"I remember watching this movie as a young teen and always thought I would one day get around to reading it. 30 years later, I’m finally diving into this mega series. <br/><br/>This was written in the late 80s when the technology scene was only getting started. Which requires sooo many more details into the scenes as these Sailers did everything manually and by gut instinct. <br/><br/>I would recommend listening to the audiobook, because Scott Brick is amazing and makes you feel like you are on that submarine."
"The book and the movie are both good. Read the book first!"
