The story waw great as all clancy novels are but the narration was appaulling. Thae narrator was unable to change his voice for the different characters and they all merge into one. It was difficult to listen to. They need to redo it with someone who can really narrate an audio book.
What did you like best about The Hunt for Red October? What did you like least?
The story is solid, as always a good mix of factoids and human interest.
Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Lance C Fuller?
Scott Brick! A reader with great talent and finesse. He performs flawlessly in all accents.
Any additional comments?
I own hundreds of audio books between various libraries. The vast majority of them well performed. Some excellent, some less than optimum. This reading/performance however, is so bad it needs a review.This man has NO sense of timing; he randomly ignores punctuation, puts in stops where there are none and uses upspeak where no question mark exists. He lacks any form of expression, is unbearably boring to listen to and manages to kill even a Clancy book. I had waited for this one, now I wish I had never wasted my money on it. Terrible, terrible, terrible!Did nobody listen to this before putting it out for the paying customers?Shame on you Audible UK!

I have been waiting for a new complete and unabridged reading of the best Tom Clancy novel... I will have to go on waiting. The narrator has the same tone the entire way through and it is impossible to listen to. No sense of the drama or excitement enters his voice at all.

The entire Soviet Fleet could not stop Ballistic Submarine Red October, but the boring, monotonous narrative scuttled an epic Novel. Painful listening.
