An unbelievable debut novel, this Clancy masterpiece--with its authenticity and fast-paced story--got the author's career as a novelist off to a rousing start. Mesmerizing! ( )

I did not quite believe that I would enjoy a book about submarines, but I enjoyed the film and thought I would give the book a try. It took me by surprise, I really enjoyed the story and the technical details were not such that they detracted from the enjoyment of the story. Now I want to watch the film again. ( )

O ano é 1984. O alto comando soviético acredita na possibilidade de deserção quando o capitão Markus Ramius, o comandante do Outubro Vermelho, o mais moderno submarino russo, desobedece ordens superiores e navega em direção à América. Outros submarinos soviéticos recebem ordem de afundar o Outubro Vermelho e os americanos decidem fazer o mesmo, temendo que seu território esteja ameaçado. Até que Jack Ryan, um agente da CIA que admira Markus Ramius, tenta impedir este ataque ao submarino.

Very cleverly written and one of the few books i re-read several times as its perfect. ( )

This is a gripping military thriller that began Tom Clancy's career and one of his first books with the Jack Ryan character. A top-secret Russian submarine has gone missing and they want her back. The Americans also want her. Technically realistic with a great deal of description this book takes you through a thrilling cat and mouse chase. ( )
