Kilo Class

Oned by the President of the United States Now the world's three most powerful nations silently lock horns Russia determined to deliver the submarines to Shanghai for a payment of billions of dollars; China determined to reclaim Taiwan by frightening off the US aircraft carriers; and the United States brutally determined that those Kilos will never fly the flag of China above their bridge. Kilo Class by all means is a very specific military Navy action thriller that catered to that very readership group As the title suggests it s about submarines I listened to the 25 hour version instead of the 165 hour version and enjoyed it very much I imagine that I obviated all the submarine detail and clutter that obfuscates the plot with minutiae Looking forward to continuing the story The Cursed Hole of the Shinoda Family payment of billions of dollars; China determined to reclaim Taiwan by frightening off the US aircraft carriers; and the United States brutally determined that those Kilos will never fly the flag of China above their bridge. Kilo Class by all means is a very specific military Navy action thriller that catered to that very readership group As the title suggests it s about submarines I listened to the 25 hour version instead of the 165 hour version and enjoyed it very much I imagine that I obviated all the submarine detail and clutter that obfuscates the Tusculan Disputations, I and Scipios Dream plot with minutiae Looking forward to continuing the story

Vered Kilo Class is about US attempts to foil delivery of the other eight The President's new National Security Adviser the irascible Texas admiral Arnold Morgan prepares to send the US Navy's deadliest Black Ops hit suads deep into dark Russian waters Their missions are executed under the most crushing code of secrecy One mistake could literally start World War III The decision is sancti. Kilo Class by all means is a very specific military Navy action thriller that catered to that very readership 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 demographic or bigger scope of readers with this book because reading through it I cannot help but to be confused with many things except if I were a serviceman As of any other books the first few front pages were dedicated to excepts of great reviews Which were fine except that many of these seems to include many military influencedrelated sources You can guess well who will love this bookTHE MAIN PLOT The Russians are preparing an order of the remaining seven out of ten Kilo Class nuclear powered submarines to China Three had been delivered and patrolling or docking near the Chinese waters The real intent of the huge placement of order was in the interest of capturing Taiwan and the territory around it Which also in effect would weaken or demolish altogether the American presence in the Pacific Of course the US of A will not succumb to that A Black Operation was ordered to make sure that the remaining seven will never make its way home Now here comes the problem At many instances the pace and flow of the story intersect between the author s self indulgent comprehension before returning to a path of general readership depth Robinson seemed to be engrossed in explaining a tale by his own knowledge of naval navigation and military terms at one point while the rest of us pondered what the hell was going on And then at one point he became nicer and kindly introduced or explained a few terms or facts that helped in the understanding There were a few maps of coastal margin submarine routes and even a list of central characters that ensured the reader will not be confused I however did not agree on that 80% of the time I got a good idea of what s going on 20% of the other time I just skipped all the other finer details Thankfully doing so did not affect the understanding of the story very muchIt didn t help to know that a US Navy Admiral was approached upon by Robinson to be the military advisory of technical matters I was hoping that maybe a proof reading by someone outside of the circle might improve the book for a general audience I describe Kilo Class as nothing than a skimmed through affair Too many central characters was not a problem Shifting focus was Going back and forth to the perspective of the American Chinese Russian side then moving to the smaller events was brilliant story telling But on whom should we be sympathetic with and which sides are we reclining on There seems to be no emotional elaboration worth noticing And for the rest of the time it was all about the progression of the tale rather than the characters You will not put yourself in the place of the situation but read the book as if you are a watching a movie Military action thriller author do not make good romance books The biggest issue however was the idea of USA being too effective and omnipotent Seven Kilo Class brand new submarines being sunken or destroyed one American sub and a few NAVY SEALS Being able to do so with no detection by either the Russian or the Chinese until it s too late Infiltrating deep enough into enemy territory without being caught all plans going rather smoothly without much glitch No casualty on the American side Are you kidding meThe funny part was that the Russians and the Chinese were depicted as being careful and gulp humane in their approach to declaring a counter attack Robinson crafted the story of how both sides measured the cost and effect of retaliation the implication of hastily triggering a possible World War III and global reaction should an evident military approach was initiatedIn contrast the Americans were nothing than a determined bunch who were so sure of their objectives The military heads and The President passing on the Green Light for the attacks so swiftly without an elaborate discussion of repercussions NAVY SEALS who killed civilian characters in order to get a job done without detection And let s not forget in all but one military aggressions depicted in this book the American was the first trigger They fired first they killed first Not even once in the story that an American was killed by a Russian or a ChineseI also cannot help but to detect a hint of American favouritism of Robinson s in the detailing of certain events and characters The elaborated macabre history of Russia s forced labour and the violent tendency of a Chinese Navy Command all seemed to suggest that the action is appropriate to the suggested nature That America is the Good Guy doing all peace keeping actions There were many plot holes and what ifs moments that I hoped were discussed greatly a few central figures was explained in the beginning but somewhat disappeared throughout until the very end Taiwanese actions and roles was introduced but again abruptly killed acting as a filler Coincidence of a sighting by one central character that lead to the main plot is just absurdIn the end I decided on a 3 solid stars for the rating of this book It was too much fiction based on factual idea I am sure that military purist may have enjoyed this book better than I would but I am also sure than the rest of us would think otherwise

The US Department of Defense is well aware of China's intention to shut the US Carrier Battle Groups out of the Taiwan Strait and then to reclaim by military force if necessary the rich independent island that sits only one hundred miles off China's eastern coastline A strike force of patrolling Kilos could achieve that objective for Beijing and two of the ten Kilos have already been deli. It s an action packed techno thriller Can recommend it to anyone who s in to Naval thrillers

    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 is there really no sub in the ent
