Excerpts from the only unflattering review of the 10 at time of this posting:

SubGuru former submariner , (not me) wrote:
If you approach this book as a techno-thriller, it's at least as good as the latest submarine fiction from DiMercurio, for example.

...I think it's much more likely that K-129 was lost after an explosion in one of the missile tubes during a routine patrol, much like what happened to the Yankee-class sub K-219 in October 1986 off of Bermuda. (Unless, of course, you believe the 'Hostile Waters' conspiracy theory that K-219 sank after colliding with an American sub -- If you believe that, then you must also believe that a U.S. sub torpedoed the Russian submarine Kursk.)

Go ahead and read this book, but don't believe everything you read.

Molten Eagle intends to read this book as soon as possible.
