Description de l'ouvrage

1 mars 2000

The H.M.S. Unseen is one of the most efficient, lethal submarines ever built. But suddenly, on a training mission off the English coast, it vanishes, baffling military intelligence on both sides of the Atlantic, including National Security Adviser Admiral Arnold Morgan. A missing weapon is dangerous enough. But then the unthinkable begins to happen....Planes begin blowing up across the skies.

Searching for answers, Morgan is convinced that only one man can be behind all these devastating events: his archenemy, the world's most cunning--yet reportedly dead--terrorist spy. Determined to stop his old nemesis, Morgan must use all his wits to find a madman armed with a powerful sub hidden somewhere in a million square miles of ocean. What Morgan doesn't know, however, is that the fanatical terrorist has a plan of his own, one that will bring these two intense warriors face-to-face--and only one will come out alive in one of the most chilling spy stories of the year.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Good beginning, terrible end... 10 juin 1999
Par Jean-Marc Bonard (jean-marc.bonard@epfl.ch) - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I loved Robinson's two previous books, and liked that one... until page 200. Then the story grinds to a halt and proceeds at snail's pace to a very disappointing end. I read the second half of the book by skipping 9 pages out of 10 and didn't miss anything important. There are already too many bestselling authors (Cornwell, Clancy, Follet to cite a few) that are currently writing books way below the standards of their beginnings... I just hope that Robinson didn't join the lot. I guess I also just got sick of buckshot in Admiral Morgan's coffee and of his racist habit of calling muslims "towelheads"... also Robinson seems to have a love for series (sinking 11 Kilos in the previous opus and shooting three airliners in this one) that doesn't help with the predictability of his plots. A good editor could have (should have) taken care of that.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Ending Weak 21 décembre 1999
Par John P. Rooney - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Cassette
This is for the recording. The action in Patrick Robinson's "H.M.S. Unseen" moves at quite a pace. Robinson introduces techncial issues rapidly and efficiently to show how a submarine could shoot down airliners (including one with the Vice President of the United States). The motivation of Commnader Benjamin Adnam is understandable, but the author does not make a good case for Adnam's conversion into a distressed penitent ...attempting to make admends for all his crimes against humanity. The characterization of the American Admirals suffers in the recorded version. I listened to David McCallum (of "Man From Uncle" fame) on my daily drive. McCallum failed to convert his educated British accent into a reasonable facsimile of an American twang. Further, the author puts too many "F---this" and "holy sh--" and "Jesus H. Christ" into the admiral's dialogue. I found it offensive. American admirals have long since passed the stage of bumbling colonials, unable to make a coherent statement under stressful situations ---- especially admirals who are supposed to be giving daily briefings to the U.S. President. (By the way,"stewardess" is out and "flight attendant" is correct.) Finally, the ending is weak. It is difficult, based upon the characterization of Muslim Commander Adnam, to believe that he would end it all that way.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Patrick Robinson's best so far, but spare us the menus! 22 janvier 2000
Par Mr N Forbes-warren - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
This book starts off brilliantly. Ben Adnam, the terrorist bad guy in PR's NIMITZ CLASS, is betrayed by his home country of Iraq when Saddam orders him assassinated. So he journeys to Iran, in a well-researched voyage. Zap forward to 2005 and Adname had infiltrated the Iranian Navy. With aid of the Russians, he purchases a surface-to-air missile system, and hijacks the British Royal Navy's most modern diesel sub, HMS Unseen. With this feasible capability, he knocks three high profile flights from the skies, including Concorde! As Adnam hides, weaves and ducks, and ends up in Scotland, it is up to Admiral Arnold Morgan, a foul-mouthedly entertaining character, to search him out! And the ending, and Adnam's evasions of the authorities in a journey across Scotland, Britain and Ireland is surprising. Action comes thick and fast, the locations are well-researched, particularly the UK scenes, having been to Scotland many times it was easy to relate to them. However, I have one criticism to make. Did we really need to know in exact detail what every character had to eat? Or what movie they loved? It did interfere with the fast narrative, but HMS Unseen still gets a five star rating for a great story(which could come true one day) and an entertaining set of characters. Well done Pat!

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Boring as watching grass grow 12 mars 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I don't know why anyone with an IQ above 43 would read this piece of junk masquerading as a real book. Tom Clancy nothing, this joker sounds like Dr. Seuss in comparison. I don't know what the two morons that wrote 5-star reviews were thinking, if they were thinking at all, but this book is one of the all-time worst excuses for fiction I have ever seen. I would love this book if I could remove 3/4 of my brain while reading it so as not to be in danger of retching violently at the plethora of gross absurdities found therein. I was assured that this book was excellent, but it took no more than the first 4 chapters to completely disabuse me of that notion. Inane, childish, moronic, dull, you name your adjective, it fits here. In summary, my opinion of this book can be summed up in one word (a highly technical term that is full of deep meaning): UGH.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Not equal to his first two books...a MAJOR disappointment 23 mai 1999
Par James A. Davidson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Patrick Robinson's first book, NIMITZ CLASS, was an exciting and page-turning read about an event that could all too easily happen in today's world. His second book, KILO CLASS, was equally engrossing with a good amount of suspense, though perhaps stretching reality a bit.

It was, therefore, with great expectation that I picked up H.M.S. UNSEEN. It has a great plot line: revenge on more than one front, a missing submarine, covert fitting with a top-flight anti-aircraft missle system, and airliners dropping out of the sky over the Atlantic. It's at that point, however, that the story turns into a mind-numbing decscription of nearly every meal consumed and the accompanying wine list. Finally, in the last few pages, the author gets back to the story line. But, by then you are so dulled by the lack of progress the ending is largely an afterthought and unsatisfying.

I was also distracted by the author's misidentification of some of the equipment in the book, such as referring to a KC-135 as a military version of a DC-10 (it should be 707 or 720). For someone writing "techno-thrillers", this is a research oversight.

I was quite disappointed with the book. I hope Robinson will get back to the type of story he exhibited success with in his first two books.

In short, skip this book and hope for the best with his next effort.
