Publisher's Summary

The Challenger is the weapon of the future, a ceramic-hulled nuclear submarine with the most advanced electronics ever created. Acting captain Jeffrey Fuller's mission is to rescue the fast attack sub Texas, now lying on the bottom of the Atlantic. But a newly resurrected and fanatically militaristic Germany knows where the Texas is, too, and it knows the Challenger is coming. It is the Challenger the Germans want, dispatching their own high-tech supersub to destroy her.

Just didn't cut it!

Hard as I tried, I just could not really get involved in this book. It may have been the narration, which I felt was choppy, lacking in emotion and style. It may have been the lack of a consistent plot, or lack of development and attachment to characters. Whatever it was, I just could not lose myself in the story, One should not have to work to stay involved.

Steven Segal would star in the film

It's hard to review this book because I don't want to trash it. But it's true that this is a "B" story at best. Lots of bang and slash, but not a lot of story behind it. Still, it was entertaining in a mindless kind of way.
In the end, I didn't care about any of the characters, so I wasn't 'involved' in the story and every now and then I would catch myself heckling it, but that said, it was mindless entertainment, so it wasn't so bad.
What's worse, an action packed story that isn't trying to take itself seriously, or a truely badly written plot trying to pass itself off as quality? Thunder in the deep isn't trying to preach to you or take itself seriously. It's kind of like a Bond film without the exotic women.
Listen, enjoy, just don't expect too much from it.
