This novel has a thrilling plot, is well paced and was able to keep me captivated until the end. The action throughout is believable and well written in a way which is both exciting and thrilling, keeping fans of the genre thoroughly hooked. The characters are believable to a degree but were let down by their dialogue which was unfortunately hard to believe at times. Many of the dialogue scene were hard to believe and this does detract somewhat from my enjoyment of the novel.
This novel is driven by the author's desire to present an intellectually believable, serious debate in novel form and the political issues contained within are discussed at length by the characters, giving someone with little experience/understanding of the conflict a really clear thought-provoking picture of the state of things. It also gives readers the chance to contemplate the events in the novel folding out in real life, which is an extremely scary thought.
For a debut this novel is extremely powerful, combining well written characters, in depth political discussion and a thrilling plot that holds it all together. It is unfortunately let down by the dialogue which is central to its success which is why I felt it was fair to give a rating of 3.4 stars.

No. Self-published, and I can see why. It simply isn't up to the standard required for publication. And, like most amateur writers, he can't do punctuation, which for me is enough to throw it away, which I did. It's a shame, because the premise looked promising.

Frankly this book just does not make the grade as a thriller and seemed to me to be a collection of conversations. I gave up trying to make sense of it and could not possibly recommend this book for anyone seeking a good read.

I was drawn to the title and bought the book because it is a very contemporary issue. Israel is surrounded by hostile Muslim nations who are all agreed on one thing and that is the destruction of God's chosen people Israel. Although I don't go along with the books description of Israel's destruction I liked the symbolism of the submarine as the Noah's Ark and the tightly drawn characters of the captain and crew a good take on contemporary Israeli society. I thought that Noah Beck used the characters very well to introduce the reader to both secular and spiritual arguments for and against nuclear retaliation despite the biblical revelation that Israel's enemies will be destroyed by God as they attack with other nations.
The subject was obviously well researched and contained many relevant facts.
An excellent apocalyptic thriller and one to make the reader think and, hopefully, pray for Israel.

Not so much a novel to lose yourself in for escape. I've read better literary works and characterisation is not the book's strong point. Point one, it sets a representation of various ethnic backgrounds and beliefs among the characters. Point two, it helped me appreciate the current middle east situation and while I was reading it, the west's nuclear agreement with IRAN was completed. I may be a geek but I followed the detailed submarine location references on Google Earth and got to know the map of that part of the world a lot better. I think this book should be conpulsory reading for general knowledge and political awareness.

A so - so read. Too much resemblance to Gene Hackmans film " Crimson Tide " . Got a bit boring at times. I felt there were too many switches backwards and forwards of crew members recalling past events in their lives and lots of philisophical arguements. Lots of talk but very little in the way of action. At the end after they launched their final missiles on Iran one was left hanging about what happened to the crew and the Dolphin. It just said " The End ". Hmmmmm !

What a waste of time. The first 50% of the book reviews the crews bio/cv's. The second 50% is given over to the crew debating the philosophy of a retaliatory strike. If you are looking for a techno-thriller, this isn't it. It was like a film you know is absolute rubbish but you have to watch to see what happens in the end. God forbid that nuclear subs have captains like this...SpongeBob has a stronger spine than this guy!

Enjoyed the story told through the lives of the crew. Characters are interesting and absorbing. Keeps you on your toes. Will it happen or won't it? Leaves you in a very thought provoking mood.

Probably more a man's book but the involvement with the characters makes it suitable for either sex. A very plausible scenario if a little frightening. Would recommend it.
