Marko RamiusHey guys, what is your opinion of Marko Ramius and the techniques used my Clancey?
Clancy's strength has always been he's a military buff, so he exhaustively researches his novels so they are militarily accurate, and then works those details into his stories.
As far as Ramius goes, it reflects the continual Cold War search for high level defectors. The story has limitations - it makes us look awesome and the Russians look dumb, and as far as the movie version, I can't get past Sean Connery's accent to believe he's a Russian.
Maybe you could be more specific about what techniques you mean...
As far as Ramius goes, he's my favorite character in the novel. I just think he's really brave for daring to take the submarine and defect. I like how he keeps his cool through all the tension that happens as he takes the sub acrosss the North Atlantic.
C'mon, Brettd, he's Lithuanian. Everyone knows they have accents like Scottish people LOL
Sean Connery was a wonderful actor for the movie version. The text highlighted so much military knowledge on the part of the author, that it seemed so realistic. Music in movies helps create tension. while description helps tension in texts.
lol thanks for the response guys
