  1.  The book that launched Tom Clancy 5 October, 2013 On
    After finishing the movie, I picked up the book the very next day. As with all book to reel conversion, the book is much better.

    In fact, I hadn't as yet read a book which had such detailed insight into submarines, the weaponry they used and very importantly, the part they play in making nations feel safe. The technology described is mind boggling, and the games that get played out at sea way below our noses is tense and thrilling.

    Ramius is THE character of this book, and also we get introduced to a certain Jack Ryan, one of my favorite series characters. I came away from this with a vast knowledge and thrilled to pieces. Pick this up if you want to read a tense and taut thriller.
