Dopo il crollo dell'URSS, nessuna unità da guerra al mondo è più richiesta dei sottomarini d'attacco classe Kilo, un tempo simbolo della potenza della Marina sovietica e il cui vero punto di forza è essere silenziosi come una tomba. Oggi i russi li vendono a chiunque abbia la possibilità di comprarli? costano 300 milioni di dollari l'uno. E mentre nessuno si è preoccupato quando li hanno acquistati la Polonia, la Romania, o anche l'India e persino l'Iran, ora qualcosa è cambiato: nel grande gioco internazionale del riarmo navale è entrato un giocatore nuovo, una nazione che, andando contro i desideri degli Stati Uniti, ha ordinato ai russi dieci sottomarini della classe Kilo.

Terrible, absolutely terrible. The plot had promise, but huge gaps in the story and timeline did little to improve the crappiness. I think the author tries to write like Tom Clancy's "what if" style, but he just really sucked.
This was my first Patrick Robinson book and I wasn't sure I'd like it because it had to do with submarines and other things I don't normally read about. Oh was I wrong - this book had me hooked from the beginning! Robinson takes you through the story and thankfully explains the workings of our Navy' Leggi tutto
It's an action packed techno thriller. Can recommend it to anyone who's in to Naval thrillers
I enjoyed this book. Well developed characters with good back story on a few. Good technical descriptions without being too dense in that regard.
Primero dos precisiones antes de la crítica. Estoy leyendo el libro en inglés para perfeccionar el mismo y son un fan acerrimo de Tom Clancy. Dicho esto, la novela me ha dejado sentimientos encontrados. Y digo esto porque la verdad es que el autor, bien asesorado tiene momentos en los que la acción m Leggi tutto
Any novel about intrigue involving nuclear subs is inevitably going to invite comparison to Tom Clancy’s work. And here the match-up is considerably less than favorable. Author Patrick Robinson does a good job with the techno-thriller aspects of the task, despite implausible plot twists (for example Leggi tutto
'Kilo Class' by all means is a very specific military (Navy) action-thriller that catered to that very reader(ship) group. Which leaves about almost all of us a bit alienated by the terms and turn of events that unfold in the story. I am not really sure if Robinson was trying to appeal to a wider de Leggi tutto
The book jacket described the story as "a taut, page-turning techno-thrillers the highest quality, grounded in fact and ringing with authenticity." I don't know if it is quite all that, but I was entertained while reading it. It would definitely fall into the techno-thriller category, as three count Leggi tutto
The second in the series of realistic fictional submarine stories. This one was better constructed than the first from a story standpoint. More complex plot construction, and an intricate weaving of story perspectives. It gained momentum as it went along and reached a natural progression. Looking fo Leggi tutto
Kilo Class' by all means is a very specific military (Navy) action-thriller that catered to that very reader(ship) group. As the title suggests, it's about submarines. I listened to the 2.5 hour version instead of the 16.5 hour version and enjoyed it very much. I imagine that I obviated all the subm Leggi tutto
