Dark Waters product reviews

One of the most closely guarded secrets of the Cold War is revealed in this book. The fast-paced adventure narrative follows the creation, construction and clandestine Cold War operations of the smallest nuclear-powered sub in the US Navy, a one-of-a-kind ship so secret that it wasn't even given a name. It is a true story of covert operations, imminent danger, personal bravery, technological wonder and historic discovery in a deep underwater environment never before patrolled by mankind.

Lee Vyborny developed and served on the NR-1 and is uniquely qualified to write about the smallest Cold War warrior of them all, whose very existence was denied for years and whose missions have never been discussed, and the rich and varied characters associated with her.

Well one things for sure, the Yanks sure know how to keep a secret! I'm a bit of a military buff, but I wasn't even aware that this thing existed, but thanks to the end of the cold war, information about this stuff is finally coming out, and certainly makes for an interesting read.

This is a well written book detailing what could be considered a very boring subject. If your not into military history in any way, it might seem a little dull, but the information contained inside is really quite amazing.

Reading about all the stuff this little ship and it's crew did was very interesting and did make me want to read further into this book just to see what else they got up to.

All in all a good book for all the military history buffs out there.

Product image for Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of PilgrimageTsukuru Tazaki had four best friends at school. By chance all of their names contained a colour. The two boys were called Akamatsu, meaning 'red pine', and Oumi, 'blue sea', while the girls' names were Shirane, 'white root', and Kurono, 'black field'. Tazaki was the only last name with no colour in it.

One day Tsukuru Tazaki's friends announced that they didn't want to see him, or ... more...
