given provided enough incite to the strategies used that you still got a pretty good picture of how the war was being fought.

Also, I have to say, that on numerous occasions I ran for the computer as soon as I got home to look up the equipment, ships, subs, jets..., etc that were being described and had a blast seeing if my expectations met reality. Often times they did, sometimes they didn't...

The only part that left me puzzled was a rather weak, sparse love interest that seemed totally out of place. But since it wasn't touched on enough to make an interesting side story, it wasn't too much of a distraction either.

Mr. Prichard's narration was more than adequate. I found the reader very entertaining and he set an excellent tone for this type of story.

Although this book is dated, it's an overall good read / listen, I highly recommend it.

A stand alone master piece

I'm not sure how long ago it was that I first read this book, but I loved it. Since then I've reread it numerous times and have thoroughly enjoyed it each and every time. When I saw that Audible had added Red Storm Rising as an unabridged selection I was delighted.
When I listened to this selection I once again enjoyed an excellent story told with skill. Some people might not care for the detail that Tom Clancy goes into but as far as I'm concerned the more detail the better.
More unabridged Clancy please.

A must read

What did you love best about Red Storm Rising?

Did anyone find themselves cheering for the Russians. This was by far one of the best Tom Clancy novels I have ever read. And I have been catching up on the Jack Ryan universe. The writing was amazing and flowed as if this story really happened. You won't be disappointed.

Classic! Love the naval combat chapters!!

One of the very first "adult" books that I read when I was in my late teens (25 years ago). Listened to it this past week and was really happy to rediscover my old friend. I particularly like the naval combat chapters. You can really feel the tension of the sailors. Prichard is great with his performance. I'm a big fan of his (see all of Rex Stout's Nero Wolf mysteries).

Great book. So so narrating performance

This was my first "non-school" book I read in 1990 or so. I was then hooked on Tom Clancy books. Anyway this book is also the one book which i have re-read the most times over the years I thought the audiobook would be just as awesome experience to listen to as I used to get from reading it. Unfortunately the reader is very dull. He barely changes his voice for different characters. Hardly adds enthusiasm to parts that call for it. If it wasn't that I just love this book, story, and amount of detail given regarding 1980s Cold War era warfare, I would have been bored by the reader

Classic

This is one of Clancy's best. A classic book about modern warfare and battle tactics. Prichard does a great job. Well worth the 27 hour investment.

Great story

If you could sum up Red Storm Rising in three words, what would they be?

Thrilling, realistic, taught

What was one of the most memorable moments of Red Storm Rising?

The beginning of the story.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Michael Prichard?

Almost anyone. Prichard, seems to talk like a computer–monotone. His voice is grating. I just got into audiobooks, but this has been true of the two I've listened to. (So, don't take what I say as true.)

Excellent!!

I don't care that it's dated and things have changed. It is a great book. I read the book when it came out as a much younger person, and for a few years after I would retread it every so often. Then put it away, as things completely changed. After a decade or more I saw it in audible, and took a chance on the credit. I truly enjoyed it, way more than I expected. The audio version, coupled with the time and space distance, really made me appreciate what a tour de force this book was. I don't know of another book that told a full modern war story this completely, in this much detail, and so well. I found myself driving around for an extra hour just so I could keep listening to the next chapter. Yes, it is dated. But you will not get a better explanation of what easily could have been. When this book came out none of it was farfetched. In fact it was almost too accurate, based on my recollection. But aside from all that the story telling is excellent, the pace perfect, the story compelling, and the audio performance superb. I was never a Tom Clancy fan but after finishing the book this time I was really impressed with his story telling abilities. In this book, he did everything right. I highly recommend it.

Immer noch aktuell

Auch wenn das Buch bereits im kalten Krieg verfasst wurde, so ist die Handlung als solche doch immer noch topaktuell.
Fachlich ist das Buch sehr interessant, auch wenn mittlerweile sicherlich das eine oder andere System nicht mehr mit von der Partie ist und sich die Kriegsführung heutzutage nicht mehr an der großen Panzerschlacht in der norddeutschen Tiefebene orientiert.
Die unterschiedlichen Handlungsstränge, die komplett unabhängig voneinander agieren vermitteln einen guten Überblick über eine komplexe Gesamtlage und ihre Entwicklung, ohne allerdings zu viel vorwegzunehmen.

Absolut weiter zu empfehlen.

Bester Cold-War Thriller

Einfach der beste Thriller, der in den letzten Jahres des kalten Krieges spielt. Sehr glaubwürdige und realistische Darstellung eines konventionellen Krieges zwischen der NATO und des Warschauer Pakts.

Die Handlung schliesst von Norwegen bis Deutschland den ganzen geographischen Raum des Konfliktes ein. Trotz der vielen Handlungsstränge und die unzähligen Beschreibungen der Kämpfe in der Luft, unter/über dem Wasser und in Westdeutschland, verliert man nicht den Überblick.

Für mich ist dies das Meisterwerk von Tom Clancy. Sehr schade, dass dieser vor kurzem mit 66 Jahren viel zu früh verstorben ist.

Clancys Tiefpunkt

Ich schicke voraus, dass ich wirklich ein Fan von Tom Clancy bin. Die Kombination von Weltgeschichte, Politik und persönlichen Schicksalen, die darin verwoben sind, machen diese Bücher spannend auf hohem Niveau.

Red Storm Rising ist da eine unrühmliche Ausnahme. Ausgehend von dem Szenario eines 3. Weltkrieges, begonnen von einem Russland mit Ölversorgungsproblemen, entwickelt sich diese Geschichte nur sehr mühsam. Die hier präsentieretn Charaktäre sind maximal zweidiensional und vorhersagbar in Dialog und Handlungen.

Clancys wichtigster Radgeber für dieses schwache Buch scheint der umfangreichste Waffen- und Kriegsgerätekatalog aller Zeiten gewesen zu sein - eine Ausgabe aus den 1980er Jahren. Denn das ist die Zeit, in der diese Geschichte angesiedelt wurde. Clancy springt zwischen den Schauplätzen, Island, Deutschland, Russland und den USA in verschiedenen Waffengattungen, Helden und Schlachten hin und her. Das mehr oder weniger happy end, kommt so konstruiert und plötzlich, dass ich mich gefragt habe, wozu die Stunden des Hörens vorher notwendig waren. Nicht empfehlenswert.
