    Description

    What will World War III look like?

    Ghost Fleet is a gripping imagining of a war set in the not too distant future.

    Navy captains battle through a modern-day Pearl Harbor, fighter pilots duel with stealthy drones, teenage hackers fight in digital playgrounds, Silicon Valley billionaires mobilise for cyber war and a serial killer carries out her own vendetta.

    Ultimately, victory will depend on who can best blend the lessons of the past with the weapons of the future.

    "A wild book, a real page-turner." ( The Economist)
    "A novel that reads like science fiction but bristles with rich detail about how the next World War could be fought." ( Vice)

    One dimensional and illogical

    I had recently finished Tom Clancy's Red Storm Rising before going into this so I can't help but compare them. I really liked Red Storm and one of the things that suprised me in it was the fairly nuanced (at least in relation to my expectation) portrayal of both Soviet characters and Soviet politics. The scenario felt plausible and the antagonists felt for the most part fairly human with reasonable motivations.

    Not so in Ghost Fleet. The Chinese start the book with a genius master stroke against the US. Then they immediately lose half their IQ and in the rest of the story they are consistently portrayed as incredibly dumb, savage and full of hubris. It basically turns the book into a juvenile revenge fantasy against vaguely sketched bogeymen, with some technobabble taped to the side. Red Storm presents a fairly well researched premise while here it feels like they thought about the premise for five minutes just so they could get on with Admiral Colonel Biff Americason railgunning the dastardly Fu Manchu for page after page.

    It feels like listening to a bad novelisation of Homefront: The Revolution or something.

    Propaganda with endless said

    Amazing amount of propaganda, minimal understanding of modern technology, horrible style, I wonder if authors know any synonym for verb "say"

    Interessanter Techno-Thriller

    Ein glaubwürdiger Plot, der technologisch größtenteils akkurat und nachvollziehbar ist. Gut geschrieben, bis zum Schluss spannend.

    Great narration to a solid book

    A lot of podcasts centred around geopolitics, the military and defense had recommended this book. I decided to get it as an audio book, knowing to miss out on the footnotes with additional details and references.
    It was the better choice, because the narration is splendid.
    The story is solid as well, although sometimes the details take away from it. And, albeit having several female protagonists, it is obvious that the authors are men.
    I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in the aforementioned topics or will be in a position of power in the coming years.
